Flower Bomb

5.20.2012


Alexander Wang military dress, 
Xhilaration floral button-up dress (worn as a blouse- similar style here
Vintage crossbody bag.

Programming Note: Lauren's back! Whew. But in all seriousness, thank you guys so much for all of your lovely comments on the last post. Lauren will corroborate that I was freaking out about getting in front of the camera for you all. So thank you for reading, following and supporting us!

Now on to business per usual. Would you believe that the flower blouse Lauren is wearing is actually an extra large dress!? Well, it is and leave it to her to crop-tie it over her Wang army fatigue dress and call it a day.

Lately I've been more aware of little details and how the small things can make or break an outfit. Alexander Wang is especially good at adding these elements to his designs, and in this look I especially love the black zipper accents. They immediately take an otherwise basic shift dress and elevate it to crisp sophistication.

  15. Ok, this look rocks my world - I am obsessed with the floral button up dress - I would have never thought to crop-tie that sucker. Brilliant! The Alexander Wang military dress is classic with a side of edgy and I looove it. Such a cool combo.

  18. Definitely agree, apart from that gorgeous teal colour of the dress, the zipper details really make this piece special! Genius the way you've styled the dress as a blouse, and the purple of the bag works brilliantly with the green tones! Awesome look! xxx
