Tie Dye Minimalist

Dress - c/o Sugarlips Apparel, shoes - Nine West, earrings - UO 

Look at this fabulous dress Sugarlips gave me!!! My very first gift from an online fashion store. You have no idea how bad I wanted to squee all over my blog when I first got the email. It's always fantastic to be offered gifts, but to be offered a high quality, amazing item that you would have picked out for yourself had you discovered it on your own? Priceless.

And of course, the dress arrived on a difficult monday, made my day all the better. I can't paint a clearer picture than to tell everyone my room was a mess when I received the package - I'm pretty sure I paired the dress with every piece of clothing I owned. But then it occurred to me - less is more (a philosophy I have a hard time adopting some days.) If you can put intricate earrings (there goes that Edie Sedgwick inspiration again) with a dress that speaks for itself, you don't need volumes of accessories or other add ons.

I could have really gone buck wild with the photos, as me and my photographer traveled around for an entire afternoon to find *the* best shot. But I held back. With much difficulty.

Unfortunately, the dress is currently sold out. But here are some other items I fell in love with (click on the picture):

As you can see, they have a really diverse collection and I'm sitting here thinking of at least 20 different ways you could wear each item. Pretty cool, huh?



  1. you're such an emma watson look-a-like!
    Beautiful dress!

    Don't forget to enter my give-away!

  2. Beautiful! You are a gorgeous young lady. You make everything you wear and everything around you beautiful!

  3. Yes! Very, very nice!

  4. So I'm still thinking that your hair should be darker. You definitely make this hair style work. Also the highlights are a stark contrast to the darker hair. I would go darker to make it look more natural (though no highlights would be best, imho). Forgive me for the reference, but I was thinking of the Alice Cullen character played by Ashley Greene in Breaking Dawn for my visual reference. The naturally darker hair, pale skin, and longer, thinner neck are some things that stick out as similar. Love what you are doing! So proud of you!

  5. looks great! you make the dress look amazing!

  6. great post and lovely outfit!
