I purchased this dress actually last year from A.L.C for another event that was canceled due to snow! I could not let this dress go to waste & luckily, this dress is timeless and the perfect staple LBD. I am sure I will get plenty of wear out of it. These shoes, while very expensive, are truly an investment. I wear them nonstop and I swear they really pull together any outfit. The red toe makes these particular pair unique and with the bottoms, these shoes give the perfect pop of color. I chose to do my hair this way also to be different from everyone else but still have my hair out of my face and be fun, it turned out to be everything I wanted. It was a huge hit! Happy Wednesday!
