I love shift dresses!! I love the loose fit, the comfort, the ease, and the potential to belt for a whole new look. The right shift dress can be so extremely versatile! The one I am wearing today was a Cyber Monday steal from Piperlime (and unfortunately now sold out), but no worries I linked some similar dresses that I are just as great. The cobalt blue color of the dress only enhances its versatility. It really is the perfect shade of blue. I think this shade of blue is great for so many different events, like weddings, showers, work, happy hour events, theater events, I could go on and on. Not only is this a great shade of blue for an array of events, but the accessory options are just as endless. A shift dress is great for pulling out the super long necklaces, but the crew neck of this dress will also go great with a showstopping statement necklace. You could go with something bright like yellow or coral, or a darker shade like a black or maroon statement necklace, and they would standout perfectly against this color. I have also worn my trio of gold necklaces with this dress for a fashion event. Then there are the shoes, again the color options are endless. I love pairing this shade of blue with a red or dark pink. For all my petite friends out there, a nude shoe is a great way to create an illusion of length for your legs. Nude shoes are my secret weapon when I forget to hem a dress and the length is just a tad longer than it should be for my height. While this shade of blue is bright and bold and can stand alone all by itself, this color also works great as a neutral to allow other pieces to standout as well.
On a different note, I am so excited about my new ABOUT page. When I first started my blog, I wrote one that I liked, but I can’t lie I was not in love with it. BUT over the weekend, I felt super inspired and finally sat down and wrote a new one. I am so in love with it, and feel it truly expresses me, my love for personal style and fashion, and my inspiration behind Lady in Violet. I had to take a moment to give it a mention because I am so proud of it. You will have to check it out if you get a chance. Have a great Monday and a fabulous week!
