ModCloth Halftone Honey Dress // Faryl Robin Suede Pumps // Vintage Earrings (Mom's in the 80's) // River Island Bangles // Sephora brand lip liner in 18 'Pinup Pink' // MAKE UP FOR EVER Lipstick in 37 'Satin Bright Pink' // American Apparel Nail Polish in 'California Trooper' // OPI Black Shatter Nail Polish

all the details

ModCloth twirls

I have quite a few weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, etc. to attend over the next year. I use these occasions as the perfect excuse to purchase new dresses (pants, skirts, blouses, purses, shoes...you get the picture). I ordered this particular dress from ModCloth specifically for a friend's wedding in August on the Sunshine Coast. Choosing a dress to wear to a wedding can be quite the art form. You want to look good, but not better than the bride and bridal party. You want to be comfortable, but still formal enough for the reception. Sexy, but cute...it's all quite tricky. I was really happy with the cut and fit of this frock though, and can't wait to wear it to the wedding this summer!

Where do you buy your summer dresses?

  1. You look beautiful! I love the teal heels with this dress!
    Hmm I buy my summer dresses from my work or from West Edmonton Mall. I have a lot of dresses, so I try not to buy new ones for weddings. But sometimes I can't help it! haha.

  3. Alicia! This is a far fetched comment (because you always look amazing) but I think this might be my favourite look from you ever! Your hair, makeup and outfit are all flawless. :)

  9. Love Love Love those teal heels; pairing them with that dress is super unexpected but works really well.

    I usually end up getting "special event" dresses from Asos, they sell really unique stuff for pretty decent prices. And free shipping is always a plus.

  10. I love those bracelets!!! The dress looks great on you too, jealous because the one-shoulder look is a look I myself cannot pull off.

  14. Gorgeous! I love the dress and pumps together.

    I too have a wedding in August that I need a dress for but it's a Muslim wedding so I think the dress definitely needs to be on the conservative side. I haven't even begun to think about what I'm going to choose.

  19. This dress is precisely the reason I have never ordered from ModCloth- if I do it once, I will never be able to stop. I love that the dress looks pink from afar but in the close-ups you can see those tiny, adorable polkadots. And the bright lip + green shoes are the perfect finishing touches. So, so gorgeous.

  22. This is seriously stunning Alicia! Definitely one of my favourite looks from you ever. Not only would the dress have been beautiful on its own, but the way you styled it with the teal heels and jewellery is perfection. And you look gorgeous of course. Hope you're enjoying your weekend love :)

  24. This is so pretty, you look gorgeous! I love that this outfit still shows off your personality, so often you find that people end up looking cookie cutter at big events, all wearing black strapless dresses.
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend! xx

  30. those shoes are pretty amazing......
    I am glad you know the rules of wedding appropriate attire. I just got married in May and one of the girls in my Bridal party was upset about having to wear a matching dress with the others because she wanted to pick out her own dress--- when I saw the one she wanted it was WHITE! but she ended up going with the one I picked for her, thank goodness!

  31. Such a gorgeous outfit! Love the heel and dress combo.

  32. Yup- you're officially one of the most gorgeous girls I know. Not to mention that is a beautiful dress (the colour goes so well with your skin tone) and the pretty shoes!!! Also, totally love how you did your hair. Is there a tutorial in the works?

    I usually get my summer dresses (if they're casual) at Forever 21, H&M, and consignment shops since I like to switch them up!

    Hope you're having a great week Alicia!

  39. Now however, some companies have seen the demand for wide fitting and comfortable Isabel marant trainers and do have got a small line up with custom sized footwear for any in need. Having said that, the market is continue to in dire need of variety in regards to off-the-shelf custom sizes. With that in imagination, let us look at most commonly requested wide fit footwear sold in the market.
