this week's FASHION magazine style panel challenge was right up my alley.  i have a ton of weddings to attend this summer, which is of course the perfect excuse to get out there and buy a new dress (shoes, jewellery, heck an entire outfit).  it was a no-brainer when i spotted this floral cocktail dress at barefoot contessa, i knew it had to be mine.  it's cute, and slightly sexy, and stands out without being too over powering...exactly my style! i can't wait to wear it to a friend's wedding.


check out the rest of my tips on what to wear to a wedding, as well as advice from the other beautiful ladies of FASHION’s style panel!

  16. oh Alicia, your choice is just beautiful! i love the colors in that darling dress and for some funny reason i'm craving a snow cone right now :) probably cos you look so darn COOL!! it reminds me of a lovely English Garden where Cynthia Rowley would be holding court with a group of stylin' ladies and you'd be at the very front of the scene.

    i'd say this challenge got its comeuppance - nice job lades! happy mid-week bliss. xo ♥

  18. You are so pretty, Alicia, and so is that dress! I feel like you should be twirling around in it all day. Love how you picked up the mint and pale pink hues in the dress through your accessories.

  20. I would have saw that dress on the hanger, and assumed it was just way too crazy to pull off! But you look absolutely ADORABLE in it!!! And I agree, you seriously have the best hair ever. Do you curl it? And what kind of iron do you use (if it is an iron, and not rollers).
