This white ruffle dress has been around the block….she’s seen it all…and she has undoubtedly been with me through thick and thin.
I remember back in 2008 when I purchased her….I was visiting my mom in Fort Worth and we popped into a new boutique that had just opened around the corner from her house. I mentioned to my mother that I had a date that night, and lucky for me, when I spotted this LWD (little white dress, duh), mom footed the bill and said, “Good luck tonight!” Naturally, that boyfriend is long gone, but this dress has remained a staple in my wardrobe!
You might remember when I paired this dress back to neons and my infamous Spike the Punch necklace here, or even when I showed you how to transition your favorite summer dress into fall here….but now I am using this feminine dress by layering it over all back and mixing it with a fun print, like camo! (Style tip: Investing in a great shift dress, whether its white or black, will do your wardrobe a huge favor…you really won’t believe all the ways you can mix and match it, just make sure its a fabric that you can wear 12 months out of the year!)
Anyone else out there have a favorite staple like my white dress that you can mix with anything?!
