A Piece of Orange

Originally I had wanted a jewel-toned dress for Shelby's wedding in September. The day I searched the net, determined to find one, I happened upon this lovely orange Alice + Olivia number, not a blue or green hued dress as I'd palnned. Since Shelby is encouraging us to wear bright colors to her nuptials, I thought it might be perfect. Also perfect was the fact that it was on sale, so I ordered it right away. Paired with light gold heels, some turquoise jewelry and tanned skin, it just might work for the event!

Saks Fifth Avenue

A day or two after I purchased the dress I saw some photos of Brittany Snow wearing it and thought she looked adorable.

The dress is now in my possession and I really like it, but its a titch too big. The length is fine (surprisingly), but I think there's just a bit too much fabric. Luckily there is the sash, which nips it in, but I am having troubles trying to get it to look just right on me. A couple of days ago I saw Khloe Kardashian wearing it sans sash and don't think it looks as good without. Maybe I can have it tailored.....but it always ends up being so pricey and it doesn't seem to be the easiest (i.e. least expensive) dress to have taken in - layers of material, type of fabric, side pockets, bubble hem....*sigh* Perhaps I'm just being too picky - I suppose I'll need some in-person opinions before I make my final decision.

LOVE IT! I think it looks best with the sash, really show off that waistline girl!!
The model wearing it may be wearing my Choos! :)
I think even simple gold jewelry would look great with it too since it's such a bold color! Can't wait to see it on you in person!

I love the dress and think perhaps you should try it with a skinny gold belt? Instead of the sash? Just a thought. You always look fab for all occassions! I know you will make it work!

Thanks friends. I most certainly need to wear it with the sash or a belt - no shape without. I just don't know if its too frumpy/unflattering b/c the there is too much fabric (no more smaller size available).....
