Ballerina Blush

Dress: Ted Baker     Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad    Bag: Ted Baker (similar)    Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick 

I fell in love with this dress months ago while shopping in the Ted Baker store.  When I tried it on, I felt amazing.  It was perfect in every way- the length didn't look weird on me like other midi dresses do, and it had lace, scallops, and a bow belt.  I remember flipping over the skirt in the dressing room, trying to find the materials tag, praying 'please don't be silk', and being met with a confirmation that this dress was vegan friendly.

I have a problem where I grab things I like and try them on without looking at the price tag, and it's quite harmful.  Already in love, I checked the tag and was met with a glaring price at nearly $400.  Damn.  It was hard leaving the dress there that day, and I didn't forget about it.  When I found it on sale last week, it was almost too good to be true.  Not sure where I'll wear it, but the feeling I get when I put it on is too good to pass up.

FYI, Ted Baker is actually surprisingly vegan-friendly, and it's where I got the fabric clutch I paired with the dress.  This dress doesn't need much accessorization, so I just added a glass-pearl bracelet, neutral heels, a clutch in a coordinating color, and that was it!

  4. Super cute look! That is the freaking best when you're actually logical and don't buy a $400 dress, and then it's like the universe rewards you and you find it on sale weeks later!! So amazing haha. Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you Emily! I've actually also had the opposite problem where I can't wait to buy it, then weeks later I find it marked WAY down. :-( Have a great weekend!
