When you think about an eyelet embroidered dress, chances are you see a white summer dress that you can wear at the beach. Oh, how a color can change the dress! Would you think of this black dress as such? The black makes this dress oh so much more sophisticated and glamorous, in my opinion, and makes the dress more versatile. Paired with a pair of black heels and a nice black clutch, it can make for a nice summer date night look. Wear it with a pair of black ankle boots and a white brim felt fedora hat for an edgier look, or simply make it casual like I did, and wear it during any summer day with a pair of black or white sandals (brown would work too) and a matching crossbody bag.

What I love about this dress it obviously its beautiful embroidery, but also the fluted sleeves that are very popular this summer. The dress is very light and breathable, but it does run big so make sure to read the size chart before ordering. Great news! This dress comes in several different colors, and all are so adorable.  I want them all, but the new colors that I’m most excited about are burgundy and mustard yellow.  Just in time for fall!

My earrings are an older purchase and they were perfect for this entire look. The bag is from Aldo, but I found other places you can buy it from as well. Details below:

Would you think of this dress as a Golden Globe Party number? I wouldn’t! But the way Alexandra Daddario wore it, made this dress look like a thousand dollar price tag dress. Yes, this dress is from Forever 21 ($30 one) and yes the actress did wear it for a Golden Globe party. It looks absolutely stunning on her. It definitely suits her Goth-like look and the beautiful crochet design really makes this dress look like a million dollars! Great choice in my opinion. What do you think?

Retro Topshop’s dress and the Lush’s summer look

These are my weekend finds! The first dress is Topshop. It’s a little bit retro, in my opinion, but it also has a flirty and feminine side. The ruffles on top add just a perfect amount of embellishment and I love the print and the color of the dress as well. I paired it with a little purple shoulder bag that I thought complemented this look nicely.

The black dress is Lush. It’s a perfect summer dress as it’s very light and flowy. I like that it has an opening on top and I love the half sleeve, as you can wear it on a cooler summer day.

Both of these dresses can be found on Nordstroms.com, or in the actual store.
