I've been in this mood lately where I buy clothes for trips I want to take. No plane tickets have been bought, or hotel rooms reserved. I just decide in my mind that I want to go to some destination and then start building a wardrobe around it "just in case". I 100% believe this has been subconsciously encouraged by my late-night Pinterest binges. This dress from Make Me Chic is for my imaginary trip I'm totally going to take to Morocco. I just want to match all the exquisite tile work, you guys. This dress has such a resort vibe, and I love the colorful tapestry-like detailing that runs down the front. The dress itself is so lightweight, it almost has a gauzy feel, but the embroidered detailing has some weight to it which I really liked because it's a sign of quality. I can't stand when I see a piece of clothing with what I think is really beautiful detail work, and it turns out to be printed on instead. One such a light dress, the embroidery adds color and texture - two of my favorite things!
Full disclosure - the neckline of this dress is a deeper V, but I pinned it shorter to make it more socialite and less salacious. This is part of my fashion fantasy - in my mind I don't have a large chest so I can wear all kinds of backless/strapless/plunging bohemian garments...but no. I mean, I can but I always have to alter it a little bit to make it work for me. I'm very stubborn when it comes to something I want, I will buy it and make it work. I don't care how many safety pins or stitch rippers it takes! Custom fits are better anyway, right? When I do take this jetset dress on a trip, I'm going to drop the neckline again and use it as a swimsuit cover-up. That's originally how I wanted to shoot this dress for you guys, so I'll probably have another round of photos on how to style this on the beach come birthday time in March - stay tuned!
