There are certain pieces in my closet that I reach for again and again because they make me feel amazing and this beaded dress from French Connection is one of them. I tend to feel most comfortable in dresses that are short (show off the legs) but slightly boxy (hide my middle) and this guy is just perfect. On top of that, it has pearls, which are my (and everyone else’s) obsession right now. I wore this for the first day of fashion week festivities… (you can see it in action here + here.)
Also, slightly off-topic… go buy this lip color NOW. It’s from Bite Beauty (a new favorite) and is truly the perfect red-orange. It’s also all natural (you read that right) and stays on all day. It’s like, my dream product.

What a great dress. It really looks a piece that you could so easily transition from day to night. I haven’t though to check out French Connection lately, need to go check it out! Love your stack of bracelets.
