Ordinarily, if you were to say “sequins and fringe” to me in the same breath my response would be “too much.” But somehow, this dress just works. Maybe it’s the unassuming t-shirt silhouette + slightly oversized shape, but it feels manageable and I really love how it moves when I walk or dance… it puts me in an instant great mood! Just keep the rest of your look simple. I opted for my go-to black pumps (they’re the most comfortable!) and a simple metallic clutch.

One word about the fit. On the product page it’s described as very fitted and as a mini dress. I actually thought it ran big. I’m wearing my usual size (medium) and while I like the oversized shape (it’s nice to have a party dress you can eat in), if I wanted something more fitted, I would have sized down.

    This is the perfect party dress! Too bad I didn’t know of this dress a few weeks ago for NYE or my birthday!

    Sometimes a fun dress is really all you need to ensure a fun night ahead! Definitely a statement maker, but you pull it off effortlessly.

    What a stunning dress! I love how it’s the classic LBD, but amped up. This is definitely a statement piece that will have you standing out in the crowd (which is probably why I love it so much).

    I also have the same reservations about sequins and fringe together lmao. I mean, I actually feel like that about both of those by themselves!

    If these things can be subdued, I could be down – just like you talk about in this post. Good choice with simple rest of the outfit. You look amazing! Those pumps in suede would be sick!
