Contemporary feminine-excess drips from each seam of this day-to-night office look. Naively dreaming of a forever-summer, this dress is airborne with layers of cream pink ruffles that dance in the dense Washington breeze. As though waiting to instantly break out from the office, the pink tone is interlaced with shimmery strands of silver. Ever youthful, this dress says I know what I’m doing but I haven’t been here too long. Continue reading
