Wicked Tulips Farm // Eliza J. white lace dress review

flower fields hunter rain boots boston fashion blogger

Last spring I discovered this little Rhode Island farm, Wicked Tulips, via Instagram, but it was about a week too late. I made sure to mark it on my calendar for this year, since the blooming window is very short and subject to weather conditions! We finally made it out there and I was in complete flower heaven. The fields were so much bigger and more beautiful than I expected, and they provide these cute little baskets and buckets for picking your own tulips. Sadly they just sold their last tickets for this year, but I hope some of you were able to visit after my IG posts (and if not, definitely plan ahead for next April – May!).

I’ve had this dress for a while now, but it’s one of those pieces that I fall a little more in love with each wear. It was sold out last year and then there was a similar version, so I’m thrilled the exact style is now back at Nordstrom in both white and navy (see it on me below)! This isn’t one of those pieces that sit in the back of my closet waiting for special occasions … I always find a reason to break it out, and have dressed it down a number of ways including with a denim jacket, an army green utility jacket (a surprisingly cute pairing), casual flats, or even rubber boots!

And here’s my Eliza J lace dress in the navy option, in the original length. As shown in my previous review post, I had carefully trimmed off some length on my white one along a scalloped row (see picture below), and then did a basic hem job on the two layers of lining underneath. The lace hem is not prone to fraying, but if you’re concerned about that, you can dab anti-fray (from any craft store) along the cut edges to help seal them. Unfortunately Eliza J doesn’t make size 00p, so I did also take-in the waist on size 0P for a more fitted look.

    I like too much your dress and your rubber boots look wonderful with bare legs. Your feet remain clean and dry the whole day. A very nice choice! Only a little question: isn't it difficult to take these rain boots off when you put them without socks?
