Special occasion style // Blue Lace & Scallops

Bardot lace dress xs (also in black; see fit notes below), Gianvito Rossi heels (similar – have and love these which run half size big), Saint Laurent Kate bag

I wore this dress to my grandparent’s wedding but didn’t get a chance to take good photos of it until now! I’m a big fan of the Australian brand Bardot, and have a few pieces from them over the years that are always compliment magnets. Although the blue color I’m wearing is running low on sizes, this dress is fully stocked in black with some sizes left in burgundy. I love how the lower cut lining allows some skin to peek through, while the lace still provides coverage. Another plus with this dress is you can wear a regular skin toned bra underneath! Fit runs TTS to slightly small – an XS fits a little loose on me and would be ideal on someone who typically wears size 0. Measurements of XS is 15″ across the chest, 13″ across the waist, 39″ length from shoulder to hem.

Nordstrom has so many cute dresses right now for either wedding guest outfits or bridal activities. Another brand of dresses that I love and find to be more petite friendly is French Connection (sz 0 is usually pretty fitted on me, and oftentimes low customer ratings are due to a dress running small). There’s several styles included in the big summer sale event (I always shop this by filtering for clothing & shoe size), and for fellow Nordstrom cardholders, they’re also running a bonus notes event with up to $100 in rewards!

    What kind of jacket would you wear with this in the cooler months, say for a wedding? Beautiful dress!

    That dress looks absolutely amazing on you Jean. This kind of reminds me of the one you wore for your bridal shower I think. I love these types of chic lace dresses. Really lovely.

    I love this dress! And it fits you perfectly! And that style is very versatile – it would also be a chic work outfit.

    The hair, the dress, the clutch! Wow! You do such a beautiful job of styling the dress and making it into a fantastic look. This color is so nice on you and I love that you went with an updo to change up the outfit. I have a wedding I am going to later this year and will definitely try to re-create this!
