Happy 6th day of Christmas! I'm a strong believer that Christmas time starts November first. Why have one month of Christmas Spirit, when you can have two?
Ivy City Co was with me on this one, and sent over two of the dreamiest dresses I've ever seen to style for the holidays.
This pretty blue number is the Anastasia dress, and I gasped when I took it out of the box. The embroidered detailing on the bodice & sleeves reminds me very much of a British designer brand, whose dresses are 5x the price of this one! The sleeves have the perfect flutter to them, and I love that they're lined. The skirt is the real show-stopper here with the tiered tulle. It was snowing and horrible outside when I took these pictures, but this dress managed to make it feel magical.
This dress is called the Whimsical dress, and I don't think I'll be able to describe it better than that. This might just be the twirliest dress in my whole closet, which is quite the accomplishment. The layers of tiered, Swiss-dotted tulle & ruffled detailing gives it such stunning movement. My husband actually told me I looked like a princess! And I absolutely felt like one. Even twirling around in the snowy-gunk in downtown Minneapolis.
I loved that Ivy City Co makes all of their own designs, so these dresses are something you won't find anything else. They are unique, charming, and have this unabashed femininity I just adore. And the quality lives up to the sunning designs. They gave me a code to share, you can use EmilyB15 for 15% off site-wide until November 19th at 11:59pm- perfect time to find your holiday dress!
