I love when you find an item that just makes you feel good.  This dress  definitely makes me happy.  It’s just one of those dresses that you want to twirl around in.  It would make a great outfit for a Summer wedding, Church or even work.  Is this not the prettiest dress you’ve ever seen? It’s so perfect for Summer.

Ann Taylor foldover leather clutch Chicwish Dreaming of Hana Printed Prom Dress Ily Couture double wrap crystal pearl bracelet J.Crew elsie fresh strawberry suede pumpsI love the red floral print against the cream background.  It’s bold but still classy and elegant.  Conservative but still sexy.  I love it to pieces and the best part is?  It comes in extra small petite!
Ann Taylor foldover leather clutch Chicwish Dreaming of Hana Printed Prom Dress Ily Couture double wrap crystal pearl bracelet J.Crew elsie fresh strawberry suede pumpsHere are the measurements of XSP:
shoulders 13′, armpit to armpit 16″,  armpit drop 7″ (8″ original), waist 13.5″, total length 36.5″.
The only thing I had to alter were the straps. They were a bit long so I took them up one inch on each side.  By doing so, the neckline is a little bit higher and it made the armholes smaller.  Make sure to measure properly if you are doing it yourself.  The waist is loose on me but doable.  This dress is fully lined and machine washable.  I was afraid the length would be too long but luckily it’s perfect on someone my height (5′ tall).

  1. Thank you so much for sharing. Do you know of any good pump that is around $50?

  2. Those pumps are PERFECT with that dress! I really love the full ladylike skirts and dresses and great to know there are some petite friendly options! You inspired me a while ago to order the black and white striped skirt from ChicWish and I picked up a blue pleated maxi skirt in hopes of wearing them on vacation in Italy (channeling my inner Grace Kelly/Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday of course!) Only thing that’s a bummer is ChicWish’s shipping takes quite a long time! I’ve ordered on the 17th and my shipment has not arrived ughh I’m so anxious but hopefully the wait will be worth it!

    • Hi Joanna! Aw thank you! So jealous you’re going to Italy! We’ve been there twice and want to go back again. lol Shipping does take a while but it’ll be worth the wait. Keep me posted! 🙂 XO

  3. This is beautiful! I love this dress and those boldly-colored pumps. You are a beautiful rose with this fabulous floral dress. And of course, you boast the sweetest of smiles and hairstyles to complete the look. Fabulous!
