The Beaded Mini

Spring has sprung! It’s mini time. I am super excited about it.

I wore this beaded mini to a party last Friday night and I felt so glam.  I love the structured cut of the dress and the jeweled beading on the front of the dress is exquisite. Due to the fact that it is pretty “leggy”, I like that it is conservative around the bust and sleeves. The key is balance! I kept the look simple with my favorite Kate Spade nude pumps (an investment!) and a new pair of Tod’s sunnies. The sparkly beading on this dress required very little jewelry or accessorizing. This dress can also be worn in the fall due to its dark color, although tights would be a must if it’s cold outside.

I felt like a rock star shooting in the West Village in this look. We even had a puppy interrupt us, at one point. How beautiful is the iron work on that townhouse, and how cute is the 7 1/2 address? Love love the West Village and West 4th Street 🙂

I landed this dress from one of my favorite consignment stores, Second Time Around. Be on the lookout for a cool collaboration we are doing together in the coming weeks! 8 4 2 3 7 6 5 1
