Roses, red and lovely

Me, in Roses Dress

I couldn’t resist any longer. Roses, in vibrant pinks and reds, have been reappearing everywhere around me – online at least. I’ve been scouring Etsy for unique and vintage items to include in my wedding registry, and roses have been popping up in my searches over and over. This past week, I stumbled upon this crazy wonderful Thompson Fifteen dress (below), and it inspired me to break out my own LUX rosey dress (above) for work. With bright turquoise pumps for our favorite Mexican restaurant or with Steve Madden leather boots for work, this cotton jersey dress makes me feel really glamorous and totally comfortable.

It amazes me how the same flower can be romantic or retro, whimsical or edgy, soft or neon, classic or just plain cute. Now, to share my other rose inspirations:
