This year has been the year of weddings. We have been to three since late June. My brother's was the most recent. He got married just over a week ago. I typically invest in a formal dress once every couple years. Because formal dresses are more expensive pieces and don't get worn often, I always look for a classic style so ideally, I will eventually have a nice selection of formal dresses for weddings and events that I can choose from. I wanted a new dress for my brother's wedding and luckily had some credit to thredUp ($20 referral code here), so after much deliberation settled on this one from Tracy Reese. The colors and lace overlay was a little out of my style, but my husband convinced me. And I am so glad he did. I love the look of it and it was perfect for my brother's big day.

  16. That is a gorgeous dress! I love the lace detail on the top. It's awesome to find a great formal one at ThredUP since they are often more pricey pieces like you said.

  37. My favorite dress for this summer I have seen so far. A good husband always knows what's best for his wife, no kidding....

  38. This is my favorite dress look you have done ever. You have a lot of pretty dresses which you have styled beautifully but this takes the cake. I am glad your husband convinced you. You chose the perfect accessories for it too. I need sone nude straps stilettos like those. Also the necklace and color blocked royal blue clutch were great. I bet you were the best dressed at the wedding. The rich berry shade and dark lining of this dress would make it great for the holiday season too. Wear some black opaque tights and black pumps with some gold jewelry and a gold clutch. Hope you like my tips.

    Stunning look, Laura.
