Snowed In

Feeling slightly uneasy as I write to you at 3 am on a Thursday morning. Although i’m entirely relieved that New York Fashion Week is over,  I’m feeling a little anxious as a snowstorm is suppose to hit tonight. Majority of my friends’ flights have been cancelled , and they now cannot fly out until late sunday or monday. I got an alert this morning that my flight will be delayed by 5 hours, and has yet to be cancelled. As I talked about in my Valentines day video HERE, I’m trying to get back to the hubs on time for Valentines Day. I’ve had a little special something planned for him, so i’m crossing my fingers that plans will still go accordingly.

Anyways when I saw this dress on Forward by Elyse Walker the other day I immediately knew I had to have it in my closet. The contrast of the black and white scalloped details all along the neckline & down the arms is what really caught my eye. And I love that although this is long sleeved, there is still a bit of skin peeking through the sheer fabric throughout the front and back of the dress.  Such intricate detail that really makes the LBD stand out from the crowd.

To see if I make it back to LA in time make sure to follow me on Instagram & Twitter! Wish me luck!

It is a wonderful outfit. What I wonder is if it was warm enough?

Maria E ( February 16, 2014 at 8:06 PM )

Stunning dress! It’s the perfect amount of sophistication with the long sleeves and scalloped detailing, but the perfect pinch of sexy with the hem of the dress and the mesh material that shows some skin peaking through.
