Goya Blue Shawnessy

Dress: Diane von Furstenberg
Tights: Givenchy
Shoes: Miu Miu

This is a terrible photo of the best dress ever! (I really need to work on taking more flattering photos). This is the Diane von Furstenberg Shawnessy dress in Goya Blue. Goya blue is a fantastic color that I swear looks great on everyone. I have a wrap dress in this color, which I don't wear often enough, that I adore as well. The ruching on the Shawnessy makes it pretty flattering, even though in this photo I could have pulled down the bottom a bit, it was clinging to my tights. I love that DVF makes some great non-wrap dresses as well, since it can get boring to wear the same thing all the time. When I worked in an office, I was hooked to her wraps and couldn't get enough, since they were so versatile. Now they are looking pretty in my closet, and I try to find reasons to wear them.

I wore this last night to a fabulous dinner with a friend in DC at a restaurant called Il Mulino, which had some delicious Italian food! I am also proud of myself for wearing my Miu Miu pumps out. I really should wear them more often, since I spent a looooong time searching for these. I became obsessed with these way after they were in season, and after they went on sale, so it was pretty hard tracking these down. I eventually found them on bergdorfgoodman.com at a decent price (ebay prices were absurd!) and I finally had them in my hands! But the high heel intimidated me, and I've only worn them a few times. I feel like they are a bit outrageous for me, but the neutral colors in the shoe makes them go with a lot of different colors. Here is a close up picture of the shoes, along with my nude fishnets from Givenchy.
