Fashion Play - Spring Lauren Blue Dress

Note;  This was written over a year ago and  I never got around to posting.  Last year in May I was planning my second Cruise and this was an outfit I planned.  Better late than never, so enjoy.

Stay tuned as I clear out some older post that never made it to prim-time.  


Today's center piece is Lauren's Ruffled-Overlay Lace Dress. The color is Hydrangea. This shade of blue is a color I wear well. Here are more details from the Lauren site: 

Delicate lace creates an intricate floral motif in this form fitting dress, which is accentuated by an eye-catching overlay that cascades across the neckline. The shell is viscose, cotton, nylon. Lining polyester. V-neck front and V-back, with concealed center back zipper/hook-and-eye closure. 

Starting cost is a little pricey at $175. However it is now 30% off with one discount and an additional 30% with another code.  Definite maybe for an upcoming cruise's formal night.     

All of the other items can be shopped around and I have shown the Calfskin Ricky Cross body purse to the right. This signature bag style is crafted in full-grain calfskin pigment-dyed in the season's signature blue. Priced at $1390 it is not for the faint of wallet. This is not something I own or would consider, even with the 30%+; off limits. It will look just fine with my Michael Kors Vivian, Medium Leather Messenger bag in White.  

2018 Cruise
This dress is a little like a white dress I wore on my cruise last summer. It is beautiful but the problem I had was with it's length. Even with heels, It was too long and with the lace work at the bottom, it cannot be hemmed without changing the design/look. This dress does not seem to have that problem. Plus on me I find the V-neck design to be more flattering. For formal night on the ship last year I wore it in 2018 with yellow shoes and accessories.   

Yes, cruise planning again.  Stay tuned...
