Military Dress

I didn't exactly need a new frock for a wedding reception last weekend, but I changed my tune once I tried on J.Crew's ikat bustier dress . The print is best described as a camouflage-watercolor-floral motif. In short, it's perfect for autumn's military trend without being quite so stuffy.

Outfit Notes: J.Crew Ikat Bustier Dress; Banana Republic Clutch; Forever21 Ring; Forever21 Earrings; Vintage Bracelet; Jeffrey Campbell Shoes; Revlon Steel-Her Heart Nail Polish

  15. Jessica you pull this dress off beautifully. I can see why you had to scoop it up and run off. It looks wonderful on you!! You can totally slap on a pair of tights and a light jacket over top, too. Yay!

    btw - I love your ring. It is amazing.

    xoxo,

  25. I agree that this dress has just a touch of the military trend, but looks so sweet at the same time. By the way thanks for reminding me I need to pick up a dress for a wedding reception I'm attending next month.
