Memoirs of a Geisha (See Jane Wear)

French Connection dress (similar), ShoeMint heels (c/o), Rebecca Minkoff bag
I originally planned on buying this dress (holding out for it to go on sale, of course) but when I saw this French Connection version for half the price at Nordstrom, I quickly snatched it up.  This isn't one of those dresses that I'll wear often, but I do think its classic silhouette and print is one that will stand the test of time for summers to come.  Not everything you own has to be versatile, but it's my rule of thumb that you should absolutely love it.

Great dress! I love that you made the print modern by pairing it with a pink clutch and metallic heels.

Half price? What a deal! And such a beautiful dress too. I never would have thought of adding a pink clutch with it. Good idea.

this dress most certainly will stand the test of time and you look flawless in it. I love the neckline and the subtle slice of skin that shows on the back is perfect.

I had that dress on my wishlist for months! So sad it sold out at the sale price before I could get my hands on it. Love it!!! It has a vintage, hippie vibe that I love! Looks amazing on you.
