Last year I was suspect of the off-the-shoulder trend. I really like it, but I wasn’t sure it would stick around, so I didn’t want to invest in a bunch of pieces!
Shop the look:
One of the best things about the trend is that you can rock it with a pregnant belly. (Actually, I’d like to give a shout out to whoever decided the trends for right now, because most of them can be flattering on a preggo!) And with a floral off shoulder print dress, especially one with a tie, it’s even more flattering!
I have to tell you a little story about this dress… I borrowed it from Shake the Tree, a boutique in Boston’s North End, and then went back to buy it because I had it on my mind and decided I had to have it. Well, of course when I went back it was sold out in my size! I tried so hard to track it down, even contacting the brand’s creator in LA, thinking I could hit up their flagship boutique in LA when I was in SoCal if necessary. Well… no luck. Apparently it was such a popular dress that it sold out. Fast. Everywhere.
So let’s all take a lesson from this little story, and if you love it, buy it.
Have you ever had a piece that got away? What was it?
