Do you want to know what my summer wardrobe consists mainly of? Pretty summer dresses. Seriously, I think I might be obsessed. Whenever I’m on the internet I find myself searching for dresses. It’s like I’m completely unaware of the other clothing categories. In my mind, nothing can compare to a delicate, flowing and feminine dress. One of my biggest issues has been finding summer dresses that are unique. I spend a lot of time looking for stand out pieces that everyone isn’t wearing, but I’m not always successful. For that reason, I get a surge of excitement when I discover new designers and fall in love with their clothing! Then of course there’s the sudden disappointment that comes with knowing their clothing is unattainable from a cost perspective. In my quest to find affordable luxury dresses, I stumbled upon Alice McCall. This Australia born designer not only has a flair for beautiful, one of kind pieces, but her clothing is also affordable. Prices range from $200-$500 and she has PHENOMENAL sales!
Today, I’m wearing the Deja-Vu Embroidered Cotton Dress. I am crazy about this dress! I absolutely LOVE her use of scalloped edges in her designs! Just wearing it to take pictures got me SO many compliments. A dress like this needs very little accessories and additional frills because it speaks for itself. That’s why I didn’t wear a necklace and chose to wear only a plain pair of nude ankle strap sandals.
Here’s my look:

It’s never too soon for me to start thinking about what to pack for my upcoming trip to Cape Town, South Africa. One thing’s for sure…this dress will DEFINITELY be going along with me! Stay tuned because I’ll be wearing another one of Alice McCall’s designs later on this week!
What are some of your favorite summer dresses?
Until next time…
