Alice & Olivia – Alyssa Embellished Party Dress

{ Alice and Olivia – Alyssa Embellished Party Dress }

It has been “awhile” since an item has has made my heart skip a beat, but that is exactly what this Alyssa Emblelished Party Dress by Alice and Olivia did to me. At first glance, there’s no doubt that it’s a beautiful dress, but when you break it down and look at the details, it’s the simple things that turn it from beautiful to stunning. A neutral hue. A simple silhouette. Delicate silk fabric. Shimmering silver sequins & beads. A ruched waste. A cut-out back.

I also can’t help but notice that the embellishments are most sparse at the shoulders and hem, then gradually radiant towards the waste, making it the defined focal point; which for most people is their smallest part and therefore the most flattering. An accident? I think not.

This is a party dress indeed and I can’t help but swoon over it.
