Chiffon Pleats

Dress & Belt: Courtesy of Foley + Corinna, Hat: F21, Necklace: Flea

Receiving this little piece of heaven from Foley + Corinna on Friday was the absolute best treat to kick start my weekend off right! What's better than chiffon pleats in the form of a maxi?! In. Heaven. I of course ripped it immediately out of the box and proceeded to disrobe as fast as I could so I could slip that baby right on. I may or may not have pranced around the house in it but we can just leave it at that. 
In the picture the dress looked elegant, classy, and chic, but in person it was an absolute billowy dream. The low back is the perfect amount of understated sexiness, and the belt is absolutely brilliant! 
If you haven't seen the RTW line I would suggest you head over there this minute and see all of the beautiful elegance gracing the page....pure genius.

xoxo,
Nicole

Can't decide if the dress is perfect from the back or the front or just perfect on you. And the belt just completes the whole look.

That dress is divine.
On your long, lean frame it is perfection...on someone short and stubby as myself, I would possibly resemble Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid.

This dress is so frigging amazing it makes me want to punch kittens. Not really. I mean about the punching thing. The dress is fan-frigging-tastic. Foley & Corinna reps - if you're reading this, I'd be HAPPY to take one of those babies off your hands.

merci!
