Shift Dress + Stan Smiths

I didn’t do a whole lot of shopping in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale… I don’t really *need* anything, and I’m trying to seriously downsize all of my things for the time being. (More on that to come!) However, I couldn’t say no to a few things that I tried on. This dress was one of them, as was this one.

Bows & Sequins wearing a Gucci-inspired lace dress with a red and white striped bow neckline.

I absolutely loved how the striped ribbon-like detail at the neckline was so very Gucci… With a price tag under $85, I had to have it. (It comes in black, too!) This dress would be super cute with sandals or even heels, but I was wearing these Stan Smith sneakers at the store the day I tried this on and loved the sporty vibe of the outfit. (So much so that I wore it to lunch the very next day, ha!)

    Love it! As soon as I saw the bow I thought Gucci and then kept reading and saw that great minds think alike!
