Concrete Catwalk // Bougainvillea

May 3, 2011
had to get gussied up for easter dinner with the fam
and pulled out my little silk minidress with another silk tank dress worn as a slip.
i couldn’t resist this bougainvillea color in the store
because it reminds me of the big bushes of dark pink flowers that you can find all over scottsdale.
(unfortunately, my mom’s weren’t in season, but you should see them at christmas here!)
i finished off the look with another necklace and ring of my nana’s
and some snakeskin heels with a little pop of neon in the pattern for good measure.
dress – forever21 (similar)
slip – banana republic dress worn as a slip (similar)
necklace – vintage, nana’s
heels – carlos santana for macy’s (similar)
bag – vintage, antique store (similar)

    Love the pink dress over the blue dress/slip! Also your jewelry is amazing. It is so awesome to be able to wear pieces from family. It always makes me feel closer to them. :)

    I adore vintage jewelry! I have gotten some of my best clothing items from my grandmother and it makes them so much more special. The color of your dress looks so great on you! I love this :)

    pretty much ALL of my most valuable and meaningful pieces were given/passed down to me by my nana… so much more special when your things have a story and have come from someone in your family. :) glad you gals agree!

    Oh my goodness, the color of that dress is so beautiful on you! I am originally from California and bougainvillea is one of my favorite flowers…I miss it here in CO! Love the cut of the dress, too.
