New York & Company Strapless Striped Mesh Dress

I hope you are all having a fantastic week! Like many women, I am a huge Disney fan. So when the trailer for Beauty and the Beast was released earlier in the week, I was beyond ecstatic. After a recent shopping trip with my best friend, I came across this beautiful mesh dress that immediately made me think of Belle.

The shoes I selected for this shoot are by Chinese Laundry. I have to tell you all that I have been admiring these shoes since Christmas. By the time I was ready to give into purchasing them, they beautiful fridge heels were no longer available in my size. Thank the Lord for Nordstrom Rack! I love these shoes so much that I purchased them in two colors. You will get a chance to see the red version of these shoes next week. You are sure to fall in love with these Chinese Laundry stilettos you are a fan of fringe. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Putting Disney references aside, this strapless dress is beautiful! The dress is made out of a mesh material that does remind me of a think crochet pattern. With this dress, I did stay away from any bracelets or bangles as I did not want these items getting caught on my dress. Instead, I decided to add a belt that will compliment my tiny frame. Be sure to look through your closet to see if you have any fun belts that you can use to compliment this dress. The belt is old but is certainly still very stylish and useful.

The best part about this entire look? It is under $100 USD. With summer around the corner, you can rest assure that this look is going to look great at parties or a date night. Keep in mind that a cardigan or jacket are also great additions to this look. Is yellow not your color? Not to worry! This mesh dress is also available in a mint color. If you choose to purchase this dress, I hope you feel as regal as I do in it!
