Citrine Dreams: “The ‘IT’ Dress”

15% off with PROMO CODE: theFFFashionista //

Dresses.” // They’ve come a long way. No longer are they just for the traditionally feminine, girly-girl. Whether your style tends to lean in the more edgy, preppy, or perhaps boho direction // there is a dress out there for every single Fab. You know how the saying goes, “Every girl needs one L.B.D. // Little Black Dress // in her closet.” Well, I couldn’t agree more. But, why stop there? In addition to your LBD, My Fab, you must own a versatile dress, one appropriate to throw on for any occasion: ie. wedding, happy hour, first date, Sunday brunch, the list is endless. The trick is, this dress must be a classic style to ensure it’s multi-functional, but also a unique enough to set you apart.

This is why I’m in love with my Citrine Dream Dress from the online retailer Black Swan Boutique. (On sale now for $59.00 + an additional 15% off when you use the PROMO CODE: theFFFashionista at checkout. #bargain!) This dress has that classic, timeless style that survives year after year, and trend after trend. The classic style is a must for a versatile piece, but so is uniqueness and personality. The deep, rich citrine hue of my Citrine Dream Dress adds that extra uniqueness and detail which is when // Queue the music, // the compliments roll in…

This frock flatters a wide variety of figures, which makes me even more of a #belieber. Whether you’re 4’8” or 6’2”, a size 00 or a size 22+, the fit is on point. The sleeveless dress has a pleated waist detail that will conceal any areas you may prefer not to flaunt, such as your midsection, backside, or thighs. In addition, the length will never be too short for you tall gals or too long for you petite ladies. If you are more petite, it will be a more of  tea-length style which is completely on-trend and utterly adorable paired with booties, high-heels, or strappy, sexy stilettos. If you’re a bit taller, the hem will hit just below or above the knee, making it appropriate for any occasion, including church, temple, etc. (Please say a prayer for yours truly while you’re there, will ya?)

I’m all about a cool city girl vibe, so I paired my Citrine Dream Dress with my favorite MINK PINK: Retro Round Sunglasses, $14.99 from T.J. MAXXStitch Fix Necklace, vintage clutch from Grandma Lorraine’s closet, and my $15.00 Candies Booties from Sears (similar here.) That’s it, FABS. I think we’re all ready to hit the town running! // Just please be careful in your booties…they’re awfully high.//

So remember this My Fabs, the L.B.D. is a staple, // but the Citrine Dream Dress is a must have.
