OOTD: The Anna Scholz for Simply Be “Purple Frill Dress”
Today’s OOTD post is from the Anna Scholz for Simply Be collection. It’s the purple frill dress from the Spring 2011 line. I originally was supposed to wear this during FFFWeek but of course I over-packed and didn’t get a chance to pull it out until now. Simply Be sent it to me for review and what a great choice to have. I actually did get a chance to wear the Anna Scholz for Simply Be jumpsuit during FFFWeek and just like this dress, they are both made of the greatest stretch jersey material. One shoulder of the dress has a spaghetti strap and the other is a full strap that has a ruffle (frill) trimming that goes from the shoulder all the way down to the bottom of the dress. I didn’t realize that it was so low cut in the bust area but I just added a cardigan/jacket for sitting in the office. You will also need to wear a strapless bra with this dress. (Personally, for that smooth look under the dress I wore an Ashley Stewart butterfly strapless bra and my Skineez thigh-slimmer foundation). So with that being said you can take this dress from day to night just by adding a jacket and the right accessories.
Speaking of accessories, my shoes are from Bakers. I found them on the clearance table last month for only $19.99. I did a prior post on them being a replica for the BeBe “Natasha” Sandal. (Here’s that blog link: https://bellastyles.com/2011/06/26/the-look-for-less-bakers-vs-bebe/). The straps are stretch so they were an easy task to put on and take off. I really like them too. Since the sandals have mostly a cream color in them with some purple in the straps, I accessorized this ensemble with cream bracelets. These cream bracelets are the ones that were gifted to me from the “Project Style” contest I did a while ago. My other bracelet is a black one from Ashley Stewart but it has a little purple in it to accent the dress. I topped it off with these large pink feather earrings also from Ashley Stewart.
