Pretty in Pink

I have been waiting to use that title.

When I pick out a dress I look for a very simple and sleek silhouette. It always works on me and it's no fuss. It's not that I don't try different silhouettes, it's just that they usually don't look good on me. When I did the Pomp & Pageantry photo shoot and Shellie suggested a Myne pink silk dress with a fuller tulip shaped bottom I wasn't convinced it would look good on me. Then she told me Kim Kardashian owned this dress in multiple colours I knew I would HATE it...well I was wrong. The dress is beautiful and works because of my curves, not in spite of them. The colour is perfect for summer weddings and it was recently featured on Toronto Beauty Reviews blog.

Dress, Myne. Necklace, Pomp & Pageantry. Belt, Joe Fresh (old). Shoes, Jimmy Choo (old). Clutch, DKNY (old). Cuff, Joe Fresh (old).

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I know mine has been nice. Lots of little helpers while I am taking my photos and rain for the last few days. Memories I will treasure in the future...trying to appreciate them now ;).

My newest obsession is Instagram. You can find me @ivagrbesic. Come and say hello.
