As we anticipate the transition from August into September and cooler temperatures, we’ve put this gorgeous teal dress by Gucci on our list of must-haves!  We adore the “flirty” construction of the flutter sleeves and the pleated skirt alongside the structured wide self-banding at the deep v-neckline and waist (you know we are suckers for a bit of yin and yang in all things!).

The slight bumped “cap” at the shoulders gives the teal dress a retro feel that makes us want to take it for a spin on the dance floor but we know it will be equally perfect for the office,  a daytime wedding, or a special luncheon before the weather gets too cold.  We styled the dress here with one of these venues in mind but imagine it also at night with a gorgeous caramel mink bolero like the ones in this Luxe Gram  posted last week!  Yes ladies, get out your dancing shoes, grab those wedding gifts, and ink in those lunch dates!

We show the dress with fun and flirty accessories that are also very practical and versatile wardrobe additions.  We love, love, love these beautiful gold drop earrings from Lissa Jewelry. They are, as with all the earrings we’ve worked with from Lissa, substantial without being too heavy for the ear.  The wonderful movement you get from this drop hoop design echoes the flirty teal dress’s movement as well.

The Etro leather clutch is decorated with an ornate iconic paisley and gold cupid motif. This is a really fun bag and a great size. We also see it with amazing metallic pumps, distressed jeans and a leather bomber jacket for Friday nights!

The pop of gold in the accessories we styled is so rich against the deep luxe color of the teal dress and the combo really heralds the arrival of Fall with all its rich colors and layers. Please contact us for shopping details on this look!
