Perforated LBD

cute-black-midi-dress

Happy Friday Eve, friends! Today, I'm sharing THE most perfect black midi dress. I wore it on the last day of the TBS Conference in Charleston and it was comfortable not only during the day but also for driving all the way back to Virginia that night. Sounds too good to be true, right?!

Perforated Midi Dress: J.Crew Factory {on clearance! Also available in bright orange} | Bucket Bag: Mark and Graham c/o | Studded Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff {on sale - 50% off!} | Monogram Necklace: Onecklace c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Monogram Cuff: Mark and Graham c/o | Lips: #47, #07 

I was skeptical when I first saw this dress on J.Crew Factory's website. I love the cut-out, perforated detail, the length and the slits on the side, but because it was final sale, I was a little leery. One good way to talk me out of buying something is mentioning "final sale". But I took a chance {living on the wild side!} and I'm so happy I did! It fits perfectly. True to size and the perfect midi length, with the slits just high enough. {For reference, I am about 5'8} It is a little low cut, but nothing a cami can't fix! As far as I am concerned, you can never have too many little black dresses, but if you are looking for some color, it is also available in a bright orange.

I decided to stick with blush and nude accessories for more of a summer look, but with a black dress, you can really accessorize with any color. If you follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy}, I posted a picture of these designer lookalike sandals the other night as a peek to today's post. They are currently on MAJOR sale -- 50% off to be exact! They have been my go-to summer flat sandal and can be styled with just about anything in my closet. 

As if there wasn't enough to love about this dress, it is also great for work. I've actually already worn it a few times during the week and I'm looking forward to pairing it with a cardigan or jacket as the cooler air sets in {which is hopefully soon!}. You know how much I love those versatile pieces!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for dropping by and see you back here on Monday!

  15. You know I always love a midi dress! Looks great. I am always leery of final sale too because I am fickle. I love knowing how tall you are. It's always so hard to tell on blogs. I'm almost 5'10'', and i always think it's helpful to know that info for sizing reference.
