Salut mes beautes intelligentes, and Happy New Year to you all!

This outfit is a bit of a throwback, as I wore it a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I'd share anyway! My favorite things about this dolly dress are the brilliant embroidery, the beads embellishments and the gentle pleats. I feel like a fairy-tale character whenever I have this dress on, like the princess of some magical castle!(Ok, maybe that's a little over-board, but you get the gist). I'm starting to notice a trend in my style (a recent development), but I find myself gravitating towards pieces with intricate beading! I just can't get enough. You can't blame me really, what's not to adore about them? :)

Forgive the quality of the pictures below, they were taking with my phone, and don't truly capture the beauty of the dress. I thought I'd show you what how I styled this dress in addition to the detailed pictures above. I opted for an all nude look, with nude heels and a nude purse, but in order to prevent looking too washed out, I wore this red fall jacket. I love that it is close in length to the dress!

Oh, one more thing! I picked up this phone-case/wallet from Victoria's Secret, and I just thought I'd share how helpful it has been, in case someone's looking for a good phone case (you see how I always look out for y'all? Lol). Being quite clumsy (yes as you must have figured, I drop my phone a lot), I had been on a hunt for a good phone case that covers the phone screen, preventing it from cracking. However, most of the "heavy-duty shielding" cases just weren't for me in terms of style. So far, this case has been an amazing! I have had it for about six months, dropped my phone a couple of times, and not a single scratch, win!! I love that it also serves as a wallet and a clutch. If you have an iPhone 5, and you're interested in getting one, check out this link. It's probably on e-bay too, although I bought mine at a VS store. :)
