Modern Rococo

 photo 1_zps993a3565.jpg

I got this dress at the tail end of summer last year, and didn't get a chance to wear it until now. It was one of those chance finds at Buffalo Exchange, I was in and out of the store in five minutes, and didn't even try it on, but this is too good to pass up. The stripes, the rococo bodice, and the sweep! The thing is massive. 

I feel like a modern day Marie Antoinette would be right at home in this frock, it's pretty grand when a gust of wind catches the skirt. I can imagine some silver hair piled high would accentuate it beautifully.

What a stunning dress!
The shape and seaming are so unusual and to have those with those bold stripes... swoon

Seriously sublime!!! Marie would, I'm entirely certain, give this frock, how you've styled it, and your makeup (Bordeaux hued nails very much included) her royal stamp of approval.

Gorgeous! Check out this dress that Dita von Teese wore the other day... http://instagram.com/p/rSAxsGQrul/?modal=true I'm not sure if you care about celebrities, but the similarities in the dresses you two wore make for an interesting coincidence, if nothing else!
