Sheer Maxiness

I was so excited to showcase this dress - it is amazing!  So I went to my very first sample sale a month ago and was quickly engulfed in racks and racks of clothes, heavennnnnn!!!  After getting my pile together I quickly narrowed it down and ended up with this number, that to be honest I didn't even really know what it was until I tried it on I just like the sheerness.  Anyway, the dress actually has a drawstring around the waist that I have covered up with this belt to add a pop of colour to the look.  But this dress is so amazing because as you can see I've styled it up for today but it's also going to serve me well as a bathing suit cover up to the beach!  The look will completely change and it's versatile pieces like this that are fun to play around with for wear.  Since this is completely sheer I've just worn a little cotton bra (that happened to have the same criss cross back as the dress) and a little black mini skirt to still expose quite a bit of skin.  Another alternative would be to wear a full slip or to have fun with it wearing neons underneath.  So much to do but I hope you liked how I've styled it in a more dressed up occasion for today!
Dress : Gestuz  |  Belt : BCBG  |  Shoes : Zara  |  Purse : Michael Kors  |  Necklaces : Aldo  |  Earrings : Club Monaco
