on fire

July 31st, 2011

Coming home last week to this dress from Foley and Corinna was the final, amazing highlight in an incredible July.  The moment I saw this dress on their website, I was head over heels in love, and I almost can’t believe it’s mine!

You guys know how much I love sequins, but these copper sequins take my obsession to a whole new level.  The whole dress seems fire-inspired to me, between the beautiful scalloped bottom and the way the light makes the sequins multifaceted.

Also, I have to say — this doorframe is like midget-sized, right?  I’m 5’2″ regularly and only 5’6″ in heels, and I feel like a giant in these photos!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  My whole family got together for the first time in quite a while (since Christmas, I think!) and it was so nice to have everyone together.  I didn’t wear this dress for it — although I wanted to.  Copper sequins at 10 a.m. are A-OK in my book, but Chad disagreed.  🙂

Guess I have to save it for Fashion Week then!

On me: Gifted Foley and Corinna dress, gifted Chanel sunglasses (via Lenscrafters), Rock & Republic mesh sandals.
