Dress: Triste c/o Gwynnie Bee | Shoes: Nine West | Necklace: c/o Sweet & Spark | Bag: J. Crew (old – similar) | Bracelet: Had forever (similar) | Lipstick: Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Poinsettia

This dress is the same as the one I wore in this post, but in a completely different pattern it gives a completely different effect. I love this print; it reminds me of a mosaic or stained glass and in some of my very favorite colors! Gwynnie Bee is so great, this dress arrived the day of this dinner which made it super easy to know what to wear the next morning. Nothing better than a freshly-laundered arriving in time for a morning of a wine hangover and too few hours of sleep! Click here to try Gwynnie Bee and get your first month free!

This necklace is from one of the coolest companies I have come across in a long while. Sweet & Spark is a curated vintage jewelery company. Jillian and her dad Howard travel about the country scouting the most modern costume jewelry from the 1940s-90s with the goal to make vintage jewelry cool again. Sweet & Spark believes that every woman is unique and should celebrate her personal style with something one-of-a-kind. In just two years, Sweet & Spark has been featured in Instyle's best of the web round up, on Luckymag.com and The Zoe Report and have fashionista Olivia Palermo as a customer and fan. Jillian was kind enough to send me this necklace and a bracelet (seen on Instagram, stay tuned for it to be featured here on the blog).  Visit Sweet & Spark to learn more about this great company, shop their collection, and learn how to host a Spark Party and get a 20% commission on pieces you sell at your event!

    You know one thing i like beside the beautiful dress. That little smile. It’s says so much. You look like you always are about to laugh out loud. It makes me smile too. Thanks Allie. I really am glad you decided to continue the blog, I get my life on your blog daily.

    I would love to see this with your blue handbag plus a more orangey-coral lip for summer 🙂 (I might have made this up but in my head you have a handbag that’s a very similar shade of blue to the pattern..?)

      I don’t like to tan, but I do get a bit of color in the summer that makes the orangey lip colors look better. Great idea! And no bag of this color, this is like a jade in person, reminds me of the Saturn I drove right after college 🙂

    I just checked out Sweet & Spark and found a necklace that I already own. I bought it probably around ’88 or ’89.

      Oh that is too funny! I do think of all the things I donated, sold, or got rid of and how they’d be back in fashion now!

  6. May 7, 2015 / 2:26 pm

    That’s a beautiful dress! The pattern of the two dresses makes them seem like completely different dresses!

    • May 8, 2015 / 2:44 pm

      They have the dress in at least a half dozen patterns, this is the third I’ve rented and they all give a completely different effect!

    Like this one too but there was some magic going on with the red one. The darker print panel was in just the right spot for perfect flattery…

    Thanks for the sweet mention! I love the white pendant back to bold colors. xx!

    Allie…I know I’ve said this before, but I love it when you wear some color—this looks incredibly fantastic (as did the red one). Love, love, love it!!! jodie
