To me, this dress looks like something a sexy 1960s Italian MILF would wear to the funeral of her rich third husband whom she never really liked that much anyway. In other words, I had to have it.
The embroidery, the lace, the nipped waist, and the sheer paneling are all things that make this dress really stand out from the racks of other summery dresses--and I think this one could last long into fall, easy peasy. Plus, I'm really into midi-lengths right now. There's just something so awesome about not having to worry what underpants you're wearing when you bend and snap. Which I do all the time.
