I never thought I needed a yellow dress until I came across this particularly jaunty one by Staud. I was stalking the Los Angeles-based brand's site hoping to find one of its Alexa Chung-approved bucket bags with a newly reduced price when this bright and lemon-y mini leaped out at me. Upon clicking on what can only be described as a sartorial ray of sunshine, I discovered the pink and red raffia fringing along the hem, which makes it look as if it was dipped in a summer cocktail party.
I spoke about my perfect warm-weather dress that I'd make memories in a few months ago, but if I add this one to my closet, I'll just have to ramp up my summer social schedule; I'm that person who buys outfits and finds occasions for which to wear them after. I would wear this dress with white slides, a bucket bag and perhaps some dangly cherry or watermelon earrings — I'm going to look like a lemon slice already, so I might as well round the look out with more fruit.
