I have several events coming up that require I wear a formal, floor length dress.  When I began considering different options, I looked for a dress that would be appropriate for a variety of occasions.  While it’s ideal for a formal affair, it can easily be dressed down with wedges, a high pony, and stud earrings.  I love how the crop-illusion provides a bit of contrast to this full length, solid color look.  The lightweight fabric flows so pretty when I you walk, and you all know how I love wearing fun, flowing pieces.  What are your thoughts on the crop-illusion look this season?
