BCBGeneration Beauty





Outfit
Dress: BCBGeneration via Loehmanns (Only $29 after my coupon and 10% member..fashion STEELE!)
Belt: Vintage/Thrift
Necklace: ALDO see more of my statement necklace collection HERE!

This is my favorite dress at the moment. I love the deep V neck, the pockets, the tulip drape like skirt.
This necklace from ALDO promply fell a part after I took these photos. I was so sad. There was a loose string and I pulled it and there went the necklace all over the floor. I almost cried. I saved the pieces and plan on reworking it as a DIY.

I am loving ALDO for accessories. I love their shoes but I am an American size 10 and the 41's they carry don't convert to an American size 10...they are more like a 9-9.5.
Thus I don't own one pair of shoes from ALDO. They just don't make them big enough for my feet.
 I wish they would get their sizes together because I do love their shoes.

I plan on wearing this dress to a wedding next month.

Do you all think this dress is wedding acceptable?
Does any one else have a problem with the sizing at ALDO?

  6. Girl...that's so crazy b/c the only shoes on this planet that fit me are Aldo's 41s. And I am a 10.5. As you can see from my recent post, I STAY buying shoes from them lol!! Just try staying away from their shoes that are really narrow in the front.

    And I love the dress!! The shape is very cute. I think it's definitely wedding appropriate...then again I wore a backless dress to a wedding recently so I may not be the person to ask lol.

  7. Loooove the tulip shape as well! and great obiesque belt with it. I don't find Aldo shoes comfy at all so I never buy their shoes even though they do have some pretty amazing styles!

  8. You look great. I had no idea ALDO shoes didn't go up to a 10 that's stupid. I have large feet for my height and chicken legs but I'm a 9 so the only issue I usually have is SOLD OUT problems -_-

    The dress may not be dressy enough for a wedding but with different accessories it could work well. Oh but depending of the tim the wedding is.

    Dearest,

  10. I'm a 9 1/2 and can't wear Aldo shoes either. Always too big or too small since they don't do half sizes, so frustrating because they have very cool shoes. Oh well.
    Love your dress, fierce! Especially with the hot red lips.

  11. That's quite sad about the necklace...it is gorgeous! But, I am sure it will be even more gorgeous when it is reworked.

    It is usually hit or miss for me with Aldo shoes. I wear a 10 also, but sometimes their 41s are too small, other times they are too big. However, I still own SEVERAL pairs of their shoes! I love their shoes and handbags.

  13. Ideeli had a sale on BCBG shoes yesterday. Among the shoes featured were the ones you have on in this pic and the black version. They were selling them for only $60. I was soooo tempted to buy them bc you wear them so well, but i decided to save my my money instead.

    Great outfit!!
