Ever buy a dress online that takes you completely by surprise? That’s what happened with this Eva Franco “Sheen Come True” dress. I bought it on a whim because it was SUPER on sale at ModCloth, but I had my doubts. Turns out it was a dress I should have bought ages ago – I’m in love!
From the pictures on ModCloth, I had thought the dress was made out of a heavy fabric. But it turns out it’s pretty lightweight – and actually stretchy – so it’s got a super nice flow. And it lives up to its name – it has a really lovely sheen, almost like a textured satin. Plus, I kinda love the dress’ 1960s vibe!
Oh, and it had been way too long since Rocky made an appearance, so he joined this shoot. But I think he felt a little affronted by having been left out of my other posts!
I paired the dress with the vintage-style “Heirloom-inous Earrings”, also from ModCloth.
Oh, and by the way, check out Rocky’s bow tie! I think he strikes a perfect balance between cute and dashing. :)
So that’s it – just a fantastic dress and a goofy dog that helped lighten up my day!
