Last week I headed over to the Rue 107 showroom to check out their sale. I have been an admirer of Rue 107 for years, their bold prints have always stood out. This line is not for the faint of heart, it's bold in your face and you will stand out in a crowd.
Let me introduce you to the Mercedes Swing Dress in the Lovely Print. I love the bright shades of red and cobalt, and the funniest thing about it all, is that my name means Lovely. So I guess you can say it was fashion kismet that I found the only one on the rack and it fit me. I am wearing a 1X in the dress, but I usually wear a 2X in their clothes. I did try on the swing top, but since it was cropped, it hit in the wrong spot so I passed on it, but the dress looked super cute. It is a little snug across the chest, but that is usually the case with me so as long as I was not uncomfortable I went for it and bought it.
Since this was a sample sale, the dress is no longer available, but if you love the print, they do have other silhouettes available. The Marion top (the cropped swing version I tried on) is available, as well as Muni Scuba Skirt and Miriam Scuba Dress.
I will definitely get a lot of use from this dress. For a more casual vibe, I would swap out my cobalt sandals for some sneakers. These are oldie but goodies from Vince Camuto, but I have found a similar pair that are super cute.
Well this lovely in her lovely dress is out to enjoy this weather. Can you believe we are a week away from the unofficial start of summer??? Jeez this year is flying. Later lovers!!!
