OOTD: Strapless Paisley High-Low Dress

This pink paisley strapless dress from Fashion Rush is one of my favorite dresses! I love the high-low style for dresses and skirts in general. And I love how the strapless cut fits in really well with the high-low – it makes it playful, young but covered-up.

As everyone who knows me is well aware, pink is my favorite color. I love how this dress incorporates different shades of pink, but it offset by the white so it’s not too overwhelming or girly. I also love the print – I’ve never owned anything paisley. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything paisley in a store! It’s not a popular print, as it’s pretty 70s-ish. But I think this dress does a great job of being fun without being dated.

Not too long!
Not too long! I’m able to show off my cute sandals.

But my favorite thing about the dress is the length. It’s long and flowy, but it’s not too long, so I can choose to wear sandals and flats with it. As pretty as maxi dresses are, my 5’6” self is too short for most maxi dresses, and they end up dragging on the ground…and pulling me down with them (I’m really clumsy). So I’m forced to wear really big heels anytime I sport a maxi dress.

Wedges work too.

Not so with this dress. I’ve worn it with these adorable sparkly gold suede sandals from Forever 21, as well as these massive brown wedges from Target. I’ve even worn it with flats and pulled it off! No matter what shoes I wear, the dress still looks great. Now that’s versatility!
