Dressing for Dressler's




I have had this Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch-inspired little black dress for a number of years now, though, recently it has laid dormant, following its popular debut at an academic-centric fraternity formal I attended with a friend, and then re-styling at the university spring fashion show. As I was packing for last weekend, visiting my friend Diana and her crew in the city, I excavated this piece from the back of my closet, literally, and decided to refurbish the awkward length belt tie with this vintage costume brooch. With a longer skirt, pleated, and a classic plunging neckline, this dress is very traditional and serves as a great accessory canvas. Dressler's is a generally casual but nonetheless elegant restaurant in south Williamsburg; rhinestone resplendent dresses are by no means a requirement, but, they do tend to add a delightful ambiance to a meal.

  2. You look AMAZING. And the brooch at the waist is just perfection. I might have to borrow this idea for my Saturday night ensemble. With full credit, of course!
