Fancy Fancy Fancy


Hello dears! I am Ashley of Fancy Fine, bringing up the rear of the Guest Blog Train. I was beyond giddy when Jennifer asked me to contribute, so I wanted to show something befitting my blog's name. Something fancy! So here it is, a fancy cocktail dress in the most perfect shade of creamy yellow, worn with a glittery J. Crew belt and my favorite vintage Ferragamos (which tragically lost one of their bows the other day). There aren't enough cocktail parties in the world to satisfy my love for dressing up, so I often just do it during the day and for no reason. A trip to the grocery store? Pull out the sparkle! I'm particularly excited for the holiday season because it means several of my favorite party dresses will get to see some action. Even if it's only at the post office or my favorite burger joint.

that is a great dress! I'm the same way about wearing pretty dresses - post office, lunch, what have you. Any excuse to dress up.

Dressing up for no occasion at all is what I do best(otherwise none of my vintage wardrobe would see the light of day)! And your dress it lovely, Dear! So pretty.
