These photos make me laugh. Not because I do not like them or anything, but because I look so put together. The truth is, taking blog pictures is not so glamorous. Minutes before we shot this look, I was racing down the embarcadero (in four inch heels) while my
friend assistant was tying a satin bow around my wilting bouquet of flowers. Meanwhile, my car closet on wheels was parked in a passenger loading zone. I.e., you only have 30 minutes before you get the “boot” – literally! Picture this: me modeling, my hair flying, my #InstagramFriend capturing footage for Insta stories, all while keeping an eye on the photographer’s equipment and the time. No wonder I forgot my matching pearl earrings!
And that was just the first look…thankfully I got my “ish” together for the second shoot. Anyway, today I am so excited to share this faux pearl dress! I know I am not the only one with holiday plans now through the New Year. For those of you “partied out” I can relate, but this spicy number will do all of the talking for you!
Now how does one style a faux pearl dress with tassels? Very minimally! Less is never more in the Kelsey Kaplan Fashion handbook, but this dress is the exception. Hah! That’ll probably be the last time you hear me say that! Anyway, I kept things simple and styled this stunner with white and nude accents. I had big plans to show you how it would look with an ivory fur coat, but I forgot that as well. #SendHelp
