Friday Florals

Ermergerd, it's Fri-yay!  In honor of the weekend, I showcased a gorg "party" dress for you guys today on SS.  I have it in quotes because it works for day AND night - versatility FTW.  IMO it's a totally fab summer dress, too.  The fab dress is available HERE for $33.  
If you're a fan of cool prints and cut-outs, this piece is a must-have. The back has a triangle cut-out - I'm really sorry, I totally forgot to snap a pic for you guys - which you guys can see here.  FYI, I didn't wear a bra with this dress.  It looks completely fine without it because of the material and print.    I'd say the only con is that the lining's a bit short - I don't really mind though.  It's a really cute dress, and it flatters my body for sure.  I'd say the quality's comparable to Forever 21.
I accessorized with mad bling today because I wanted to go all out.  My fab earrings are c/o Berricle - if you guys missed my spotlight of 'em, clicky HERE.  They really know how to do affordable luxury.  These fab babies seriously look real.  If you're interesting in shoppin' their site, make sure y'all take advantage of their Fourth of July sale.  Use code JULY30 to get an extra 30% off.
Clutch:  c/o Lily Rain || Dress:  c/o Oasap ($33) || Earrings:  c/o Berricle || Shoes:  c/o Deb

PS.  Make sure y'all enter my fab giveaway with Karelen to win a bunch of magical bath/beauty products!  I swear, the coconut scent is beyond amazing.
