It’s time to take a look at my very favorite dress from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” collection…the Jael-Abalone.
This dress is similar in style to the Selena-Sun, one of my favorite pieces from this year’s spring collection. It has the same fun collar, square neckline, and asymmetrical row of functioning buttons down the front.
A detail I didn’t know about until I received the dress is the gorgeous and subtle tone-on-tone pattern found on the cuffs, collar, and belt…I love it!
I also love the colors of the dress…blue and grey are so pretty together, and the gentle stripes add just the right amount of visual interest!
I accessorized with a silver brooch, a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles, and a pretty floral ring, plus a hat and gloves:
I love the elegant simplicity of this dress!
It’s such a smart look!
I now have half of the items on my wishlist from this collection…I hope the other pieces are released soon!
My second purchase from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” autumn/winter collection is a dress I almost didn’t get, the Magdalia-Lee swing dress.
Because I knew that stock would be limited, I was ready to go before the items were released on the website, but sometimes, luck just isn’t on your side, and what I assume was the only dress available in my size was gone before I could click “add to cart.” Not for the first time, Miss Candyfloss graciously pointed me to one of their online stockists, Nostalgie Shop, where I was able to order the dress. I continue to be impressed with the customer service I receive from Miss Candyfloss!
This is a lovely swing dress with a checked skirt in navy and lilac. The simple neckline is lovely, as is the way the colors of the dress change a bit in different lights.
I chose blue and lilac accessories to accompany the dress, including a Splendette stack, a favorite Erstwilder brooch, and a cute hat.
The dress has plenty of twirl!
And it also has the most important feature…pockets!
I’m so happy Miss Candyfloss was able to help me find this dress online, because I can already tell it’s going to be a new favorite!
