Colorblock + sunblock

Dress: BCBG (similar here & here), shoes: J.Crew (similar on sale here), clutch: Lilly Pulitzer (similar here) bracelets: Baublebar, J.Crew and Gerard Yosca.
This very feminine frock is my inaugural color block piece. Before this dress, my short stature kept me from assimilating into the color block craze. I was won over by long vertical stripes that actually elongate. Major plus. 

Crisp pleats give it depth and the ability to survive wrinkle-warfare as it is tightly packed in a carry-on suitcase. The fact that it comes embellished with a contrasting sash deems it a worthy travel companion since additional accessories are completely unnecessary. Except for sunblock. Sunblock is a given.

      Hi Carlina! Thank you so much, darling dear! I love, love, love the name Allergic to Vanilla. At first, I thought ‘how sad, vanilla is divine’ and then I realized it is a metaphor. Just a great metaphor. 🙂

    Just wanted to stop by and say that dress is brilliant and you have a really nice blog. I love meeting fellow Bay Area fashion bloggers (found you through Caity’s blog). I read your About page and it’s so funny. Great nickname you have!
