If I were forced to pick just one item out of my closet, this dress would be it (I hope this never has to happen). I actually got it for Christmas last year, and wore it for the first time about a week ago. This is one of those dresses that you want to save for a special occasion because you feel amazing the second you slip it on. The second I saw this dress on Piperlime, I knew it was going on my Christmas list. As someone who loves anything and everything with a bow, I was convinced that this dress needed to be in my life. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I was checking Piperlime’s website (far too often) to make sure it wasn’t sold out.
I was even more impressed when I tried the dress on Christmas morning. The ponte knit material is thick, which is nice because it adds the perfect amount of volume and creates a more feminine look. Also, any dress with pockets is a winner in my book. I finally had an opportunity to wear it when I went to a fundraiser my dad was hosting. The worst part was when the night was over, because I couldn’t accept the fact I had to take the dress off! If only I had a reason to wear this gem all the time.

It’s gorgeous! I would totally walk around pretending I was Catherine Middleton allllll day and night if I had it! 😀
Thank you! That’s exactly how I felt when I wore it! It’s just one of those dresses!
This dress is beyond gorgeous. So amazing! You kind of remind me of Kate Middleton, and I definitely mean that as a major compliment 🙂
Thank you, Maria! That is such a nice compliment because I love Kate Middleton 🙂
Love a dress with pockets – this one is so pretty! The bow makes it perfect for any party. 🙂
Thank you, Christy! I am OBSESSED with the bow!
What a pretty dress! It looks great on you! I have a few of those ‘special occasion’ dresses that make me wish for more special events.
Thank you, Grace! Aren’t special occasion dresses the greatest?
Such a timeless dress! Don’t you just love when an occasion comes along that lets you pull out a dress you have been waiting to wear?!
Thanks, Cara! Yes, that is the best feeling! I wish it happened more often 🙂
Love this dress. the nude color is perfect and I love how feminine it is. I can def. see it being paired with a bright shoe, or lip, or even a bold statement necklace. It really is a great special occasion dress. Would be great for Christmas party with a sequin blazer.
Thank you, Heather! I wore a bright pink lip with this, but it’s hard to tell! It definitely would be cute around the holidays 🙂
This dress is such a classic. And you can see, even in pictures, how the fabric really helps keep that ladylike shape. You look amazing, as always. I say create occasions to wear this beauty. Cocktail party anyone? 🙂
Thanks, Katie! The fabric is amazing, and adds some great shape! Great cocktail party attire. And perfect for the Derby!
