French Connection Black and White Summer Bark Dress

Kate Spade Shaken and Stirred Earrings

You could say this French Connection dress was love at first sight. I actually had been fawning over THIS French Connection dress for months, but didn’t want to pay full price for it/order it online. If I can try something on, I’d much rather do that than buy it online. My local Dillard’s has had the black version of the dress I wanted, but I was pretty relentless that I needed the white option in my life due to my dark hair. I had also kept my eye on the dress I’m wearing today, almost as a backup option in case my beloved windowpane one never came to fruition.

I had stopped at Dillard’s last week, and saw a ton of the black dresses just sitting there, but no white ones. I was devastated. Then, out of nowhere, I looked up and spotted my “backup” white dress on another rack. Things are a little blurry, but I think I sprinted those short ten feet to the other rack. Nobody was getting in the way of me and this dress. Even better? My size was sitting there, AND marked down! The fashion stars had aligned in my favor. I continued my sprint to the dressing room, and was immediately let down when the dress was a little too tight on my chest, and the side pockets were completely on my backside. I was feeling totally defeated, until the nicest sales lady came in and assured me French Connection runs extremely small, and brought back a dress two sizes bigger. It fit like a glove, and I could not be more in love with this comfy summer dress! I love that the white creates the perfect contrast with my dark hair, and the paintbrush print is so chic!

    I love this Olivia! It’s a gorgeous dress and I’m so glad you were able to find it. French Connection definitely has weird sizing. I have a French Connection striped dress and I bought it about three sizes larger than my typical size. I’m not sure why they don’t adjust their numbers.

    Super cute! I just ordered the black & white dress (gotta love when they go on sale;)

    The Kate spade earrings look great! Are they heavy?
