Do you ever envision the perfect dress in your mind only to be sorely disappointed when you spend hours and hours searching to no avail for the real life version of it?
That was the case with my dream pink party dress. In my head, it was hot pink, fun, and feminine. I searched the internet to no avail for this dream dress. After weeks of hunting with no success, I was about to throw in the towel when I decided to check out the ASOS website.
I’m already a pretty frequent ASOS shopper, but they add so many new arrivals every day that I don’t always see new pieces that get added to the site. I went to the dresses page and scrolled mindlessly for around nine pages. I really wasn’t expecting to find what I was looking for, but rather just killing time looking at clothes (one of my favorite past times!). That was when I came across the most gorgeous pink dress from Miss Selfridge.
It didn’t even feel real at first! It checked all the boxes of things I wanted in a dress. I love pieces that are fun and elegant and not too revealing. Plus, this silky shade of pink just screams ‘party’.
Joe and I attended a wedding back in June and that wedding was the reason I was on the hunt for a pink cocktail dress to begin with. Plus, I wanted one just to have for future occasions. I wore this exact look to the wedding, and it was the perfect wedding guest dress. Sometimes it can be hard figuring out what to wear to a wedding, but I always like to shoot for the colorful and feminine route.
