If you’re going to go all out and traipse around in a bold, yellow beaded dress you have to shoot it in a setting that’s equally as grand! That’s why the center of the Roebling Bridge was a no-brainer for the occasion.
If you live in the Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky area, then you know that the bridge has been closed to traffic for repairs. If you’re not from around here, the Roebling Bridge is an iconic landmark in Cincinnati. When it opened in 1866 it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The bridge served as the inspiration and template for the Brooklyn Bridge, as both were created by the same person!
The Beaded Dress of My Dreams
Now that we’re done with the history lesson you didn’t ask for let’s get to the outfit. I have this (bad?) habit of immediately purchasing things that stand out to me as unique or are “me to a T” when I find them online.
Sure, there are plenty of purchases that I may sit on for a few days or wait until they go on sale. But then there are times when I see something and know that I won’t regret purchasing it.
I also have this fear that if I don’t buy said items immediately then they will already be sold out when I do decide to pull the trigger. This is especially true of ASOS, which is where I got this yellow beaded dress. Luckily this dress is still in stock in almost every size, but you just never know!
Yes, this dress is not something I’ll get to wear on a frequent basis. But it’s just one of those fun pieces you want in your closet. I’ve always adored the flapper era, and I am hoping one of these days I’ll get invited to a 1920s costume party. To me, this dress is the modern interpretation of something from that era. The length and vivid shade of yellow give off a fun, modern feel that I cannot get enough of!
