The Best Cocktail Party Dress

I just HAD to do a post on this dress. As soon as I saw it come back in stock, I rearranged my posting schedule to let you all know! You all remember it from our engagement party, right

After I posted it, I was flooded with DM's and as I re-wore it to different events throughout the winter/spring season, I kept getting questions. It sold out pretty quickly so I know a lot of you have been on the hunt. I ended up wearing it to a rehearsal dinner and a wedding, so I got 3-wears out of it last season and I will likely get several out of it this fall/winter season, too. Which is saying something, because typically I only re-wear a cocktail dress once a season, but I got lucky with 3 totally different groups of people for last season. 

While I love the blue hue that I have, this emerald/evergreen is STUNNING. It's so deep and rich and so perfect for fall/winter. What a great Christmastime dress this would be! I know that seems far off, but I'm telling you: act fast because it will be sold out again. I'm hoping they come out with more colors this year, too! I'll keep an eye out. 

The top is stretchy and the bottom has the most beautiful metallic sheen to it. It has such a classic silhouette. It's ladylike and modest but dressy and not stuffy. I am obsessed and could not love it more. 

It's not necessarily a midi-dress but it hits me well below the knees and I am 5'6" for your reference. It runs true to size and the only thing really fully fitted is the band around the waist so if you are between sizes, you could definitely size down since the top is stretchy and the bottom has a full skirt.

Was so inspired by this post that I HAD TO HAVE this dress. Sydney you really presented it in the best way possible and showed off the dress for all that it is.... stunning! I Ended up searching the depths of Nordstrom and by a strike of luck found THE LAST ONE, coincidentally in my size...a ted size 2, held on to it and never had an occasion to wear it :( anyways it’s brand new with the tags on if anyone wants it! It hurts my heart that it’s just been sitting in my closet, especially because you mentioned once that followers have been desperate to find it 🤣

I am local to Pittsburgh, but Incase people feel nervous about meeting a stranger or anything, I posted it on Poshmark if there is anyone interested. Here is a link! I also wouldn’t mind sharing my email if it came down to it :)
