A back is an under-appreciated thing. Summer is the perfect time to show one off, especially in a sexy sheer fabric.
I like how she styles this vintage-inspired dress with a playful ponytail, but I could also envision it going from summer wedding to cocktail party to dinner event. Throw on a fitted blazer and a pair of dark hose during the colder months and it could also go to work with you.
Versatility in a dress is wonderful. It sort of makes it ok to go shopping, even during a wee recession. No?
