Early April is always an odd time of year here on the east coast. It either feels like Spring right off the bat or feels like we’re stuck in the dregs of Winter’s remains (this year I’m feeling the latter). One of my best friends from college recently got engaged and held her engagement party this past weekend. When it came time to pick out a dress, these dreary temps pushed me to look for something other than a typical cocktail dress. I wanted length both on the legs and the arms to combat the chill, but didn’t want to show up sporting a gown. When I found Show Me Your Mumu’s Juliet Maxi Dress, it was love at first sight – and when I found the Roseio & Juliet print, it was pure fate.
Having invested in my fair share of pieces from SMYM, I knew I needed to give myself a little extra time to get the dress hemmed. Most pants and dresses by SMYM are made for a solid 4.5-5″ heel at 5’6, which, let’s be honest, wasn’t happening. I chose to pair the dress with Steve Madden’s Emalena block heel, which was perfect.
