There is always a certain day in the week where there is nothing more I want than to wear a dress that flirts with reality. One of those dresses that plays with the wind, intermingles between your fingers and the delicate material caresses your skin. Over the year, I’ve finally come to understand my style. Many of you, who have been here since the birth of c&é have probably seen the evolving style and color palette. It’s the simplest pieces that translate into romance. And though this may be the perfect little black dress to accompany an evening with champagne and endless rounds of sushi, it may have to be adapted for a whimsical afternoon.

  • I love what you have written. It’s so poetic. I love the notion of a dress that flirts with reality. This dress you’re wearing totally captures that feeling. =)

  • I love black chiffon! You get the floaty romance (chiffon) with a little more substance (black). And, really? It’s January and you get to wear sandals? My hands nearly froze off in the car this morning. I love Canada but sometimes it gets ridiculous! 🙂

    • Well at the moment it is cooler, but that day in particular was slightly too warm. I remember being entirely too warm during the photo session. I’m not much of a sandals girl, I prefer flats, but that day was an exception 🙂 x

    Very lovely dress. The Chanel nail polish is perfect with the black chiffon.

    I love that dress on you and it seems to beautifully flow. And an odd question for you, but are you Indian? You look like a mix.

  • Thank you for the sweet comment, Rayna 🙂 I couldn't agree more with you! x

  • My favorite part of this outfit is the delicate details – the little bows on the dress, the dainty ring, the light sandals. This look is perfect!
