What I Wore...

Dress: Courtesy of Max Mara. Shoes: Courtesy of 'B' Brian Atwood. 
Clutch: Courtesy of Ferragamo. Diamond bracelets: Courtesy of Forevermark.

I loved the simplicity of this dress. It had such a nice fit. I had the choice of the shoes in orange and pink. I named them Carrie and Samantha... In the end I went with Samantha.

You could easily recreate this look with this simple, chic shift dress from TopShop. I have it in beige.

Dear Ashley! Although I prefer the more outrageous looks on you, this dress is really lovely. I think it's great and refreshing that you still manage to make time for your blog, even though your schedule must be crazy. You seem very nice, down to earth and I love you as an actress! Wishing you ongoing success and happiness!

I agree with Daisy Pena, I do think that it't not that sexy, yet you were able to rock the dress despite its simplicity.

You made the right choice, very elegant. Not everyone could have pulled that off but you look so radiant and beautiful.

Birgitte said...

I think it so cool that you have a blog! I recently found out! But i'm definitely going to follow you from now on! I'm actually a big fan of you, and i'm watching all the series you've been involved in! It started when I saw you in A secret diary of a call girl, as Bambi! And now I'm looking forward to episode 13 of Revenge, (it's coming up tomorrow!) I really hope that you will remain in season two of Revenge!

There are certainly some typos, but I can excuse myself because I'm from Norway and is 15 years old.

Kisses from Birgitte!
