DIY Fuchsia + Gray Bow Neck Dress

Quickie post today: I'm still obsessed with color blocking though this one is much more mild - incorporating fuchsia with a medium gray.

Dress:  Fuchsia + Gray DIY Bow Neck Dress
Belt:  J. Crew Factory Metallic Webbing Belt
Shoes:  Talbots Flower Bouquet Ballet Flats, Gray Flint
Sunnies:  Michael Kors
Bag:  Balenciaga Twiggy, Anthracite

A closer view

I used this tutorial to make the dress (2 rectangles of 25 x 33") and then just added a gray border and sash.  What do you think?  I love the giant bow :)

  1. You look simply beautiful! The bow really makes the dress; it complements your belly perfectly.

    P.S - I really like your bag - why don't you whip out the Balenciaga more often?

  2. Oh, yes, love the bow! I also like the border at the bottom of the skirt. The darker grey of the bag is a great touch as well.
