Just out the front door OF The Ritz Carlton, South Beach there is a small boutique packed with pieces ranging in style from South Beach sexy to preppy Northeast. You just don’t know what you’ll find from rack to rack. I found and fell in love with this backless beauty by Karma. Although I had no special occasion on the calendar, I just knew I needed to have this go to dress. It just has so much going for it. Of particular note is the crinkly polyester fabric. It is a traveler’s dream. The neutral color is rich and gives an added touch of elegance, which when coupled with the delicate lace bodice and backless features, you have a dress that is so versatile and so special. The dress gives a slight nod to the high/low hem trend, but not so much so that it will be out of date when the trend is. The high is ever so slight so that the shoes peek from the hem line in front and the back has the slightest puddle of fabric, just brilliant. The shoe I favored with this dress is a simple nude patent leather wedge with peep toe by Steve Madden. The Wicker clutch with brass seashell detail was found in a floral shop at the Jersey Shore. I wore a pair of gold, ivory and crystal chandelier earrings and a gold upper arm bracelet tattoo. My hair was done in a side fishtail so that the bodice and back of the dress could fully be appreciated. To say I love this dress is an understatement. It is so comfortable and you can’t help but feel good in it. This will definitely be in my suitcase when I pack for Cabo later this summer!
