b&w classic

Dress: Olive @ Mikarose, Shoes: Ninewest, Sunnies: Ghia @ Banana Republic


Many of today's dresses show a lot more skin, everywhere, and that's not my style.  I sometimes wonder what happened to the classic modest, elegant dresses that were once around.  You know the ones that were similar to the 1950's style: hourglass in shape, fitted body with small shoulder, small waistline, full skirt and high heels.  Mikarose is perfect if you are looking for a modest and stylish dresses.  I won a gift card to Mikarose earlier this year and have fallen in love with this classic dress.  The good news for you is that it is on sale right now (all sizes available). PS - it has pockets!  How awesome is that!

I'm a modest girl that's for sure...

  10. While I never consider myself a "modest dresser", my style of dress usually means that I dress classy, ya know? Therefore, of course I love that dress. It creates a beautiful shape and pockets are always a bonus :)
