Vanessa Bruno Athé

Hey babies…finding dresses that work with my long torso is super tough. Often times, the waistline hits much higher than it should making most dresses look super short on me…which would be okay but depending on the cut, it can look like I’m wearing a kid’s size. Anyway, flash forward to this dress from Vanessa Bruno’s Athé line…yes, it’s short and it could probably hit a little lower on the waist BUT I love it. It’s fun, flirty and the embroidered print is such a great mix of colors. It’s a very easy dress to enjoy and wear. Perfect for a day time lunch in Wynwood. I paired it with my little suede booties to give it a little more bohemian vibe although this dress would also look great with ballet flats for a more Parisian look. If I was going to anything like SxSW or Austin City Limits, I would probably take this little number along for the ride.

Purse:  Vintage clutch by Gucci
Shoes: Suede booties by Nine West (sold out)
Also, shout out to the wonderful team at Pascky Biany salon in SoFi for beautifying me with a great blowout and a makeup touch up.
A girl needs a team…I mean, it takes a village, right?

    Yes — I have a long torso, too, and suffer from the same issue. Your makeup looks amaze here, by the way.
