The wind has been blowing here in New York this summer… and unfortunately it’s mostly been a hot wind! My hair is absolutely crazy. I’ve even taken to pinning it up on hot days, which you know almost never happens. I never used to go out with my hair up.
This peach eyelet peplum dress is from Forever 21 (last spring?) and one of my very favorite warm weather pieces. I love the color, which I think makes the eyelet a little less sweet. This particular piece is very well made. Even the fabric is decent quality.

Unfortunately I can’t say the same for my sandals. I got them at Nordstrom Rack and only wore them about 8-10 times before the straps began to separate from the soles. Not exactly what I’m looking for when New York is such a walking city.
Oh well. Back to the drawing board for a good shoe. So far my top recommendations are Seychelles, Lanvin and Stuart Weitzman.
Only problem is the price. Sad face.

That dress looks more expensive than a F21 piece – I like the flare and flippy skirt!
I sure is loving this one so much. you go girl:)
Alex, I love the peach eyelet!
The cinched belt really adds too. I hear you about the shoes when we live in NY..They take alot of punishment. Maybe try 6PM, I have gotten good shoes there..
Love this post!

That dress looks faaaaab! You look gorgeous sister!
I hope you find some good shoes! I hate it when a gorgeous pair just doesn’t cut it, you know? I LOVE the dress, Alex. The shade is gorgeous on you!

Love the eyelet dress
We haven’t had rain, but the humidity just keeps my hair in a constant fuzz ball.

ok. so what’s up with the shoe fails these days?! i pulled out a pair of faux snakeskin wedges today and wore them to a meeting. got home and the strap gave out on me. they are quite old, but i rarely ever wear them.
never in a million years would i have guessed your dress came from F21. i really like the color…looks great on you!
Alexandra Shook says
F21 really did a good job with this one :)
I don’t know, but it seems like everyone’s shoes are falling apart left and right… not cool!
I am having the same problem with a pair of my sandals, very frustrating and disappointing!
Loving this dress, adorable color and cut!
This dress is simpley perfect for you – the cut, the colour, everything!
Have a great day,
