Sunday Best: v. 15: Dress it Up

I wrote about my new Genius Dress from White House Black Market twice now and you finally get to see it in action! This occasion was actually the third time I've worn this dress in the time frame of about two months and I've worn it differently each time. I plan on putting together a post in the near-ish future to demonstrate the various ways to wear it because WHBM only shows four different styles on the website.

This particular styling of this dress was from last weekend when I wore it to my brother's wedding rehearsal and dinner. It was getting a little chilly out and it was raining so I didn't want to wear it in my typical go-to sleeveless or one-shouldered styles. I simply pulled back the two wide straps and secured them in the back with one of the clasps provided with the dress (see below). This gave me a simple cap-sleeved look that I dressed up with a statement necklace and heels.

I felt comfortable and classy all evening and I still swoon over the color! I'm looking forward to seeing how I come up with ways to transition it into fall. If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear in the comments!

Last week, Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey had the most clicked-on ensemble, which I would absolutely wear in a heartbeat! Go send her some love:
