Real vs. Steal – Issa Lace Dress

by Juliana on August 18, 2012

I am such a huge fan of this dress by Issa! All things lace are big this season and put that together with an especially flattering cut like this and you might have the perfect cocktail dress. However, the bright blue cobalt completely steals the show though, making this dress a real standout in a sea of black. You can be sure people will remember this one, and for a special occasion, that is exactly what you want! Perhaps you are looking for your rehearsal dinner dress or something to wear to a very important date. But, if you need a dress you can wear over and over, or would rather not spend a fortune on just one dress, we found some options for you below.

Rare Lace Sweetheart Tutu Skater Dress

This gorgeous version by Rare has the most beautifully cut back I’ve seen in a while. But which color to choose? The black is a great addition to your wardrobe, not only does it fit in the “little black dress” category, but you can also accessorize it a million different ways. Wear it with a pink sash around the waist or add some bright heels or earrings. The red is definitely a more memorable one, yet it is such a classic color that it works beautifully with pearls as it would with modern sculptural platforms in black or nude. Just consider what color looks best on you, how much black is already in your wardrobe, and how often you’ll be wearing it to make your decision. But the price is incredible; so you don’t have to decide… if you really love them, just get both! I’m seriously considering it.
