New dress – c/o Love, purse – Lulu Townsend, heels – Aldo, necklace – Amazon

The heat wave passing through the Bay is so, so nice. It reached 95 degrees yesterday. I know a lot of people hate it, but I get cold very easily. So warm weather is my favorite weather ever. Plus it reminds me of Hawaii 🙂

I received this lovely aquamarine dress from In Love with Fashion. It’s a pretty, lightweight dress, and great for warm weather. The material is very, very thin though, so you need to wear a slip, and the back isn’t quite backless, but it does require a backless bra. I have invested in the Invisible Uplift bra by Victoria’s Secret, and I say “invested” because at about $70 and only 25 wears, it is pretty pricey. I don’t know what else I can wear with a backless/dress top otherwise, do you?

Now time for another giveaway! This one is sponsored by Minted Republic, and if you win, you can either opt for $25 store credit (which just about pays for the top I wore here) or 1 of these 3 fabulous dresses:

Please note that the first 4 steps are mandatory! Thanks!

Good luck! 🙂

    Your dress is beautiful! (I probably use the word beautiful too often when commenting on your blog. I need to think of a more creative adjective)I can't imagine how many people were staring at you while you were doing the shoot. xx

    Awww beautiful dress. I love the detail of that belt actually, and how it's doubled up.And I really don't have any advice about bras because I never owned a backless anything, lol. Not brave enough! But thanks for the tip about the VS one.. it is expensive but very cool that it works! I'll keep that in mind for whenever I decide to (wo)man up lol Do they not sell similar affordable ones? 🙁 And I totally joined your giveaway, I super want that tank top lol!Name: Josie Leeemail: 8bitgrayscale@gmail.com♥♥ Josie :: 8bitgrayscale

    It was quite warm here in SF yesterday but its back to being cold and foggy. I like the heat much better. Hmm that is quite pricey maybe you should look into Frederick's of Hollywood they have something similar I believe. I know they have skin tones pasties that stick on all the same too those work well. -Ash

    I love your dress especially the color and the back! Personally i invested in the same VS bra, but you can get a backless sticky bra for 16-25 dollars at Walmart or Target in the lingerie section- saved my bank account. They are washable and have lasted me more than 25 times, i usually buy one every month! Anywho, loving your blog, so i shall be your newest follower! And just entered your contest as well, i ADORE the first dress. Hope i win, xoNatalie Conkelnatalieconkel@gmail.comhttp://www.jesuisnataliec.blogspot.com
