Off The Shoulder Dress For Spring | The Petite Bijou

 

Aren’t off the shoulder and cold shoulder dresses oh so lovely? They are perfect for spring because of the way they move with your body. I really love this dress from Francesca’s that I got on sale a few weeks ago. It was nice enough outside to wear it once but alas, it’s freezing here again. So this beautiful dress will be seen again – hopefully very soon.

If you’re looking for a beautiful cold shoulder dress I really like this cooper & ella ‘Selin’ Cold Shoulder Popover Dress. It’s very similar to the one I am wearing. For a more budget friendly version, this one is really great but doesn’t come in the same color. However, purple is an excellent choice for a lovely spring dinner dress.

 

OFF THE SHOULDER DRESSES

But we all know that the finishing touch to any outfit are the accessories! I’ve teamed up with Bblackbox – an artisan collective that produces and sells handmade products right out of San Francisco! And if you know me, you know I have a deep connection to shopping ethically, locally, and with purpose.

Bblackbox has partnered with Living Water International and Love 146 – two amazing charities that focus on brining clean water around the world and stopping human trafficking. They donate 10% of their sales to these two charities. Knowing this really touched my heart, as I believe brining awareness to these types of causes.

I really loved this Blaine Canvas Zip Pouch for a great accessory. It’s great for casual business meetings or an easy to carry alternative to a purse. This zip pouch is also a wonderful home office item – perfect for pen and pencil storage! This also comes in navy and black.

The other fabulous accessory I am wearing is the Arizona Turquoise Necklace. This boho and natural hemp rope necklace is perfect for a laid back spring look. I love the simple but beautiful look of this accessory. Turquoise is lovely for a pop of color -especially paired with complimentary colors like orange!

  • Are you into straw purses? At first, I was not into the straw circle purse trend, but now this has become my signature accessory. I get so many question & compliments on this purse so here are my answers:
-
▪️You have to travel light because this does open on its own if you carry too much
-
▪️Withstands the rain pretty well - so I will be taking this into fall
-
▪️To add a french touch, tie a silk scarf around the handle 💕

  • QUESTION: Is Fashion Week relevant anymore? 👗🤔 Do you like seeing Fashion Week posts from bloggers?
-
The other day @jaceyduprie asked her followers a really thought provoking question about whether or not she should attend Fashion Week this year. This amazing post made me ponder my own decision on whether to go or not. A lot of bloggers are asking this question to themselves and to their readers. I'm not alone in thinking: is it even relevant anymore?

I went back to my journalism days to explore this topic in great detail and present arguments for all sides of the FW dilemma.

Speaking of patterns, I’d love to know: is there ever such a thing as too much floral? I don’t see many people wearing floral patterns anymore. Thoughts?
