    You look gorgeous in that dress. I love black lace. And I love that bag. I really like the leather bags from Vera Bradley. To me it looks great dressed up like you are using here but also would look great styled more casually which is my style most of the time.

    I do not have a very Bradley yet… for a while I didn’t like the ones that were around and now I am really starting to like her. Idk if her style changed or mine did! I would probably style it with my Hudson nico skinnies and a chiffon top with sparkly flats ๐Ÿ™‚ and I love the color of the bag! I think it would look so pretty with a monochrome look/color scheme or with the jeans and a peachy/nude/rose blouse.
