I have always admired Ted Baker’s line. It is well made, beautiful and classic. But I’ve held back purchasing because it is hard to justify spending a certain amount of money on clothes. However, I came into some fun money and thought the perfect thing to do with it was to get something I’ve wanted for awhile. Since this this money was unplanned and this dress was on sale I convinced myself it was okay to buy. Now I may be addicted to his line.
I wore this dress to a fancy celebration dinner for my four year anniversary. We went to Flor de Sal, a restaurant near Casa Loma which we stumbled upon a few Halloweens ago. When we went the first time we were definitely dressed inappropriately; now it is a place we go on special occasions.
What I love about this dress is the attention to details. Aside from the pretty grey and floral motif – the scalloped hem and sleeves give extra special details. There is also a copper exposed zipper on the back. And wait – it has pockets! The dress also has stretch and is big circle skirt you can actually eat in. The bright pink purse is also Ted Baker and I scored it at Nordstrom’s The Rack. I saw it and it screamed me; luckily I’ve been a pro at spotting sales lately.
The heels have ankle straps that make them less typical. I also did my best to curl my hair for the occasion, but sadly it was almost flat when we got to the restaurant due to the wind.
