Before heading to a wedding last weekend I spent some time on Pinterest browsing (as one does) for inspiration on what to wear that night. I stumbled upon one of those usually annoying "Suggested Pins" and was blown away! I can't remember what it looked like, nor did I favorite or repin in, but instantly I had my inspiration: gypsy chic. Immediately I was in my closet searching for something, anything, that would do! In comes this sheer dress. Purchased at the LSU Textile Museum's Closet Sale a few years ago, it came with a coordinating skirt (last seen here). I have worn it as a dress only once before and I remember belting it then. Because I like to leave room for cake, I decided against a belt in favor of a free tulip shape. 

Truth be told, this is a new silhouette for me. I have always gone with a waist-defining look or something so free-flowing that I could hide a (food) baby underneath. Something more columnar and, dare I say it, shapeless, is out of my comfort zone. However, I did get a comment on how French I looked, so I will obviously be wearing this dress 24/7. Even to the gym.
