I am a huge fan of casual floral dresses, not only LBDs. They're easy to wear and could go from day to night with the right accessories and footwear. I sometimes wish I could wear them to school everyday. However, I only have very few of such dresses and I think it is now time to fill my closet with these. This particular one from Yoyomelody that I am wearing is my current favorite! It has this cute shoulder cutout and the rose print is just lovely.

Hype this look:

I guess the only problem I had with this dress is that the chiffon material is translucent and you have to wear a half slip with it. Nonetheless, I am very satisfied with the dress. The straps are adjustable and the length is just right. This one I am wearing is a size XS and it fits me well. This dress is definitely a head turner!
