When I first spotted this dress, I felt oddly drawn to it [considering it’s not my usual silhouette] in a must-stalk-until-on-sale kind of way. I ended up getting it during a site-wide sale (hooray for sales alerts!), but naturally, it’s even more on sale at the moment. Isn’t that always the case? It reminds me of 80s Laura Ashley in the best kind of way. I first wore it on our family cruise, because even though it’s not a very out-to-sea dress, I couldn’t wait to wear it and it arrived right before we left. But now that I think of it, I do believe Ariel would’ve worn something like this when she got her legs, and if a mermaid’s wardrobe isn’t out-to-sea-ish (or boatish, as my nephew likes to say when he sees anything remotely nautical), I don’t know what is. So there you have it: Rebecca Taylor does 80s Laura Ashley for The Little Mermaid when she gets her legs. I’d call that my look.
