Where I would wear this look: The ivory lace gives you the option of wearing this dress day or night. For daytime, I would wear this to a shower (if a wedding shower, remember only the bride wears white), christening or Thanksgiving dinner. For nighttime, it is appropriate to wear when taking clients or your parents out to dinner. I would also add tights and a wrap it it is cooler out.
Items I already own and love: I have a couple of lace LBDs (little black dresses) which are great for evening events. And a Chanel bag is an absolute classic!
