All About the Back


Dress, Blu Heaven. Boots, Blowfish. Jade charms, Phai’s House of Jade. Arrowhead pendant, thrifted. Clutch, Carlos Santana. Jacket (below), Dex.

The front of this dress is cute enough, but it’s the back that I love.


A jacket because open-back dresses are cold.

I bought a very similar dress at TJ MAxx a few days ago. In fact, I will have to double check the name and see if it isn't the very same one. Anyhoo I was hoping it would serve as my lbd this summer. Have you transitioned it into evening-wear yet? pAny tips on accessorizing for a night out?

DorchestersDaughter - this dress is also a recent TJ Maxx purchase, so it may be the same! I actually wore it for a casual evening out here. I wouldn't wear it for anything fancier because the fabric is pretty casual (thin and clingy).

The dress is amazing.
Cute boots too!

Great dress, what a surprising back detail! S.

It's a pity the material is thin because you'll have to cover the pretty details at the back which is the highlight of this dress. Nevertheless, you've achieved a rugged yet feminine look. I like!

I too just bought this dress from TJ Maxx. I am in love with it, though I love it even more now that I own something that you do!

Okay, even though I'm the only one who did NOT recently buy this dress from TJ Maxx, I still like it a lot. The back IS very charming...and your jacket/boot combo make the whole thing "casual-chic". You consistently find ways to make "seemingly" unrelated items WORK together and look FABULOUS. Bravo, Kasmira!

I just tried this dress on at Marshalls but it didn't fit well. :( Very cute on you!

You look great! I am loving the back the most. Would it be too much trouble to ask what kind/style of dress it is?

The dress brand is Blu Heaven and I found it at TJ Maxx.
