I’ll admit, I am not the biggest fan of maroon, wine, sangria (whatever you want to define it) because I always thought it looked awful on me. That was until I started stepping out of my comfort zone with colors and outfits I never would have tried on otherwise.
Sangria is the must have color for fall 2014, and when I recently went shopping, I stumbled upon this gorgeous dress with gold accents and fell in love immediately. I really didn’t NEED another dress, but isn’t that how all most of us girls feel about the majority of our shopping experiences? I am so glad I bought it because I ended up getting invited to a wedding shortly after my purchase, and of course I wore this dress!
- Sangria dress with gold accents bought from Nordstrom Rack–$25
- Tan Mossimo strappy wedges originally from Target (for $35), bought from Goodwill–$5
- Gold chained black purse bought from a garage sale-$3
I love this dress so much because it is lightweight, doesn’t wrinkle (especially when packed in a suitcase), and is super comfortable. Plus I don’t think I will ever forget about this dress since I wore it to my first wedding (ever) this past weekend when I went to visit my friend Jack in Texas! Had such a great time, and it even went well with the wedding theme colors (red and turquoise).
