Once upon a time

rose print dress

Good morning!  I feel like it's been quite a while since I posted here!  It's Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette, and I'm pleased as punch to be styling Amy's gorgeous rose print dress today.  This dress made me feel as pretty as a princess, and the print paired so well with my little book clutch that it got me thinking about fairytales, and just how many of them involve roses!  Growing up, one of my favorites was the story of Snow-White and Rose-Red (not to be confused with the more popular character of Snow White).  And of course, roses are a big part of Beauty and the Beast.  Briar Rose is the basis for the story of Sleeping Beauty, and though not technically a fairytale, the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland demands that her roses be red.  This dress just seems perfectly suited for a storybook life!

Dress: swap from Amy
Book clutch: ASOS
Flower bracelet: River Island

I adore how Amy and I styled this same dress so differently.  While I opted for a fancier evening look, Amy dressed down the dress with the addition of a jean jacket and hat.  I love when seemingly limited dresses turn out to be versatile!  You can see Amy's full post here.  How would you style this beautiful dress?

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. So cute! Im a sucker for floral print! Plus that clutch is to die for. Books anything and everything.

  2. That is a beautiful dress. I love how you've styled it - as always, your accessories are beyond perfect.

  3. As always you kill it with your accessories Sammi! I love this dress and it's perfect dressed up and with the denim jacket for a more day look!

  4. I love the fairytale themes evoked by your Once Upon a Time clutch along with your River Island rose bracelet and that lovely rose print dress - maybe if Briar Rose meets the Red Queen, Sleeping Beauty might wake up in Wonderland after all. That rose print dress looks lovely against the backdrop of green foliage.
