long sleeved lace dress msgm

This lace frock is hands-down one of my favorite pieces in my closet right now.  I’ve worn it to a few special occasions over the past couple of years so far–including my bridal shower.  Since my hubby and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary this week, I decided it would be special to wear this dress again. Sharing where I scored it and how I styled it a bit differently this time around.lace dress x forest-22The Outfit

This was the perfect dress for an anniversary night out  because it’s so beautifully-made—not to mention, the lace details are classic and made me feel extra fancy.

I wanted to remember how special I felt one year prior and this dress really did the trick. I scooped it up from a brand called MSGM (similar here)  which is carried at such stores as Nordstrom.

I paired the dress with black studded heels, a lace clutch, black sunnies and a top knot.

Anniversary Night Out

We went to one of our favorite LA restaurants, Crossroads for the occasion.  Phil is a major carnivore (#allmeateverything) and I’m a vegetarian but this particular vegan restaurant always has something perfect for both of us.  He loves that the vegan food doesn’t feel uber-granola and that it tastes delicious.

I always love when I can convince Phil to go there (not that it takes too much convincing anymore because it’s that good!). If you’re in Los Angeles and get a chance to go to Crossroads, definitely try the vegan crab cakes, cheese plate and oysters.
