Every Rose Has a Thorn

The pattern on this dress is truly unique; the bold orange and pink roses against the black and white background really make the flowers pop. But... it might be just a tad too short for work.

Dress: French Connection Midnight Rose Short-Sleeved Dress

The dress is still available at Amazon Fashion, 6pm and eBay. The dress runs small, so size up. (I'm normally a size 4, but I'm usually a size 6 in French Connection if the dress is at all fitted.)

I feel like French Connection makes about five dresses, but sells them in so many different patterns that you feel like you're buying a whole new dress. I think I have this same style in at least three different prints. Fortunately, French Connection is usually pretty cheap; I bought this dress for about $20 at Belk.

Pumps: BCBGMAXAZRIA Women's Nate Platform Pumps

These pumps are about eight years old - I purchased them in 2008! - but I love them. They are very comfortable for heels, and I always get so many compliments on them.
