Hi there!

As you probably already know about me, I love boho chic. Bohemian fashion usually has a very laid back connotation, but it doesn't always need to be. Sometimes boho looks upscale while still holding onto its hippie roots. I was recently at a wedding at the Metropolitan building in Long Island City that had a gorgeous vintage shabby chic feel.  The decor was too gorgeous to miss a photo op.

The dress I'm wearing in the photo is a recent find from my favorite store from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The store is called Farm. Unfortunately they are only in Brazil but you can shop online! I bought this dress in Recife on my recent trip to see family. I love the billowy sleeves, open back, and floral design.  They matched my new Louis Vuitton plum colored mini Alma bag and purple wedge ribbon tie espadrilles from the Gap.

The length of the dress works because it's baggier on top, so it shows off some form without being too tight all over.

I danced the night away in this look!
