Keeping it Crisp

eyelet shift

White shirts aside, this is literally the only all-white piece of clothing I've got. I don't have any white skirts, shorts, any other white dresses. It's not that I don't like white - I actually think it is really sleek and crisp and adore all-white ensembles - it's just that I am an errant stain magnet and can't be relied on to keep white clean. But I couldn't resist this cute dress and so far have miraculously managed to keep all makeup smudges and paint marks from getting on it ... though I wonder how long before my luck runs out!

    1. That pleated pique dress you've got from JC has got me drooling. I want to get it but I feel like wearing super-crisp white is tempting the fates too much for me, hehe.

  7. Lovely dress. I'm a stain magnet too... but I still manage to get away with wearing lots of white during the summer.

    1. I need to be less afraid of white. White denim jeans with a chambray top is such a great look!

  9. Aaah you look so beautiful and classy! Kind of like something out of an old 1930's detective drama, hehe. Love the white dress with the brown and turquoise accessories! I guess a white dress from F21 is the ideal "training wheels dress", and then you can gradually upgrade to more expensive dresses as you get better at avoiding stains? ;) :P

  15. I love that dress, it's so crisp and summery! I'm the opposite--I have white jeans and shorts and shirts, but no white dress. I'm the same way though, my Clorox stain remover gets a workout!

  16. Your dress is beautiful, but I feel the same way...I buy white stuff, but I'm usually too afraid to wear them :)

  17. It's a pretty eyelet dress. I have a similar one and I think they look great in the Summer time.

  19. I do have a lot of white items even though I am like you. I just posted about how I got my white pants dirty on my post today. I love this dress on you and it looks great with your DIY sandals.

  21. The white lace is beautiful on you! I also always seem to spill something on myself when I'm wearing white...thank goodness for bleach :)

  22. Yeah i know what you mean about white.
    Just recently i was organising my closet and when i place all the white stuff ( i confess to having a lot of it) there were so many KINDS of white it was kind of embarrassing. I have to invest in some whitening laundry soap.

    1. I know what you mean - white seems to get dingy so fast.

  24. I wish I had more white items, but I am like you-stains seem to be attracted to me! I love this on you! The accessories and shoes are perfect!

  25. Whether you keep it crisp or colorful you always look gorgeous. I am in love with that dress from F21 which looks so expensive. I love the dark brown belt with it. Will have to keep that in mind for styling my own dress with a cognac or brown leather belt. Though last Spring I also styled my dress with a Skinny Bow Belt, except mine was in a Nude Color. As always your jewels and shoes are beautiful.

    BTW, Congratulations on your new house Lisa. I am sure you will turn it into a lovely home for you.

  26. I adore white in the summer. Every single dress I have wishlisted has been white. BUT I have not bought a single one. I finally come to my senses and remember that I have 3 kids who love to love on me...with all of their sticky little fingers. SO, what it not so practical, but oh, so beautiful. Maybe I will get one for a date or something....
    Love the necklace you paired with your lwd. You have the best accessories!

  27. I could not believe that dress is Forever 21. I assumed it was Anthropologie since it has a more sophisticated look.
    I think white is very beautiful and such a great fashion statement. However, one little splash of food or whatever and it is stained. So I stay clear of white and appreciate it on other people.
    At least you can relax knowing that your dress is F21.
    Have a great day,
    Stacey
