Today, I am reviewing the Lacey Cocktail Dress in Bluebird by Kiyonna.  The Kiyonna Lacey Cocktail Dress is a sophisticated vintage inspired classic, a gorgeous A-line dress made of floral lace with a classic Sabrina style neckline, 3/4 lace sleeves and flared skirt.  The Lacey Cocktail Dress is perfection!  I love how the dress fits, hugging my curves and flaring out at the waist into a swingy skirt.  This dress just screams 1960's cocktail party to me, perfect for evening entertaining or a day out on the town, it is versatile and beautiful. 

The Lacey Cocktail Dress is a gorgeous shade of blue that reminds me of bright skies and sunny days.  Blue is a color that I do not often look at when choosing clothing but this lovely dress has made me realize I need to add more of this shade to my wardrobe.   The lace is a lovely floral pattern that is both feminine and sophisticated.  I love my Lacey Cocktail Dress, I feel timeless and ethereal when I wear it.

The Lacey Cocktail Dress fits like a dream!  The stretch lace and poly spandex lining have a great amount of give so the dress fits and flatters without being tight.  I am wearing a size 2x here and it is just right, fitted on top and generous enough to swing out on the bottom.  I wear a size 14/16 on average in tops and a 24 in bottoms so in order to get the A-line silhouette to fit my body type correctly I go with the size that will fit my bottom half best, otherwise it clings in all the wrong places.  The neckline is pretty and modest which makes this a fabulous frock for family occasions or church, anything where you desire a bit more coverage but the sheer lace detail keeps it modest without being prudish.  The sleeves are 3/4 length, hitting me just below the elbow and giving nice coverage of the upper arm.  The Lacey Cocktail Dress fits and flares in a way that highlights curves without being clingy and I just love the way the sheer lace areas look against my skin.

I had fun styling my Lacey Cocktail Dress!  I love the versatility of a lace dress, it is a blank canvas just waiting for you to add accessories and really show off your personal style.  I styled it simply with sophistication by adding pearl earrings and black kitten heels but I also love a bit of whimsy and dressing things up a fanciful fashion, so I also added a matching flower crown and a cute cupcake clutch. I looked amazing and felt comfortable all day long.  The Kiyonna Lacey Cocktail Dress is a classic, a must have style that will add versatile, vintage flair to your wardrobe!
A classic dress that is versatile and fun to style!
