Summer White- Braving the Trend of All White

I know some of you just cringed at the thought of wearing all white, I did too. But due to a Sold out option on Gilt Group, I was forced to purchase the 'Marissa Long Dress' Torn by Ronny white! (I originally wanted the black, equally as lovely)
When I got the package, I was nervous to open it, let alone try it on. But when I felt the material, I started to think I could pull it off. The fabric was much heavier than I had anticipated and had a rather interesting texture to it, both allowing it to hang better on a figure than say regular cotton.
When I tried it on, it literally fit like a glove. Not like a glove too small, though. 
I decided to debut the dress at the 2013 Step Up Women's Network Inspiration Awards,  a daytime celebrity studded event with corporate sponsors including the likes of Julie Bowen and Trina Turk as well as sponsors from CAA, CitiBank and Dogeared Jewelry. What I also decided was to play it safe and wear nude Spanx underneath because you never know what the cameras will do when celebs are involved and how an all white dress will show.
Luckily, the Spanx were not necessary but an added bonus at best. I paired the dress with simple black strappy 'Lorient Sandals' from JustFab and white and gold jewelery from Dogeared and Gorjana & Griffin.
Later on in the day, I needed to run errands. So naturally, I converted from strappy sandals to wedge flip flops, still wearing the dress, and instantly transformed my look from fancy red carpet brunch to sample pulling bohemian beauty.
So to reiterate, white can absolutely make anyone cringe at the though of piling it on with no other safety color to mask who knows what, but I am satisfied that I took the plunge and will definitely again this Summer.
