Bougainvillea at The Ivy
Santa Monica, CA

I’d been driving past The Ivy at The Shore Hotel for about a month – in complete awe – before actually parking and going inside!  It’s the cutest restaurant located right along Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica.  The bougainvillea is breathtaking and was begging to be photographed!  I wore this black off the shoulder dress to a lunch meeting and got so many compliments on it.  I went a size up (I’m wearing a size 4 here) because it runs a bit small.  I’m thinking of wearing it to my girlfriend’s wedding in North Carolina next week.  It’s soooo well made and flattering.  I paired it with super simple accessories as to not take away from the dramatic pleats.  FYI it’s 40% off right now – you can scoop it up here!
