A white dress. A floral dress. A dress designed by Lela Rose. These are all things that I love! This beautiful and über flattering floral white dress is from Lela Rose’s new Pearl by Lela Rose collection, her more affordable everyday collection. Don’t get me wrong, the line isn’t super budget friendly but it is much more affordable than her signature line.
Lela Rose launched her Pearl by Lela Rose collection last year, she came to Charleston and hosted a beautiful garden party dinner to celebrate! It was such a joy to meet Lela and to chat with her throughout the night (she was a Kappa at Boulder like me!) that I couldn’t resist picking up a piece from her spring collection. I’ve been waiting months to wear this dress from that special night and I’m so happy spring is here so I can wear it out and about town! In case you can’t tell, Pearl, is my newest destination for where to shop for special occasion dresses!
Where to Shop for Special Occasion Dresses
I think part of it has to do with how much I previously adored Lela Rose’s designs, part of it has to do with how wonderful it was to spend an evening with her, and part of it has to do with the designs, silhouettes, and prints of her collection so far but, I have to say, Pearl is already one of my favorite brands to shop for special occasions! I wish this line existed when I was engaged because I absolutely would have shopped it for all my events leading up to my wedding! Everything Lela touches and designs is stunning so I feel that her Peal line has something very special about it.
Keeping in line with my white floral dress, I rounded up some other similar dresses for you with a range of price points. With so many spring events around the corner and events sure to be on your calendar including Easter, Mother’s Day, bridal showers, baby showers, and graduations, there’s no better time than now to scoop up a new floral dress!
You wouldn’t believe the number of DMs I received when I wore these pearl detailed sandals on our weekend trip to Palmetto Bluff!
I don’t blame y’all, they are adorable! I got them during the recent Shopbop sale and am so happy I did because I already know they will be my shoes of the spring and summer. They go with everything! I can’t recommend this purse enough either – such a fun shape and it’s little but fits my keys, wallet, sunglass case, and phone!
