Nella Bird Party Front Button Fit and Flare Summer Dress, Alice and Olivia, ShopBop, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales

Summer is here and it’s time to have fun and get flirty! Forget those palm leaves and pineapple prints everyone else is wearing. Go for something different. This stunning summer dress is a tropical bird party in full swing. Vibrant, colorful blooms all over and a playful, tropical bird motif give it endless whimsical charm.

It has a fit and softly flared silhouette that is flattering for all body types. I’m 4’11” and the bottom of the dress falls  just above my knees. On a taller frame, the sweet and short design should fit like a mini dress, which is perfect for hot summer days or nights.

Why else do I love this dress? It’s all about the details. It has a sweetheart neckline which screams classic femininity. It is also petite-friendly with its adjustable spaghetti straps, which ensure a perfect fit without slipping off the shoulders, especially on shorter torsos like mine. In addition, there is a white button placket detail in the front, which brings an extra element of design. Lastly, there is a back zipper for easy on and off and for providing a tight, slimming fit around the bodice.

This dress is very unique and sure to catch everyone’s eyes, yet has a timeless design that will never go out of style.  As opposed to the hugely ruffled, off-the-shoulder dresses which are very trendy right now, but will be out of style in a couple of years, you can bet that you can wear this dress summer after summer.  It’s an investment piece that you can add to your summer capsule wardrobe, along with your cute little white dress (LWD).

Other design specs: it has a seamed waistline, it is lined along the inside, and it is made of a lightweight stretch cotton blend weave (98% cotton, 2% elastane). It runs 31 inches to 34 inches in length, depending upon the size.

 

The dress can be found at Alice and Olivia, Nordstrom, Saks, and ShopBop.

However, it’s available at Bloomingdales where loyalists (so easy to sign up) receive a $25 gift card for every $100 spent.

I’ve received so many compliments on the adorable La Dolce Vita straw tote from Kayu Design. Straw totes are a necessary accessory for summer. Who wants to carry a leather handbag in the heat and humidity?

 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Hi Janet,

    I Googled this dress and found your lovely photo and blog. I just bought it myself and wanted to see how others paired it with accessories and shoes. I’m Asian also but 5’5″ so it fits like a mini dress on me. It looks amazing on you with the blue earrings, and I love how you paired it with the Gucci sandals and fun straw bag! I just wore mine today, although I didn’t have the stylish accessories, but I love the cut, pattern, and material! It’s such a fun and feminine dress; made me happy all day. Thanks for sharing this and your comments, which were well written and helpful. I will keep checking your blogs.

    Best,
    Amy
