The clementine dress: day to night.

June 3, 2012

Filed Under: Style

When Questhaven Fashions gave me the opportunity to select an item from the shop, I scoured their adorable inventory and selected the Clementine Dress. This 20s style dress stood out to me immediately! I love the soft color, the beading, and the pleated skirt.

Something else that made me want to feature this dress was to demonstrate ways to style it. I think sometimes people will see items that they really like, but aren’t sure what to wear with them, or where to wear them. I’ve styled up this gem in two different ways, one for a day off of work, and one for a weekend evening!


Wavy hair, flats, over-the-shoulder purse, minimal jewelry.

Outfit Breakdown:
Dress: c/o Questhaven Fashions (Same.)
Purse: Banana Republic (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Bracelets/Watch: Target (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Flats: Gap *in stores* (Save. Spend. Splurge.)

Curled away from the face with a 1″ curling iron, then finger combed.


Simple updo, dramatic jewelry, clutch, heels.

Outfit Breakdown:
Dress: c/o Questhaven Fashions (Same.)
Purse: Banana Republic (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Earrings: New York & Co. (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Bangles: Secondhand , Vintage , Skagen (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Bracelets: c/o INPINK (Same.) c/o Saressa Designs (Same.)
Heels: Sam Edelman (Same. Save. Spend. Splurge.)

Secured into a ponytail then wrapped into a bun and pinned into place.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for future closet additions, and for ways to wear items you already own!

    Have you been editing your photos differently in the last couple weeks or am I imagining it? I love the warm glow about them.

  14. What a great dress, and I loved both pairings of it. I was pretty much sold on its amazingness as soon as you said it was 1920’s inspired!
