Dressing Up with Darling: Long and Lovely

Posted on January 31, 2014 by


For this Dressing Up with Darling post, we were inspired by winter layers and even a little V-day lovin’. I adore the new love-themed jewelry, just in at Darling!

“We continue our Cville Niche Dressing Up with Darling series with our lovely Ellen and a lovely long dress. This outfit is perfect for this transitional time of year! (That is, if the groundhog cooperates on Sunday…)” — From the Darling blog


“We love this dress for many reasons:

1. It’s extremely soft and comfortable, so you’re basically wearing your nightgown in public.

2. The length and color will work layered for winter–try a moto jacket!–but the weight and scoop back mean it can just as easily be worn in the summer with a pair of gladiators.

3. It just looks plain great on Ellen, and she looks great in it, and around Valentine’s day, can you really ask for much more than a perfect match?

We paired this long, lovely maxi with a jacket and some funky earrings from Darling, but the possibilities are endless!”
