Tulip Dress Lookbook









My favorite dress of this season is my Zara Tulip Dress.  Fitted on top with a structured poufy skirt, it’s elegant, fun and chic.  I paired this beautiful dress with my own jewelry, jumbo Chanel bag and Pour La Victoire suede pumps.  I wore this outfit for a press tour I did with JB Styles for the launch of her Lux Shopping Tours.  Jen Burton had the brilliant idea of offering luxurious shopping tours with a personal car and stylist when visitors come to Chicago.  Personalized to your style, it is a great way to get fashion advice and visit all the best shops catered to your needs.  Check it out if you are in Chicago!

I recently saw a picture of Olivia Palermo wearing the same dress in a floral print.  I wish I had seen the floral version because I would of purchased it too.  Love the bag and the shoes!

If you love my look and aren’t near a Zara (which does not offer online shopping), this Shoshana Tulip Dress has a similar shape however strapless and comes in the print or a solid version.  Also loving the Asos Ponti Fit and Flare Dress, at a great price, comes in 5 colors, and has short sleeves if you like to cover your arms.  This other Asos Tulip Dress version has a pleated waist that would also give you the same look.  For a fantastic similar shoe, Steve Madden has a great selection; check out this Sarrina Pump in the same suede color or the Mercy Platform Pump which has a slightly lighter suede color with a thinner heel.  My Pour La Victoire Irina Pumps are some of my favorites, I have three pairs!  So if you have the budget and want a killer comfortable heel, I would definitely recommend them.  

By the way, if you are near a Zara store, my dress appears to be on sale.  Let me know what you think about my look!

    Hi, you look fabulous. I've seen that dress at Zara, unfortunately with my build I would like like a man in drag with this dress on 🙁 I loved how you paired it with the jumbo Chanel (drool…) and you look like you're ready to rock the town. Thanks for the post 🙂

    You look so beautiful Jen. I saw a similar dress when I was in Zara and I wanted it badly but they didn't have it in my size. I love how you accessorize it with silver necklace. P/S: You remind me of Lucy Liu and Michelle Yeoh! Pretty!xoxoLove, Fashionandnumber

    Hi Jen!! I've been reading your blog for a while now, but I think this is the first time I've commented. I'm not sure why I haven't before this. :)I love your style. It's so chic and effortless. This dress is all kinds of amazing. The brilliant color is amazing on you! I remember when I first saw it on the Zara site. I wanted it so bad, but of course there are no Zara stores in Hawaii, so I was out of look. Now, I just adore it from afar. LOL.Miss Palermo looks gorg in her floral rendition of the dress. Makes me love it even more.Well, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!xx Love & Aloha

    You look fabulous! Unfortunately the tulip shape does NOT suit me at all, it makes my legs look stubbier! I love this whole look on you and your hair is amazing!
