I posted back in January about the dresses that didn't make the cut. None of those dresses were a similar style to what I eventually chose. Most of my inspiration dresses were all-lace, but one was a simple strapless dress with a lace bolero.

When we got to Chicago, I tried on a few different styles still, but the simple dresses were the ones I kept coming back to. When we got to Macy's, I tried on the Marisa gown that was a Vera Wang knock-off. This was the first time I got to see the complete gown + bolero look, and I was in love.

We went to another store after leaving Macy's, but I didn't like anything there. Finally, our last stop of the day was Jenny Yoo. Her fabulous dresses are all very simple with minimal embellishments. I booked an appointment there after our first shopping trip in Fort Wayne because I knew her dresses would look gorgeous with a lace bolero.
And I was right. I only tried on 2 dresses in the store before deciding to purchase the last dress, Madison.
Jasmine belt because I could pin a brooch on the closure for a little extra sparkle.
Now that I had the dress, I just needed to find the perfect bolero to go with it!
