personally I think all dresses of that style, with the dress portion beginning under the chest rather than at the waist, make the woman wearing it look fat and/or pregnant. she could be thin as a toothpick but in a dress of that style she'd look like she's shopping for yet more maternity wear. just my opinion.
If you want it to look cute and casual I would wear it with a pair of red flats link . Oh! Or cowboy boots! link . And then chunky red bangles link and your choice of cardigan. Though I'd choose a light grey.
I'm going to a theater opening tonight and now I'm thinking of the perfect outfit using your dress! Thanks a lot :(
The color isn't something I'd choose for summer (depending on what occasion I'm wearing it for), but it's really cute. I'd suggest you go for a white one, and if they have a soft orange or green one would be great too. :D
I'm not sure about the what purse though. >.< Really cute dress. :)
