dress: kora rae | shoes: valentino | earrings: calypso st. barth | watch: michele 

I am so thankful the Kora Rae team reached out to me and introduced me to such a wonderful brand. Although I had never heard of the designer before, Kora Rae will definitely be one of my go to places to shop for original, contemporary clothing. This brand is only a few years old, and I admire the fact that a percentage of proceeds go to the National Tiger Sanctuary... how cool! The designer, Rachel Turzer, says she hopes the woman wearing her designs will embody the characteristics of a tiger- power and beauty. So many of Rachel Turzer's designs caught my eye, but I chose this this dress because I loved the contrasting silk panel as well as the many ways it can be worn. Sometimes shift dresses can be too wide or unflattering due to the lack of shape, but this one has just the perfect amount of shape! The fabric is also super comfortable and very durable for such a pretty dress.
