Rainbow Fish

So let’s talk about this dress. A few weeks ago I was casually stalking blonde beauty Courtney Kerr, when I stumbled upon an Instagram photo that sent me into an investigative frenzy. Although I don’t usually buy items I see on the social media accounts of celebrities, I needed the dress Courtney was wearing and I needed it now. Anyway, after Detective TK&PD did a little digging, the maxi was tracked down at an adorable boutique in Texas. I swear if there was such a thing as a PI for clothing & accessories, I would be a millionaire. Turns out, they had ONE left, it was a size small, and the rest is history.

When it came to styling this magical maxi, I kept accessories simple since the dress itself has so much going on. My go-to gold jewelry, a black studded bag, and strappy black wedges. For a little pop of color to go along with the dress, I went with a bright coral/peach from Essie’s neon collection called ‘Serial Shopper’ — how appropriate!















Maxi: C. Luce from Jul’s Boutique (currently sold out) | Wedges: Piperlime (similar here) | Cuff: CUSP by Neiman Marcus | Stone Bracelet: J. Crew (similar here) | Chain Bracelet: J. Crew Factory | Rings: Forever 21 | Bag: Alexander Wang from eBay | Nails: Essie (Serial Shopper)

I had been dying to wear my dress for weeks, but I knew this outfit couldn’t be wasted on just any occasion. Finally, I received an invitation to an EventHaus event at the SC Aquarium, and I knew it was time. It was dressy, but not too dressy, the colors would stand out wonderfully inside the venue, and *hopefully* no one else would wear the same thing — unless Courtney Kerr decided to show up. It ended up being the perfect piece to wear that night, and has inspired me to find numerous other gems on Instagram.

  1. OH MY GOSSHHHH I almost bought this dress in New York last month! I was in a random boutique and fell in love with it! I had to resist because I spent wayyy too much money shopping, but it looks amazing on you. Isn’t it the best feeling when you track something down your obsessed with? It feels like the biggest accomplishment 😉

  3. I have this same dress and am wearing it to prom next weekend! I’m wondering if you have as much of a problem with the zipper as I do, and if you have any tips for this tricky zipper?

  4. This dress is originally by Mara Hoffman and it’s called the colors of the moment maxi dress. You should look it up on google images. The back of the dress is by far the best part of this dress and it’s a shame your dress doesn’t have the details and cut out back. 😭
