I figured I’ll do a fun post regarding the housewives show. While taking pictures of this beautiful dress, my photographer expressed how I kinda look like one of the real housewives and babes was she right?! If you aren’t familiar with the real housewives, it’s a Bravo “reality” show series featuring alluring housewives from all over the country. They live extravagant lives all while looking glamorous. It’s seriously my secret addiction! I can binge watch it anytime 🙂
If I had to pick one of the housewives to be, it will probably be Melissa from the The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Not only do we have the same name 🙂 but her style is always on point! She always dresses fabulous and it shows how confident she is with her style. Melissa also owns her boutique like myself, which makes her relatable to a girl like me. On this last season, I was able to see a different side of her, a business women. I saw her struggles when it comes to being a boutique owner. What do you do to stand out? What should you create to make sure your customers feels their best when shopping at your store? You want your boutique to describe your fashion sense to represent who you are, yet you have to figure out is this what you’re ideal customer will shop for? Because let’s be real if it was up to me, my store will be filled with bright colors and a ton of white 😉 Being able to see myself in her shoes, made me like her even more!
This dress ties my personality and style all together! I can see Melissa rocking an outfit like this. I love the flow and vibrant colors on this piece!! A stunning summer dress for sure. The material of this dress is so light and cool, perfect for those summer nights. If the v-neck cut is too much for you, you can always style it with a bralette underneath. I styled this dress with gold accessories, a straw bag and some red fringe heels. I love how the heels makes this whole look pop.
Which real housewife are you?
If I was auditioning for Bravo’s next Real Housewives of Upstate NY, this would be my outfit! Fancy and all, walking towards the camera like I’m all that and a bag of chips. My life is no where near extravagant, but I can fake it with a dress like this!! Have a lovely weekend,

I don’t watch TV a lot and in Europe programs are different so I don’t know that one but your dress is superb! Happy weekend xx
You look gorgeous! In the first picture I pictured you lounging by the pool being fanned, LOL. Living a glamorous life. I don’t watch the show, but absolutely loved the way you described the one woman which made me think how stereotypes have shaped my own opinion of the show and I appreciate hearing a different perspective. I also learned that you own a boutique which I have missed somehow, but no wonder you always look 100% put together. Great post.
I have never watched an episode of any real housewives, however I was out to dinner with a bunch of ladies last night and there was an altercation with another table and it was suggested we have our own housewives show, LOL! I love this dress on you, it reminds me of your Jlo dress. So gorgeous and styled to perfection!
such a pretty outfit for summer! maxi dresses are so perfect~
You look amazing! That maxi dress is so pretty for summer and the red shoes are a fun match and make it really unique!
I haven’t watched any of the Housewives shows in years so I am not familiar with any of them anymore! In any event, you look gorgeous in this dress and those shoes are freaking fantastic!
