Hey guys, I hope you are all having a great week! As you may know from my Instagram (@retroflame) & Snapchat (@retroflame1), I’m still in Barbados but I wanted to share with you this beautiful dress I shot last week back in New York. I actually brought it with me on this trip and wore it on the night of my birthday. I posted a picture of it the next day and lots of you seemed to love it so I’m excited to share all the details. It’s literally the perfect occasion wear dress and the best thing is, is that it’s SO affordable while still being amazing quality!  I hope you love it as much as I do…




Charlotte Russe DressI’m always on the search for dresses because quite honestly, it’s good to have a few in the ‘bank’ at all times. We all know that it’s always when you’re looking for a dress that you can’t find one, so it’s best to make the purchase when you do find one you love. When I was shopping online for my Barbados trip, I wanted a special dress for my birthday dinner and this one immediately caught my eye. It’s from a brand called Charlotte Russe which has an amazing selection of pieces but this dress really stole the show for me. How STUNNING is it? The colour, the ruffles, the quality…oh and the fact that it’s under $40. Without a doubt, my BEST dress purchase of the year. If you have an occasion coming up, trust me on this one….you need this dress! The earrings are also a gem – they literally work with so many outfits and I’ve barely taken off these rose gold sandals since they arrived.


I’ve linked some more of my favourite occasion wear pieces from the Charlotte Russe website below. They really have such a great range for all sizes and as I mentioned everything is super affordable yet amazing quality, so I can’t recommend the site enough. If you do end up purchasing anything, I have a discount code for you :) Just use the code ‘CRSTYLE’ to get 10% Off $50+ purchases between Sept 14th- 20th. Click HERE to go to the site  & happy shopping!!

Chat Soon,
