Romantic Dress + MFW Days 3 & 4

I just love the mere idea of romantic dressing...with wispy fabrics & charming details! Ah, it's a lovely thing to know you can look romantic modestly - in fact, I think if you want to look romantically, you have to do so with a dose of modesty. Cause, darling, all romance is stripped away when everything's already revealed & no mystery is left unsolved! Sorry, that was your big sis beginning to rant, but I'll stop now to talk about romantic fashion!
