So apparently this skirt has been around, in other colors, for a while now? How did I not know about this? I was very skeptical when I first saw it in the store. The material was weird and stiff (see how it stands up on its own in pic #3!) and I certainly didn't think I could squeeze into the size xs/s. But oh man, is this a magic skirt or what?! It gave me a waist! It made me look legit skinny (not the case as I've gained a few stress lbs)! Holy crap, I'm officially in love. Could not justify buying a $100+ item at the time, but this is definitely on my wish list.
I picked this one up as a possible wedding shower/engagement party dress for my brother's upcoming festivities. The closest available in my size was a 6, which fit well (but again, stress lbs and all, so it may be TTS). Going up a size also helped make it longer on me. This is a gorgeous dress. The lace design is more unique than the thousands of other lace dresses on the market. It also has a few randomly placed pink sequins, which I'm not sure I liked, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. I loved this dress, but will wait for it to hopefully go on sale soon to pick it up.
I've had this one on my wish list for a while now. I love a good floral sundress! In reality, I didn't fall in love with this dress. I didn't like the way the wider neckline looked on me, and the material was an odd mesh-like fabric. It also had a seam going down the middle of the skirt (see pic #2) which I wasn't a fan of. I still like it and could definitely see myself wearing it, but I'm not feeling like I HAVE to have it right now.
I thought this one was adorable. Such a comfortable, easy dress. I'm not exactly sure where I would wear it, as it's a bit too casual for school and a bit too dressy for lounging (I'm more of a sweatpants kind of lounger). This could definitely be a sale purchase, though.
Wearing: Size 6
So. This dress. I hemmed and hawed over it when it hit sale, as it's another contender for my brother's wedding festivities in October. The fabric is thicker and would be perfect for cooler weather, and the fit-and-flare shape works well on my body type. However, what is up with the neckline? I mean, it's definitely unique, and it's not exactly unflattering, but it's just...weird. I just couldn't make peace with it, plus the skirt didn't fall quite right (which may have been due to the security tag on the side). They only had a size 6 left, so maybe trying a size 4 would help with the skirt.
What do you all think of these items? Which do YOU love?
