A Party Dress without a Party

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

I fell in love with this dress many months ago.  I was so sad when it was sold out at Nordstrom, but when I set my mind to finding something I tend to find it (even if it takes me 6 months).  I searched Amazon, Dillards, Poshmark and finally found it on Ebay for over 65% off the retail value.  This made me a little hesitant but my desire to own this dress won out and I bid on it and won! I have worn it only a few times because I couldn't find a pair of shoes that I liked, in my mind I was thinking something bright and pink. Working next to DSW pays off, especially when you can hit the clearance rack once a week to scoop up the best sale.  I scored these Barbie approved shoes for almost 75% off retail price, which I couldn't pass up!!  Now if only I had a party or some place to actually wear this super cute dress besides the office!

I am also linking up with Sarah from Tucker up for the Lovely Lookbook this month.  I am 5' 7" and this dress is a size 8P I can wear anywhere from a 4-8 it just depends on the cut (I even try on petits).  I bought it a little big (because I couldn't find a 6) and I am happy I did because the petit made it fit a little better on me.  I tend to gravitate towards a fit and flare style dress as it gives me the illusion of a smaller waist while hiding my hips and thighs.  I feel like I have thick thighs so I try to accentuate other parts of my body that I really like and this dress with bright pops of color draws the eye to other places.  I feel like this style dress is good for all body types as it's not restricting, I think that is the thing I hate most about clothing is it feeling tight.  When I feel restricted I instantly don't feel confident, if you're not comfy how can you look confident?

Happy Tuesday, I hope everyone has a great short week!
