The dress went back and I even wrote it a review that wasn’t so positive. But I still liked the dress (on other people) and I wondered about it now and again. When I purchased the dress I was the weight I am right now, but I had just reached that weight. I think my body was still changing and settling itself, if that makes sense. Clothes purchased during that time fit me differently now even though I weigh the same.
Anyway, it went from $149 to $50 and I had to try it again. I ordered it in XS & S in both colorways so I could check it out one more time. This is the type of dress my husband hates. Sacklike.
Which translates to comfortable to me. I never need to be sexy, except on date nights. And even then, I am usually a bumbling fool. Who needs sweats when you can toss on an even more comfortable dress and dash out the door? It even has pockets!
I liked the XS, but it was too tight in the arms. The small looked how I wanted it to with enough flow in the arms to allow the dress to make sense.
This look is not for everyone. As in, not everyone is going to like this. I often get responses that I wear my clothes too big. And so this is another example of this. It is just what I like.
I sent back both navy and cream in XS and kept both of the smalls.
And also I apologize in advance for my dog, who has no shame.
The navy is my favorite, but I LOVE the pink stripes on the cream. It is just so bright and cheerful. The way Mary paired it with Simply Livly’s turquoise necklace is genius. I copied that here.
The navy reads almost black. Sorry about the photo bomber! Or the angle of the photo bomber, rather. How embarrassing! Poor guy. If he only knew.
Do you have any clothes that are comfy and big? Isn’t that the best ?
