I am SUCH a typical fashion blogger! I see something on a blog that I love, and I stalk the Internets until I find it, or something similar! And, that is exactly what happened with this dress. Lol! A couple months ago, I pinned the look below from SimpyCyn, and the hunt began.
She got her dress from H&M, so I knew it was pretty much pointless to go looking for it there. By the time H&M stuff hits the blogs, the chances of finding it in store are slim to none. So, I searched high and low on the web for something similar, and finally found my dress at Dorothy Perkins! Now, I’d never purchased anything from Dorothy Perkins so I wasn’t sure about the fit, but they have a cool tool that allows you to put in your measurements, and it spits out a size recommendation. I ended up going with a size 10 and this thang fits like a glove! I’ll definitely be buying from DP again in the very near future!
Man, I looooove this dress but when I got it, I hung it up and kinda just stared it at because it is VERY body conscious, and quite frankly I don’t have the slimmest midsection in town. Lol!! But, Saturday I attended the #SadiddySweetLife brunch for the latest issue of Sadiddy Magazine, and I had to make my girl Adrienne proud and unleash my inner sadiddy on ‘em! So, I sucked it up (pun intended), and rocked. my. dress. #poochbedamned.
On the flip side, this dress gave me all kinds of curves that aren’t really there! I’m telling you guys, my hips are virtually non-existent in real life, but in this dress I totally have hips and even a little bootie! YES!!!!! (Jazmine even commented on it, and I promptly told her it was an illusion…but I’ll take it! Lol)
I absolutely loved the way the dress looked with my OTK boots and leather fingerless gloves (duh!). It was one of those outfits that I just didn’t want to take off…that is until I ate those jerk chicken wings at 255 (BOMB!), and could no longer breathe. Lol!!! (kidding…kinda!)
