Shop the look:

Woah, is that some knee showing in this post? Craziness! I’ve hardly worn anything that showed a little leg since I came to Sydney (thanks to its windy conditions).

It’s also been awhile since I’ve worn a dress that is this fitted. However, this dress being fitted is the reason I can get away with wearing something a little shorter in the breezy weather here…I won’t have to worry about this dress flying up over my head at any given moment! While I don’t normally wear clingy dresses, I do feel this one is quite flattering with the way it’s cut. (And I think it’s quite unique!) It’s also just loose enough that it’s also still comfortable. (Which really, that’s the only thing that matters…right?)

I also love the detail on this dress from It looks like it was hand painted! (It’s an affordable price, so I don’t think it actually was…but.) Oh, and I can throw it in my washing machine – no dry cleaning required! Love it.

The only complaint I have is I don’t love the shininess of the pleather detail. I feel like this dress would literally look like a million bucks if it wasn’t for that. But oh well, I still think it’s gorgeous. (And it isn’t actually a million dollars – so who am I to complain?)

*Also be sure to look at the sizing table before placing an order. This dress ran slightly small, and I did have to size up from what I normally order.

    Loooved your dress, dear Lindsey, really loved it! I liked the color, the flowers, the cut, all! I think that even though you don’t like tight dresses, this one is really beautiful and flattering, and the details are special – slit, shorter skirt underneath… and I think I agree with you – without the pleather detail it would look more beautiful, BUT having said that, I still loved it and you look stunning! Loved the shoes too! Hope you have a nice week, Lindsey!

    Oooo see I was going to say the pleather was my favorite part! I think it adds some sass to the look! So funny how everyone sees things differently – regardless, it’s a very pretty silhouette on you!

      It’s not so much that I don’t like the pleather detail…I just don’t like how shiny and flimsy looking this pleather is. I think if it would’ve been made a little better (I have some pleather stuff that looks fantastic)…I really would’ve added to this dress even more. I do appreciate what they were trying to do, though! 🙂 And thank you so much, Sara!

    This dress is really cool and different. I actually really like the pleather detail, and it doesn’t come off as too shiny to me – but maybe it’s different in real life. It’s also great that it’s easy to wash – always a win! Have a great weekend, Lindsey!

      Thank you so much, Richa! Haha, I guess the pleather is definitely “you gotta see it in person to know what I mean” kind of a thing. And oooh yes, I’m heading to Wisconsin tomorrow and there won’t be anymore leg showing then, haha. It is going to be so cold!
