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 VIPme.com. 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.
