Here's a quick review of a few things I purchased online lately...
I've had this thing wishlisted for months now and finally bought it. I needed a formal black dress and that big huge bow thing on the front actually called my name...Too bad it was too tight in the stomach area. *sigh*. That's my body for ya. I knew it'd be a challenge with this dress because of the way the skirt fits. It's pretty straight- and straight skirted dresses don't look good on me. I've been consistently losing weight- that's a plus. And I know I'll lose more. This dress, other than the fact it's too tight- and it's a size freaking *16*- (Nothing wrong with that, but my normal dress size is a 12/14, ladies. Uhm....) meaning I can't go up a size- it's gorgeous. I love the fabric and the chic-ness of it. With pearls? Yup. To die for in my opinion. J. Crew has a 60 day return policy. I think I'm gonna hang it in my closet and use it for motivation. If in 55 days I still look shitty in it, back it goes.... ;-)
LOVE the green with my coloring. LOVE the fit at the bottom. Do NOT love the fact that my boobs are popping some buttons left and right..."Loosen up mah buttons babe, UH HUH..." It pissed me off this did. The sleeves are tight as CRAP. The buttons won't button. I'm sad. See my face. lol. I'm keeping it around like the first dress, however. In time, we'll use this as a guide to see how much my upper body shrinks....Because this dress would be supah cute with some nude slingbacks and a statement necklace.
I'm so thankful today is Friday- I have no plans this weekend and that's a relief because frankly, I'm tired. :-) Hope you all have a nice weekend.
I'll be back Saturday to let you know how the race went and more reviews- I have a second shipment from J. Crew on the way from the big Sale!
