This year, I’ve been feeling the pretty pastels and soft florals. I love how feminine and girly they are and I notice that I’ve been filling my closet with such. In my humble opinion, florals and pastels are a good way to get in touch with your girly side! I remember growing up, florals were my favorite pattern, (the tasteful patterns I might add) and I would be teased about it. But that didn’t stop me not one bit! My blankets, dresses, sweaters were floral.
So when I saw this dress from Torrid a couple months ago, I fell in love with it. But I wasn’t interested in paying full price for it. Let’s face it, Torrid is a little overpriced especially when I would find loose threads from brand new pieces. I walked away because $90 for a dress was too much for me. So, I went back a month or so later and still saw it there. Still full price. Still pretty. I decided to grab it. Yup. Full price and no coupon. But let me tell you, it was one of the best full price purchases I made.
I absolutely love this dress! I purchased this in a 3x (my Torrid size) and it fits perfectly! Can we talk about this? I’ve never been one to wear halter style dresses but the fit on this dress is superb. This dress is darling, and not a thread out of place. It is very lightweight with the tiered ruffles going on. This dress has the high-low effect but its too exaggerating. With a white cardigan or light pink one, I can wear this to church with a nude pair or heels, or date night with some comfy sandals.
I love how it cinches above the waist and it camouflages everything giving a very feminine silhouette.
The best thing about this dress, is that it will last for several spring/summer seasons to come. The print, the style and colors, are here to stay, so I will definitely get my price per wear out of this. I wore this dress this past Sunday with my bright pink block heels from Forever 21 that you’ve seen several times and my matching Kate Spade purse. If you want a more romantic, subtle look, a pair of nude heels and a rose colored crossbody/clutch does the trick as well.
If you’re looking to spend more money than you would on a piece of clothing, make sure you can wear it next year and not stuffed in the back of your closet.
