Super Bright

I'm normally the type of person that gravitates towards neutral colors, but I do love bright pink! I think it started with trying bright lipsticks and now I love it for my tops too. I haven't worn this top out yet and was playing with different outfit ideas and thought this pairing would make for a great girl's night out look. I have an affinity towards simple flowy blouses with balloon sleeves and if I can remember correctly, I have 2 similar blouses in a terra cotta and black color. The sleeves' length of this blouse is super long (approx 24.5") and I took 2" off and also made the wrist circumference smaller. Yay to doing my own alterations! :D

I love the cutout and zipper detail of this dress so I was crossing my fingers that this would fit decently. Unfortunately, it's so baggy and big everywhere that I couldn't justify keeping it. I'm wearing a size XS and think this would fit someone that is a 2-4P. This dress would not be good for someone with narrow shoulders either. What's nice about this dress is that it is fully lined! My co-worker always laughs at me when I tell her, this is only X amount of dollars, plus it's fully lined! I only say that because it's a lot of work to fully line a dress; it's like making two dresses and sewing one to the other. So yes, that is definitely the redeeming feature of this dress.

  1. That sucks the cutout dress didn't work out! The color and style is so awesome. It does bag around the waist, so probably a good idea to return if you don't like the fit.
