Ray-Ban “Original Wayfarer” Sunglasses / White House|Black Market Instantly Slimming Dress (c/o) / Vince Camuto Heels (old) / Maje Leather Jacket (last season)
Happy Thursday! I hope you all have been having a fabulous week. Now let’s discuss this little black dress. :) I am sure many of you are aware of the fact that I don’t often wear extremely tight clothing or anything too fitted on the blog. So when White House|Black Market approached me about trying out their new “Instantly Slimming Dress” in this sleek black style, I was hesitant at first since I usually save tighter outfits for nights out where the lighting is dim and you can’t really even see my outfit. But this particular dress is known for its built-in shapewear under silky-soft stretch jersey knit and has a faux surplice neckline that begins a descent of diagonal tiers that encourage curves in all the right places. After hearing that, I decided to give it a go and I have to say, upon zipping up this little number, I instantly felt comfortable (the fabric has a lot of stretch and give) and not at all restrictive, which is saying a lot for a body-con dress! I also like how even though it is very fitted, the sleeves and length are a bit longer and the paneling across the dress flatters and fits well over my curves.
