Luckily the shirt I wore with black pants earlier in the night, was actually more like a shirt-dress or “shress” as my friend Heather calls it, and, although it was on the shorter side, it definitely passed. It worked well because it was a warm evening and a night out dancing in polyester-blend pants that don’t breathe can just about do you in! So, I just stored my pants in my bag and 0ff I went!
Last night, as I was waiting for my friend LC to get off work, I stopped into American Apparel to kill some time. I have been eyeing their Nylon Tricot Figure Skater Dress for quite some time now and even designed an outfit around it, but had never actually tried it on…mostly because I was convinced it would look quite ridiculous on me. Well, this time around, I gave it shot. I unsheathed myself of my many winter layers and slipped on a bright magenta version of the short, slightly high-waisted shiny dress, and come to find out, was pleasantly surprised! I didn’t look like a complete freak, and the salesgirl even complimented me on how it looked! (Well, in retrospect, she was probably just doing her job, but still.) I was pleased, and think I will go purchase it this weekend. And, seeing that I am going to opt for magenta versus charcoal, I decided to go with a different look than the one I created before. I think I will play up the bright color and make it more flirty and fun!
Now tell me, what do you think of this dress? Would you ever wear it? What is your favorite flirty or sassy dress? SPxx
