once i tried on, though, i noticed some differences.
most notably, the white top of the ensemble dress is sheer. yes. sheer. because of this, i ended up going up to a size 8 (i own a size 6 in the vestiges.) because it's an 8, it looks a little too full in the skirt... catch 22 i suppose.
i tried it on a second time (still in an 8) another day to make sure it wasn't just the one i tried on.
turns out, still sheer. this time, i layered a ribbed mossimo tank underneath. but i am not sure what layering piece i would pick. the top is so sheer (and i am very pale) that anything shows up underneath it.
hmm. still undecided. certainly a sheer top makes it not worth full price, but the skirt fabric is adorable. do you think it could be made into just a skirt? maybe with a cute paper-bag waist?
but it does look cute with tabitha's abbreviated blazer, no? i can imagine the dress with my scarlet and crimson wedges now... (p.s., i am wearing a size 6 in the blazer - fits pretty true to size)
until next time,
