Polka Dots are Back

Hello Hello!!  So a few months ago I was just looking for something with polka dots, I don’t know why but I was really like I need some dots in my life.  So I was kind of looking all over the place for a dress that I really just loved.  I found myself on asos.com which i think has the best selection of all the sites I looked at.

Now this is the dress that I bought

So yes this is a screenshot of the dress I bought.  So as you can see it is a midi length dress which as I am a short person can be a little bit of a problem.  So I forgot to take any pics of the dress before I started messing with the hem.  Now at first I was a little hesitant given how big the print was but after I got it I knew it would work.

So I messed around with the hem to get it a little bit better of a length, now I did this myself with a pair of scissors and drew on the hem of another of my dresses that I like.  I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone else, I was okay with if I messed up I was out a dress or I was going to cut the hem shorter and make a mini dress.  But I you are a little bit more worried I would recommend a tailor.

So I went with a rounded hem that comes up on the side and is a tiny bit longer in the back.  Honestly after I went after it with the scissors I was no sure how it would go.  But the minute I put it on and looked in the mirror I loved how this hem worked out.  The dress I copied was a tighter dress so I wasn’t sure how it would work out.  I LOVE IT!!  I am actually surprised how much I love it.

This is the type of dress that I really like so much.  It is lose but has this cinched waist that really stands out.  I honestly have not worn this out yet (black long sleeve dress doesn’t go well in summer).  But I am excited to mess around with styling it.  I think it will look really good with belts.

Online Shopping

Hello, hello!-  So I was talking with someone a few weeks ago and somehow online shopping came up and they told me that they never online shop.  And this blew my mind, I was a little dump founded and didn’t know what to say.  Maybe its just me but I almost exclusively shop online, this is partially due to malls sometimes make me claustrophobic since there are so many people crammed into one space.

So I just wanted to share some sites that I shop on really often and some that I have been testing out and its working out.  Now I know people will ask about sizing issues and aren’t I nervous I will buy something and it won’t fit?  Yea I am but most places have free returns so I don’t worry about it as much.  Pants are the one item that I will not order online, just because they are so different across the board and you really need to try them on before buying.

Ellie Clothing

I found them on Facebook about 3 years ago and since then I have bought so much from them that it is a significant part of my wardrobe.  This is my favorite place to look for items that no one else will have (they are located in Alabama and I live in the North).  They have great colorful tops and some amazing dresses.  I love their dresses, they can be worn casual or formal, I have worn them bumming around but also to work marketing events.

My recommendation with them is to follow them on Instagram because a lot of their stuff is not on the website but they will put stuff on their Instagram and you can comment and be invoiced.  This is really where some of the best stuff I have bought from there came from.

So obviously since they are half my wardrobe I couldn’t insert a picture all of the stuff I have bought there but here are a few.  The ones on the left are the ones I wear to fancier events and the two on the right are so awesome I wear them all the time in the summer.  I haven’t worn the green one yet but I seriously cannot wait to wear it, the cut outs on the bottom are amazing.

Amazon

I love Amazon, I have Prime so it is a no brainier that I order clothing and accessories off of here.  I really love it because you can typically find what you are looking for at a really reasonable price.  I have recently bought some great items that I really love to wear.  A lot of the stuff I have bought are casual but I have also bought my trench coat off of Amazon and I love it.

Lately I have been buying accessories on here,  the purse selection is on point.  I don’t even really look at any other site when I am looking for a new purse.  To me shopping elsewhere for a purse is not worth it because Amazon has a better selection at a better price.

Ah the purses, my favorite part front one, middle purse, and back one.  I have talked extensively about the other two in prior posts.  But I’ll reiterate this romper is awesome and this shirt is so comfortable.

New York & Co.

I usually look for work dresses on here but typically only buy if they are sizes S, M, L.  Last year I bought 2 of the same dress in different colors, and it is one of my best dresses.  I highly recommend, but I could not find the exact one I did find this one.

So those are my staples of my online shopping problems, there are a few other sites that I have bought a few things off of but have not developed a really good opinion of.  The times I have ordered have been good.
