When the show Pan Am began on ABC, the Vintage/Retro community were all a buzz about the stunning wardrobe the cast were wearing! The first few episodes featured dresses by Stop Staring. Christina Ricci’s character caught my eye when she was wearing a classic light grey wiggle dress…I just had to have it! After a little online research, I found it!
The Ashley dress in dove grey by Stop Staring – Available in sizes S to 3X in black, dove grey and powder blue.
Until now, I have not purchased any Stop Staring for one simple reason…PRICE! The Ashley dress retails for $145USD. Being a girl on a budget I was on a mission to find this dress at an affordable price!
Low and behold…enter Daddy O’s. They had the Ashley dress in a powder blue for a steal at $95 but out of stock in my size. I quickly sent them an email to see if they could order in the dove grey for the same price. Immediately they responded saying they would contact the supplier and let me know ASAP. Within a couple days the good news came…it was available! Order placed.
Stop Staring fit is very true to their size chart. I opted for a Large in the Ashley based on my measurements – bust 36, waist 29, hips 41. I did not size down as per the size chart since I wanted it to be workplace appropriate. It fits soooooo perfectly and the quality is wonderful. It is made from millennium stretch fabric that is utterly comfortable and versatile. The amazing quality does reflect the retail price tag to be completely honest.
The Ashley comes with a charcoal grey belt but you can definitely accessorize it however you wish. You can dress is down for a casual day look for work or go glam for an evening on the town.
If you love something enough, do not let price get in the way of having it! There are always options out there, with a little research you will stumble upon what your heart desires. Stay tuned for a retailer review on Daddy O’s!
