While at Viva, I spent a whole bunch of time in the Stop Staring stall searching for awesome bargains. The first item that caught my eye was the Cherry Dress, so cute but classic. As I mentioned before the creator of SS, Alicia Estrada was there helping the ladies shop for the perfect ensembles. She is a doll, super down to earth and a pleasure to get to know. Alicia truly appreciates her customers and listens to their feedback with an open mind.
Available in XS – XL & Plus Sizes 12 to 18 – MSRP $158USD
Without fail, I am always a size Large in Stop Staring clothing whether it is stretch or non stretch material. It is always a blessing to know your size is going to be spot on and not have to worry about fit. The bust features the classic SS wrap twist, perfect for a variety of bust sizes. The cap sleeves have a slight puff, creating a soft feminine touch. If you are concerned about your mid section, the side rushing conceals marvelously. The fabric is a high quality millenium stretch, note there is definitely not as much stretch as their bengaline.
The Cherry dress only requires light shapewear if any, even though it is a form fitting wiggle. Why? The thickness of the fabric conceals and is quite forgiving creating a sleek silhouette. Perfect for day or night, you can pair it with a simple pair of pumps or your highest stiletto heels. To complete the look, add a feather fascinator to your outfit.
With much excitement, I cannot wait for the Stop Staring Fall 2012 line to be released. JBR Clothing has shared some sneak peaks of what is to come and it is spectacular! If you enjoy Joan’s look from Mad Men, you will love the new styles coming soon. Classic and perfect to wear to the office. With the upcoming trade show in Vegas, we are sure to see many more previews for Fall/Winter.
