After this review I will be all caught up on my purchases from the Viva Rockabilly Weekender and moving onto a bunch of new goodies for you ladies. It’s Friday and I’m enjoying a day off from the office with the most perfect summer weather to boot! I’ll try to keep this post short & sweet so you can start your weekend now. The Stop Staring Vintage Floral Swing Dress was another fabulous selection by the lovely Alicia Estrada, a refreshing switch from all their wiggle dresses.
Once again, I fit in the Large perfectly with no need for any alterations. At first glance, I was hesitant on this very pink floral print as this was definitely not my usual cup of tea )since it is ultra girly) but Alicia insisted on giving it a try. Let’s just say, she knows her clients better than they know themselves at times. As soon as I tried it on, I was smitten. The bust area is super well constructed to give the busty ladies great support even while wearing a strapless bra. The rushing is perfect to hide those trouble tummy areas with a delicately flared swing skirt, no petticoat required. If you are inbetween sizes in the bust area, definitely order up as there is no extra room to squeeze them in.
The Vintage Floral Dress has become one of my go-to outfits this summer…it works for pretty much every occasion. To make it work appropriate, just add a cropped cardi or shrug with a pair of wedges. For those of you that shy away from halter dresses, you can easily convert this to regular straps with the length provided. The Vintage Floral is also available in a wiggle style as well. I believe this print has been discontinued but there are still some online retailers that have them in stock.
A valuable lesson learned from Alicia, do not overlook any garment regardless of what you may think…give it a try as you never know how incredible it will look on you!
