As a recovering online impulse shopper, I now force myself to really think about each purchase to know if it’s truly meant to be. Sometimes that can mean waiting several months to acquire the object of my affection but then it won’t lead to the dreaded buyer’s remorse and a closet full of unworn clothes. Patience is truly something that can pay off long-term; who doesn’t want to buy pretty things on sale and avoid paying full price? Needless to say, my patience was truly rewarded when I was presented with the opportunity to feature the dress I have coveted for ages, the magnificent Stop Staring Timeless dress in green.
Available in sizes XS to 3X in a variety of colours ~ MSRP $158
Being a longtime Stop Staring customer, I have always found their sizing to be consistent to the brands’ size charts throughout their various collections over the years. Depending on the material of the specific dress (which Stop Staring indicates on their website), you will want to adhere to the size chart accordingly. Based on my current measurements (36-27-39), I fit precisely within the size Medium range. When the Timeless dress arrived, I couldn’t wait to see if it lived up to my expectations after all this time. From the moment I tried it on; I didn’t want to take it off. The fit was perfection and required no alterations at all. The Timeless dress features a delicate keyhole cut-out with sash detail, cap sleeves, with matching belt and a sash off to the left side of the skirt. Made from a tropical stretch fabric, which is not quite as stretchy as their millennium bengaline. At 5’-4” tall, the skirt falls a couple inches below the knees.
The sheer elegance and unique design in such a stunning shade of green is a winning combination all around. The Timeless dress captures the soft femininity of the era while accentuating the female form in a classic manner; this is not your typical wiggle silhouette. I chose to pair it with my staple Rago 1294 girdle to ensure to create a sleek line as intended by the design. If green isn’t your favorite colour, the Timeless dress is also available in red, plum, baby pink, blue & more. There is no doubt that this classic beauty has won the hearts of several celebrities as well…now you can steel their look at an affordable price!
The Timeless dress is ideal for any occasion or in my case, perfect work attire for the office. Accessorizing all depends on the setting or the look you wish to achieve. With the lovely sash details, I would opt to keep things simple with a bracelet and round toe pumps or strappy kitten heels. To create a genuinely glamorous look, add a bold chunky layered necklace, long satin gloves and sky high heels to knock their socks off.
After waiting for soooooooo long, it is truly a rewarding feeling when the object of your affection turns out to be even better than you had imagined. The Timeless dress instantly became a personal favorite in my collection and I will be the first to say…DON’T WAIT!!!
