If there’s a dress that makes me want to attempt a social life, this just might be it.
I pre-ordered it at the beginning of last year from the fabulous ladies at Topsy Curvy, because shit like this is like gold dust in plus sizes. As you know, if you read my last post, I’ve taken a bit of hiatus from things because shit got too hard so I don’t think they actually stock this anymore. BUT it might inspire you to look at flared sleeves because who doesn’t want to look like a sorceress? Exactly.
It’s got a gorgeous, off the shoulder neckline. The elastic is quite firm so while it won’t last all day it’s not going to roll up straight away. The material is quite thick too, which I think suits this kind of dress. Oftentimes they are made in that shitty polyester material that makes you feel like you’ll burst into flames if you ran for the bus. Good job this bitch isn’t running anywhere.
While it is a dress you could totally wear this with leggings for the colder months, which I absolutely intend to do because leggings forever.
What I love about this brand is that their super affordable and they model the stuff themselves. I’ve got my eye on a couple of other bits of theirs so when I finally pay my college course off I might treat myself. It’s hard to find cute, casual stuff that isn’t just bullshit graphic tee-shirts. Like, I don’t care if prosecco made you do it, Susan.
Isn’t it great when you find gothy stuff in the mainstream? I know if I bought this from somewhere like Killstar this shit would cost me double (and not in my size) So thanks, Topsy Curvy!
