One thing I have always dreaded is dress shopping. I still remember the tears and overwhelming stress of shopping for my grade 8 graduation dress. Between my sisters upcoming wedding, and all of the events I have been going to, there has been a sudden on-slot need for owning more!
When Sonsi.com contacted me about their launch of the Re/Dress line I was really excited when I took at look. The line is from a plus size retail brand with vintage-inspired dresses, sweaters, tops and teggings (something I need to try out as well!). I instantly fell in love with the Melon Fresh Skater Dress. Pink, white, and horizontal stripes (what? I was excited about wearing horizontal stripes? YES!). I couldn’t wait to get it on, and had the perfect event coming up to wear it to – The Baby Signing Bible party!
I knew I had to look good that night. Not only was I getting on stage to do sign language along to a song, but I was getting up on stage to sign along to a Madonna song! I paired the dress with some black capri style leggings and a pair of cute heals which worked perfectly. As nervous as I was to get on stage, I felt really great in the dress and the flow of the skirt was perfect for a little dancing.
Not only did the dress work perfect for the event, but it works great for just any day out as well. Just recently I paired it with some flats, and a 3/4 sleeve cardigan. The fabric is ultra soft and comfortable. The skirt is full, and clearly from the picture below, so much fun to twirl in! I also think that it would work perfect for a bike riding dress, because really, I loving seeing ladies in pretty dresses cruising around on their bikes!
I love the dress, and the fact that it is extremely versatile. It worked great for the event, it works for a day out with my boys, and it’s something I would wear in to work at the new tattoo shop I am piercing in (WHAT? Yes, I need to post about these things – SOON!).
Make sure you check out the rest of the Re/Dress collection, and of course the awesome Melon Fresh Skater Dress. While you are there, be sure to check out what else Sonsi.com has to offer, I see some online shopping in my future!
