A Little Something Different
Woah, is that some knee showing in this post? Craziness! I’ve hardly worn anything that showed a little leg since I came to Sydney (thanks to its windy conditions).
It’s also been a while since I’ve worn a dress that is this fitted. However, this dress being fitted is the reason I can get away with wearing something a little shorter in the breezy weather here…I won’t have to worry about this dress flying up over my head at any given moment!
While I don’t normally wear clingy dresses, I do feel this one is quite flattering with the way it’s cut. (And I think it’s quite unique!) It’s also just loose enough that it’s also still comfortable. (Which really, that’s the only thing that matters…right?)
I also love the detail on this dress from VIPme.com. It looks like it was hand-painted! (It’s an affordable price, so I don’t think it actually was…but.) Oh, and I can throw it in my washing machine – no dry cleaning required! Love it.
The only complaint I have is I don’t love the shininess of the pleather detail. I feel like this dress would literally look like a million bucks if it wasn’t for that. But oh well, I still think it’s gorgeous. (And it isn’t actually a million dollars – so who am I to complain?)
*Also be sure to look at the sizing table before placing an order. This dress ran slightly small, and I did have to size up from what I normally order.

I really like the fit of this dress. It is so flattering on you.
I actually don’t mind the leather either. Such a unique pick.
And great that you can show off some legs now when it is getting so cold here 😀

Thank you so much, Richa! Haha, I guess the pleather is definitely “you gotta see it in person to know what I mean” kind of a thing. And oooh yes, I’m heading to Wisconsin tomorrow and there won’t be anymore leg showing then, haha. It is going to be so cold!
This dress is really cool and different. I actually really like the pleather detail, and it doesn’t come off as too shiny to me – but maybe it’s different in real life. It’s also great that it’s easy to wash – always a win! Have a great weekend, Lindsey!
Thank you, Jen! Oh yes, it is in real life…a bit hard to tell in these photos. 🙂 Hope you’re having a great weekend too!
