A Little Something Different

Vipme dress

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.

  1. Wow, such beautiful dress, you look absolutely stunning in this dress. I love the hand painted flower print and best thing that you can clean it in washing machine.

    What an amazing outfit!!! So glamorous! Total statement piece! I can’t believe you don’t need to wash it specially…that’s possibly the best part on top of an already best outfit, ha 🙂 XO

      Aw, thank you so much, Lauren! Haha! And always count that as one of the best parts of a piece of clothing – if it doesn’t require special care, I am so sold! 😉

  4. I really love this dress on you. It is a nice change to see fashion on your blog! I like it!

      Thank you, Miri! I generally post at least one outfit a week. 🙂

  5. Oooo see I was going to say the pleather was my favorite part! I think it adds some sass to the look! So funny how everyone sees things differently – regardless, it’s a very pretty silhouette on you!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      It’s not so much that I don’t like the pleather detail…I just don’t like how shiny and flimsy looking this pleather is. I think if it would’ve been made a little better (I have some pleather stuff that looks fantastic)…I really would’ve added to this dress even more. I do appreciate what they were trying to do, though! 🙂 And thank you so much, Sara!

    Loooved your dress, dear Lindsey, really loved it! I liked the color, the flowers, the cut, all! I think that even though you don’t like tight dresses, this one is really beautiful and flattering, and the details are special – slit, shorter skirt underneath… and I think I agree with you – without the pleather detail it would look more beautiful, BUT having said that, I still loved it and you look stunning! Loved the shoes too! Hope you have a nice week, Lindsey!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you so much, Denise! So glad you liked it too! I really like these shoes too…I wear them way too much, haha. Hope you have a nice week too! 🙂

  7. I’m loving your dress, it’s beautiful.
