There is nothing more satisfying than turning heads, getting oohs and aahs and compliment after compliment for your figure hugging dress. Whether you’re stepping out of a taxi or making your way into an event, we all revel in the moment – and this dress in particular had me feeling some kind of way with all the extra ruching.
When you’re a certain size and your proportions don’t exactly do you justice like Beyonce and Cardi B, you’re inclined to jump at outfits like this that fill you up in all the right places. To be perfectly honest with you guys, I didn’t grab this off the rail with excitement. I went into El Boogie on my routine snoop around and the sales attendant whispered that I should try it on. I went into the changing room with 7 outfits and this was the last one I tried on because I wasn’t convinced it would be figure flattering – but Boy was I wrong.
I tried it on and instantly got a lot of Misspap, Pretty Little Thing and Oh Polly vibes. I meannn…..I look like I have well rounded hips. Everything about this dress ticks the boxes for me – the color, the length and the fact that it has a belt that cinches my waist in.
Keeping with my summer trend, I paired this outfit with another cute mini purse from Maknisy. This time around, I opted for a crocodile skin dark purple that picks up on the dark tones of my dress – and I hit the streets.
