After work today I went to Banana Republic to try on this gray dress. Bridesmaid Chloe is rethinking the bridesmaid skirts for her wedding, and revisiting a controlled party dress free-for-all. Here's the dress on the model - cute, and potentially flattering to my particular waist to hip ratio.Here it is on me. Still cute from the front and the back. BUT. The side view was really terrible. I'd show you, but my mirror shot came out grainy. The pleating was poorly arranged and probably not good on anyone with hips over a size 2. Also, the fabric was kind of cheap feeling. So I didn't buy it.
I did buy this fun thing. It has pockets and was stupidly on sale. It totally does not go with my leopard print and patent ballet flats.
It really is that bright. Like a highlighter. Or a really vicious margarita. My favorite kind.
