When it comes to shopping online, sometimes its hard to tell what will look good on you. With shipping fees, I really want to make sure I get it right the first time. I enjoy shopping and trying things on, I’ll put on dresses in different cuts/styles to learn what I like and what I don’t. Overtime I’ve developed a bit of a sixth sense when it comes to looking at an outfit and determining 1.) How it will look on me and 2.) What size I should get. Here are two of my most recent online purchases, below you can see how they look on the model and how they look on me.
I’m loving all of the floral prints coming out this season. This is my Cinco de Mayo outfit (it was *just* warm enough to pull this off with Gladiator Sandals) I spotted this floral/polka dot dress on the Torrid.com site and got it in what I thought was my size. It fit, but I wish I would have ordered it a size down, the flowy waist area allows for more room in the tummy area, but I felt like the bust could have been tighter. Oh, and for those of you wondering how I manage to go bare legged without chaffing issues, I swipe Gold Bond Anti Chafe Balm on my inner thighs and I’m good to go!
This dress I found on the Macy’s site, I ordered it in both pink and black because its such a classic cut, they’re now selling it in tangerine and turquoise too! I read the reviews on this dress and ordered it a size down, I’m really glad I did. It fit perfectly… the only tweaking I had to do was in the bust, the cross body effect left wayyyy too much room for The Twins to pop out, so I took a needle and thread and tacked it. The model has a smaller chest than I do though, so if you’re built like her you shouldn’t have a problem.
