Hidden Gems Of Amazon – Stripes And Floral Print 3/4 Sleeve Tee

Hidden Gems of Amazon

Hidden Gems of Amazon

I have another hidden gem of Amazon to share with you today. Today I am sharing a tee with you, which I don’t think I have done before in this series. We will be looking at the Stripes And Floral Print 3/4 Sleeve Tee. In addition to this link to the seller I have purchased from I will also be linking to a couple of other sellers that carry the same tee, as this particular seller has sold out of quite a few options. Plus some of the other sellers have different color options available as well.

For sizing reference, I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″ And I wear a 40DDD bra.

Floral and stripe print plus size tee

The seller I bought from is Suoozy. This tee comes in sizes Small to XX-Large, and the seller I bought from offers five color options. But, like I said earlier, this particular seller is sold out of some sizes and colors. The sizing the seller has posted is:

BUST                      WAIST               LENGTH

S   Relax                       Relax                 Front
36.2′( 92cm)             33′( 84cm)          26.8′(68cm)

The color I am wearing is just referred to as black. I have it in a size XX-Large. The listing says, “NOTE: The size is a little smaller than standard us size. Please choose one size larger if you want slightly loose fit.” The largest size they have is the XX-Large, and so I could not have sized up if I wanted to. But based on the measurements I thought it should still work on me. For most tops, unless it is specifically meant to have a very loose look, I prefer something that is a little more fitted.

So I went ahead and took the chance on the XX-Large size. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the fit was rally good for me. It was quite comfortable, and it still has some extra room to stretch.

My one and only complaint with this shirt was the neckline felt a little high for me. It was okay as long as I had it in place, but if it shifted at all it rubbed my neck. This is probably not going to be a big issue for most people, but my neck area is just very sensitive due to my fibromyalgia.

I have found two other sellers that have this t-shirt. You can get it from Romacci, and you can get it from Dearlovers.

For anyone that is interested, I have paired with this tee a pair of Torrid Premium Ultimate Stretch Jeggings in the Dark Wash with Fading and a pair of Skechers Relaxed Fit: Savvy – Nobodys Fool.

Tell me in the comments below what you would like me to try next here on the blog. It can be another item on Amazon, a brand you are anxious to try, or a product you want reviewed.

Hidden Gems Of Amazon – Afibi Women Full Length Blending Chiffon Maxi Beach Skirt

Hidden Gems of Amazon

Hidden Gems of Amazon
I actually purchased this skirt much earlier in the year intending to share it with you all when most people would buy warm weather clothing. But as many of you know life and health has hit me hard this year. I considered just not posting since it is so late in the year, but I thought “ya know there are people who live in warmer areas and vacation to warm climates can happen at anytime”. So we proceed with this Amazon hidden gem.

For reference I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Torrid or Lane Bryant. I am in a 40 DDD bra. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″ And I am 5′ 8″

Chiffon Maxi Skirt bought on Amazon

This is the Afibi Women Full Length Blending Chiffon Maxi Beach Skirt. It is available in 27 different designs and sizes Small to 3X. I am wearing here design N7 in size 3X.

I ordered the size 3X because they did not have a size chart available, and no one wearing plus sizes had reviewed the skirt at the time I ordered. I thought it was better to play it safe and order the 3X. I felt this fit okay since it had an elastic waist, but I definitely had a few inches of stretch unused. I could have easily went with the 2X. I think you really should be safe ordering whatever your typical size is.

Afibi Women Full Length Blending Chiffon Maxi Beach Skirt

The waist is elastic with a decorative tie. This particular design has peacock feathers at the end of the tie. As the name of the item says, the skirt is made out of chiffon. The chiffon layer is quite thin and delicate. There is a built-in slip, but the slip only comes to about the top of the knees.

Plus size maxi skirt

I decided to pare this with a different top to show you as well. I think that because of the pattern and colors in the skirt you have a lot of options for what you can pair it with.

Typically now is when I would be sharing what I paired with the skirt. But honestly everything I have with it in both looks was either bought at an outlet and no longer available, or it was in my closet for years already. So unfortunately I have no way to direct you to any of those other items.

, Chiffon maxi skirt available in plus sizes on Amazon

This is really one of those skirts that is great to have on hand for summer for those really hot days when you just can’t even. You know the ones I am talking about right? But it would work equally well to take and wear over a bathing suit on the beach for when you need something to wear when you want to walk right off the beach to restaurant.

Tell me in the comments below what color you would pair this skirt with.

Plus Size OOTD: How Do You BOHO?

So the wonderful people over at Simply Be contacted me and asked if I would like to help show some of their clothes to my readers, and I gladly said yes. The great thing about the clothing at Simply Be is that they have something for every style. Whether you go for the most casual of look or you want something more fashion forward Simply Be has it.

They told me to pick something myself from several different categories. Dresses was one of the categories, and since I am a dress girl I concentrated my search there. I had a hard time making a decision because they have so many styles I love. I ultimately wanted to make sure I showed something that a little different from anything I had shown previously, and that they still had fully in stock all sizes. This ultimately led me to this Joe Browns Stunning Maxi Dress .

For reference on sizing, my measurements are bust 49″ waist 42″ hips 54″. I typically wear a size 20 or 2X in most plus size brands. I have made almost all of the pictures clickable in this post so you can see details of the dress or fit more close up.

Joe Browns Plus Size Maxi Dress available at Simply Be

This dress is available in US sizes 8 to 28. I had a hard time deciding on a size because I had heard that this brand runs small. However, this is my usual size 20 that I am showing here, and this is what I thought:

The fit was great, especially in the waist and hips. And if you are on the bustier side, this might be a great dress option for you. I had plenty of extra room there both on the sides and with the adjustable straps. The length was great for me at 5’8″. I think the length is going to work best for anyone 5’6″ to 5’10” (this is just my opinion and may differ based on where you like for your dress to hit), however if you are shorter I really don’t see anything that would prevent you from having this one hemmed.

This does have an interior lining that hits just above the knee on me. There isn’t really any stretch to the fabric, so make sure that you order the size that you need, and not something your counting on stretching to fit. The straps are wide, yes wide enough to wear with a bra.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The pictures do not do this one justice, it is even prettier in person. I love the BOHO style and all the little unique details this dress has. There is a tasseled tie cord at the bust. And embroidery abounds. You have an embroidered bib and two stripes that run parallel down the front of the dress. And in the embroidery there are tiny yellow gold sequins dispersed throughout.

I think one of the great things about the BOHO style, especially with more minimalistic looks like this, you can really accessorize in a lot of different ways. While you might think of boho as being very plain, at the heart of it the boho lifestyle is all about being a free spirit. So why shouldn’t you be free to do what you want and wear what you want with a look like this. So I actually decided to style this dress a couple of different ways.

Joe Brown Stunning Maxi Dress paired with Bear Claws and a Multi-Sac

I kept the same minimalistic makeup for both looks. I also have curls in my hair for both looks, but with this one I kept my hair like I normally wear it with no accoutrement. I paired it with the BareTraps Jeeny sandals, the Reflex Tote from Multi-Sac in the color Hazel, and Flip-up Round Lens Metal Frame Sunglasses. Check out each of the accessories closer up below.

With the second look I still wanted to stay kind of simple, because that is more true to who I am and what I like 80% of the time when it comes to accessories, but I also wanted to do something that read as being a little more glam to me.

BOHO GLAM look with Joe Browns and Simply Be

For this look I stuck with all black and gold accessories. I really wanted to play up the accents of gold from the sequins on the dress. I changed up my hair just a tad. And the only thing I changed about my makeup was the color of lip gloss I had on.

Joe Brown Dress from Simply Be Styled with Urban Expression, Avenue Sandals, and other accessories

For my accessories I added a gold chain headband that came from a three-piece set I got on Amazon just recently. It’s really thin, and you can just barely see it in the picture. But in person it looked great with the dress and gave it a slight 70’s flare. I have on a lace butterfly choker that I have had for a while. The purse is a fold over crossbody bag from Urban Expressions. The shoes are the Sybil sandal from the Avenue’s Cloud Walker line. Check out the close-ups below.

I really think this is a dress that you will not regret adding to your wardrobe. There are so many more ways you could style this dress. And what a great dress for festival wear. And don’t forget to check out all the other great clothes from the Joe Browns line at Simply Be, as well as all the other wonderful brands of dresses. They really do have something for everyone.

Tell me in the comments below how you BOHO. How would you style this dress? Do you prefer a more minimalistic boho, boho glam, boho chic, etc..?

Plus Size OOTD – White & Blue Denim

Plus size outfit of the day

Plus size outfit of the day

One of my favorite trends from this spring and summer has got to be the pairing of white and blue denim. Something about it screams cool. It’s the vacation look you can wear for a staycation.

For reference I am wearing either a size 2 or 20 in all the clothing. My measurements are bust: 49″ waist:42″ hips:56″ And I wear a 40DDD bra. I always try to share my personal measurements and sizing because I want to help you better assess what size you need.

Back view of the plus size ootd

The jeans came from Lovesick (Torrid’s Sister Company) before they closed up this past spring. With the exception of them being a little longer than the average Torrid Jegging, I would say the look, fit, and feel are all the same. Just because of the length, the fit is better for me personally with Torrid. So if you want something that is essentially the same, take a look at White Wash Torrid JeggingPlus size White and Blue Denim outfit.

The cami is Torrid’s Foxi Cami in the navy blue color. If they are out of your size or you don’t like the color, they have lots of other colors that would work well with this look, and they are constantly adding new colors each season. And if this style isn’t for you, they also have other styles of camis that you might like better.

Plus size Torrid outfit with jacket open

The jacket was also from Torrid, however they do not currently have it in stock. It was their Embroidered Gauze Jacket. It’s always possible they would bring it back with enough request, or some of your local stores might still have them in stock.

Here are some alternate options that you might consider to go with this look in place of the jacket:

I wanted to give you some close up looks of the accessories for this look because I feel like they are really what pull this look together.

Denim Blue Livin' Dream Catch Me Sandal

These are Denim Blue Livin’ Dream Catch Me Sandal from Skechers. They are sold out on Skechers’ website. One seller on Amazon still has them in size 10. If that is your size and you want them, you can find those here. However, since 10’s aren’t going to fit everyone, I also found these awesome denim booties from BOBs, Sketchers other line, that would work amazingly with this look. You can find those here.

Denim and white tassel necklace

This is a denim tassel necklace I picked up at TJ Maxx back in the spring. There is no name brand tag on it, so I don’t have a brand or website to steer you towards to get this necklace. I did find a couple of necklaces on Amazon that had a similar look or feel to the. Check out the Boho Layer Tassel Necklace Denim Blues and the Long Tassel Wax Chain Turquoise and Denim Boho Tribal Choker Necklace.

Guess denim barrel bag

Though this wasn’t in the pictures above, this is the handbag that I have to go with this look. It is a Diego Multi-Denim Domed Satchel from Guess. I have had this for a while. The whole line is gone at Guess now, and I couldn’t find this exact purse for you, but I found almost the whole collection for you to check out on Amazon.

Hidden Gems Of Amazon – V28 Over Sized Maxi Casual Beach Dress

Hidden Gems of Amazon

Hidden Gems of Amazon

Guess whose back, back again? …. Okay so I’m not the Slim Shady, not even close. But I do think that you should tell a friend. All joking aside, it really has been a hot minute since I have done a fashion post.  April was the last time to be exact. And if you have been hanging in there with me while I have been recovering from health issues, I really appreciate it. And if you have been reading any of my insanely long health related posts recently, then I really appreciate you that much more.

But let’s get to what you are really here for, and that would be fashion and fit information on that fashion. If you are following me on Instagram or Twitter there is a chance you already saw some of the preview pictures of this dress and necklace. So far the feedback has been you guys really like the look of this dress. So here is the details.

Plus size maxi found on Amaon

This is from a seller going by V28 on Amazon. This is their Oversized Maxi Casual Beach Dress. If you go to their page you will notice they have it listed with three other styles of maxi dresses. This particular one is marked as the Flower 5 pattern.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The straps are adjustable in length. They are very thin though, so wearing a regular bra with straps is not going to be possible unless you don’t care if they are super noticeable. Now it is listed as beach wear, so I personally plan on throwing it over a strapless swimsuit I have. For the purposes of these pictures I paired it with a strapless bra that fits very similar to how the bathing suit top I have fits me.

Side view of the V28 maxi dress

Let’s talk about the sizing and fit. I ordered the size indicated by the size chart that would fit me best in their brand, that being a 20/22. Typically in most plus size brand I order size 2X or 20W, so their sizing was pretty on par. I do think the sizing was accurate. The fit was good with the exception of the chest sort of. It does fit me in the chest, but just barely. Not because it’s too tight, but just not enough material to cover everything. I would definitely have to say if you are in DDD cup like me, or larger, this might not be the right dress for you. But if you remember I did say they have two other designs, and those have much more fabric in on the top. But then again, maybe you are comfortable with showing a lot of side boob.

Their size range is pretty good. Sizes start at 4/6 and go up to a 32/34, and the best part is the price is the same no matter what size you are ordering. It’s a nice thrifty $12.99 for these dresses. And it has free prime shipping. It seems like a lot of sizes are sold out in this particular dress, but if you check each of the patterns I think they have everyone’s size left in something.

Just so you can check if they will have a size that works for you, here is their size chart:

US4/ 6 (Asia tag M) waist: 42.5″ bust: 34.6″ hip: 42.5″ dress length: 59″
US 8/10(Asia tag L) waist: 44″ bust:37.4″ hip:46.4″ dress length:59″
US 12/14(Asia tag XL) waist: 45.6″ bust:40.1″ hip:50.3″ dress length:59″
US 16/18 (Asia tag XXL) waist:47.2″ bust:44″ hip:54.3″ dress length: 59″
US 20/22(Asia tag 3XL) waist:27.5″ bust:48.8″ hip:58.2″ dress length: 59″
US 24/26(Asia tag 4XL) waist:31.4″ bust: 52.7″ hip:62.2″ dress length: 59″
US28/30(Asia tag 5XL) waist:35.4″ bust:56.6″ hip:66.1″ dress length: 59″
US32/34(Asia tag 6XL) waist:39.3″ bust:60.6″ hip:70″ dress length: 59″

You might notice the waist measurement seems really small. I am pretty sure this is an under-bust measurement and not a waist measurement. In the 20/22 I  ordered it says the waist is 27.5″, but my waist is 42.5″. Yet you can see that the dress fits me and it’s not tight at the waist.

V28 maxi dress, hidden gem of amazon and accessories

I found it really easy to accessorize with this dress. I threw on a pair of my favorite mirrored cat eye sun glasses. I also put on one of my newest necklaces, and what is my latest obsession. Every unicorn needs this necklace in their life. Its the iridescent leaf pendant necklace from a seller called BOTIQUELOVIN. The necklace is available in four other metallic shades and it sells for $9.99 and free prime shipping. All of the color options are pretty, but I really just can’t put in words how beautiful I think this iridescent shade is.

Here is a closer look at the necklace itself.

Irridescent leaf pendant necklace

The picture really doesn’t do it justice. I tried to show the color shift. It goes from purple to red, to green to gold.

I did get all of the pieces shown here at discounted prices for review purposes. However I was never asked to write this blog post, this was purely my own thoughts and ideas.

 

Tell me in the comments below what wardrobe or jewelry piece you are currently obsessed with. If you have a suggestion for what you would like me to try on future Hidden Gems of Amazon posts don’t forget to leave those in the comments as well.

Week Four & Five of #AllDressApril 2017

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

 

This post has been delayed for too long. Unfortunately I got sick near the end of All Dress April, and it has been hard to recover. But I am starting to feel better and I want to make sure to finish up this series for the years. If you have missed the previous post and want to start from the beginning, you can begin with Week 1.

I found I missed a lot of days this last week and a half due to my illness, but I did the best that I could. There were also a couple of days I couldn’t get a picture of what I wore. I will make notes for what happened each day.

 

Day 22

Day 22 of All Dress April. Maxi dress from Torrid

This is the Tiered Jersey Maxi Dress in black from Torrid. This color is no longer available, but they still have some sizes in the heather gray color. I have it paired with a denim jacket from Mwah Jeans. The hair piece is from Earth Bound Trading Company.

Day 23

I was not able to participate this day.

 

Day 24

I believe I wore a dress this day, but forgot to take a picture.

 

Day 25

City Chic Fleetwood Maxi Dress for Day 25 of All Dress April

This is the Fleetwood Maxi Dress from City Chic. At this time it is not available on their website. (I highly suggest that if you want them to bring it back you send them an email request) It may or may not be brought back, sometimes they do bring back popular items. In the meantime if you want this dress, you might consider the Luxe Gunmetal Leopard Printed Maxi Dress. It is very similar. The only differences I see is the sleeve is slightly different and its in a print.

Day 26

Day 26 of #AllDressApril

This dress is from Rue21+. It is no longer available on their website and I don’t see anything similar to recommend. The shoes I have on are a pair of Isaac Mizrahi wedges that I picked up from a seller on eBay.

Day 27

Wrap dress for the curvy body

This is the Power Dress from Society Plus. They were so kind to send me this dress to share with all of you during All Dress April. Make sure you check out full review. They have also just released this dress in a light pink and burgundy color block pattern for summer.

Day 28

I actually did wear a dress this day, but I didn’t get a picture because everything was so hurried.

 

Day 29

Day 29 of All Dress April

I didn’t have anyone to take pictures for me at the con, and I had forgotten my tripod for my actual camera. So a bad mirror selfie from my cell phone was all I could manage in my presses for time day. This one didn’t even get posted to Instagram.

The dress, not that you can see that much of it, is from Tripp bought at Torrid last year. As I write this, they do have a few left at Hot Topic.

Day 30

I was not able to wear a dress this day.

 

Tell me in the comments below what your favorite dress was, that you wore or saw this April.

The Wrap Dress From Society Plus That Works For Any Body Type

Wrap dress for the curvy body

I have always love the idea of a wrap dress, but in the past found myself only wearing the ones where the wrap isn’t the central focus of the dress but rather an overlay of bodycon dress or slip dress. I felt like any time I tried to wear a traditional wrap dress, or even some faux wrap dresses, they just didn’t fit my body very well. There always seemed to be gaping at the bust, weird uneven hemlines, and sometimes the belt would be too short to wrap around and tie.

So when Society Plus sent me their new wrap dress, a.k.a. The Power Dress, I have to admit I was a little hesitant. I should have known better though, everything I have purchased from Society Plus has fit me impeccably, and this was no exception.

As a reminder I typically wear a size 2X or 20W at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid. I wear a 40DDD bra. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 42″ Hips: 54″. I am showing this dress in a 22/24, and it was accurate to Society Plus’s size chart. Pro Tip: check the size chart for each individual item when shopping Society Plus. Each item is measured separately to give you a better fit.

Society Plus Power Dress

The great news is this dress has everything I was looking for. The fit is great. I never felt like I was going to come uncovered. The hemline looks like it should. The belt is plenty long enough. You can tell this dress is truly designed for a curvy body.

Back view of Society Plus Power Dress

Fits well in the back too. None of that raising up in the back . This is definitely a problem I am familiar with. Big booty problem y’all.

Wrap dress for the curvy body

I also have to say that the quality of this dress is amazing. If you have ever had a designer dress from like Adrianna Papell or Igigi from back in the day, that is what this feels like. And as a bonus for a lot of you ladies out there, it has pockets. I know that is a huge deal for a lot of you.

Plus size wrap dress from Society Plus

While I didn’t style this with jewelry, I did want to switch it up with different shoes and different hair. This is definitely the perfect office wear dress. But I really wanted to show how easy I think it would be to take this dress from work to work it.

If you are interested in trying The Power Dress, it is currently available in black and cobalt blue. It comes in sizes 14/16 to 30/32.

Tell me in the comments below if you have tried this wrap dress, and if so what you thought about it.

Week Three Of #AllDressApril 2017

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

We have made it 3/4 of the way through the month of April. It has felt like a whirlwind to me. So much has been going on in my life. So hard to believe there is only about a week left at this point.

If you missed last weeks #AllDressApril recap you can find it here. And as always you can see it on the daily when you follow me on Instagram.

 

Day 15

Grace Dress from Lindy Bop

This is the Grace Dress from Lindy Bop. This particular print is no longer available, but the style is available in various options of colors. The shoes are the A2 by Aerosoles Kaleidescope Dress Sandal. They do come in wide width. Mine are in the light pink color, though to me they don’t really look that pink. They are also available in a nude color. There are not many sizes left, but there are a few options left between the two colors.

Day 16

Cato's Maxi Dress

This was a super casual day hanging out a friend’s house. So no makeup and messy hair. And that also means wearing one of my super comfy dresses. This maxi dress is from Cato Fashions. But they always have a nice selection of plus size clothing. My flip flops are my favorite pair of leather Flojos. I have said this many times, they are the only flip flops I will wear anymore. They are so comfortable and the leather ones will last forever.

Day 17

This was one of two days I missed. Our weather is back to being all over the place and I just hadn’t felt well this week.

 

Day 18

Amazon dress

This dress is an Amazon find, and you most likely will see a full review of it come on one of it come up in the Hidden Gems of Amazon series here on the blog. It is the Dilanni Retro Deep-V Neck Half Sleeve Vintage Swing Dress. It’s available in both misses and plus sizes. Most of the plus sizes seem to be sold out in the black at the moment, but it is also available in red.

The shoes, I love them so much. They came from the good folks over at Zooshoo. These retro inspired heels are the Kym by J Adams. These, and most of the J. Adams shoes I have tried are a great fit for me. They have a rounded toe and the width is similar to that of Skechers. Great for anyone who finds themselves in between a medium and wide width. This particular pair of shoes I did receive at a discounted price for review purposes, but like always my opinion is my own.

Day 19

Cynthia Rowley Top and Kim Rogers Skirt

The top is Cynthia Rowley. I purchased mine from TJ Maxx. The skirt is from Kim Rogers Woman. I purchased this at Belk’s department store.

Day 20

Dress from Cato

This is another dress from Cato. I got this last fall and I am just now getting around to wearing it. I don’t normally care for asymmetrical hems, but I thought this one was quite nice.

Day 21

This was the second day I missed due to not feeling well.

Week 2 of #AllDressApril 2017

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

That’s right, we made it all the way through all of week two of All Dress April 2017. If you missed it you can catch up on Week One here.

Week two was mostly uneventful. I missed one day again, but I did not share a past outfit. I just felt really bad that day.

Day 8

Day 8 for all dress April Torrid Top Cato Skirt

This was one of those rare in between temperature days here in Kentucky. We usually only have temperature extremes, so I have a lot of clothes for both of those and not a lot of the in between temps you typically think of for Spring and Fall. This was me running out of in between things and throwing something together and hoping for the best.

So the top is from Torrid. I don’t believe they currently have it, but this is a top they bring back all the time in various colors and patterns. The skirt came from Cato’s last fall. It is supposed to be a patchwork style skirt. I love the way it looks, but it really just doesn’t go with anything in my closet. I most likely will be getting rid of it soon as I will be cleaning out items at the end of the month to make room for new.

Day9

Day of #AllDressApril City Chic Dress Rainbow Robin Dress

This beauty is from City Chic. It is their Rainbow Robin Dress, however it is no longer available to my knowledge. Don’t let that stop you from checking out City Chic though. They have tons of styles and prints to suit just about everyone.

Day 10

This was the day that I skipped.

 

Day 11

Torrid Insider Crop Top and Skirt for day 11 of All Dress April

This lace crop top and maxi skirt was from last years Torrid Insider Collection. I originally bought this to wear to a friend’s wedding, but the theme of the wedding got changed and I wore something different. Taking this picture was the one and only time it has been worn. So this will also be most likely leaving my closet at the end of the month.

Day 12

Maxi Dress from the Avenue for day 12 f #AllDressApril

This body con watercolor print maxi dress came from the Avenue. I have only worn it a few times, but I absolutely love it. The fabric is so soft to the touch. And the cut hugs the body just right.

Day 13 & 14

Day 13 and 14 of All Dress April had me wearing this Maxi Dress from One World

This One World Maxi got worn day thirteen and fourteen. I know you are probably wondering why I would wear the same dress two days in a row. Well since I work from home I often wear PJs while I am here. And on day thirteen I only left my house for maybe ten or fifteen minutes. So I put it back on the next day.

Week 1 of #AllDressApril 2017

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

Week 1 went down without too much of a hitch. I really only had one day where I didn’t feel like putting on a dress due to my health, so I shared a throw back Thursday picture instead.

Day 1

Little Black Dress from City Chic for day 1 of #AllDressApril

This is the Fit & Flare Poser Dress in Black from City Chic. It’s funny, but when I wore this last week they still had this dress in stock. However they are now sold out. They do still have a few sizes left in the Ruby color. Or if you are looking for a similar dress you might also like the Dark Romance Fit & Flare Dress or the Fine Lace Fit & Flare Dress.

Day 2

Maxi Dress bought for Hidden Gems of Amazon

You may recognize this dress from a previous Hidden Gems of Amazon post. It is the Roiii Plus Size Boho Floral Print Sleeveless Maxi Dress. If you want more information on fit you can find my previous post here.

Day 3

Cold shoulder maxi from Torrid for Day 3 of #AllDressApril

This is the Jersey Cold Shoulder Surplice Maxi Dress from Torrid. This is almost sold out, only available in a couple of sizes. Get it while you can.

Day 4

Day 4 of All Dress April

The top I am wearing here is from City Chic, though it is no longer available. Though they do occasionally bring items back, so if it’s something you are interested in I recommend letting them know.

The skirt is from Dressbarn from a couple of years ago. It is no longer available.

Day 5

SWAK Designs maxi dress for day 5 All Dress April

This animal print maxi dress is from SWAK Designs (a.k.a. Sealed With A Kiss Designs). I have had it for probably five years now. It is well worn. If you follow my on Instagram you know I jokingly refer to this as my lazy dress. I usually only wear it when I don’t feel like putting any effort into getting ready and I still get compliments on it. I wish I could say they still had this style available, but they do not.

Day 6

I shared this #tbt for Day 6 of #AllDressApril

So day six is the only day in week one I didn’t actually put a dress on. I wasn’t feeling well and just could not bring myself to do it. However day six happened to fall on a Thursday, so I shared a picture of one of my favorite dresses for #tbt (throw back Thursday). This is the Hot Summers Days Printed Chiffon Maxi Dress from City Chic. But if this isn’t quite the color scheme for you, they have a new one called the Pretty Day Maxi Dress that you might like better.

Day 7

Maxi dress from Simply Be for #AllDressApril

This is another favorite of mine. I love the funky 70’s feel with the neck tie, the front split, and the brown and orange paisley print. I got this a couple of years ago from Simply Be. This is no longer available, but check their website often. They always have unique funky pieces for reasonable prices in their house brand.
