All Dress April 2018 – Week Three

All Dress April

All Dress April

This month is moving along so fast, I can’t believe it is almost over. Week three of All Dress April is already completed, and we have just a week and a half left.

If you missed previous weeks, don’t forget to check out week one and week two before you leave.

This week is unfortunately a little light on the outfits, as you may already know I missed a couple of days due to life circumstances. And I am unfortunately out of any backup photos.

Day 15

Plus size cold shoulder maxi dress from Torrid on day 15 of All Dress April

This is the Cold Shoulder Jersey Maxi Dress from Torrid. I am wearing it in gray, which I got last year. They no longer have this color, but I have linked to it in the black color they have this year. I also saw it in olive green earlier this, and was a little sad that I missed out. I keep hoping that Torrid will bring that one back.

My jewelry is from Earth Bound Trading Company, and the shoes are from Skechers.

Day 16

 

I missed this day due to illness

Day 17

vintage style lace dress from Kiyonna for day 17 of All Dress April

For day 17 I had on this Luna Lace Dress from Kiyonna. I don’t know why, maybe its the simple elegance of this dress, but I always feel the need to put my hair in some sort of updo when I wear it.

I have it paired with some basic black pumps that I have had forever. An I also had on a pair of Betsey Johnson Cat Ear Sunglasses.

Day 18

Off the shoulder plus size maxi dress from ASOS Curve

Day 18 had me wearing a dress from ASOS Curve, and I think this is my favorite out of the newer dresses that I have purchased. This is the ASOS DESIGN Curve Bardot midi dress in floral print. They call it a midi, but to me it is a little long to consider a midi, I think of it as a maxi. I ordered this dress at the beginning of April, and at that time they had this dress in every size. However, as I am writing this, they seem to only have a couple of sizes left.

I have it paired with some green peep toe wedge heels that I got on Zulily several years ago.

Day 19

Plus size wiggle dress from Unique Vintage for day 18 of All Dress April

The dress I wore on day 19 seems to be the overwhelming social media favorite. This is the Unique Vintage 1960s Style Yellow Floral Long Sleeve Mod Wiggle Dress.  I picked this up on one of Unique Vintage’s $25 sales, and the plus sizes are now sold out. But it does look like they have it in some misses sizes. But if you just like this style, then Unique Vintage has lots of patters in their Mod Wiggle Dress.

I have it paired with a pair of rounded toe heels from Steve Madden. I have actually had these heels almost 20 years. I keep hoping they will come back because they are amazingly comfortable.

Day 20Lace Mod Dress from Simply Be for day 20 of All Dress April

On day 20 I wore this Simply Be Lace Dress With Tipping. If you are following along on any of my social media, then you know this was not my favorite dress on me. I love the dress itself, but think it would look better on a different body type. I want to be clear though, this isn’t me saying there is anything wrong with the dress or my body. Don’t be surprised if there ends up being a blog post on this topic soon.

I have it paired with a pair of Soft Style by Hush Puppies Women’s Gianna Dress Pump. You can’t really see them well, but they are a vintage looking pair of Oxford heels.

Day 21

On day 21 I missed again. I was off gallivanting around a college campus with my niece all day on her first college tour. Too much fast paced walking and climbing stairs for me to comfortably wear a dress. I had plans on wearing one when I got home, but the day went on for a longer than expected and I went to bed immediately.

 

That wraps up week three. Tell me in the comments what your favorite dress from this week was.

Welcome To #AllDressApril And So Much More

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

Today is the first day of April and it marks the first day of #AllDressApril. If you don’t know what I am talking about you probably haven’t been following me very long because in addition to participating last year, I have mentioned this no less than three times since the first of January. (I can’t help myself I am excited, I love dresses)

Essentially All Dress April or #AllDressApril is of course in April. The challenge is to wear a dress or skirt every day of April and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #AllDressApril. Of course everyone understands when you can’t, life happens. If you don’t do Instagram, no worries. You can alternatively post your photos to the Facebook Event Page.

 

Find the perfect look for everyone starring in your special day at Adrianna Papell! Dresses and gowns for every event. Shop the Bridal Suite!

Lots of bloggers and just women who have a love for fashion will be participating. It’s a great way to connect with others who love dresses and fashion as much as you do. And its a great way to find inspiration for your wardrobe. Everyone is welcome to participate, all body types, shapes and sizes. This should be a true body positive experience.

I have some things I am really excited to share with you. All this month I will be doing my best to show you completely different things than what I showed last year. I can’t promise there won’t be a few pieces duplicated though. I will be doing recaps for each week along with links to anything that is still purchasable.

I have a few special featured looks from places like Society Plus, Simply Be, and City Chic. And there will be Hidden Gems Of Amazon thrown in there somewhere too. But most exciting of all, and what I have been dying to announce for quite some time, later this month I will be hosting a giveaway with City Chic. It’s a really great one too, so make sure you keep watch for it. I will give you all the details then.

If you would like to take a look at the recaps from last year you can check out Week One, Week Two, and Weeks Three and Four.

Tell me in the comments if you will be participating in All Dress April. And make sure to tell me where I can follow you if you are participating.

All Dress April

A look at what I wore on the first week of All Dress April. I will link to anything that is still available to purchase.

 

Day 1

Look for Day 1 of All Dress April

The top is Torrid, and they don’t have this in right now, but they are always releasing this over and over. They do have a similar style called the Lace Jersey Babydoll Top.

The skirt is from Dressbarn.

Day 2

Oh the weather in Kentucky. Its that time of year here where we are experiencing all four seasons, often in the matter of a week. I left home and it was warm and no wind. We went to get pedicures and came out and it had dropped 20 degrees and we were having a wind storm.

The lace crop top and leggings are from Torrid. It is the Embroidered Lace Crop Top and the Black Lace Mid Calf Leggings.

The tank top is from City Chic. While they don’t have it in the color I have on, they do have them in several other colors. It is their Ballerina Cami.

The skirt came from a outlet and it doesn’t have a brand tag in it.

 

Day 3

Look For Day 3 of All Dress April

The dress is from ModCloth , they no longer have it but it could possibly pop up in another pattern or you might find it on ebay. Its the Ride Here, Ride Now Dress in Cats.

The cardigan is from Torrid. No longer available, nor is there anything similar at the moment.

 

Day 4

Look for Day 4 of All Dress April

Both the skirt and top were bought at a place called Burkes Outlet. While they do carry some name brands and the occasional designer piece in their plus size section, these two items don’t really have a name anyone would really recognize on them. But if you have never shopped there, they are definitely worth checking out.

 

Day 5

Look For Day 5 of All Dress April

This dress is from Simply Be. It is their Simply Be Paisley Print Maxi Dress.

 

Day 6

Look For Day 6 Of All Dress April

The Top is Cythia Rowley.

The skirt is Kim Rogers.

Both are from a couple of years ago and no longer available.

 

Day 7

I am sorry to say, I do not have a picture for day seven. I will have a few days here and there that I am just not able to participate, and day 7 was one of those for me.

 

You can also follow along with these looks and other peoples looks on various social media platforms by looking for the hashtag #AllDressApril . If you are participating, I would love to see your looks to. I try to follow along as much as possible, but if you are a reader make sure you leave where you are posting your pics and your user name, and I will make sure to take a look.

All Dress April

12938326_10100392683521412_5163653629107190284_n

Today kicks off the All Dress April Style Challenge. I will be participating in this along with other bloggers and various other women who just love fashion that were invited to participate. Some people will be participating daily, and others like me, will be participating as much as possible. Unfortunately life doesn’t allow some of us to dress up on the daily, no matter how much we might like to.

Both dresses and skirts are accepted in the challenge. Women of all shapes and sizes will be participating. All types of styles will be showcased. If you would like to look for style inspiration or just see what people are wearing, looks will be tagged on social media as #AllDressApril

Is anyone else participating? I would to hear from you if you are. Have you done a similar challenge before?
