Not a flattering title, is it. Nope. And quite frankly, not a flattering name for a dress, right?
|Cracking up at my hubby's antics.|
It's not what I'd call my dress since I rather like to call it a maxi dress, but it's undeniably similar to a muu muu. (Is that even how you spell it?)
I found this gem (at least I think it is) in Stanley Market, in one of my favorite stores to go thrifting. At the big Sun and Moon. The hubby and I both love popping in there to see what new shipment of surplus goodies they've delivered. And with the exception of one sleeve-length mishap (a hilarious story), I've always found amazing, even name brand items.
This dress intrigued me when I first saw it because of it's length. I really love flowy long dresses. Secondly, I admired the two different fabric choices (grosgrain ribbon for the straps contrasting the fabric of the dress).
But the kicker, my major weakness in trying on dresses, came when I reached along the sides and there were pockets. Sold! Try to forget that I think I actually look preggers in some of these shots. I really like this dress and that's all that matters, I guess. And, I didn't get too many looks when I wore it on Monday.
In other exciting news, the Topshop HK fashion truck made a stop at my school today. What a thrill to have it make an appearance here. The big girl and I stopped in and got some fun goodies.
Have a peek on my Instagram @imanorbyah to see the Topshop HK fuss at our school and the fun Ella had with her free gift.
