Watermelon + DresseStylist Review
______I'm bringing you guys yet another fabulous and fanciful frock courtesy of DresseStylist--and my gosh, is it lovely as ever! This dress fits perfectly in the waist so it can support what barely-there-boobies I have, and it stays up no matter how much I jump up and down and all around. I love it when a dress is snug enough that it stays up on it's own, but isn't constraining to the point where it affects the way you breathe or how much you can eat.
______Thankfully, my breathing isn't inhibited in this dress and I'm able to devour more than one pea without exploding out of it. I tested the hypothesis myself, and I can eat up to a grand total of four and a half peas.
______The quality is super duper nice, and I especially adore how the interior is lined in silk and how the skirt is so full and twirly. Something about wearing a dress that ebbs and flows so smoothly when you move sure puts some regal swag in your step, doesn't it? And man, this dress is full of regal swag. So much swishing and flipping!
______The coral color is perfect as we transition into warmer weather, and the chiffon is so breezy and ethereal and makes me feel like a gossamer jellyfish undulating on the tides of life. I'm usually not one to paint myself pretty in pastels, so I'm really liking how this shade of coral-pink is nearly neon. The color is reminiscent of watermelon, though this dress is not nearly as edible as one. I don't think most dresses are edible, though. Not in my part of town. Strip clubs... now that's a whole different topic.
______I hope you guys are having a rad-tastical end of the week. I know I am because my dearest dad is finally home after a lengthy two-week trip up north. He drove a hearty thirty hours from Alabama to North Dakota to see his father before he passed away at the ripe age of 81. I'm just rather relieved that he's coping well over his father's death, and even more glad that he's finally back home. Now that my dad has returned, the manliness radiating from his mighty mustache will hopefully scare away any those monsters and bugs that decided they could settle in the dark crevices of our home while he was away.
