In the last blog post, I talked about the versatility of having a simple little black dress on your wardrobe. Also, I mentioned that now I’m investing more in black outfits.
Coincidentally, most of the time that I wore black I was a bit overweight, so I guess black outfits does make you look slim. The problem is: I don’t have any pictures from that time I was wearing these clothes, hummmm.
I think I know why. No, no, no I don't think, I'm pretty much sure why I don't have pictures of those extra pounds occasions. And at this point I have the sense that you know the reason too.
Okay!! So let's go to the point where, why I'm writing this blog post, the little black dress story/series.
I'm starting with the one I wore at a Christmas party in December 2016. My baby was four months old, I still carrying some pregnancy weight and was nursing. So let us say that the breast area was a little bit bigger then the regular days before baby.:D
Going back to the black dress story…. At that time I probably was weighing around 135 lbs, and no one of my dresses that I had wasn't fitting me nice, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money in clothes that I will be using one time, I say once because my intention was to go back to my regular size 4/6.
I didn't want to get out of the house for shopping, so I went shopping on one of my favorite online store, Amazon! Who doesn't like to shop on Amazon?? Special when you are coop at home with a little baby.
I don't’ remember buying clothes in this specific online place for myself before. I probably ordered 10 dresses in different sizes and styles, to make sure at least one could fit me right, the party was one week away from that day.
Sincerely, I kind worried a bit about the quality of those dresses they were pretty much cheap.
For my surprise, the quality wasn't too bad, and they were pretty. The dress size 12 fitted me nicely(this dress size run small), it was simple, elegant and flattering and did make me look thin and tall, of course, I had a little help from my 5"in hell.
Thought it was too long, I had to shorten it 12 inches, and I changed the style a bit. I got very excited about making the adjustments that by the end I had a different dress, I made it a high low dress.
I got a lot of compliments that night, no one could believe a just had a baby, and I'm sure no one could guess that it was a under $100,00 from amazon store.
I know I wore this dress for a second time, but I can't remember where, I do remember paring it with gold accessories. I thought the combination of black and gold went very well and gave the simple little black dress a new look.
So look for all them and transform that simple black dress in a stylish, unique outfit, and show your gorgeousness.
