I got the always-exciting PACKAGE NOTIFICATION email this morning, ran down to the mailroom, and immediately opened it to try it on. My first impressions were that the colors were nice, but I had no idea what it was. Upon lifting it out of the package, I saw a long rectangle with sleeves that promised to be unattractive, but of course I had to try it on anyway.
It turned out to have a short skirt with a long overskirt, a drawstring waist, and pin-up sleeves, all of which helped the shape of it immensely! It also goes nearly perfectly with my dark red heels.
Needless to say, I was quite curious about what this dress was originally intended for a priced at. Enter the wonderful ModStylists! A few quick emails and I had all the information and styling suggestions I needed:
This would not have been something I ever would have picked out for myself, especially for almost $70, but it is a quirky, unique piece so I'm quite pleased with the $15 purchase. Now I just have to work up the courage to rock this ensemble outside the dorm room :)
