There is nothing more amazing than finding that one perfect dress. Here are my reasons:
- It flatters( meaning your best features are highlighted and loved)
- It fits( you feel you best in it, not too tight or too loose)
- Its fairly, inexpensive( right on the money, honey!)
Now, let me tell you the tale of how I found this haute dress.
It was a mild day in December, unusually warm for this time of the year, when I walked into the majestic of all majestic discount stores, Nordstrom’s Rack.
I was seeking out a stylish, yet fun dress to wear for upcoming holiday parties I planned on attending. I wasn’t having much luck. I was coming across every “toad”-like thing possible in the store.
I spotted IT! On the designer rack of the store, the colorful tulle dress in my size, on sale! I snatched it up as quick as I could. Ran to the dressing room, and was stunned at how well it fit. It really exceeded my expectations.
So, lets talk about this dress.
First, its a Jean Paul Gaultier. Gaultier is an eclectic, French, fashion designer who brings quality and quirkiness into all of his designs. The dress embodies that exact school of thought, but in a slightly conservative sense.
It is screen-printed, tulle dress with an asymmetrical bottom, long sleeves and a turtle neck collar. You would think this piece would be slightly see through, however that was not the case. But, since it was cold I did cover up my legs with some thigh high hosiery and sleek black boots to keep this look artsy, sexy, and fun.
This HTWITW look is a hit for any winter “day party” in Bronzeville or Sunday brunch with friends in the Gold Coast. I added a little bit more regality to the look with an all pearl combination of earrings, necklace, and bangles. The look can be a little more casual, for a chill night out in Logan Square, if it is layered with leggings, combat boots, and an oversized bomber jacket for a hip “whatever” type of look.
This is my tale of the tulle dress.
Now fellow seekers, share you thoughts!
How would your wear it?
