Spring Flings

Partnering up with Trixxi again on SS.  Feeling super summery with this fab floral number.  This adorable piece is currently on sale HERE at Kohl's for $21.99 (originally $48).  FYI:  also available in navy w/ white & pink flowers if you prefer that over my periwinkle version.

Y'all know how much I love skater silhouettes.  They're super comfy yet form flattering.  This piece features an elastic band that highlights the small of one's waist, creating the illusion of an hourglass figure.  Let's get to the nitty gritty: 

Fabric: polyester/spandex blend
Care: machine wash so...super easy, ha
Quality: comparable to Banana Factory Outlet clothing
Perfect for: everyday wear, brunch, lunch dates, church
Vibe: girly, playful, flirty
Length: 34-in. from shoulder to hem
Bag:  Deb Shops (similar)
Dress:  c/o Trixxi (on sale for $21.99 - originally $48)
Cardigan: JYJZ (similar)
Necklace:  c/o Hanuel
Shoes:  Kate Spade (similar)

I styled the piece with a crochet cardi because I wanted to cover my shoulders - hey, AC's cold yo - and threw on a beachy starfish statement necklace and called it a day.  TIP: nude pumps elongate your legs like whoa and they (obviously) match everything!
Oh, and in case you're not a fan of this particular number, here are other adorable floral dresses for y'all (all under $50 of course):

Elite99: Swing Dress Review

It's Fri-YAY! Time for another dress review.  I'll be telling you guys all about an adorable swing dress (courtesy of Elite99) today on SS.  FYI: I've worked with them in the past; way back in the day. I didn't have a great experience back then, but thankfully they've stepped up their game.

This trendy dress is cute - think Wet Seal quality - but I feel like it'd look way better on someone skinnier because it's so voluminous.  Belting it would help, but I left it as is because I wanted to show y'all the natural silhouette.  I'm actually a huge fan of pleated pieces! I actually just bought a pleated maxi skirt at Charlotte Russe.  It was on sale for like $3 - thank you memorial day sales, ha.

TIP: When shopping Elite 99's online collection, pay CLOSE attention to measurements.  Items usually run small - asian sizes and US sizes are VERY different.  I remember my first time ordering stuffs from an Asian wholesaler - it was ridiculous.  I bought a pair of leggings (size small), and I couldn't even pull them up past my calves, ha.  I remember thinking, "WTF, how can a human being wear such a small size?"  Ha!  In all seriousness though, they do carry cute stuff!  You just have to be smart about it all.  It also helps that shipping's free.  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns below.
Details, details, details...
