Two outfit posts in one week? Watch out!
I bought this dress in Vegas. They have two Bettie Page stores on the strip. This is always a bad thing for me, because 1) their dresses are fairly expensive and 2) their dresses are sized up (down?) like crazy! I normally wear a 2x or 22, at Bettie Page I often don't fit in their biggest size of a 4x. This usually means I get really depressed if everything I love doesn't fit. This is pretty much true for every reproduction brand.
This dress though? It was made for me! The high waist, pleating to a full skirt, and the neck line are all perfect for my body type. Full skirts are a must for my big ole hips. It's really important for me to know what styles fit my body best when I'm shopping. This saves me lot of time when I'm in the Bettie Page store especially (remember sizing issues). I cannot wear a wiggle dress to save my life! So I just pass those up no matter how much I'm drawn to them. Trying them on just makes me sad.
Oh and the best thing about this dress?!
