Holy Cross

My boyfriend got me a ModCloth gift card for my birthday. I bought this dreamy dress that I'm wearing in these photos, but unfortunately, it was very poorly made. This dress is so huge in the bust, itty bitty in the waist, cheap zipper, and it bunches in the back. One of these issues would be tolerable, but all of them? Nope.I tried really hard to get past all the flaws, but for $60, it should be perfect. I sadly had to return it. We had a good couple hours together, though.

This weekend was jam packed with friends, brunches, pastries, not enough coffee, and sleeping past eight. Which is a huge deal for me because I am the earliest of early risers.




Outfit Details:
Dress: ModCloth
Shoes: Thrifted
Belt: Swapped
Necklace: Onenecklace
Headband:

  2. It is a lovely print and you look nice in it. But it is such a bummer when a dress can look nice but not fit well!

  5. Very, very good boyfriend! :) What a thoughtful present - I always love it when my DH gives me gift certificates for special occasions. There's a lot to be said for someone knowing your tastes, but still letting you decide precisely what you want.

    I'm sorry that this dress had so many issues. :( That's rough! Fingers crossed that whatever you select in place of it will work out worlds better for you.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  8. Beautiful print, it's too bad that the dress didn't fit quite right. I hope you end up with something that works a little bit better for you.

  10. Ugh, that's so disappointing! Such a cute dress, but I agree - for $60 it should be MUCH better quality!

  15. Boyfriend got you a Modcloth card?! Keep him. Hee hee. But I'm sorry you couldn't keep the dress--shame since it's so cute! Ah well. Hopefully you can get something better. <3

    Also, your advice on my last post was so nice to hear--I think that's exactly what I'll do: work my butt off and hope to make some kind of name for myself, and just see where it goes (if it even goes!). You're so, so lovely!

  16. Aw man, that's too bad about this dress! At least you memorialized it with these photos though. Hopefully you got something even better!

    Oh, and I know I'm super late in getting around to commenting, but in response to your question on whether I'm an art student - I am! :D Haha, I'm majoring in Graphic Design currently but I got my Associates in Visual Arts last year. Whoooooo. Art vibes yo

  18. That's a shame your dress doesn't fit right, it's always a gamble when you buy things online. At least it looks super cute though! :)
