Summer Dress Round Up with Their Funny Stories
which Dina has on here) - which I tried and immediately returned because the colors were just horrid with my skin tone. As soon as I saw this at Loft I grabbed it...fortunately, I was shopping during a 40% off sale.
I got an 8, and it had plenty of room. It's definitely not fitted - very flowy and breezy, but it shows of a lot of arm and leg to counter-balance the lack of shape. I love the linen fabric. Not see through, not stiff. The only downside, if I could come up with one would be that it really requires a strapless bra. But for this dress, it's worth it.
Funny story on this dress: A few weeks after I had purchased it, my mom and I were at Loft (30% off or something, probably) and I had pulled a few dresses into the dressing room to try on. While I was doing that, my mom came back with this dress in hand and said: Did you see this one? It just looks like you." And I said: you're absolutely right, and that's why it's already hanging in my closet. So clearly my mom knows my taste...one of the many reasons I love shopping with her.
Polyvore of Loft Medallion Shift Dress:
What's not to love on this one... Great shade of gray. Beautiful draping. Lovely empire waist. I took an M in the dress, and it fit perfectly. The fabric is mostly synthetic, if I recall, but it still breathes. This was a hot, steamy day staple in my wardrobe this summer. Wore it tons.
Polyvore of Empire Tank Dress:
I may have a post or two more on summer left, but I'll be switching to fall really soon, I swear.
