THE HUNT IS STILL ON!
I found and bought this one today- but now that I've tried it on and taken pictures at home for you- I feel like it's just "Meh". Should I keep looking? This one was fairly reasonable in price and I liked the neckline at the store, plus my hips look way smaller in this one. My arms are looking not great though, part of the problem could be the should pads. Yes, it's black. I found and tried on 2 red dresses but the material was so thin on one that you could see my underwear line, and the 2nd one wasn't a good red- it was tomatoey/orange ish and didn't look good with my skin tone. NO thank you!
I will be hunting for shoes and jewels tomorrow. Should I keep looking at dresses? This one has shoulder pads and I feel like it's making the top of me look bigger...plus I feel like it's kind of blah/boring. Def not "Wow" factor to me- it was a last minute purchase but could be great in the future if I have an emergency.
Thank you guys for your help. If you are trying to help me- BE HONEST! I'd rather try to fix it now while I still have time- if you think I should keep looking (maybe for red?)
I am happy to report that this dress is a size 6- down from a size 8 (that I normally wear). I'm still not thrilled with myself- but things are getting smaller! Took some measurements just to be sure and yah- things are on their way down. :)
I tried to get the neckline/rouching in this one for you guys- but it's hard to see.
What say ye?
