Things are not always what they seem, in life, and especially on the internet! When you do a lot of online shopping you sometimes find this to be painfully true. It doesn't necessarily mean you are disappointed, but the item you just ordered isn't exactly as pictured or as you imagined it to be. The only challenge I had with this dress for example, was the fact that it's super sheer and you could not tell that from the photos, which were taken in a studio. In broad daylight this becomes very apparent, and unfortunately I chose the wrong slip to wear underneath it. But still, I am happy with my choice, and will wear it better next time. Hopefully by then I will lose that bit of tummy fat that still clings to me (I am secretly hoping it's in fact just excess skin from my pregnancy and hopefully it will shrink back to normal soon). I really loved the design of the dress, especially the split back. It can be easily dressed up for the office, like I did here, or dressed down with flat ankle boots or sneakers and a leather jacket for running errands. I always look for versatility in each new piece I acquire. We're not movie stars who can afford to wear everything only once, right?
