Alice & Olivia is responsible for so much of my style inspiration! Her fabrics and designs are so feminine and fun, I love shopping her boutique. Lately I’ve been buying anything and everything I love no matter the fit & making simple adjustments in alterations to create the perfect fit for my body. Why miss out on amazing patterns and dresses just because they don’t fit the way you’d like them to?
While most of her pieces fit me, all maxi dresses in general tend to be too long (I’m 5’2″). This dress included. I wanted to be able to wear it with sandals so the hem needed to be brought up, the plunging neckline was too deep and due to my growing bust (among other parts while 7.5 months Pregnant) I couldn’t button the back, but thanks to an AMAZING seamstress who I visit regularly, it looks like the dress was made for me 🙂
Just a little nip tuck was all it needed and voilà! Did I mention I bought the dress half off from Saks Off Saks!? So worth it. The dress makes me feel like I’m on a safari. It’s the perfect summer dress, so feminine and flirty in silk and transitional from daytime poolside to sunset at cocktail hour.
