When I first saw this dress on the rack, I thought “Whoa! What are you? Why are you so ugly?” and I knew I had to try it on. I have affinity to try on seemingly ugly things and then loving them. That’s when I know I should buy them. It’s the pretty things that give me mixed emotions and the most heartache. Should I buy them, should I not? Do I REALLY like it or is it just cute? Would I be willing to spend this much, is it timeless, don’t I already have lots of these? Wah.

And so, I love this dress and it’s a keeper. The paperbag feel of the skirt is fantastic; it gives the bubble shape it’s volume and maintains it’s form. But the VOLUME! It’s all about the volume. The platforms I’m wearing are 4″ high and worked so well with this dress. I feel absolutely unstoppable strutting around campus in them.

It’s getting slightly chilly now, so this was tricky to wear since it’s actually sleeveless. This is the best I could come up with for now. The only thing I regret is that I don’t have a big enough statement necklace! Need more sparkley, more shiney! I’ll be writing a “how to wear bubble skirts” post this weekend
