Happy Monday! I’m off Thursday and Friday so I’m excited for this short week. I have a pool party on the fourth. Do you guys have any plans?
I’ve been looking for a pretty slip dress since last year. There’s tons out there but I had several requirements, as far as fabric, cut, length and most of all price.
These dresses are so simple, if the material is a shiny polyester blend, the dress can easily look cheap. I got one under $30 on Amazon and it looked really cheap, so I knew I wanted silk. I am curvy so a short slip dresses can easily look inappropriate on me, but I knew I didn’t want a midi or long dress. I don’t want it to look like I’m wearing a night gown or overly dressy. A lot of slip dress are cut straight, I wanted mine to be taken in at the waist so that I don’t look like I’m wearing a sack. All these are easy to find but finding all these requirements at the right price is not so easy. Here are a few options I looked at.
I then found Silk Laundry on instagram and this pic convinced me I found the perfect slip dress and thankfully it was $123, a price point I was comfortable with. I was apprehensive because shipping was kinda expensive and this is a brand I wasn’t familiar with but I went for it. I’m usually a medium but decided to go with a large, it’s slightly oversize but it’s still perfect on, I don’t want that type of dress to be clingy on me.
I loved my black slip dress so much that a couple weeks ago I got this print as well, I was looking at the ones below as well but ultimately went with the other. I’ve done all he research for you, if you are looking for a classic simple slip dress, trust me this is a good one.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great Monday!
