Hey all! This little body-con dress is one of my latest creations. I’ve wanted to make a fitted dress for a while now and I finally did it in time for a trip down south to St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.
St. Thomas was really nice. Calm, really. We took a trip through the mountains, went to cool banana daiquiri bar and even saw a donkey with sunglasses! I also bought this cute little gold clutch from a shop in the mountains:
You can’t fit much into it…my phone, a card or two and a lipstick. That’s it! But really does look good with everything. Plus, it was only $9.00, so you can’t go wrong!
Anyways, back to the outfit.
I decided to wear this dress for the day because I wanted to wear something out and about other than shorts & a tee. Plus, I wanted to be cute (haha!) so I thought this would be perfect.
The fabric is great – it’s incredibly lightweight and can fold up so small that it takes up no room at all in my suitcase.
I’m also in awe over the pattern on the fabric. See, I had an image in my head of what I wanted and it just happened to be at Fabricland. That never happens! Talk about manifestation. I also loved that I was able to wear my swimsuit underneath and it barely showed because the pattern hid the bikini strings. #EvenBetter
I thought that after wearing it all day in the hot sun I would have regretted not wearing shorts, but nope, not the case! I really loved the fit, the colour, the feel of the fabric.
But most importantly, I felt pretty damn confident in it. Ain’t that all you need anyways?
