Seersucker and Seagulls

Thursday, June 01, 2017

I'm back at it with a fashion post with one of my favorite trends: backless mini dresses. I'll admit, it's been a hot minute since I've done a fashion post.  With not having my boyfriend around to take photos when I needed, it's been difficult (bless him; he's a saint).  Instead I've been asking my mom if she could help me out. Between the rain though and our contrasting schedules, it's been quite the challenge. So let's just say this post has been long over due!


What drew my to this seersucker dress was the criss-cross back. I always think that backless dress like these are not only cute but super sexy. I'm drawn to dresses like these for the summer. They look super cute for weddings, barbeques, a day at the beach etc. I've never really tried out this style of dress before because I wasn't comfortable with going braless. I'm one of those weird girls that actually likes wearing bras....I know call me insane! Since I am quite petite, especially on top, a bra just fills me out and makes clothes just sit better versus if I were to go with out one. So that is why for the longest time, I've steered away from backless dresses. 

I finally just got over the fact that I don't have humongous boobs and decided to just add a backless dress to my wardrobe. I still was not fond of having my nips out there so I decided to invest in "sticky boobs". They don't give me the greatest lift/shape but definitely makes a difference. I'm telling you girls, a silicone/sticky bra is a must for summer, as well as a nude strapless bra. You're going to be wanting to wear all sorts of light airy fabrics, as well as white dresses, so make sure you invest in a good one. If you're not the kind of girl that likes to shop at Victoria's Secret, Thirdlove is a brand you should check out. What I love about them is that they offer half sizes. Let me tell you that's the greatest invention ever! I myself am too big for an A, but sometimes have gaping in a B cup. So praise the Lord that half sizes exist lol. Thirdlove also has the essential nude bra I was talking about.

Sorry to get on a bra tangent, but I think it's super important that you ladies have your bra wardrobe up to par! 

This striped dress comes with a ribbon that you're actually supposed to tie between the crisscross straps to make a bow in the back. I'm not quite that skilled at making a perfect bow so I wanted to knot it around my waist. Us petite women need to take any measures to make us look taller.  

Since I talked about bras, belts, and dresses, I might as well make it full circle and talk about my wedges right!? When I was in junior high/ high school, practically everyone wore wedges over heels. I was the odd one out and though stilettos were the sexiest thing. Then when I saw how cute they looked with sun dresses, I had to invest in my own. I've had these ivory babies since my senior year of high school. I'm now a senior in college. So as you can imagine they've been through some damage. I think I'm growing out of wedges though. I just think they look clunky with my slender legs. With jeans I think they look fine, but with dresses, I think I prefer heels. That's just my opinion. Oh and my boyfriend hates the way wedges look. So that might have a thing to do with my change in preference lol.
