BCBGMaxazria Short Ruffle Dress in Blue Sapphire

My search for a great dress for a wedding continues. Haute Look (referal, cashback) had a BCBGMaxazria sale, I had my eye on this Blue Ruffle Dress. The front is very flirty with the ruffles but the back is left bare which gives the dress a major WOW factor.

Unfortunately, on me, the WOW factor was diminished. I don’t know why but the dress made me look a lot wider from the backside. The pictures showed that I have a slight hunchback for some reason. Could it be the angle and lighting?

I was determined to keep the dress so I corralled my husband into taking this next set of pictures.

It was a lot better, but the pictures still showed that it was not a good dress for my body. The ruffles at my hips made me look a lot wider. Furthermore, the placement of that black strip against my back is too high up. It cut up my body from the back making me look short. I want a dress to elongate my body not splice it up.

It was a fun dress to consider. Sorry I had to return it.

Crave: Polka Polka Dots Please

I was not thinking of polka dots this season until I was perusing Piperlime.com. Under Presents for Her, I zoned in a perfect little party dress from a designer that I have always love: BCBGeneration. And then what do you know: I was seeing polka dots everywhere. From LC Lauren Conrad, Urbanoutfitters, asos.com and zara.com.

Here are some wishlist items for Christmas (My husband is going to go ballastic over this year’s credit card bills):
