Here Comes The Showstopper!

July 12, 2017

Oh, my days! I am just going to cut to the chase today; there is no need for small talk!  I have some news to share- I am head over heels in love…with a dress! Yes, you read that right- I am in love with a dress. Have you ever had a clothing piece that you couldn’t get enough of? That would be my current situation with this fabulous dress from Slaytique! I  take this dress, to be my lawfully appointed style favorite,  to don and to slay for as long as I possibly can.

First of all, I don’t think I need to reiterate my stand on all things ruffles. This must be obvious to you by now. (lol) My posts in the past few months have been an ode to my ruffles obsession. So, imagine my level of excitement when I laid eyes on this blush-colored beauty of a dress, that not only has ruffle details on the top but on the bottom as well! Ah! Let the ruffle mania continue! I immediately felt like going salsa dancing when I slithered into the dress. The ruffles give off a fun, flirty vibe that I absolutely love. Also, the ruffle details serve as an optical illusion by making your waist appear smaller. I think it’s safe to say that an hourglass shape is coveted by most of us, right ladies?  This dress will help you accomplish that.

The fabric was also a major selling point for me. Prior to receiving the dress, while on the Slaytique website, I could tell, just by observing how the dress hung on the model on the website, that the fabric was high quality.  Upon receipt of my order, my presumption was confirmed.  The dress was just as well made as it appeared to be in the pictures on the website. It’s made from a sturdy fabric; therefore, you don’t have to worry about wearing a slip inside, as it is not see-through.  I would, however, recommend wearing a body shaper within, for a smoother silhouette, as this is a figure hugging dress. Let me add that it hugs your curves without being constricting- that’s a score in my books.

This dress gives me a retro, high society lady vibe. It’s definitely one I could have worn to my recent High Tea experience. Who knows, I may wear it the next time I have High Tea again. It is a definitely a showstopper dress that is guaranteed to make several heads turn to take a second or tenth look. If you love being the center of attention, this beauty is definitely for you.

Where can you wear this dress to, you ask? I’d say you can wear it to any fancy event, e.g. to a wedding, to an evening party, to a bridal shower, to a dinner date…Your options are limitless. As far as footwear is concerned, this is a heels only dress. You wouldn’t wear sneakers with an evening gown, would you? Well, the same applies to this dress. I chose to style it with a pair of sky-high ochre heels this time around. Given the already attention-grabbing nature of this frock, I kept my accessories simple, opting for a classic gold watch. To complete the look, I stuffed all my essentials into a purple clutch purse. It’s an easy look to put together, wouldn’t you agree?

I am so impressed by the wide selection of high-quality, stylish pieces they have on sale.  In the past,  I had my fair share of shopping experiences marred by bogus claims and overall false advertising at other online stores. I can say beyond a reasonable doubt that Slaytique is not one of those shady stores. You’re guaranteed a seamless shopping experience and satisfaction with your order. I can almost guarantee you will be marching back to the website to order more items, upon receipt of your initial order. True story!Did I mention that as my friend, you will get 15% off your entire order when you use the code SLAYJOY at checkout? Well, I just did!  Enjoy your shopping spree!

Caution: The probability of you buying every single item on the Slaytique website is 99.9%. You will be spoiled for choice- I kid you not!
