Outfit: Navy Blazer and Floral Dress

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Happy Monday lovers! Quick post today because I had a late night. Went to a "fashion show" with my homegirl and let's just say it was interesting to say the least. Will I be posting pics....ummmm no. But I will post pics of what I wore. It's a darn shame when you don't even feel like pulling out your camera at a fashion event. SMH.

Well last Sunday I stepped into church with my new, OVERSIZED heels I purchased in my whirlwind internet shopping spree a couple of weeks ago. I hate when I get my size and the shoes are way too big. I can understand a little room here and there, but a whole size too large.....that ish cray!



Here are the lovely culprits!!! If you look closely, you can see a little gap between my heel and the back of the shoe. Good grief!





Oh yea.....I did in fact iron that dress before I left home. Those creases are purely "sit down" creases, lol.




I try to always test drive my shoes by wearing them to church, or a trip to the grocery store. Yea....not sure I chose the grocery store either as my testing center, lol.





They are super sexy in a classic sort of way. I think I really liked the navy blue and gold combo. HOT! But I  did feel that it was my duty as a fashionista to write an honest review about the 'fit'. Reviews come in handy so you guys should really make sure you write one. If you already do...great!





This "little" dress will not be worn to church again. I felt so super conscious of its short hemline all service. Neva again!!!

I love the "sit down creases"! I'm sad the fashion show was whack. Anyhow I wanted you to know that you have motivated me to buy more dresses and shorter ones at that!

Cute shoes!! Love the height and the color. I know what you mean about having the gap in the back of the shoe. It's always an issue for me if a style does not have a wide width and I have to go a half size up to make up for it.

You should invest in a prayer cloth for those boarderline dresses/skirts for church. It's saved me in a few cases. As my Grandma would say, "Gurl, you better cover those gams!! lol

Love the style and color of the shoe. I am always afraid of purchasing shoes & clothing online unless it's a brand I'm familiar with. I was wondering about that hemline in church.

Miss Dre said...

GIRL!!! You are rocking that floral print, hunni! I love the dress and the shoes! I wouldn't even have noticed the gap if you wouldn't have mentioned it lol. And I totally agree that it helps to write reviews when purchasing products online. I often look to the reviews before making my decision on purchasing and always give an honest review as well.
