Polka Dots!

So I think its pretty evident I've gone a little mad lately with the dress buying. I've gained a lot of weight in the past year and honestly I was having trouble fitting into most of my old clothes. It was depressing and irritating, I was feeling very down about going out anywhere because I was stuck wearing the same 3 or 4 dresses all the time. So I decided to buy myself a bunch of new stuff and it has been slowly trickling in via mail from near and far.

I ordered this dress probably about a month ago, it came from Hong Kong so it took awhile to get here. I was a little concerned about buying a cheap dress from an unknown source, but was so cheap ($15 delivered from Ebay) I figured it was worth the risk. And boy did it pay off! The fabric is a lot more sheer than I expected and I need a slip in order to prevent my underwear being seen, but that's alright. Its really stretchy and comfortable, and reasonably forgiving of my lumps and bumps even though the fabric is very thin and clingy. You can't see the hem in the picture (sorry!) but it hits an inch or two below the knee, which is a great length for me. It swings and floats when I walk and flutters in the breeze, all of which make me feel just a wee bit princessy ^_^ I'm really happy with it.


  1. I've ordered a few things from China (via ebay) before........never had a bad experience.
    Your dress is lovely dear - it's always nice to find bargains too.

    1. Thanks :) It is great finding bargains, and I'm so cheap when it comes to spending money on clothes that it kind of has to be a bargain for me to buy it. I'm glad it worked out. Will make be braver about buying things in the future lol.

  2. This dress is so pretty and it looks wonderful on you! I've ordered stuff from China on eBay many, many times. It's always been really nice, but it does take forever to arrive. But China IS on the other side of the world!

    1. Thank you muchly ^_^ I order stuff online all the time but I'm always terrified they won't fit me. You can much up your measurements as best you can, but not all people carry their weight the same, so you never know if its going to be too tight somewhere and too loose somewhere else or something like that. I've got a few dresses coming from Modcloth (first time ordering from them) and I'm so nervous about them lol. I hope they all fit!


I really enjoy reading comments and am more than happy to answer any questions you might have, so don't be shy! :)
