Warrior Weave Clovers

clover canyon

This is my first go trying one of the Clover Canyon scuba dresses and I am in pseudo-love. What's to love? The prints! And how the scuba knit kind of sucks everything in and gives you curves where there used to just be lumps. What's not-so-much? Well the price ... and how the scuba knit does feel weirdly wet-suit-stuck-to-your-skin-ish.

I was also a bit uncertain about the sizing since I heard they ran small - sometimes - and I wanted to this piece to be work-appropriate so I ordered a size M. I'm normally a size 2/2P/4P dependent on the brand so likely the S would have worked but I was concerned that it would have stuck to my curves more than I would have liked. So the M fits great and I don't think it's too va-va-voom for the office but the fabric tends to ride up a bit at the waist ... likely a problem I wouldn't have had if I had gone for the S and it was a big more figure-hugging.

So I'm not sure. Am I just trying to make a not-really-fit-for-a-business-casual-environment piece work or should I get the smaller size and relegate this piece to dinners out and days when I'm feeling extra confident and want to werk it? Or stop being so darn conservative and wear it proud ... #newdressproblems ...

Colorblock with Camel

colorblock stripes

When I first purchased this dress, I thought it would be an easy piece for me to ride out the remainder of summer in, considering it feels like I'm wearing pajamas out. But now that I tried layering a striped tee under the dress? It has totally changed the piece for me. Prepare to see this piece take me well within the SE fall ...
