FATSHION FACEOFF: BODYCON DRESS

Hi there!  It's Wednesday and you know its time for the Fatshion Faceoff, right?  (Or if you're a first-timer that stumbled here via whoknowswhere, click here to find out what the Fatshion Faceoff is all about!)  Anyway, this week's challenge item was chosen by Olivia and she picked... a bodycon dress!  I have a kind of fancy one hanging in my closet that Hanna helped me get from New Look.  She has the same one and I LOVE it, but it was sold out online in my size.  Being an awesome friend, she went to the store and scooped one up for me.  (Thank you again, Hanna!)  Problem is, I don't wear it often enough (even though it's amazing), so I decided to wear it for the FF and style it somewhat casually for the transitional fall weather.  







dress (similar), UK18 - New Look | denim vest (similar), XL - thrifted & diy'd | booties (similar), US9.5 - TJMaxx  
bag Forever21 | assorted bracelets (here, similar, similar) Forever21

I think pairing this dress with boots and a cutoff vest strikes a nice balance between girly and tough.  It was certainly great for the somewhat warm but slightly breezy weather we've been having the past couple of days!  I really wish the cold would just come to stay for realsies, though.  A couple of cool days here and there are just a tease, lol.  Anyway, how do you toughen up your girly pieces?

Now that you've seen my Fatshion Faceoff, make sure to visit the other girls' blogs to see what they did this week!  I'm wondering if Hanna is wearing the same dress as me this week..  Only one way to find out!  :D

  8. The print, the spiky bracelet—I can't handle the wonderful! I don't temper my girly pieces as well as you do, but maybe I ought to get a bit more creative! I always need more reasons for unreasonably spiky clothing.
