This dress has been on my wish list for soo long! I’m so glad I finally got it, even at full price. Leith’s prices are already very affordable so their pieces don’t always go on sale (which is when I normally pull the trigger). Oh wellsies, still worth it!
I have -and love – 4 other pieces from the brand and I’m sure that number will continue to grow. Check out this stunning satin maxi and this velour slip dress from Leith that I spotted on the Nordstrom Rack site.
What steals! I’ve made a commitment to myself to stop buying formal stuff until I have a specific occasion for it, otherwise I would so buy that satin maxi. Isn’t it gorg?? FYI this brand’s clothes tend to run a little large so I’m wearing a M.
You can never have too many good basics. This dress doesn’t require a strapless bra (hallelujah!) and it’s insanely comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle, and it’s very flattering/forgiving. Yes please!
Tip: Kimonos can be super flattering and sexy or they can be completely unflattering. The difference is and how it hangs on your body.
You want to avoid pulling it over your bust as this creates an overall round shape. My go to is to just let it hang right from the armpit. Sounds so sexy, right?
I really like how the curved hem of the dress adds to the flattering-factor of this dress and gives just a bit more coverage. Although I’d still suggest some bloomers or boyshorts underneath to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. Trust me on this one 😉
I really had no idea how much I’d wear these heels when I first got them, but man have they become a staple for me. This has just reinforced my belief that you MUST try shoes on.
I’ve had more occasions than I’d like to admit where I bought some pretty shoes online, only to be vastly disappointed when they didn’t fit quite right or were just too painful to be a realistic option. Boo!
Full disclose: these push that line (of comfort) but they’re sooo good!
See ya later party people!
