I don’t think this is a new fact, but – I LOVE OCTOBER! I feel like a kid before Christmas. The excitement, the suspense, the DECORATIONS! I also love the decorations when they’re on my body, as you can see for yourself below.
This little betty here is the Wednesday dress from Domino Dollhouse. I’m going to have to be honest, this dress and I have had a bit of a sordid past:
1. I saw it, I wanted it badly, yet I denied myself.
2. A lovely lady on Aussie Curves declared she had accidentally ordered the wrong size of the dress and was devastated because by the time she got it and realised, it had sold out. She ended up with my size!
3. I met said lovely lady on a street corner in Melbourne CBD and exchanged cash for dress.
4. I was delighted.
5. I tried the dress on (my first ever from Domino Dollhouse) and was a bit disappointed!
Now I don’t want to give DD a bad review, because I LOVE their style and I think they’re doing fantastic things for the plus clothing industry so I will definitely be purchasing again, and testing the waters further. But here’s why I was disappointed:
Mostly because; the collar is actually made of some sort of shiny, plastic-y material that makes the dress look cheap (which, at AU$100 with shipping, it ain’t) and is a bit uncomfortable around the neck, and also has the habit of sticking up like a frill neck lizard. After a wash, it has calmed it’s tits a little but is still predisposed to standing up awkwardly.
The other reason is that it didn’t seem long enough in the torso. By the time it was over my bust, the waist line was sitting very unflatteringly right up under my boobs. So I have to wear this dress with a belt. BUT that could be an intentional design characteristic that just so happens to look balls on me (sans belt). I repeat: I am NOT writing off Domino Dollhouse.
Anyways, sorry for a million photos. Sam and I had so much fun in his cute new backyard. After the shoot we read each other’s “Goddess cards”. Turns out – we are both goddesses!
