Tons of New Dresses!

So the new dresses I bought a few weeks ago from different websites have all started to arrive.  And now I've got 4 new ones!  I know I totally went over board, but hey, I can use all of them.

I really like this Calvin Klein side-tie dress I got from Hautelook.  The print is very different, and I love that I can wear it to work with or without a jacket over.  The material is very comfy too.  As usual, Calvin Klein sizes run really big, so I ordered an XS and it's still not a tight fit at all.  Wonder what size real XS people wear from there?

Here's what it looks like with my Calvin Klein suit jacket over:

And here are the screen shots I took from Hautelook, they show the details better:

Next up is this Costa Blanca Novara dress I got on Beyond the Rack :

I wish this dress was a bit looser on me because I like the style.  The belt it comes with is actually very nice too.  But I don't really like Beyond the Rack and I don't want to deal with returning stuff to them.  I actually only paid $2 for this dress anyway lol.  I had some credit from a long time ago that I totally forgot about, so I wanted to use them up and then not deal with this site again.  Although this time the shipping was significantly faster than the normal 1 month time frame I was used to before.

I like how this dress looks on the model since it fits her looser...

Ahhh... maybe this will be my motivation dress!  LOL!

Next, I bought another dress from Hautelook that is a babydoll / pregnant dress.  I like this one though. It will make a nice summer dress.  It's from Glam Vintage Soul, and it's called the Summer Embroidered Cotton Slip dress.

So this one is just very typical summer dress style.  I like the subtle embroidery on it though.  It matches my shoes exactly!  Maybe these pictures would show the embroidery details better:

 And last but not least, I got this Lucca Couture Swiss Dot Tank dress, also from Hautelook:

I actually think this dress also looked a lot cuter on the model pics than in person.  But maybe I just need to play with the placement of the elasticized waistband more and try to figure it out.  Because right now I think it makes me look rather shapeless.  I like the material and color though.  Regardless, this one was final sale.  But it was only $19, down from $70.

Hmm I think I now just have one more dress coming in the mail!  Haha.  Hopefully it will be a winner. =)


  1. I don't know but... I don't think any of these dresses flatters you. You have such a great body and none of these models do justice to it. They are sort of baggy and shapeless on you, If at all, the very first one but I believe you can find something better this season. On the other hand, girl you rock those shorts in the other post!

    1. Thanks... I'm not too happy with these either. =( Well I am definitely keeping the first one since I like the print. And 2 of them are non-returnable. So I guess I am forced to pretty much keep all of them lol.
