Stop Staring...

A few weeks ago I took the plunge and invested in a Stop Staring dress, I had always admired the flattering fit but I couldn’t justify the price for a retro reproduction, in a moment of desperate “ive got absolutely nothing to wear” I decided to bring one home!

To say I am in love with it is an understatement! The fabric has just enough stretch to sit, eat, drink and be merry without worrying about seam splitting, the subtle ruching means your all tucked in, in just the right places and it’s the perfect length and tightness to feel like a sexy secretary hitting the town.

I must say now that it is definitely worth the money if you are looking for a dress that feels like it was made for you, however my heart still lies with vintage it will always have that certain magic a brand new dress could never live up to!

I hope your weekend was swell! I spent mine with tequila, dancing and Mexican (not necessarily in that order) hot milo on the couch with Duke and watching Walk The Line for the 50th time…not too shabby I’d say!

(Wearing: Stop Staring Dress, Hobbs bow heels, Vintage gloves, Faux flower)

Wow! You look absolutely gorgeous in this dress! I mean, you always look gorgeous but this dress is incredibly flattering. The bow detail at the bust is wonderful and I love the flower in your hair too.

Woah, Ally, woah! What a stunning dress on you! I love how well you know your own body and what suits you... well at least I assume you do, because you always dress perfectly! I'd say this dress is an investment ;)

This dress was made for you. I think Stop Staring! has really good quality dresses. I only have one, but I love it. The fit is great, but you're right, vintage is more whimsical and fun!

This dress is fantastic and fit you perfectly Ally, you look absolutely stunning!
I found the perfect "sexy secretary" kinda dress from Modcloth last winter and I'm in love with it! I feel a tiny bit like Joan Harris everytime I wear it (obviously without the amazing shape she has though)!
Good choice you made, it's a beautiful dress, but I can't wait to see your next vintage find! :-)
Have a beautiful week and give a baby kiss to Duke for me!

Simply adore you in this dress! I'm the same way, I still haven't taken to plunge to purchase one yet, but they always look so gorgeous, and of course you're photos are tempting me to get one!
