Happy new year, everyone!
Eighteen days into 2018 and it’s already been a mixed bag. While I’m excited to see what the year has to bring, we also suffered a death in the family late in the year. It’s sad and unfortunate, as all deaths are, but at the same time it also reminds us to be present and extraordinary in the lives that we live. I’ve gone many, many years without making New Year’s resolutions, promises and goals (though, I think I actually did make one or two last year), and I realized that I didn’t make promises because I was afraid of failure. It was then pointed out to me, that we can’t turn ideas and visions about our future into reality without making promises to ourselves or others. So I here I am, with a different outlook and vision for my life in 2018 and you are all along for the ride. =)
Anyway, enough about my personal ramblings and I shall introduce you to this lovely crochet dress that was sent to me from Petitedressing.com. As the name implies, the website is geared towards petites, but also, the items sold are from independent designers which I think is exciting! I’ve always admired independent, lesser known designers because it is such a tough industry and as a child I dreamed of designing clothes. And as a side note, the website also offers petite styling tips and resources which are quite helpful.
The dress I was sent is described as the Sleeveless Lace Dress, but it definitely has a crochet overlay. It is also certainly not work appropriate. If you look closely, you can see it is cut very low in front behind the crochet and there is a cut-out around the mid-section. Lovely for a wedding as a guest or a date night out, but not so much for the office.

With regards to fit, the dress fits very well on me in a size Small. I find it a bit long around the torso due to the fact that I am short-waisted, so it caused a little extra material up in the bodice and shoulders, but the bottom half of the dress fits perfectly and hit me just above the knee. Overall, I’m extremely happy with the quality of the dress so I highly recommend checking out the website for some petite-friendly clothing at reasonable prices, while at the same time supporting independent designers. Also, important to note that shipping is only $4.99 in the within the US. I’m looking forward to wearing this dress in warmer weather, which cannot come soon enough!
