I made a few purchases from forever 21 but this one was my most recent! I saw this dress on Tiffany D. aka MakeupByTiffanyD on youtube. You can see her video here. I thought the dress and the deep royal blue looked absolutely stunning. This was right after I bought my forever 21 black lace chiffon dress from my previous post. Darn! But I just had to have this one too! Sadly it was no where to be found on Forever21.com. The other day I was browsing the sale items and somehow it magically appeared and I immediately gobbled one up :D
This dress was on sale for 20.99 USD originally 24.99. I purchased mine in the sale section on Forever21.com. I think the royal blue sold out fast but this dress is still available in a pretty aqua color here.
The whole dress feels and looks expensive. The fabric is light and slightly stretchy. Sheer but there's a silky slip underneath on the top and down to mid-thigh. The fabric is a deep royal cobalt blue. The sun (even in the shade) seemed to wash out the richness of the blue in the photos.
The back is simple with a low scoop neck. The middle has a stretchy band which would look great covered with a thin belt as well. The front of the dress has pretty bronze metal buttons going down the middle till about where the slip ends mid-thigh. After the buttons end, the fabric is slit down the middle. I really love the slit because it makes the dress cooler and more open on hot days. The dress also has 2 cute pockets on the front.
I ordered a small. I'm about 5' 8" 110 lbs. The dress is slightly loose on me but not so loose it looks bad. And I usually don't have a problem with length since I'm pretty tall but the dress is a little long and touches the ground slightly. I may have to get it hemmed.
Here I just paired the dress with simple bronze flip-flops from Old Navy and some beautiful bronze dangle earrings from World Market.
