What I Wore: Slither

When I stopped by the Gwynnie Bee Inspired By You Tour last month, I had the chance to try on this dress (this is an 0X).  I liked it so much I raced home and put it in my virtual closet.  The fabric is a heavyweight scuba knit that gives the dress a great shape.  I like it styled this way for a “desk to drinks” sort of look, but this dress also looks great paired with a blazer or cardigan.  If you want to check out Gwynnie Bee, use this link for a 30 day free trial of the program.

This lipstick has become a fave for fall; this limited edition color from The Elixery is the perfect burgundy for the season, not too cool but not too warm.  Not only that, 50% of the purchase from this specific color goes to support Lady Parts JusticeThe Elixery is a Minneapolis-based cosmetic house that handcrafts their lipsticks and other vegan and cruelty free products.  This lipstick is an amazing formula; it's creamy but it stays put far better than many of my Sephora-brand lipsticks.  And the case!  Gosh there's something awesome about whipping out a gorgeous lipstick tube for touch-ups, and this vintage inspired gold case will have people asking what brand you're wearing.  I bought this lipstick to support LPJ, but now that I've tried the brand I know this will not be my last purchase from The Elixery.

    Loved this from your Gwynnie Bee post – so glad you grabbed it, and it looks fabulous on you.
    I’m looking for a similar one from a local (Australian) retailer or an online retailer that won’t charge me more than the cost of the item to post it! Any suggestions greatly appreciated 🙂

    The elusive 0X! My closest friend is the epitome of a cusp size at a 14W/0X and has such an incredibly hard time finding clothes in those sizes. 14R isn’t always curvy enough and 16R is just too big. Have you ever done a post highlighting brands that carry those sizes?

    Also – you look really lovely in these photos!

    I saw that dress in your other post and thought it was a winner. The style is very nice.
    I have a couple of things in scuba knit and it’s great for cooler weather, but wouldn’t be my choice for Summer because it is heavy.

      It is heavy! I think this would be great for colder months with a blazer and tights.

    That dress is made for you. Best I’ve ever seen you look, hands down. Cut, fit, color, pattern. It all works perfectly for you. Gorgeous!

    Love, love, love this ENTIRE look! I usually favor leopard print over snKe but you are making me want to give it a try – absolutely fabulous!

    This is a fantastic dress on you….love, love, love it!! I’m not sure what your dress’ washing instructions say, but the one I just featured in my dress 3 way ended up pilling tremendously even though it said machine washable—-just thought I’d give you a heads up! jodie

      Thanks for the heads up, Jodie! One nice thing about GB is I didn’t have to wash this dress. After one wear I can pack up and send back!
