I’ve actually been holding on to this dress all summer, waiting for THE MOMENT to wear it.  You see, I bought it before we went on our beach vacation but never found a reason to wear it because we were so casual at the beach and this dress is not here for your boring evening, ok? She wants a date and she wants it now. Or a fun cocktail hour or even as a plus one at a wedding. Just make it fun. She didn’t get steam out her ruffle perfectly to just sit and watch season 9 of The Office.

Well I finally got that moment — last week Bryan and I had a tiny staycation — just one night away — and it was absolutely lovely. (Legacy West, if you’re local!) We had 18 hours away and I put on my prettiest dress for a date night that went past 7 pm. And let me tell you, it has been a minute since we have been out that late. I felt like I was 25 again. Did you guys know the air gets cooler at night? Had completely forgotten that. But did I tell you we made it to season 9 of The Office?

Yeah who cares about my date — let’s talk about this dress. Rarely do I find a dress that I feel so comfortable in and I will tell you that it’s selling fast in the black but it’s available in the prettiest red here! I am in the 8 of the dress and it’s a perfect fit. I would say true to size, tailored fit. (For what it’s worth, I find all & Other Stories to fit very close to Madewell sizing.) You can find this dress here.

Have you checked out & Other Stories before? I’ve been sleeping on it, to be honest but I really like it. If you guys like it, too I can do a try on from there! Prices seem to be pretty reasonable and I really like a lot of the styles. Let me know!

Fit Details

I am in the 8 of the dress. TTS fit, tailored with a zipper on the side. It’s a close fit FYI. I am in the 10 of the sandals. They’re 5/10 comfortable. Not terrible, but after a while the straps dig in.

  1. OK Kendi to arrange a second date with your so pretty and so sensual black dress. But, she would have to tell me the story of ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ in the 7000 languages spoken in the world.


  2. Loving this dress. I just got something at Other Stories and keep forgetting how good they are! Need to remember to browse them more often.
