Sometimes, there is a designer who is so good, that you do not even realize you now have two dresses from the same designer in the same color, AND you could not care less.
This dress by Melissa Masse, whom I have loved for the past four years, has done just this. I actually have a one shoulder dress from her, from over four years ago, in THIS SAME HUE! Ha! Yes, I do. But when her team reached out to fashion something for Full Figured Fashion Week, I could not turn down this offer! Especially as this dress was JUST a Gotta Have It of mines…
SO this is a re-shoot… especially since I did not get a really good pic of this in New York, but I was so in love and had to share!
I spoke of this dress and the ruching and the color and the neckline- all things I was salivating over. But what I could not share, because I didn’t know was the fabric. Um… can we say yummy? SO. Damn. SOFT. Given the summer heat right now, I wasn’t sure if I needed to rock some spanx, I was trying to be cool, calm, and collected here!
And in this dress, with this fabric and cut, I did not HAVE to rock any… comfy and playful! This would and is going to be my little black dress alternative; we all need a few of these. Sexy yes?
This Melissa Masse dress will last me a few years- bet.
I paired my look with these pewter heels from Guess and the handbag I scored from Last Call at Nieman’s a few months back!
You can shop this dress from Bloomingdales or at Melissa Masse’s website!
