Seashell Shift Dress

All About the Outfit:  Greetings!  I'm in love with this ModCloth seashell print shift dress (Saltwater Melodies Sheath Dress).  Or rather, I'm in love with the print and idea of it, as the fit is a little wonky.  I had to sit with it before deciding to send it back or not.  Below I have my jacket off and you can kind of tell it's boxy, especially with my hand in one of the pockets.  It's a-shame because the pockets are HUGE and roomy but they give your hips 3 extra inches on both sides.  Ultimately I decided to keep this gem because the print is amazing IRL with subtle neon green and lavender shadows in the shells AND because I love wearing shift dresses on low key days.  I reasoned my figure more or less gets lost in all of my dresses like this, ha, so the fact that this one is a little tighter in the hips is probably making only me notice and nobody else will. But there is a solid chance I will mostly wear this dress with layers as I think it's more flattering that way.  But be warned if you get it, the interior lining gets more narrow so it's not the most perfectly constructed dress :(  

I took off the jacket below and put my hand in the pockets in one picture and hugged my waist in another photo to show off the range of how flattering or not this dress is.
Outfit Details:  It's been pretty consistently hot here for a while now!  I generally only wear jackets at night lately, but am still super thankful for this Members Only jacket (last seen HERE) for when it still is jacket weather.  I've been obsessed with platform flats lately, so I using these shoes I went for a mostly monochromatic look (not counting the jacket plus sunglasses).

Sunglasses: eBay find
Jacket: Members Only
Dress: ModCloth
Shoes: Amazon (Brand: Dadawen)
Hope everyone is having a good week so far!  I'm good but a little stressed, as there's a lot on my plate this week!  I'm hoping to post most days this week, but I don't want to over promise!  Also, don't forget to LIKE MY NEW FACEBOOK PAGE please!  And, if you've missed Just Shair videos, we're back and making a quick appearance after a temporary hiatus this winter so feel free to watch our new video HERE!  Have a great Tuesday!

  2. I really like the print on your dress and I don't think the fit looks off in the photos! How things feel when they're worn is definitely more important than a photo though :)

    Hope you are having a great week and have a wonderful weekend ahead of you :)

  3. What a cute print! Good thing you decided to keep it! :) I love the collar of this dress too. I was on the fence on platform flats, but I've decided I definitely want a pair! Yours are adorable! Are they comfy/easy to walk in?

    Hope you're having a great weekend!
