This is a dress I got from a past Stitch Fix. I wore it to open house night back in August, and I had almost forgotten about it in my closet over the winter. Luckily, I spotted it when looking for something to wear to school the day a few of my classes were having formal debates with parents and administrators (and even our town mayor) in the audience.
- Dress: Muse “Tessa” Cold Shoulder Dress ($88, from Stitch Fix)
- Shoes: Kork-Ease ($149, similar)
- Earrings: Kendra Scott ‘Addie’ earrings in gold filigree ($54, from Rocksbox)
This dress is so, so comfortable. It’s stretchy and drapey, and it has an elastic waist. The top is blousy, but not too blousy. I like the pattern and the cobalt, black, and white aren’t colors I would have chosen off of the rack, but I ended up liking it.
I love the cold shoulder part, too! The typical cold shoulder (holes at the shoulder area) doesn’t look that great on me because I have
shoulders like a linebacker big shoulders. But this slit-style cold shoulder really works well and I also think it looks a bit more dressy than the typical cutout type.
Looking back, this might’ve been a better choice for prom than either dress I was considering and probably also the one I bought at the last minute. It was squeezed in between a blazer and another dress in my closet and I didn’t see it, and since I hadn’t worn it since fall, it was a case of out of sight, out of mind. Love it when you can shop your own closet and come out with a surprise or two, but it’s probably also a sign that you need to clean and organize your closet. :-/
