Lovely In Lace: The Bachelorette Dress

Catherine The BachelorWe all have our own guilty pleasures, watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette just happens to be one of mine. So when The Petite Shop asked me to review their new “Bachelorette Dress” I was thrilled. During the last Bachelor “After The Rose” ceremony, Catherine (Sean’s pick) wore a lovely navy lace cocktail dress (pictured below). Luckily, The Petite Shop was able to track down a petite specific version and I’m happy to say I’m giving it two thumbs up!

The quality of the dress is outstanding and it fit perfectly. The details on the lace are so sweet. This is the perfect dress for a wedding or night out.

The dress is available in Navy (seen below) or in Berry and comes in size 2P-14P. To give you an idea for sizes, I am wearing a 4P.

**My measurements are:
Bust: 32B
Natural Waist: 26
Waist where pants normally sit: 32
Hips: 37

I have just enough room in the dress to feel comfortable. I wouldn’t want it any tighter otherwise I’d feel too restricted.

You can find the ‘Bachelorette Dress’ here at The Petite Shop.

Outfit Post: The Perfect Fall Blouse

It’s been unusually dry here in the Pacific Northwest. Recording setting actually — which has been wonderful. Normally we don’t really get to enjoy the beautiful golden colors of Fall since the rain comes through and drowns the leaves into to a slippery mess on the sidewalks but this year it’s been different. The leaves are vibrant and they actually make a crunching noise when I step on them. Unfortunately this probably wont last — especially now since I’ve jinxed it by typing this.

My husband and I stopped by a park near our home so I took a few photos of the new blouse I found at Nordstrom earlier this week. I’ve been searching for pieces in the deep burgundy color that’s so popular this season and came across this Pleione A-line top with an angled hem. It’s extremely comfortable and effortless. So effortless I’m going to head back and get it in more colors. I paired it with my favorite ‘Case Closed’ wedges by Seychelles to top off the look.

Sunshine, Stripes and Skinnies

It’s finally cooled down here in the Northwest. Not that I was complaining or anything but come on people — 97 degrees and no air conditioning a few weeks ago — it wasn’t exactly pleasant. Anyway, it seems to be over now, at least the house is cooler and I can sleep at night.

I recently picked up two new pairs of denim (a black and dark wash) from Express while they were having their ‘buy one get one for $29.50’ sale. Me being me, of course I combined the deal with the coupon code I received in the mail to get and extra $30.00 off a purchase of $100.00 of more — needles to say I was pretty proud of myself. Anyway, the fit and length is perfect. I picked up the “Extreme Stretch” legging jeans in their ‘short’ length and the fit is great.

A Trip To Old Navy

As promised, I made it to Old Navy today.

I got out there early enough to beat the lines and the back to school madness (which is just crazy since it’s still only July). Even though the ‘Rockstar’ jeans were pretty picked over I was able to find my size in the dark denim wash, white and green colors. I was completely unimpressed with the white jeans because they were so lightweight that you could see the pocket liners through them and the white wasn’t really that white. The edges even had a yellowish tint to them so I passed on those immediately (but still posted a couple photos). The dark denim and the green were my favorites and the quality was much better for some reason.
