My New White Dress

Okay, so last Friday I shared with you divas that I ordered a dress for the white party I'll be attending soon from GoJane.com (For the post, see Fashion). Well, I ordered the dress Wednesday night, and it arrived on Saturday. I was so happy that it came so quickly, as I was worried that it may not arrive in time for the party. It arrived in this bag:

And inside that bag was another small bag that contained the dress:

I was very disappointed when I removed the dress from its pouch. The one thing I forgot about ordering online is that you never know what the material will actually be like until you get it. From the pictures, I thought the dress was going to be a polyester and spandex mix with ruching (I have a black dress that looks like it, and that's what it's made of). To my dismay however, the dress is made of a very thin cotton:

You probably can't tell from the picture above, but the dress is so thin that it is see through! There is no lining in it whatsoever, and I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to wear it. I know you're supposed to wear black underwear under white, but with this fabric, you need a full body suit to ensure that it won't be a night full of embarrassing moments. I therefore had to pull out my black pair of Spanx for this one. Although the material sucks, the good news is that the dress fits!

I cut my head out of this picture because I didn't have my hair or makeup done. Thus, I was looking a hot mess! I was just eager to try the dress on. My diva Bluebonnet67 asked me how I was going to accessorize the look, and girl I can tell you this: I will NOT be wearing those strappy silver shoes with it, that's for sure. There's just something about strappy shoes with a provocative dress that screams hooker, LOL! I do plan on pairing it with silver, but I'll probably be wearing the same shoes I wore in my Hot Pink Hottie post. I don't know, but I'll definitely post pics of the full look next week.

I can attest to your disappointment in the dress. I bought a dress from the site about two months ago. The dress was very cute but I had to constantly pull it down all night because it kept riding up my hips. Surprisingly the dress was not tight or short and it fit perfectly. So the next time I order, if I order again, I’m going to be mindful of the material and style of the dress.

Lakitia: Girl, tell me about it! Online ordering definitely has its pros and cons. XOXO

Always wear flesh toned undies under white--- give a try and you will notice that nude>skintone>fades under the white while giving you coverage

whereas Black and even white under white just makes your white even more see thru
