As a tall woman with a small waist, hips, and a size 10 shoe, shopping online was not considered an option for me. I have to try on everything, and either its too tight, too short, or too big! And I am too through!
Earlier this year and last year I had a few events to attend that required evening/cocktail dresses as well as an all white dress for an induction ceremony. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve gotten older, but going shopping these days is low on my list of things to do. I just don’t have the patience, stamina, or time for it.
“Girl, I get all my dresses from Amazon!” she said.
I looked at her sideways. My friend is taller than I, approximately the same size, and all her dresses were fierce! What was I doing?
“But how is the quality though?” I asked. And she immediately confirmed that most of the dresses were of good quality, but there were a few hit or misses at times. With reluctance and time winding down, I searched through Amazon for a dress, and needless to say, I’m hooked!
And don’t get me started on how Amazon Prime made my life a million times easier! 2 Days! I’ll take it!
Here are a few of my favorite dresses!
This is probably my absolute favorite dress from Amazon! I wanted to be bold and try a bright color for the spring time. Every time I put this dress on I feel bright, free, and super cute! The bow on the left shoulder is everything and the fabric is stretchy and extremely comfortable. The length and fit allow me to be sexy and conservative. I can go from worship leading at church to the office, and even an evening out on the town. This dress actually comes in numerous colors and I do plan to collect every color at some point. When you find something you like, why not get every color!
And so the addiction began! I needed a white dress to wear to an induction ceremony and Amazon came through again. Length and sleeves were important. White is definitely hard to find at times and I needed something quick. I can be honest and say that I initially felt like a nun in this dress with the collar up so high and everything covered, but the peplum addition on the sides gave me just the little flair I needed. I could have gone up another size just to be a bit looser, but it showed some curve and still allowed me to move freely.
Oh, and I found the white shoes on Amazon as well, in my size!!! Winning!
This dress came right on time, as I was headed out of town and needed a evening gown for a gala later that week. Believe it or not, I’m not a fan of lace at all, but my favorite part of this dress was the layer laced design. I also took a risk because of the location of the split. It was higher than expected and right in the front of the dress. As you can see I’m serving you a bit of upper thigh as I sit; but I channeled my inner Beyonce, Rhianna, and J. Lo and rocked it, with stockings, of course! Can’t let all of Pandora’s box out, if you know what I mean.
This is my latest find on Amazon. So if the yellow dress is my absolute favorite then this pink dress is my absolute, absolute favorite! I finally got hip to what I’d learn from prior finds, and I ordered two different dresses, one a size up so I had options. I wanted to make sure the dress fit and I was comfortable, elegant, and classy. Check, check, and check! I danced the night away in this dress and had the best time!
Needless to say, Amazon has become my go to for dress buying, especially when I need something quick. It’s always important to check the size chart and go up one size just to be on the safe side. And if you’re like me, you buy two because their return policy is really simple!
