A Black Dress + $800 Cash Giveaway

A few weeks ago as I was getting dressed for church, I realized that I had stretched out all my church clothes through two pregnancies, and now when I get ready for church, they pretty much all just fall off my body. I joked with Derek that  I was just going to buy all new church clothes... but then a couple hours of browsing on Forever 21's website, and $100 later, I've found myself with a whole new church wardrobe that I really love. (Other new outfits can be seen here, here, and here). 

This dress was a labor of love to get it just right. When shopping online there are a lot of details with clothes that you sometimes over look. This dress has a huge gaping hole in the back of it, which I fixed by wearing a black undershirt. It also has a massive slit in the back that goes very high up. I of course didn't realize that part until half way through three hours of church last week and then my friends were helping me safety pin the slit closed. I've now sewn the slit up so that everybody can't see my everything. And I'm pleased to have a cute dress just the way I like it.

  9. It really is so easy to miss certain details when shopping online. But at least you were about to easily fix the things you didn't like about the dress :)
