Tease

Burlesque Dress

Burlesque Dress

This dress is a true work of art.  It's definitely one of the more scandalous items in my closet -- aside from the burlesque girl depicted in various stages of undress, it's also very low-cut on me.  It's not a dress that would be appropriate for many occasions, but I absolutely love it (and it's plain to see how high the quality is).  I'm thinking that I'll probably wear it some time during the Fringe Festival this fall, though I'll probably wear a cardigan over it and opt for black heels.  I think this dress is a showstopper, for sure!

Jelly Wedges

This blue glitter jelly wedges are really fun, but they aren't nearly as comfortable as I had hoped they'd be.  I have two pairs of Mel by Melissa jelly wedges that are fairly comfy, and I think the difference between those and the ones I'm wearing here is that the Mel shoes are made of a much softer, malleable plastic.  The plastic of these wedges doesn't mold as well to my feet, and it's much less flexible for walking.  I really do love them though, so I'll just have to find occasions to wear them that don't involve a ton of walking!  I had a tough time deciding between the wedges and these plastic heels (which would've matched the dress perfectly!), but I was too nervous about the heels being even less comfortable!  You can't win 'em all, I guess.

  1. What an amazing 'pattern' - if you can even call it that, it basically is like a work of modern art on a dress! This would be such a good party dress... I love the bright pink and the crossover straps at the back are a great touch. You look great - everyone should wear a lower neckline once in a while ;) x

  3. This post literally took my breath away. You look STUNNING! I totally feel you on feeling exposed with a lower neckline, but the fit on you is just too perfect to hide this gem in your closet. Also, I love those jellies. They aren't really known for being the most comfortable but they sure are pretty :).

  10. You bombshell! You look so fabulous in this. Love the sweetheart neckline, and the hot pink and black is aces on you. It's too bad about the comfort level of the shoes, because they are really cute.

  13. Love it! Wondering -- what bra do you wear for these kinds of dresses? Lower necklines; fun or thin straps? I struggle with that! Thanks!

    1. Hi there -

      I wore a strapless bra with this dress. I hope that helps!

  16. What a fantastic dress! I've seen it a couple times now, and while I'm not sure that I'd be brave enough to wear it, I think it's a fantastic piece and looks just stunning on you!
