The Shirt Dress

IMG_0327

One of three things happened the past year – I had a growth spurt, my dryer is a monster, or I finally gained the college and 21+ weight. My money is on the latter two but either way, this top was actually a dress when I first bought it a year ago. I wore it to my first fashion week but after drying it, the front part of the dress definitely shrunk a couple inches and well… no one wants to see that much of Audree. I was about to donate the dress when I remembered a recent article I saw online about the comeback of the shirt dress, thanks for Sarah Jessica Parker! I tried on the dress with leggings, rolled up the sleeves of the dress and BAM – I birthed the shirt dress. I am so happy I had an innovative streak during my cleaning spree because I’m seriously obsessed with this outfit! Other ways to match your old dresses are with shorts and calf-high gladiator sandals, or with a body-con skirt for a night look.

I wore this outfit to the launch party for The Glam App last week – a new beauty app that with a push of a button The Glam App delivers beauty experts to your front door! You can book various services from hair, nails and make-up, so basically they are bringing the salon to you (can I get an amen for never needing to put on pants?! I mean maybe…). But it just launched in Phoenix (also currently in LA, Orange County, Las Vegas, Dallas and NYC) and it was so great to have a girl’s night out with some of my favorite local bloggers! Check out a few snaps of the party and shop my look at the bottom of the post. Happy Tuesday!

  1. I don’t know if it’s the newfound freedom of being out of school, because I liked your style before, but it’s elevated in so many ways! I’m just digging your style more and more with each post! Absolutely stunning and such an inspiration! Please, don’t stop! 🙂
