I’m a sweatpants girl through and through. I would have worn my black Lululemon Groove Pants and grey American Apparel deep v t-shirt down the aisle at my brother’s wedding if I could. Unfortch, that idea was shot down immediately.
But I have to say – even though my wardrobe consists of 16 pairs of sweatpants and only 3 dresses – there is something somewhere deep inside me that yearns to look like a Barbie Doll. I love pink, I love ruffles and and I love really, super girly dresses.
Which is why I am totally drooling over this little number from a new line I discovered, Truese. The Diaz Dress is perfectly girly without being too cheesy, over-the-top, or Elle Woods-y. It’s bright, it’s tight and it’s got the hottest little exposed zipper down the back adding even more interest to an already banging dress. And all those details – the ruffles, the pleats, the zipper – work seamlessly together. The dress looks cute and flattering; not over-done.
You could rock this to a campus party (welcome week, what what) with black tights and pumps, or to a wedding (it’s more acceptable than a Juicy track suit) with some sky high strappy sandals. Either way, you’d be noticed and remembered.
And the best part: Truese goes up to a size 14, so you don’t have to look like Barbie to dress like her.
