Today we are bringing you ladies something new, RAVE REVIEWS
! This is chance for us, or our fans, to review dresses that they have purchased. And while we know it may not seem fair to review our own stock, we HAD
to do it! Simply because someone here fell in LOVE
with the Stop Staring Maria Dress and wanted to share it with our fans! But if you are looking for more reviews of many of the dresses we carry, from a non JBR blogger, then make sure to check out Pin Up Persuasion
, Jessica is always very honest about her finds!
We got this dress in recently and I have to admit, I was the one who had to have it! When I saw it at the Magic show in February I thought it was so cute, but when we ordered it for all of you I felt like I had to have it! Now I am not a wiggle girl, I am very much a swing dress. I am shy to wear anything that hugs my body so close, but following in the advice I gave everyone else in our last post about swing versus wiggle, I wanted to try something new.
I ordered the dress and when we got it in I couldn’t wait to wear it! I tried to think of when I could best use it; wear it to work, a cocktail party, wear it to a meeting? There were too many options, so what I ended up doing was wearing it to a lecture I was giving. I was nervous the morning of, but I slipped it on and it was glorious!
The way that Stop Staring has built the dress is to really cinch in the waist and draw the eye to the smallest part of your body. I have broad shoulders, but the ties at the top of the dress were in the best spot, I felt like my shoulders looked flirty and sleek. And the part I feared the most, my lower body….well it was a fitted skirt, but the material made me feel like I was being formed to the dress and it helped me feel more comfortable in it.
But the highlight of the whole day was that I got so many compliments from the office staff about the dress! Everyone said it looked so flattering on me and made me look slimmer, no small feat for a size 12!
If you have been debating trying this dress, I honestly wouldn’t! I am even thinking of ordering the Stop Staring Magnolia Dress! I can’t wait to wear it to more events! I promise to share photos via Twitter the next time I wear the dress to an event!
