Ever since the 80’s I’ve been a fan of fishnet – it’s edgy, sexy and reveals just the right amount of flesh. So whether it’s lingerie or clothing, I’m a sucker for holes, see-through, mesh, chiffon, lace…as long as its suggestive, I’m in it. Well, mostly after work…
So when I spotted the Michel Studio Mesh Maxi Dress first in the Addition Elle Spring look book, I had-had-had to have it. From the moment it was on me in the fitting room, I was in love. What more could I want in a sexy, casual, plus size summer dress – that could easily transform into a beach cover or even a sexy night out look?
I first wore my it over this two-piece swimsuit by Forever 21 Plus Sizes (featured in a previous post here). I added an electric blue skinny belt, my Jessica Simpson statement necklace and my new Penningtons strappy wedge sandals that I love! (More on those later!)
It was kinda neat how the criss cross strappy back of the swim suit gave this illusion to the back of the dress.
I found it quite flattering – it just fell nicely over my body. The length was perfect for me because I like dresses to hit at or below the knee and I’m only 5′.
I thought it was perfect with my new Penningtons wedge lace up sandals, which are not too high, so comfy and sexy. Hard to get all those qualities in a lady shoe!
Another way to rock this dress, in keeping with the whole 80’s style I like, is with this super cute crop hoodie also from Addition Elle and on sale now for $14.99!!! Because of my height, or lack of it, I cut it about 2 inches from the bottom so that the crop length would actually show my waist. I am totally digging the retro, rebellious curled edges look – watch out now, I might start cutting up more clothing. After all, there are no rules in fashion. It’s what you make it.
And finally, just to show you the versatility of this amazing dress, here it is paired with a pink bolero also from Addition Elle (currently in stock) and Penningtons pink sandals from last year. Sexy, non?
So get this dress ladies – you’ll be so glad you did!
