The Pretty Dress Company Unique Vintage Retro White & Multi Diamond Priscilla Miami Midi Swing Dress

Thanks to Unique Vintage my summer wardrobe is in full swing!  As you may already know, Unique Vintage is the official US retailer for The Pretty Dress Company.  I've lusted after their gorgeous dresses for years, but those UK shipping fees always prevented me from purchasing.  Now I can order or (if you're in southern California like me) walk into the store to try them on worry free!  First dress on my list: the Priscilla Miami Midi Dress!

The first thing I noticed about this dress was the weight of the fabric.  It's a stiff (but smooth) fabric that really holds its shape.  The bodice is lined, there are deep side pockets, and the skirt is perfectly pleated and very full.  I went with their UK8 but I found the dress to be a bit on the large side, especially in the waist.  Nothing a belt couldn't fix!  The straps aren't adjustable but I have a very long torso, so the fit of the bodice was perfect for me.  Overall I'm really happy with this dress.  I can't wait to see what this new Unique Vintage/Pretty Dress Company partnership has to offer in the future!

I'm looking forward to a less stressful week, fingers crossed.  Last week was a doozy, but it ended really well.  I met up with my sister and one of my brothers for a mutual friend's housewarming/birthday party.  We had way too much fun!  I stopped drinking alcohol about eight months ago and I'm always worried that I won't have as much fun sober.  I was obviously wrong because I had the best time!  I don't get to see my siblings or friends very often so it really was a special night for me.  Now I just need to catch up on some sleep!

  3. This dress rocks!!! Also, don't worry about being the sober one. I have ALWAYS been the sober one (I only started drinking - lightly - a few years ago) and never noticed any difference in fun levels. Remember, it's not alcohol that makes life fun, it's the company you're with!! =D
