Almira

Stop Staring Almira Swing Dress Southern California Belle

Anyone who thinks that black is a year-round color is certainly a friend of mine!  While I love bright colors and fun novelty prints, there is something about a classic black dress that sets my heart on fire.  The Almira dress from Stop Staring takes that classic LBD and gives it a fun retro/gothic twist.  Known for their impeccable styles and their ability to flatter all body types, this Stop Staring dress is no exception!

Dress- c/o Stop Staring

Belt- From another dress
Lipstick- c/o Vinyl Cosmetics Thunder Kiss liquid lipstick in Cherrybomb

The Almira dress is made from a super light and extremely stretchy millennium fabric.  Even though this dress has long half sleeves, the fabric allows a full range of motion in the arms.  As a busy mom, having no restrictions in my clothing is a huge plus!  This dress features a fitted bodice with faux buttons and pleating down the front, a contrasting statement collar in white, slight gathers on the shoulders and the bottom of the sleeves, a full swing skirt, and a long back zippered closure.  While this dress can be dressed up with a pair of high heels, gloves, and a pretty head piece; I decided to dress it down with some lace-up flats and a black belt.  I feel like a chic and grown-up version of Wednesday Addams and I'm loving every minute of it!

Tomorrow my husband is taking a half-day off at work so I can do something just for me: go to Disneyland with two of my favorite friends.  No kids allowed!  As much as I enjoy spending my days with Bianca, I need some time to recharge with my friends.  Almost every time we get together Bianca is with me so I'm really happy to have some "adult" time with them.  And by adult time, I mean ride fun/scary rides at Disneyland and eat everything in sight.  My (obviously) stretchy outfit is ready!

  2. You're the cutest Wednesday Addams ever. Also, I was just telling my mom how good the Indiana Jones ride is... I hope you went on it for me! <3

  3. You DO look like Wednesday Adams! I have been looking for a demure, gothic-inspired dress with a peter pan collar. I didn't realise Stop Staring had one!
