Love is a battlefield

I absolutely fell in love with the print on this dress. The midi length is comfy and the print is festive and dramatic. I paired it with a leather jacket to add more edge, and a heart clutch to go with the theme.

I’m wearing a printed chiffon dress c/o Sheinside, a heart clutch (similar here), red suede booties (similar here) and a leather jacket by Ryerson grad, Yvonne Lin.

This holiday season, I love mixing a pretty print with a biker jacket, instead of your typical blazer or wool coat. I love the pretty princess sleeves and lace details, combined with the hard edged zipper on this bomber. Details like this make a leather jacket more formal, so that it can even be worn with a dress like this.

    I love this outfit! So great! I also like the edge you added with the leather jacket. And those shoes are killer! : )

    Hi Natalie:) I actually just got this dress and it is gorgeous. I’m finding the fit a little wonky though, on me the waist sits kind of high, almost like an empire waist and the skirt seems to billow out rather than hang straight down. I’m thinking of getting some curtain weight sewn into the hem to weigh it down a little bit. It fits well otherwise and like you mentioned the print is beautiful so I think it’s worth dealing with these little issues.

      Hey Patricia… I can definitely see there being a couple issues with fit. I always try to keep in mind with any asian clothing website, the clothing is sized completely differently, so I always order a size L or XL to avoid these problems. I’m really tall too, so the larger size helps with length. I’m sorry to hear about the cut of your dress, and I didn’t find that a problem with mine, however I did order the largest size! Hope that helps.
