Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
I don’t often do reviews, because I want to keep my blog about writing and life and art. But if there is something I really want to try, I’ll gladly do one! I have been eyeing Holyclothing.com’s dresses for-ev-ah and I’ve never gotten up the nerve to buy anything. I follow them on facebook, and I often find myself comparing my body shape against the women in the customer submitted photos, wondering if the clothes would flatter me. When you are plus-sized, it is HARD to buy stuff without trying it on because although every woman’s shape is different being extra curvy makes getting the right cut for your particular exaggerated lumps and bumps an even bigger challenge!
So… I contacted holyclothing and asked if I could do a review. And they said YES! The deal was that I could pick anything I want, for free, for doing a review and posting up some links and a product photo. I chose the Venus diamond neck sundress in ‘black midnight’.
Having gotten the deal stuff out of the way, let me tell you what I got.
My dress arrived just a few days later, and right out of the bag it was freaking awesome. I tried it on and it was so flattering I immediately texted the huz “I WANT THIS IN EVERY COLOR!” I felt…. Pretty. And feminine…. I never feel like that. I don’t wear skirts or dresses because I always feel so much wider and, well, kind of dumpy in all the extra material.
But in this dress I am a princess. The cut of the dress is generous, while still giving me a bit of a shape and then floating gracefully around my lower legs. It is nice and cool, and easy to wash and wear. It wrinkled a little after being worn all day, and there were a few annoying loose threads to snip but other than that I have nothing negative to say. I can wear it for casual things or even when I need to dress up a bit.
I really do plan to buy one in EVERY color.
I am now a holyclothing convert.
