Hello, hello! This week has been flying by and now it is already halfway over! Work has been quite busy for me so far this week and will only get busier since I am on duty the entire weekend with the kiddos I nanny for because their parents are going to be away on a trip. I love the girls I nanny for, though, so it should be a great (exhausting) weekend!
Anyway, it has been quite a while since my last outfit post, but here I am today with something new from Voodoo Vixen's spring line! What better way to kick off the spring & summer outfit posts than with this lovely dress?!
This is my third Voodoo Vixen dress and honestly, each one has been better than the last! I didn't think it was possible to top the other two beautiful Voodoo Vixen dresses in my closet, but this one... I am just in love with it! It is really perfect in every way.
I love a good bow, so I thought that this black belt I had would be a nice match for this outfit!
This is the first gingham patterned item that I have ever owned, and I must say, I am a fan! I think it is the perfect pattern for spring and summer. Plus, this fabric is so light and airy! Also, this pinkish-orangish color is just the right hue for warmer weather months.
Sidenote: my hair has gotten so long these past several months! I think it has sort of reached its peak in length and I am debating whether or not to leave it as it is or to cut it. If I cut it, I had a long bob or some sort of wispy, wavy bob like this or this in mind. I would also probably have some side-swept bangs cut in. What do you think? It might be nice to have a fresh start for the warmer seasons ahead!
The diamond shaped cut-outs on the neckline are also such a nice, interesting touch! It adds a bit more uniqueness and femininity to the dress, don't you think? I appreciate the small details like this that Voodoo Vixen usually adds to their designs!
I'll be honest, I don't do a full face of makeup every day. You know, the eyeshadow, the liquid liner, and the lipstick. Most week days, I throw on some moisturizer or maybe some BB cream, and that's about it! I am a student and work with kids every day, so let's be real, it doesn't matter all that much if I am wearing makeup or not. So, it is definitely nice to have fun getting all dressed up on the weekend! I thought that a nice winged liner would be the perfect look to go with this dress. I also figured that you can never go wrong with a red lip! (Question: would you guys ever be interested in a makeup tutorial of some sort? Maybe just a post or a vlog?)
To say I feel fabulous in this dress would be an understatement! I have come to a conclusion about Voodoo Vixen and their designs: they just get me. They understand how a woman's body works and all of the right places that a dress should hug or nicely skim over. They understand curves. I think this is precisely why I have felt so wonderful in each dress I have received from them and why I really feel that I can order with confidence! It is a great thing when you can feel beautiful or maybe even hot (or dare I say...sexy?) in something, let alone in something that isn't showing too much. Know what I mean?
Thanks again to Voodoo Vixen for sending me this wonderful dress to feature here on the blog!
