Almost on Trial: Denim Dress

Denim Dress, London Jean. Black wrap sweater, Bloch. Silver bird necklace, Xhilaration. Black slip, thrifted. Yellow pumps, Victoria Spenser.

I’ve had this dress since 2002 and this is the third time I’ve worn it. I wore it to our HoF cast party because I wanted to put in on trial, but eight hours in this dress reminded me of why I don’t like it; it’s stiff, tight, and uncomfortable. Some might even call it “armor-like.” I’m putting it up for swap. Just in case you’re interested in seeing the dress without the layering, here are front and side shots:

I had a dress like that myself and ended up giving it away for that exact same reason- sooo uncomfortable!

Armor is right :-)

It looks good, too bad it doesn't feel good :-(

I think I have that same dress in halter style. I never wear mine either....

Still have it? I like the look of it better without the exterior layer, but I think it would look more interesting with a metallic belt or one embellished with turquoise. Is washing the heck out of it until it softens up an option? How about undoing the bottom snap or adding a modest slit in the back?

I have heard that rubbing fabric softener sheets over denim until it is the right softness works like a charm!

Lovely denim dress, really suits you. Denim shirts and dresses are so played down in modern society
