this seemingly simple LBD epitomizes all that is wrong with one of my favorite retailers.
i’m not gonna lie, UO & its affiliates (anthropologie and free people) make up at least half my closet. but lately i’m a little frustrated.
this dress is an XS, the size i almost always take at UO. i snagged this dress for a measly $10 over the post-xmas sales, thinking it would be versatile. i thought i was getting a steal. i really, really should have tried it on before purchasing.
while i admit that i’m not particularly curvaceous, the dress does absolutely nothing for my waist for butt - there’s way too much fabric. more importantly, the dress does NOT support my small chest.
(sorry for the hairy pits, it’s winter - ok?)
there’s just too much fabric in the front, but not nearly enough in the back. i can’t even wear a damn bra with it thanks to the stupid bodycon/cutout trend.
