Bambi

So despite all my moaning about the heat, it's actually cooled off a bit in the past few days, due in no small part to the endless rain we've been getting. I'm dreading it getting warmer again, because as the temperature climbs my productivity level inevitably drops...the past month all I've wanted to do is laze around and catch up on Season 3 of My Little Pony (yup, I am....a Brony *screams internally* O u O ).

Anyway, enough banter. A couple weeks ago I posted this deer-print dress. I adored the look of it, and could only hope that the actuality was just as cute. Items from Chinese Ebay sellers are very hit-or-miss--sometimes they look nothing like their photo.

Pardon the mess, I've just moved to a new apartment!

Rest of the review after the jump!
Luckily this frock is just as cute in real life. I'm sure it's actually too twee for a lot of people my age, but personally this is just the kind of thing I like to dress up with a leather jacket and a spike headband. Here's a closeup of the pattern:

Sorry about all the wrinkles! I haven't had a chance to unpack my iron yet. All listings say this dress is chiffon, but it's really more of a poly-crepe, and nowhere near as sheer enough to be considered a chiffon. At least they admit it is polyester. There are stray threads all over the place of course, but at least there are no ragged or (super) uneven edges. There is also a seam running right through the center front of the skirt, which I'm not crazy about but you can't really tell when it's on since it's concealed in the folds anyway.

Overall this is a decent buy for the price; I'd say it's probably around Forever21 quality, which is what I was expecting, so I'm not disappointed on that front. In terms of the design I'm super pleased by how cute it is.

It's been a while since I've done an outfit post (and this technically isn't a *real* one since I didn't go out in it), it's because I lost my big mirrored wardrobe when I moved so it's hard to take pictures. And it's too embarrassing to ask A to do it for me. But I hope you enjoyed this sort of half-assed review of this dress! I hope to get it together and do more soon.
