I would have never thought I will reach this far when it comes to blogging. This is my past-time and my way of somehow living my dream of becoming a “feature writer”. I may not be well-known or may not have many followers and engagements in my blog, but the feeling of being blessed with my little success puts a smile on my face. Especially when I receive messages from people asking about the clothes, products and travel destinations that I have blogged about. More so when companies or business contact me asking if I am willing to do a cooperation or collaboration with them. The blogging world may seem non-sense and a waste of time for some people, but for those who love to do what they do, it is something. I guess if you’re not stepping on somebody's toes with what you do then it's ok.
I recently received a dress for review from LalaLilo.com. This is a shift printed dress that I’ve been eyeing from other online shops. But before I go into a detailed review of the dress let me first introduce Lalalilo.com

The dress is a 3/4 sleeve shift dress. A shift dress usually has a straight silhouette that was popular during the 1960’s-70’s. Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy are celebrities of those times that you would often se wearing this type of dress. Shift dresses are usually fuss-free and flattering.
The print is a combination of paisley and damask in black and white. It is a stunning vintage-inspired design that elegantly finishes on the knee. The paisley print and the bold Baroque-inspired print is such a sweet combination that even my mother said the prints are lovely and if she could only fit into it she would ask me to give her the dress.
When I took it off the packaging, I thought it wouldn't fit me because it looked too small but after trying it on it still sat with some room for my body to move freely and has a slightly A-line shape to it. The length of the sleeve falls just right to where I want it to be.
It is made of a lightweight cloth and very drape-y. It is a surprise that it wasn't sheer at all so there’s no need to wear a camisole underneath it. It was very comfortable to wear especially on a Summer day.
I love that this dress is incredibly easy to style. I can wear it on casual days with a pair of ballet flats or wedge sandals or as a work wear paired closed black heels and cinched on the waist with a slim belt or as a lounge/resort wear when on vacation or at the beach. But one thing is for sure it is definitely going to catch everyone’s eye!
