The Hot Dog Dress

I have never really been one to wear bold colors. I love my pastels and my neutrals, though my colorful tattoos may make you think otherwise. I typically stay in the Easter-hue arena when it comes to color. But this dress... oh this dress. I've kind of had my eye on it for months (and months and months and months!) I was scared to order it because I hate ordering clothes online being that I'm so strangely shaped. I have a small chest/torso, but as soon as we get south of my waist it's like BUH-BAM! HIPZ! BOOTY! haha I'm also really short (5'2 for those of you asking lately!) so length is a big issue. But I got this dress in the mail and oh my stars, it fit like a glove. Not only is the quality stellar, but the silhouette is perfect for my body. And it has hot dogs on it. Yep. Hot dogs. Right across my chest. OH! And it has pockets. Maybe to put hot dogs in on the go? I don't know, you decide. Handy dandy hot dog dress. (Yes, there's also popcorn and milkshakes and even french fries, but the hot dog takes the cake. Heh!)

I love the half-tone/comic book print of the dress and I've been wearing it like mad. I wore it to both the Jack's Mannequin and Mat Kearney shows last week (Tuesday and Thursday. Yep, outfit repeater). I love finding pieces of clothing that you want to wear over and over and over again. 

I thought the bold graphic would be perfectly fitting for my Betsey Johnson French Bulldog ring I ordered a few months ago. I ordered it because it looks EXACTLY like Pipkin. Now I have a Pipkin wherever I go! We shot these photos down from our house (we're actually finding a bunch of awesome backdrops within a block or two of our loft!) and we finished right when it started to rain. Perfecto! I did however opt to wear bright red lipstick at night. Vamp it up a bit!

I think every girl should own a hot dog dress. Just sayin'.

  3. You're so cute I could just eat you! (see what I did there?)

    I think a hamburger dress would be more appropriate for me, I don't really like hot dogs (except the funny way they look)

  4. That is a one of a kind dress! You make it work though and that french bull dog ring is adorable :) I've had mixed feelings about online shopping at times I like getting stuff online because sometimes the stores are just over whelming (like F21) but on the other hand I like to feel the fabric and try it on right there because not all looks agree with my shape. Oh the dilemma!

  21. That dress is WOWZA! Love it on you. I also have the small chest/torso, huge booty and hips problem with clothing sizes. Unfortunately most clothes aren't shaped like real people. I don't know a single woman, whatever shape she may be, that can easily buy clothes and fit into them. Insane!

  24. Amazing. The dress is so unique so way to go girl!! ; ) I am the other way around, maaassiooove top and tiny in the bottom, and yes, I can sympathise, finding clothes in a right shape is murderous...

    BTW, your new blog layout is so dreamy, very pleasing to my eyes. : )

  28. I was totally thinking about buying this on my next pay check! It looks great on you, I totally feel you about staying in the Easter arena, that and woodsy-neutrals like faded moss and mustard.

    I'm just worried it will be too short, I'm 5' 6"...

    And, hey, I think it's super cool that the dress is made in the US. :)
