Blue Neoprene

A couple of months ago I came across this blue 
neoprene kimono dress by Nasty Gal.
Blue kimono dress Nasty Gal - Yellow tank top - Red Heels Melissa
I tried it on, thought it was too big, too
bulky, too hot, too long but I still bought it.
Because I am stubborn.
I figured that if I had a few inches cut off
at the bottom I could pull it off.
 So after a trip to the seamstress
I am finally wearing it.
Yeah it was hot - specially as we are entering summer.
 But, I have to admit I loved it.
Was also quite surprised at the amount of compliments 
it got - and also at people wanting to touch it.
Totally worth it.

What a cool dress! I have seen a few neoprene dresses in consignment shops (including a gorgeous Ted Baker one, but way too much $$ and not my size!), but this one is amazing. I would have bought it too! Love it on you, Lorena!

That is a beautiful dress! I can see why you wanted to buy it and make it work, it does look like such a 'touchable' piece. I'm pleased it made you happy to wear it, even if it was a little warm!

I think it worked out well! Got to love a fun fabric and a striking cut. Sometimes it's good to be stubborn.
Chic on the Cheap

This is a very pretty silhouette on you! Love the fabric. I guess you could easily wear it in the cooler months, too.

It's so chic, modern and cool - not to mention super becoming on you! Love the hefty tie and length that you had it hemmed to. Fabulous piece!
