Modeled Styles Part 1

Modeled Styles Part 1

Since I do work at Nordstrom, I have access to a lot of beautiful clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. I often try on a lot of the clothes that I sell, as it helps me sell the items better because I can let clients know about fit, if an item runs big or small, etc. I also do a lot of research to see if certain dresses, for example, come in different colors that we maybe don’t have in the store, but can offer and order for clients. Here are just a few photos of dresses that I’ve tried on (and purchased some)!
Eliza J Cap Sleeve Shimmer Dress for $128. LOVE this dress! So unbelievably comfortable and it has a subtle shimmer to it as well. I have not purchased this one yet, but plan to, as it is so versatile. I can wear it to a cocktail attire event, put a blazer over it and wear to work, or pair with a leather jacket and boots for a night out on the town! This is a dress for all seasons and will never go out of style.

This dress is by one of my absolute favorite dress designers, Dress the Population. Price points for Dress the Population dresses range anywhere from $165 to over $300, which isn’t too bad considering the amazing details that go into these dresses. I first fell in love with Dress the Population dresses years ago because a lot of their dresses (and some pantsuits and rompers) are made of all sequins. If you get to know me, you will quickly learn I love anything that sparkles… the more sequins, the better! This particular one is fairly new at Nordstrom and available online. These dresses usually run a little small. I am usually a size 0-2, but am wearing the size small here.

Here are 2 more dresses by Dress the Population. Select Nordstrom’s carry both of these dresses, and they can also be ordered online. The one on the left is only $172 and comes in a variety of colors. The one on the right is $254. Both are absolutely stunning!

This picture below is also Dress the Population. See what I’m talking about with the sequins?! These sequins are reversible and turn from red to a midnight color depending on how you run your fingers across them! I ended up purchasing this adventurous lil number for no reason but because I loved it. I justified it at THE TIME by saying it was for a big upcoming birthday, which was like 9 months away when I purchased this. What I will say to justify a purchase! 🙀🤷‍♀️

Another one of my favorite designer’s is Ted Baker. This dress does not truly show off his eclectic and edgy style, but he makes a wide range of items, from colorful, eclectic dresses and purses to dresses like this, which looks like pure class with some added flare so you still know it’s Ted Baker! This is a gray, ‘power suit dress’ in my opinion and I felt like I should be in the boardroom telling people what to do and making big decisions… I felt like a serious Boss Babe lol! I tried on a size too large, which is why my right hand is behind me holding the dress tighter from the back to show how it should really fit. His dresses cost anywhere from $200 to over $600, but money well spent. I would pair this with some white or pink pumps to go with the accessories like the ones shown below. These accessories are more “Ted Baker” – really shows how great he is at design and playing with colors. Fashion is truly an art to me.

This gorgeous red gown by Lulus is STUNNING! I call it the ‘Pretty Woman’ dress for obvious reasons. I tried this one on for fun and I ended up purchasing it on the spot. It is only $94! I currently have absolutely no where to wear this gown, but for the price and the perfect fit, I couldn’t pass it up! And I’m sure something will come up where I need a dress like this, and I will already have it in my closet. I seriously felt like Julia Roberts in one of my all-time favorite movies, Pretty Woman!

We all need an LBD…or 5 of them! This classic beauty is by Helmut Lang and was available at Nordstrom and on sale for a dynamite price. It is made of an ultra-soft knit silk spandex material and was so comfortable! A dress like this can be accessorized like crazy and paired with a bold color pump and clutch! Love it!❤️

This last dress by Lulus came in last night as an online return. It was a size too big, but I tried it on anyways, and I felt like I could get married in this gown. Simple white with silver shimmer threads throughout, a plunging neckline, and beautiful long hem. If I was getting married, I would seriously consider this dress. AND, it was extremely comfortable too – BONUS! This could also be worn to a ‘white party’, which I’m seeing more and more women coming in looking for all white dresses for these parties.

That’s all for this post. I still have a lot more to show, but I’ll spread it out and add more gradually.
