Here's another quick post that I'm writing late at night while half asleep. I went to another taping of @Midnight, where I got o see Jermaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords fame (which, if you're a fan of, we're automatically friends). It was only my second time seeing a taping, but I watch the show almost every day, and it was by far one of the funniest episodes I've ever seen. I'm not sure how they're going to edit it into 22 minutes, because we were there for two hours, hence why I got home late.
I'm staying up to write more, though, because I have to tell you about this dress. The kind folks over at Azazie sent it to me, and I'm in love. I wasn't too sure about choosing a dress since Azazie sells bridal and bridesmaids dresses, but the bridesmaid dresses are so cute that I knew I could find one that would work for any sort of dressy occasion. Plus, every dress on the site comes in a giant selection of colors and free custom sizing. Let's get my only two complaints out of the way, as they are minor; I was a little disappointed that this dress ended up looking more red when I ordered burgundy, but it's so vibrant and beautiful that I really can't complain. Even though I did custom sizing, the dress still doesn't fit perfectly, which is probably more on me than Azazie. The biggest issue is that the straps are too large (it's not noticeable in the photos) and would fit someone much taller than me better, but that shouldn't be too difficult to get altered.
Other than those two minor issues, I have nothing but good things to say about this dress and Azazie. The first thing I noticed is that it's incredibly well made. It's the kind of dress that will last me a while, and everything down to the garment bag it came in is amazing quality. Though I won't be wearing this in any weddings, for a $99 bridesmaid dress, it's a great choice. I'm hoping to wear it to a wedding, though, so I'm hoping it still fits relatively well by the time my friend Jeremy's wedding rolls around in July. Did I mention that this dress has pockets? Because it has pockets. I also want to mention how easy to navigate the Azazie website is. It's easy to filter by color, price, hem length, and more, which must be extremely helpful for those planning weddings. All in all, I'm more than impressed. As I inch closer to the middle of my '20s, I'm sure this dress will come in handy for the plethora of weddings I'll be attending.
I don't have a Valentine this year, nor do I really care about the holiday at all, but I have to admit that this would make a killer Valentine's Day outfit, wouldn't it?
