SOOOOOO ... I've completely fallen in love with the designer French Connection =)
I've passed this designer's section in Bloomingdales hundreds of times but never gave it a chance!
..... until today.
Today after getting off work, I decided to check it out because I was eyeing this one dress
for the absolute longest time but never went to try it on.
I wish I had picture from their site of the particular one I fell in love with but all I have is
the picture of when I tried it on in the fitting room :(
In person you can see the color better. It's black with sparkly silver detail and patterns.
The size I'm wearing in my picture is a size 2 but it didn't fit the way I really wanted it to =(
The bottom was so loose! And worst of all ... this dress doesn't come in a 0!
I almost shed a tear at the register when I found out so I had to put it down and not buy it as planned.

Now for the dress that I actually bought =D
I picked this dress up on my way to the fitting room to try on the black dress above.
I actually thought I wouldn't even like it but much to my surprise, I'm in love with this dress!
This dress fits amazing!
There are padded shoulders built into this dress (which I was completely feining for),
and also featured a cute little peep hole in the back.
The size I'm wearing in this picture is a 0, and it definitely fit true-to-size.
With a pair of black heels or even a cute little blazer, this dress will do it.
I couldn't resist ....... so I bought it =)
Basically, my closet will be seeing more of the French Connection label very soon!
I love how tailored their fits are. Their dresses aren't S, M, or L.
They run with number sizes (0, 2, 4, etc.)
