Wish Review - The Black And Purple Floral Dress

Happy Friday 😃 Are you as excited as me that the weekend is finally here?! I know some of you still have half a day left to work but I promise it'll be over before you know it 😉 Have you finally decided on what to do this weekend? I'm about to head out to do some shopping and see what kind of awesome deals I can find to share with you. Before I get to that I would like to tell you about this beautiful dress I recently purchased and whether or not I feel it's a good deal for you...

I love shopping online and recently I've become somewhat addicted to Wish...well if I'm being honest I've already maxed out my credit card buying stuff from there 😯 I've mentioned this company in a few past blog posts but for my new readers I'll explain what it is. Wish is a website, that also has an awesome app, where you can buy anything from clothes and shoes to phone cases and tablets at really low prices. It's really amazing to see a beautiful blouse and find out it's only $5 or so. The only downside is everything you order is being shipped from China so it may take awhile to get to you so you have to be patient 😑 Not one of my better qualities I must say lol. But once you start clicking away at all the amazing deals they have I promise you'll be hooked too. So what did I buy this time?...

I was scrolling through the Wish app with my mom when I came across this gorgeous black dress with purple flowers for only $8. Mom got more excited than I did actually and used her famous "if I was still young and skinny like you I'd wear that" line which of course made me feel obligated to buy it 😆 I wanted the purple flowers but this dress does come with red or blue flowers as well. I was a little unsure about this purchase simply because I wasn't sure of sizing but I'm glad I went with my gut instinct and ordered a small. When I got the dress in the mail it was a little thinner than I thought it would be and there was a huge peice of material attached and hanging from the bodice. After several minutes of playing with it I figured out it's a shawl!! You cross it in front and drape it over your shoulders. I think the website should make this particular detail more clear but overall I was happy with my purchase considering it was super cheap and I got a ton of compliments on it 😍 So how did I style this beauty?...

This dress has an extremely dressy feel and I wanted to stick with that theme so I decided to wear my beautiful purple heels. I had totally forgotten about them when I ordered the dress but remembered them while browsing through all the shoe boxes in my closet. Score 😄 I felt like a princess in this dress which is exactly how every woman should feel when dressing it up 👗 If heels aren't for you then you could always wear a cute pair of ballet flats or sandals instead. Also if the shawl is too much I'm sure a good seamstress could easily remove it. This is a great dress for a nice dinner date with your sweetie or to wear to church which is what I did. I think this would be a great buy for anyone just make sure you read the sizing chart and follow it. If you'd like to recreate this look I've linked these items below. Note: these shoes are no longer available so I've linked a similar item...


Isn't this dress absolutely beautiful? Which color would you choose: red, blue, or purple? How would you style it differently? I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping 🛍

Goodbye for now...Fashionable Tigress ❤
