You don’t need to know me for very long to discover that I love girly twirly dresses. The bigger the twirl factor, the better! Although I love my body conscious dresses, I always feel super feminine when I wear a dress that swishes and swirls as I walk. I mean come on, a dress that is this twirl-able is so much more fun!
Aren’t the hues on this Oasap dress gorgeous? The splash of colors almost reminded me of Monet’s, “The artist’s garden at Giverny.”

This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge (PFC #17): Candy Colorized is hosted by the talented and a fellow DIY enthusiast Sew Petite Gal.
The Challenge: Candy Colorized
“Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces. Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.”
I love me some colors but randomly picking from a bowl of candy and combining the colors into an outfit can be risky…and possibly scary-looking. So when I picked these colors, you can only imagine the horror on my face… I can see it now: bright blue jeans, yellow top, red blazer and do-do brown bag. I’m a risk taker but this outfit will put me into clown land.
Luckily this dress came to the rescue, ok so I kinda fail in the red vs. pink department but if you close one eye and squint the other eye really hard, the red really looks like pink! :)
I hope you enjoyed this post! Don’t forget to check out the other ladies who participated! xo

You’ve done it again! I looooove this outfit! The colors are marvelous and the pictures came out so well! Love the out of focus candy too.
You’re making me want to work out my legs so that I can wear a mini to showcase them. Your short lengths were scary to me before and now they’re making me want to push the envelope too! <3
A Preponderance of Fashion

One of my favorite!! Love the dress so much and wow it’s super afforable! I hope you don’t mind but I think I will be ordering this dress :D I am also in love with your Valentinos!
I love this dress!!! It’s so adorable…the perfect summer look!
I am in love with that dress!!! Fabulous!!! :)
wonderful twirly dress and great heels.
I am intensely in love with that beautiful dress! From the classic swingy, full skirt style (how very 1950s!), to the unique, almost watercolor-esque splash colors, and the gorgeous criss-cross cutout in the back. I love how the gold belt (looking for one myself, actually!) cinches at the waist, and those VALENTINOS are mad beautiful!
Fantastic job on your take of the PFC! :D
Love, love, love
WOW simply stunning! This dress looks like so much fun and those shoes! They are fabulous! I’m glad they made themselves in your arms or rather on yout feet! :) Love ya girl and love the twirling photos! Too cute! Haha
OMG that dress is amazing! Where is it from??!!
These shoes are to die for! I can’t wait to see more posts on them :)
This is dress is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I too love bandage dresses but there’s something about a dress with full skirts that makes them irresistible. Terrific job on this challenge, the colors you picked were hard to work with!
