It always makes me so so happy when a brand I truly love reaches out to me to collaborate… and I have two posts this week for which that is the case! Be still, my lil blogger heart.
I discovered Oasis in college. I wanted to wear dresses that were flattering, well-made, cute, and wouldn’t break the bank. I loved shopping with Oasis because a) they fit the criteria outlined above and b) unlike all of my Urban Outfitters-clad friends (FYI, Urban was the only store in Ithaca when I was in school!), I never showed up to a party wearing the same thing as somebody else. Win win in my book. Soooo when they reached out to me to collaborate I pulled a Jane Bennet and was like “yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!”
Oasis challenged me to spread color, print, and happiness… the moment I spotted this pink fit and flare dress (and that darling tassel clutch!), I knew I would have no problems accomplishing my quest.
What I’m Wearing:
This look would be perfect to wear to a rehearsal dinner or – with heels – even a wedding. Definitely vacation-ready. I’m currently plotting my summer travels and this whole outfit – particularly the tassel clutch – will definitely be in my suitcase, no matter where I go!
One thing you should note: this dress runs super small. If you’re in between sizes, definitely size up. I usually wear a size 6/8 in dresses but I’m wearing the 10 in the photos above (and it’s a still a bit snug in the chest). Thankfully, being a fit-and-flare, this dress is seriously roomy in the hips and bum… but I would still recommend going up a size or two just to make sure you’ll be comfortable!
Now back to the travels: I’m actually jetting out of Dallas tomorrow for a trip to Orlando. Half work, half play – my mom, one of my best friends, and her mom are all meeting me in Orlando on Friday for a weekend at Disney World and Harry Potter World!!! BE STILL MY HEART I AM SO STINKING EXCITED! Despite my travels, I’ll still be posting every day this week (be sure to check back in tomorrow for another awesome collaboration!), but be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@akkushner) so you can keep up with my adventures in real time!
