This post is a few nights merged into one, as I first wore this American Apparel floral dress for a Kendrick Lamar gig when the photo was taken above, and below is a video I filmed before I went on a night out a month later. I bought it after buying a lace dress I wanted for a while online, and when realising AA ships online orders all the way from America, I popped to the shop to buy it myself so I could have it to wear just in time. In the end I tried on this dress instead and walked away with it!
American Apparel clothing always fit my shape for bodycon (Topshop never does!) and I don't mind spending there because the quality is so long-lasting and the styles will tweak you in at all the right places, plus the colours are spot on. The flowers on this dress are a little '50s but the backless cut brings it right up to date, and I definitely want it in other colours. I tried on the neon yellow and - KAPOW - it was a wonder dress, but heading out in fluorescent bodycon would surely bring you catcalls you would not necessarily need! I'm hopefully about to book a late holiday to Ibiza with my friends so it would be perfect for then; let me know if you spot a 30% off deal from American Apparel any time soon! For reference, I got this dress in a medium and it was still rather form fitting! Size up gals.
