See, I have this problem where Selena Gomez has unwittingly become someone whose dresses I steal.
… not in like the Bling Ring way.
I’m not like breaking into houses to raid celebrities’ closets — it’s more of an Ariana Grande, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it,” metaphorical stealing kind of way.
No, this time I did not find the exact dresses she wore.
… but still, I shelled out $650 USD for a dress from the same brand Selena loves.
With my wallet nowhere near her size, was it worth it?
Three Graces London Dress SIZING
For reference, I’m 5’5.75” and weigh 115-117 lbs.
My Three Graces London Soleil dress is a size UK 8.
So many brands are putting out dresses with smocking, yet smocking can result in, well, totally stretching out (hi, Hill House Home’s Ellie dress!).
As a result, I was hesitant about ordering this dress in a UK 8 — however, with all these straps in the back, it’s easy to adjust how tight you want the top.
… and you’ll want it tight, because otherwise there’ll be a lil side boob hanging out (if you’re into that though, then more power to you!).
During lockdowns when we couldn’t travel so far without so many fears, this Three Graces London dress offers an English escape at its finest.
Thousands of miles away, this dress mentally sweeps you away to the British countryside on a warm summer day.
The name “Soleil dress,” takes you to a sun shining day alone.
Embroidered with flowers along its swishing skirt…
… and the shirred bodice that’s sure to keep your tummy and top in place after a stop at the pub.
This is the sweetest little dress there ever was…
PROS & CONS
–Pockets: Enough said.
–Embroidery: No laser-printing, just good old fashioned floral embroidery all over this Three Graces London dress.
–Hang strings: No worries about the dress stretching out when you hang it up, because it has hang strings, baby!
–Bottom lined: You could potentially wear black underwear with it due to the skirt part being lined.
–Quality/thoughtfulness: Pockets, embroidered flowers, hang strings, and the overall general high-quality feel of this dress justifies its high price tag.
… I mean, just the price, but there’s not a lot we can do about that.
Between my inherent Irish Catholic guilty conscious and the fact that it’s just plain illegal to break into anyone’s home (let alone steal, I could never be part of the Bling Ring.
Instead, I’ll simply admire Selena Gomez’s dresses on her.
… and with all the money we save by not having to deal with lawyer’s fees, we can purchase the item if we really love them.
