One of the fun parts about my sister's wedding was that I got to get a new dress! After trying on many dresses we decided on the Signature Wrap Dress by Butter by Nadia. It. is. fabulous. Its pretty simple really: a blue green jersey circle skirt to the knees, with two long, wide pieces attached to the top. But the exciting part is that you can wrap those two pieces all different ways, and so potentially could wear a different dress every time!
I actually tried it on first with my mom at Calypso, but ended up buying it months later at Neda in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. After trying one on in the store, they let me look through some swatches and pick out a different color. The order came to the store a few days later. Its not cheap, but the dress really looks amazing on. Its one of those pieces that can look great on almost any body.
They come in jersey and satin material, and in a long and short length. And in all different colors-- there're are even some striped ones now. There are some ridiculously cute tutorial videos on the site to help you figure out how to wrap it. Though once you get the hang of it, its pretty simple.
I was a bit worried about being a bit too boob-alicious for the wedding. Many of the styles have an open back which isn't so conducive to bra wearing. Normally I wouldn't have worried much about that, but this was a daytime wedding afterall. I ended up wrapping it the first way, slapped on a NuBra (it sticks to you, so no straps) (it was surprisingly comfortable, but that's a different post,) and was ready to go. I had about 7 minutes to get ready and this dress didn't fail me. It was a bit boob-alicious, but what can you do? I changed it up for the reception later on-- more of a halter top.
Apparently a Butter by Nadia store is coming soon to Brooklyn! Yay!
