Buggin' Out

Another day, another animal-print shirt dress. So predictable! This particular style of dress is really out of the ordinary for me, and it is pretty impractical. See that not so crisp cotton and the wrinkles in the fabric? That's why I never buy cotton dresses like this. I'm allergic to ironing.  See those perfectly folded cuffs? The first time I wash it, I will never get those sleeves folded as neatly. But, oh, the print.

Shirt Dress- Gap (on sale and 25% off purchases!)


I couldn't resist that sweet ladybug print. The ladybug is pretty much the only bug that doesn't freak me out. I mean I know they can be serious pests, but come on! They are so cute- not slimy, won't sting you, pretty much the perfect bug. Which in turn makes it the perfect bug dress!

I have a solution for the cuffs! While they are still perfectly folded put a stitch or two every few centimeters to hold the cuff in place permanently, then after washing leave the dress flat to dry. I *should* work!

I am just a smidge under 5'6". The belt shortens it just a little.

I am also allergic to ironing. Downy Wrinkle Release is my best friend...haha. I love that pattern in a dress. I hope the Gap keeps up with the trend of cute prints.

Love the ladybug print. Conversational prints are the best. And I'm with you on ironing - I avoid clothing that needs ironing as much as possible.

Love the shape of the dress, but the print... ladybugs are still bugs, and they totally freak me out. There´s no way I could wear this dress, I´d feel they´re gonna start walking all over me any minute

Elena said...

Haha... allergic to ironing-well said Katie!!! In Russia we used to iron everything, even bed sheets-ughhh I hated this-was such a relief to come here and discover that wrinkled dress is ok:)) This lady bug print is the cutest-great find dear!

The print on the dress is soooooooooooooo cute, I can see why you bought it! I'm with you, ladybugs are the only bugs that don't freak me out. Even butterflies scare me! hahaha.

Do I burst your bubble and tell you that YES some types of lady bugs can bite? I can attest to it, I was bitten during an infestation, AND I am allergic! I had no idea that some of them are mean!

Love that dress Katie. So cute! And I am with ya sistah - ironing... so not for me! (Isn't that what the dryer is for - taking your wrinkled clothes smashed into your too small closet and fluffing them up for a minute or two?) :)

Hailey said...

That is a super cute pattern! And your lipstick matches perfectly. :-) I don't like that material either because it wrinkles so easily. I hate to constantly plug in my steamer. lol

Jocelyn said...

I never iron, haha. But you look great in this dress!

Brynn said...

Ew bugs and ironing are the worst. Seriously. But you look SO CUTE in this dress! It may be impractical for you, but the silhouette is perfect for you!

grownandcurvywoman said...

Such a fun print! You look so cute in these dresses!

Crystal said...

I'm allergic too, haha! Max does the ironing here... it's about the only inside chore he does but he owns it, lol. And I love you in shirtdresses... this one is so cute!

I saw a woman wearing this very dress the other day and made her very uncomfortable by exclaiming, "I saw that dress on a style blog. I posted it!" But, really, who wouldn't exclaim over those lady bugs?
