This dress was super light and airy, perfect for hot summer days. It's the first time I've worn a hankerchief hem, but I liked the flowy, twirly effect it provided. This reminded me of the tie-dye shirts we used to make in the summers of my youth. Super bright, super saturated, super swirly- I'm clearly super smitten!

I'll be honest, I usually send my Gwynnie Bee dresses back after one wear, so I can get my hands on something else, but I'm keeping this one to wear a couple more times!
After my most recent complaint about "chub-rub", the ladies at Bandelettes offered to send me a sample of their inner thigh guards to try out and review for you- my fellow chafing sufferers. The idea is simple. Imagine wearing the upper band of a pair of thigh highs- keeps your thighs from rubbing together, right? Well, that's what Bandelettes are, except better!
I hate wearing thigh highs because they are constantly rolling down.However, Bandelettes are about twice the size of the band on traditional thigh highs and have a double-row of stay-put silicone. I wore them all day in the southern heat and humidity, and they didn't budge! In fact, I totally forgot about them completely. The only thing I missed was the stomach smoothing capabilities of my Spanx or bike shorts. However, when it's 90 degrees or hotter outside, it was wonderful to not feel suffocated with heavy Lycra.
The price point of $14.99 is very reasonable as well. I got the nude pair for review, and I will definitely be buying a few more pairs to keep in rotation. I pretty much live in dresses and skirts, so this is perfect for me. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
