Mint chiffon dress - c/o Queens Wardrobe, bag - Aldo, shoes - Guess, bracelets - Aldo, watch - Style & Co., sunnies - Fossil

This beautiful mint chiffon dress is from Queen's Wardrobe. Despite it being super windy, it didn't fly up, which tells me that not only is it visually beautiful, but the cut is perfectly practical. Short and and doesn't fly up in windy days? Great :)

The material of the dress made me realize I should bring up (what I think is) a very important "tool" every girl should have if they care about their clothes, and don't like wrinkles in their clothes. I'm talking about a steamer! Do you have a one? This is the one I have:
Photobucket
It is the SteamFast Upright Garment Steamer #SF-407 - Garment Steamers. It works well and is not too bulky. The only thing I would say it needs is, like my last steamer had (which one of my sisters broke by putting fabric softener in it to help her take the wall paper off her walls), is a hanger setup on the steamer much like this one, or this one. Otherwise you have to make your own setup or just steam the clothes at the closet, where they already hang. Steamers are a wonderful thing when you have light, delicate fabrics that can't be ironed. I don't even know if it's possible to burn your clothes or ruin them in any way with a steamer. Check it out, and I definitely recommend getting one. I don't think you'll regret it, as in my case it has just about completely replaced the iron, unless I need creases in my dress pants and such :)

P.S. I wanted to ask you guys: I put up an average of 8 - 9 photos every outfit post. Do you think that's too many, too few, or just right? I would appreciate your feedback, thanks!

  5. Hey Jess!♥

    That dress is insanely gorgeous on you!! The color is so beautiful!!! It looks great on you!! At first I was like "oh man, there's gonna be a pic of it being blow up" because it looks loose and flowly, then I read your paragraph about it staying down and was like "ohhhh lucky!" hahaha

    That's good you're allergic to alcohol I think, hahaha You save a lot of money that way! And all your friends is guaranteed to have a DD lol.. :) :) I do not drink much myself, I think I spoiled it when I was 15/16 and would drink to "get drunk".. what a stupid ass teenager I was, lol! So now even just the smell of alcohol makes me think back to the burning sensation in my throat and then throwing up, yuck!

    As for the photos, I think they are a good amount. You should put the ones you like up! With more photos I can see more detail of your outfit! And you do such a good job at the details too. Like your shoes... but I am NOT brave enough, nor will I EVER be, to show photos of my nastaaay feet, lol... I don't need to give people heart attacks, if people saw my feet I would get petitioned to take my blog down, for real. haha

    Also thanks for that PRO TIP about the steamer. I never even thought of that because I never had one growing up.. it makes sense. I always wondered how your clothes were so dang wrinkle free! lol I will have to stalk Target and find one there :)

    Also, thanks for your lovely comments:) I thought about the whole store thing. I even set up a Shopping Cart on my bfs webhost and edit it to match my blog, but then I didn't have anything to sell. lol.. Maybe :)

  8. Oooh, love that minty number! The dress is gorgeous <3
    And wow, allergic to alcohol? Haha, maybe its a blessing in disguise.
    Also, I use about the same amount of photos, and I think you've got it just right. Since they're varied and aren't always at the same distance and include close ups, 8-9 photos look good :)

  28. I love this dress, the colour is lush! I actually wore a skirt in this colour today!! Great choice! Oh and I totally couldn't live without a steamer either! I love it! So handy. Sometimes I even steam while I'm wearing the clothes, have burnt myself a few times though!!!

  29. mmm mint chocolate chip! what a pretty color. looks great on you. I see the pastels showing up in your wardrobe :) That's weird that you could wear earrings before but now are not able. I know a few people who can't wear earrings at all, except only real gold. They get allergic to everything else. So, so weird. Your purse matches this outfit perfectly :) Thanks for your comment.

  30. That dress looks lovely on you! I was thinking to myself it's too short and flowy & the wind might blow it up?!? HAHAH ....but then again, good thing it doesn't LOL

    I think 8-10 photos are reasonable but if you like every single ones, then just post all of them! As I'm sure they all look great! ;p

    Would those steamer iron out the wrinkles/creases on pleated skirts without ruining the pleats?

    As for the large photos, sigh.....haven't gotten around to it yet! Need to get ready to go out soon! LOL So any guys come up to you this time? I would be surprised if there's no one with this sexy outfit! LOL :D

  32. I think it's a bit much: maybe 5-6 photos? I read a lot of blogs per day and don't have time to be looking at so many pictures, so I usually just skim when there are too many! Nontheless, this outfit is spectacular!!! the mint looks stunning on you. I'm a new GFC and Bloglovin' follower! your blog is beautiful <3

  53. The mint chiffon dress is absolutely gorgeous on you! I also have a steamer, which is so great on silks and ruffles especially:) I think 8~9 photos per outfit is just perfect, not too much nor little!

  55. i think that it's just the right amount of photos because you put from multiple angles and closeups + far away...so you can keep as is far as i'm concerned :D

    this dress is marvelous, i just LOVE the color! that bag though, is my absolute favorite thing here! it's brilliant

  56. You look absolutely gorgeous and the mint colour is my favorite now :) Btw i don't know why but you remind me of dark haired Kristina from Kayture. Both stunning!
