Neon dress challenge

I thought a neon dress would be a really fun piece to wear in the summer, so when OASAP gave me an opportunity to select something, I was drawn right to it.

But unless this is your first time at my blog, you may have noticed it's not me wearing it. Despite the measurements listed on the product page, this dress was much too small for me, so I offered it up to my little sister, and she agreed to model it.

The site describes this dress as a size small/medium, but I would call it extra small, and it is the only size offered. It's also a bit see-through, which did prove to be a challenge.

Fortunately the other item I received from OASAP, the bow bracelet, fits just fine.

  1. So beauty just runs in your family? So unfair! She is gorgeous! Too bad it doesn't fit you, I think you would look gorgeous in it!

  2. I know, I had the same problem with OASAP.I found their measurements incorrect and quality can let dawn as well as customer service. But despite everything that dress looks lovely on your beautiful sister and bracelet is sweet.
    p.s. Name day is quite popular in Europ.

  3. The color of that dress is great.I also just love the style of it from the sleeves to the sinched waist and the zipper at the back. Its a great design. Too bad about the sizing tho.

  6. That's too bad about the fit (I always size WAY up when I order from them, like large when I usually wear a small or medium, because I find their items always run small). It is a really cute dress though...and your sister looks great in it!

  16. Your sister looks beautiful. I am sorry the dress didn't fit. It is a really lovely color and shape. I have been loving neons lately. They are great statement pieces.

  18. Your sister is too cute Lydia! She did a great job. Too bad it ran small. Such a love style & color. I'll have to take a look at OASAP's website.

  19. I already thought that wasn't you, haha. Your sister looks lovely in the dress, too bad it's see through. Have you got a slip dress that maybe came with another dress or a skirt? I use the slip dress that came with a white dress I once bought under all my see-through clothing. Anyway, you sister did a great job at modelling the dress for us! She looks adorable in this neon number! xo

  22. How nice to get to "meet" your sister :) She looks great wearing that dress, hope you're not all too sad it didn't fit you. It sucks to receive something that isn't as it was described on the website!

  30. That's a really cute dress! I was given a few items by OASAP, but I stopped promoting them because the quality of the items I received was pretty subpar. Looks like you got lucky with these two items!

  33. Hey, Lyddie... you look different! You get a new hairdo or somethin?

    ;)

    Your sister is looking adorable in this dress. I'm loving it paired with the turquoise! So much fun color, wheeee~!

    Hee hee. Good thing your bracelet fits just fine! That's one reason why I'm weary of ordering things from the internet... sometimes a small is a super extra small, or sometimes it's the other way around! Sigh. Sizes are weird.

  35. This is cute! I actually wanted Nnenna to wear one of the SheInside dresses for me, but ran out of time :(

    Too bad this dress doesn't fit... I like it! I felt that way about my SheInside dresses. Sigh.

  36. What a beautiful dress - and model! It`s a shame about the size, I can definitely sympathise after my Choies shorts debacle... I really wish I`d had someone even more petite than me to model them on my behalf! Your sister looks lovely in the dress, and I know you would have, too :)
