This dress has been hanging around since March. It's another one from OASAP, and true to form, had all kinds of fit issues. To wear this dress, your bust, waist and hips would all need to be the same measurement.

I will say that aside from the cut, this jacquard dress is actually of decent quality. The material is very thick and in addition to the jacquard inspired print, the material is woven with a jacquard pattern. Its partially lined and pretty well constructed.

Because of those factors and how much I loved the print, I decided to put in the effort to take in the waist, give this dress some actual shape, and finally wear it!

To those of you who celebrate, I hope you have a happy Memorial Day!

  2. The print is so cute!! So annoying when things don't fit properly! GRR!
    (that Joie dress I bought is just way too big I realized....(good thing I left the tags on it, haha)

  3. beautiful dresslove the print, I would off done the same thing fix it and wearit!

  4. That stinks that the fit was way off but I'm glad you decided to tailor it. The bright colors are so pretty for summer!

  5. That's a bummer about the fit, but it LOOKS great on you! I love the bag too.

  6. I wish I could have seen the before dress because it looks lovely now! The colors are fantastic and gorgeous on you!

  7. That OASAP... The cut of their clothes is enough to drive a sane person crazy. If the pieces aren't crazy short (and this is coming from me, who is all of 5'2"), then the cut is straight from top to bottom. At least in this case that meant you were able to take the waist in... instead of needing to let other parts out (silver lining?) because the dress really does have a lovely print and the colours suit you beautifully.

  8. That is a lovely , lovely dress(you look good in it as you wear it with confidence:)!


  9. I love this dress, Lyddie! Now it fits you perfectly.

  10. Oh my gosh that dress is so beautiful!! I love the vibrant colors! So perfect with your gorgeous bag :)


  11. The print and cut of it is super cute Lydia. Your hair looks so cute up! Love the jacket with it.

  12. Well damn. I hate it when that happens. However, true to your natural form you have made it work!

  13. I love everything about this look! Great idea to piece it all together with that denim jacket! So cute!

  14. That is a fun dress! I can see why it'd be hard to get out and style in a plethora of different ways, though. There are some dresses like that. But with the bag and jean jacket, you definitely make it casual!

    Have a great rest of your week, my sweet Lydia!

  15. I loved the dress and aaa I'm in love with that bag, loved the design and the color <3 Love xx :)


  16. Despite the issues, you made this dress work. Love the print and your tote bag is fabulous!


  17. You did a great job on the dress! I love the print and your matching tote.

  18. Well I think the extra work really paid off! It looks perfect on you and makes me want to head to the beach!

  20. I need that bag in my life!! Absolutely LOVE it!

  21. That's a beautiful dress! I'll have to remember your fit issues if I ever order from OSAP.

  22. THAT bag is FAB!! And the dress - gorgeous!!

  23. That dress is so so beautiful! Love the pattern!

  24. You look beautiful in that dress and I'm impressed with your commitment to it. I received one piece from Oasap way back before there were many reviews and it was so shoddy that I refused to post it. It's a shame the material wasn't as great as yours was. That would have been more incentive to have it tailored.

  25. I also try to make all efforts possible before giving up on a garment - I think it looks amazing.
    The print is just really nice and the jean jacket works perfect with it..
