I added this dress immediately to the ‘Currently Loving’ section on the front page of my blog after seeing it on the Mango website a while ago. And it finally went on sale. I love its femininity in the cut and the fabric, yet it still has potential to be styled in a more masculine way. Imagine a black leather jacket and some lace-up boots! Here, I have decided to wear my Stuart Weizman boots instead of some heels to keep the exposed skin to its minimal since Seattle is still quite chilly. Soon a denim jacket and a pair of white sneakers are nothing but what I will be pairing with all of my flowy, satin, chiffon, floral, and feminine dresses. I love the color and the dot printed design, the elastic long sleeves, the bow detailing at neck. Side note, I absolutely adore my new Kozha Number bag, and I have an entire blog post where this bag made its first debut here on the blog.

Throughout the years, I find Mango sizing is odd, especially in dressed pants and tops. The corduroy pants that came in the same shipment of this dress, size US XS, but they were huge on me. I also ordered a pair of nude and red heels, size US 7,5, but they were also big on me. They do often do knock-offs of other designer brands (like Zara), and I am not a fan of that. But I do make a purchase some time, only when their stuff goes on sale. I throughout enjoyed the online shopping experience as well as how fast their shipping these days has become. Mango is a cooler Zara for sure, but I am just wishing they would one day reopen their storefronts. The in-person shopping experience is nothing you can beat, and I wish to try on and have a good feel of the fabric prior to making a purchase. That’s all!
