Self-Portrait: paint with stars x Sammydress

Recently, the team at Sammydress very kindly contacted me with the idea of a product review, and I was happy to collaborate with them. I selected this simple black dress, drawn to the cut-out sleeves, and I was really curious to see how the actual item would fit. About two weeks later, the dress arrived, and the size seemed to be perfect. It has quite a sleek fit, and it's actually quite short as a dress, so you'd have to wear tights, shorts, or pants with it (I opted for some black tights). I also tried adding a colorful scarf with the piece. Now that it's spring, I can see myself wearing this dress out with a light jacket. It arrived just in time, as I've really been in need of some new profile photos but haven't had a proper excuse to set up and take them - thanks to this dress, I could create a decent look that fit with my new red glasses and shorter haircut :) (I swear, I keep thinking I will grow it out, but it keeps getting shorter and shorter. But having short hair is FUN :)

The only negative points I can think of so far are that the neck part is a bit tight, so it's a bit of a squeeze to get it on over your head. Also, the sleeves are quite a slim fit. But I'm saying this as a person who typically loves stretch and airy - those of you who are used to tights and other fitted clothing should be fine with it.

Sammydress, thank you so much for reaching out and for the awesome dress!
