Keep it Poplin

10 Comments 02 June 2009

When I was in Miami at Womm-U last month I realized that I forgot one of the ensembles I had decided to wear to the opening reception. As you can imagine, this threw a total wrench in my plans, so I ran out to hit the stores on South Beach. On a whim, I ducked into an American Apparel store, just to take a quick look. Finding racks of cotton and bright colors I was skeptical about what I would find, until I pulled this adorable Poplin Cross-Front Dress off of the rack and slipped into the dressing room. I pulled it over my head, turned to look in the mirror, and fell in love. If you’ve never met me, you may be surprised to know that I’m rather tall — at 5’8″ I leave most people looking me straight in the eye, if not up. Thankfully, this dress didn’t come up obscenely short on me and is the perfect length for summer. I bought the same bright blue dress pictured here, but I don’t think the picture does the dress justice, as it’s much cuter than this in person. I paired mine with a wide, black elastic belt with a silver clasp, a pair of silver Steve Madden pumps, a silver clutch and voila! Insta-glam.

So what do you think? Have you shopped at American Apparel before for something other than t-shirts? Do you like their stuff? Feel free to share in the comments!

    I have never heard of it, let alone shopped there. The dress is really cute though. I only due dresses when I am forced to, which is only weddings and funerals (when forced).

    i love american apparel. their shirts are so great. basic and not too loaded with frills or trends that date you (of course, they do delve into the fads here and there. once i saw a zebra printed safari one piece that was just ugh, but most is totally cute)

    what a great dress! wish i felt comfortable wearing dresses. need to lose a bit before i can pull something like that off.
