New York Cat-Walking


Salut mes amis! I'm cat-walking on top of the world (or at least on top of NYC) to present my first ever style post in collaboration with RackStyles.com* -- a brand new online clothing retailer dedicated to delivering quality designs for less, straight to your door!

And now, on to the fun part!!
I'm wearing the Violetta Band-Aid Dress -- a perfect summer staple for any fun-loving (NY) city-dweller. I have to admit, because of my physique, I MUST try things on before purchasing, so I hardly ever shop online. I'm petite (5 ft 2 in) but curvy, and since most clothes are made to fit a standard figure, I often experience a hard time finding clothing, especially dresses. With this RackStyles dress, however, I am officially a believer -- it fits impeccably and is really well-made. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!

Bandage (Band-Aid) Dresses have been made famous by popular celebs like Blake Lively, Katy Perry, Sofia Vergara and of course, the Kardashians. The original Hervé Léger bandage dresses run into the thousands, but the dress I'm wearing is under $30, can you believe it?! 
I particularly love the playful back opening, and though it requires a backless bra or none at all, the tightly woven material of this dress gives plenty of support even for the larger busts.
Because of their tight elastic fit and excellent support capabilities, bandage dresses are ideal for curvier figures. I love the fact that this dress is form-fitting without being skimpy. It shows off some skin, but does it in a nice, delicate sort of way, so I feel totally comfortable wearing it around town.
 
To cover up for the evening or even take this dress into the fall season, I'm wearing a cropped three-quarter sleeve jacket (my own). This look almost has a sexy business casual effect... like I'm about to take you to an open house! lol

Shoes: Zara
Jacket: H&M
Bracelet: Banana Republic
Watch: Lacoste
Couldn't leave y'all without a couple of good ol' candids!!
Check out RackStyles.com and join me in the bandage dress parade!


I appreciate your comments and welcome all questions <3


Bisous,

  38. Omg Maryam! You are going to sell that dress out! It is absolutley gorgeous but it looks sensational on you .. I went to almost purchase one straight away but if its that short on you (the perfect length!) and you're 5'2...and I'm almost 6 foot, it would barely cover my bum :( :( Shame!!

    1. Giiiirl, they have other sizes lol!! Plus, the top part is definitely meant for a taller person.. the open back is really a genius design because it can fit a range of sizes and proportions. I think a medium would fit you well :))

  53. Gorgeous Maryam! This dress is such a perfect colour on you too, lavender really works for you! Heheh while I'm more averagely endowed in the bust department, I can see otherwise we have similar body types - short, curvy, and a bubble butt! LOL Love to see a lady I think of as beautiful and attractive and realize I might bear some resemblance to her - not to mention when that person has such a beautiful personality too! Rock on M! <3
