dress: joe fresh // bag: 3.1 phillip lim for target // shoes: zara // necklace: c/o: oia jules // watch: marc by marc jacobs 

I'm not going to lie, this bodycon dress is completely out of my comfort zone.
 Basically anything that clings to my body makes me kinda run for the hills. When I saw this Joe Fresh dress when I was home last week my mom convinced me to try it on. I'm kinda glad I did because although it clings to the body it's not unflattering! Maybe I've become a whole new person who loves bodycon dresses! (I wish I could add that surprised emoji face on here haha).

Do you have any helpful tips on how to pull off bodycon? (spanx? haha)  I'd love to know! 

Have a great Monday! 


  1. Damn girl! You look awesome in this dress, it's super flattering and I love that the midi length adds a sophistication to a body con dress! So gorgeous on you!

  2. Such a great look on you Melanie! You have an amazing bod - anything bodycon would look amazing on you, but this dress is stunning! I love that it's all grey!

  3. I absolutely love simple body con dresses...I have a couple grey ones that are my most comfortable dresses to wear! There's something about a grey simple dress that I love! They're so easy to style! You look fabulous in this :)

  4. You look great in this dress Melanie! I'm a bit weary of wearing tight dresses myself, but I bought a pair of Spanx so I may change my mind and venture into bodycon land soon, like you! ; )

  5. It really does look great on you! Hoorah for being brave and just going for it!

  6. Haha, I bought a cute little stripe one from TNA that my husband LOVES, but I'm still trying to get used to showing every's just so uncomfortable! Currently wearing it as a mini with a nice baggy sweater on top ;)

  7. Wow, you are looking AH-MAZE-ING in that dress! I don't like to wear anything too form fitting either, but you can totally pull this look off. Sometimes it's nice to get outside the comfort zone a bit!
