Monif C, Superstylin’ for SpringPosted: March 16, 2009
I previously mentioned that coral was my colour of the season and illustrated ideas of how to incorporate it into your wardrobe. Well here’s the addendum piece to that coral loving post. This super sexy dress has more going for it than just a great colour. The exposed zipper that I’ve seen on many a runway adds a definite edge and I like the modified body con shape; fitted but not skin tight. I’m not a big advocate for Spanx but I would certainly need a little help to pull this off. Its a shame I can’t walk into a store and try it on because I would love to see how I look in something as clingy as this.

In more Monif C news I spotted this dress that bears a striking resemblence to a certain inauguration ballgown worn by a certain first lady.
Its the ever popular Marilyn convertiable dress in a new longer length and it looks stunning.
Have you ever bought a Marilyn convertible dress from Monif C? How was it for you? I ask because its only available in one size to fit sizes 8- 24. I know the skirt section is the only fully formed part of the dress and the rest of the dress is constructed from ties that wrap around the body, but I don’t get how a size 8 “skirt” can also fit a size 24 body. Wouldn’t it just end up too tight around the middle? I guess that’s where the magic comes in and why this dress is popular. I’m intrigued.
