Hey Boo’s! I collaborated with Universal Standard to bring you their Geneva Dress and Obi Belt.  I will start off by saying that their pieces seem to run a bit large but when I saw this asymmetric dress I knew it was the one for me!

After looking at the sizing chart and the dimensions of the models I decided to go with a petite small. Style Tip –> When ordering online check to see if the site has the models dimensions.  That way you will have an idea of how the clothing will fit you in comparison to the models.

Since I’m 5′ 5″ and the model was 5′ 11″  (she was wearing a small = size 14/16) I ordered a petite 2xs. I think a regular xsmall would have been too baggy. In the end, it just depends on what type of look you are trying to achieve but always be aware of sizing when ordering online!

The Geneva dress is meant to have a loose comfortable fit and they definitely nailed that objective on the head. The material is super soft and stretchy; it’s made of 95% Peruvian cotton and 7% Elastane.  I love the color and versatility of the dress. It feels like I am wearing an oversized comfy shirt.Universal Standard Geneva Dress | What to Wear With Yellow | Yellow Dress | How To Style Yellow Dress

The Obi belt is something to be desired. The plus is, it’s reversible! It has a satin side and a matte side.  Style Tip –> Items that are reversible give you double the styling options.  The negative, I don’t like how it fits around my waist and it’s not wide enough. Hence the asymmetric styling.  I feel like it would fit much better on someone with a larger waist because when I tied it the strings went down to my calves (EEK). This is what a true obi belt should look like but there’s nothing wrong with a remix.

Overall, the price point of both pieces seem a bit high for me (I gotta keep it real) but I do love the comfort and asymmetric cut of the dress. Ok, ladies, that’s all I have for today.  Let me know which look you love best in the comments box below.  Have a great week and remember…

 

THERE’S ALWAYS TIME TO INVEST IN YOU!
