This dress literally came in the mail like an hour or two before I decided I was wearing it to my best friend’s birthday dinner. I’m a sucker for t-shirt dresses, especially black ones, and I had some store credit from Motel Rocks that I decided to use. I’m not a fan of the “cold shoulder” trend…I think it’s completely overdone. Something about this is a little different though. I’m think I’m really attracted to its angular cut.

I bought a ton of these little flower crowns from Spitalfields Market in East London. I haven’t been able to wear them because they look super wonky with my curly hair, so I decided to seize the opportunity and wear one.

Don’t forget, get 20% off of your purchase at Motel Rocks using my code “RadicalDarling”. It never expires!

Also, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim starts tonight! I’m too excited. Keep updated with me over the next week via my Twitter (@RadicalDaring) or my Instagram, (@MelaniePatterson_). I’ll be attending a few shows and getting together with some of the bloggers in my area!

I’m not a fan of the cold shoulder either but I love this and your hair looks phenomenal. Nice to see you even though it was hectic and crazy because I was looking for someone. Wah.

Thank you very much! Cold shoulder is sooo done but whatever, couldn’t pass up this dress. It was good to see you, too! I went on Monday and was hoping to spot you but it was far less crowded altogether. Oh well…another time :)

i love your style!!
may i ask what size you got for the savannah dress?


Melanie November 3, 2013 at 9:10 pm

Hi! Thank you so much! I bought the dress in S but I match up to XS on their size chart. I was concerned with the length so I sized up and it worked out for me. I’m 5’6″, for reference.
