GUESS | Tiesto NYT LYF Collection – Studded Zip Dress

Last Friday I tweeted that I had been a bad girl and purchased something from GUESS. Whenever they have a sale, I always jump on it because we all know how crazy expensive their stuff can be. So when I received the email saying everything on clearance was an additional 40% off, I made sure to stop by my local GUESS store to see if I could find something.

I wasn't looking for anything in particular. I just looked through what they had and picked up a couple of dresses to try on, just for fun. The first one I picked up was the Aztec Caviar-Beaded Dress. I loved the way it looked, but not enough that I would buy it. Plus, I already have 3 other dresses that are similar to this that still have tags on them. The second dress I picked up was the Studded Zip Dress from the Tiesto NYT LYF Collection. To be honest, this is one of those dresses that looks really strange on the hanger, but I was really curious as to how it would look so I tried it on without any intentions of purchasing it. I obviously didn't follow through on that...

Like I said, it looks weird on the hanger, but it actually looks awesome when you try it on. Trust me, haha.

Retail Price: $158, on sale for $139.99 plus an addt'l 40% off

The material is like stretch denim and though the material itself is nice and light, because the dress has the studded shoulder with shoulder pads, it's a bit heavy. I LOVE the moto-style zipper and it was probably what sealed the deal for me. It's also a nice length. It's short enough but not too short that I would be worried all night about all that assmy stuff hanging out. For reference, I'm about 5'2" and the dress comes down to just half-way down my thighs. Because the material is thick enough, you really needn't wear a bra with it, though if you want that extra umph, then a push-up bra would be the way to go.

Here's how it looks on me:

The shoes are some old Anne Michelle heels that I bought from Ross many, many moons ago and the accessories are from Charlotte Russe.

I am so in love with this dress! I love the way it fits on me. It's just perfect. I'm sure this will be sitting in my closet for awhile because I really don't have anywhere to wear it to, but I have no regrets about buying it. I think every girl needs a LBD (or several) that they feel sexy in and this is definitely one of them. It is form-fitting and hugs you in all the right places ;)
