When I opened the package today, and I saw that thing, I was like.. “yay!”


I have been on a quest lately to find high quality tailored clothes that rock and wear like art.  So, I went a little Etsy hunting and got this piece that I LOVE so much I almost don’t want to share it with you cause I don’t want anyone else in my neighborhood wearing it.  But, alas, I have to share the details.

The dress I fell in love with on Concertino.

In late September I found the shop Concertino.    Her tag line says “all items in my shop can be make plus size!”  I LOVE this woman.  I was curious to see what she could make in plus size, what she couldn’t, how she could tailor and change items to make them exactly how I want.  For all of these questions I got immediate, polite responses.  I headed out to a tailor and had all of my measurements taken (which I keep with me all of the time….just in case I see something great.)  On October 16, I e-mailed my order to Concertino with my measurements and a special request to make the front of the dress a little longer than is shown in the photo.  She promptly sent me an invoice and added $9 for the customization.  She kept in constant contact with me, updated me when it was in the mail and sent a tracking number.  Yesterday when I opened the package I was seriously jumping for joy.  The dress is a piece of art.  I have had  compliments on it already.   I don’t want to take it off.

Me in my dress. In my head, I look JUST like the girl above. 

I am going to order a coat.  I have to have one.  So beautiful.
