The Kewl Shop: Petite-friendly holiday bandage dresses

Now that Halloween is over, this weekend marks the official start of the holiday season. With one of the biggest celebrations is just around the corner, it's never too early to start looking for that perfect holiday dress. Finding the perfect dress can take quite a bit of time especially for petite ladies. The Kewl Shop recently reached out to me to introduce their bandage dress collection so I thought I'd share a few things just in case you're interested. While most of their dresses are too revealing for me, I did find something that caught my attention. This plaid dress is absolutely stunning in person.

J Crew Lady day coat in red

The unique pattern of this dress is what drawn me to it. Plaid returns this Fall in a big way. This dress is made from a spandex-like material. It's very thick, sturdy and stretchy at the same time. After having 2 kids, I am very self-conscious about wearing a tight fitting dress. This dress makes me feel sexy and classy at the same time. I am a huge fan of cap sleeves. They add the perfect amount of coverage and look very feminine.

What I am wearing:
Dress: c/o The Kewl Shop (use code SYDNEY15 for 15% off)
Jacket: J.Crew lady day coat - size 00 regular
Cuff: Express bar cuff (under $15)
Faux fur scarf: The Limited (buy similar)

Petite bandage dress

The sizing was very petite-friendly. I originally ordered a size XS and couldn't pull the zipper all the way up. I had to exchange for a size S. If you're in between sizes, definitely size up. This dress is not something I'd wear to a holiday office party. However, it's perfect for a night out with your significant others or your friends for a few drinks. I love the way the dress hugs all my curves without showing imperfections. If you love those Herve Leger dresses but do not want to pay the hefty price tags, I encourage you to take a look at their collection.

This bandage dress is just one of the many beautiful dresses available in The Kewl Shop's line of dresses. Their selection is laden with different options, like the classic bandage dress, the ombre one shoulder bandage dress, and the long sleeve bandage dress. If you find something that catches your interest, use code SYDNEY15 to get 15% off your order (no expiration). The Kewl Shop offers free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase. I received both of my orders within a week. Linking up with Manic Monday today!

What a fun, unique dress! If you are wearing a small they are most definitely sized for petite people! LOL! I agree with Tara - it looks great with the red coat.
