Product Review: The Convertible Dress

Picture this. You've been invited to a fancy party, but you've been so caught up with work/school that you haven't had time to go shopping! Your friends have seen you in every dress that you own - what do you do, what do you do?

Now, wouldn't you wish one of your dresses could
turn into a different dress? :D

If you didn't already know this, there is indeed such a dress! :) You neither need a fairy godmother nor the skills of a seamstress - all you need is ONE convertible dress and a YouTube video to teach you how to wear the dress the way you want to!

Everybody say,

Here are just some of the many ways you can wear this dress:

Of course, such a chameleon-like dress usually comes with a hefty price tag - we're talking hundreds of USD. But lucky for us, Malaysian blogshop Mizu Closet has stocked up on these convertible dresses - in 3 staple shades (black, pink, purple) - and for only RM60! :D

Convertible dress from Mizu Closet RM60

Why did I buy it?

To be honest, I've heard of the wonders of the dress for about a year now - but a part of me has always wondered if this was one of those shopping "myths" (one dress can turn into more than 10? Don't pull my leg!). So I bought this because I wanted to see if it was true (and this is the lowest price in town for this, as far as I can tell :P) - and because I wanted to tell YSK readers, too! :D So today, I can assure you that based on my personal experience, this convertible dress is such an amazing investment piece for your wardrobe!

What the dress looks like, laid flat:

Elastic waistband that stretches comfortably up to 45 inches. Best fits dress sizes UK4-18.
Comfy flare skirt that falls so gracefully. Thick, relatively heavy material.
If wearing the skirt at waist-level, this would probably be a maxi dress for petites.
While I wouldn't call this 100% free size, it's suitable for any height range. :)
Even if it's too long for your liking, you can get the length altered at the tailor for a few ringgit.

Do enquire at the blogshop selling this dress for measurements if unsure! :)

What makes this dress so special? Its versatility!
Besides being a totally awesome travel buddy if you're low on luggage space, this is one of those long-term money-savers that you simply can't pass up on. :P Suitable for parties, proms, dinners, hi-tea, upper-crust brunch, showing off your sexy back in general (or your sexy front with a plunging neckline), shopping (wear it bandeau/tube style for that short & cute effect!) ... basically anything except, like, lectures. You can even wear it to work under a fitted blazer or longline button-up cardigan! :D The possibilites are endless!

Slightly different variations of the dress, but similar styles:

Do you accept request for review? I wish that my shop can be reviewed by you. It's a new shop and it lacks popularity.
I need your help.

Take a look at my shop ^_^ www.colorsbead.com

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
Joey, je.cheow@gmail.com

Hi Sha-Lene,

Could you try those dress styles and post photos of them here? What is seen on photos and on Youtube is rather vague. Thanks.

Hi Joey! :)

Sorry for the late reply, I seem to have missed out your comment! I think the YouTube videos demonstrate as best as possible the different styles of wearing the dress - with my lack of folding and tucking skills I couldn't do any better by myself :P I'll see what I can do ya :)
