What I Wore: Jete Streaked Plaid Tank Dress

As a long time subscriber of Gwynnie Bee (I signed up in January of 2013), I've had the opportunity to try brands I've never heard of, to try styles I wouldn't have thought twice about, and to push myself creatively in styling an item.  Sometimes it is just that little push to try something new that inspires me and/or helps me see my style and my body in a whole new, positive light.

I talked about Jete on the blog before while showing you how I styled a purple and orange tank dress.  The dress in today's post is the same style done a little different.  Read on for details....

As I mentioned, I received this same style of dress from Jete in the summer (both are a 3X).  While I went a little more easy and casual with the previous look, donning nude wedges and a green jacket, I decided I wanted to dress this look up a little more.  Because I didn't belt the last dress, I decided to belt this one.  I found a matching turquoise skinny belt in my stash, but decided to add a contrasting pop of color in this purple skinny belt as well.  I really liked the contrast of color and the way the dress looked belted.  It gave the generously cut tank style a different personality.  Inspired by the girly fit-and-flare of the belted dress, I added nude flats and sparkling blue jewelry that complimented the hues of the pattern.  In keeping with my normal feminine but casual aesthetic, the lacy hoodie rounded out my accessories.

I was so pleased with my final look, I really thought about buying this dress.  It is comfortable and easy to wear.  I love the colors and pattern.  However, the "Keep It" price was still a little too expensive for my taste.  This brings me to my only real complaint about this dress - the fabric is a poly/spandex that feels cheap.  Don't get me wrong, it is slinky, light, easy to wear, hangs well, doesn't feel cheaply made, and doesn't look cheap when styled.  I just don't feel that a garment made with this material should retail for a super high price to begin with.  I'll be keeping my eye on the GB Shop just in case they have a big sale on their Jete tank dresses.  They certainly make me want to try more swing/A-line designs that I haven't tried too much of in the past.
