Unif Dream Jumper Dress from Nasty Gal: Review and Alterations

I posted here about this gorgeous Unif Dream Jumper Dress when I purchased it from Nasty Gal online. The rainbow of shifting colors were beautiful and I loved the sheerness of the skirt as well as the length. The one qualm I had about it however, was the miniscule shorts underneath. I tried to think of a way to add a little more modesty to the dress.

First, here is the dress on me:

As you can see in the previous and next photos, the attached shorts underneath are REALLY tiny. They also bunch up in the crotch area, making me feel like I am wearing a diaper. Not flattering at all. 

So I decided to remove the shorts altogether. I was hoping to find a high waisted jersey skirt in a similar color, but to no avail. 

Instead I used a shaper skirt slip in a nude color underneath. I liked the formfitting style of the skirt as a contrast to the billowy maxiskirt layer.

Now I can confidently wear this dress out! I looks even more lovely in the sun as the material is slightly glimmery as well. I am wearing a size XS. The dress is still available at Nasty Gal in sizes XS, S and L. It is marked down from $148 to $74!

I paired this dress with gold flat ankle strap sandals and a gold crossbody bag. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Best,

Kim

UNIF Dream Jumper Dress 

I know, I know summer is pretty much over and I should be transitioning to fall favorites such as chelsea boots, velvet pants, sweaters and so on. But I'm hanging on to the last rays of summer, my favorite season. Luckily in LA, the weather hasn't chilled too much yet and wearing shorts out is still very much acceptable.

While studying (or not studying...) I chanced upon this dress by UNIF. It is a romper/maxi dress with a gorgeous watercolor gradient.

I love almost everything about it from the colors, flowy skirt shimmery fabric, cinched waist...except. How short is that romper underneath?! I think my underwear will show if I'm not careful! I've been trying to think of ways to cover up a little. I was thinking of just cutting the shorts part off and wearing a white/lavender skirt instead. What do you think? How would you fix this little caveat.

The dress is on sale on Nasty Gal here.

Thanks for reading!

Love,

Kim
