When I reached out to Sisters The Label for help in doing a photo shoot with their Satin Silk Champagne Wrap Two Piece Gown while I was in the Dominican Republic (DR), I was shocked at their eagerness to help me get the gown in time for my trip. None of this would have been possible without that, and I want to start out this blog with a big THANK YOU to Sisters The Label for making this possible!(Shutouts to Bridgette!)
My Weight Loss Journey
Before going into the photo shoot and the gown details, I wanted to discuss a bit more about why I did this. My struggle with my weight since January has been that of an uphill battle. I have been trying to lose weight for years and finally decided that I needed to hire a personal trainer. I do not regret it at all! From January to July I went from 150 lbs to 127 lbs. I have never thought such a feat was possible! I wanted to celebrate this moment by doing a photo shoot revealing my hard work.
I will say, I am not fit and lean as I had wanted, but this is absolutely something I am proud of. As someone who was the definition of a muffin top not too long ago, even though I am not complete shaped, I have accomplished getting pretty damn close to my weight in college.
SATIN SILK CHAMPAGNE WRAP TWO PIECE GOWN
My impression of the gown at first was in awe of its quality, feel, and lightness. The fabric is breathable and lays lightly on your body providing full coverage if you decide not to wear anything under. This particular gown is meant to be worn anywhere and in many different ways. The tops can be wrapped around your neck to create halter or around your chest as a bandeau. I had tried experimenting with other styles, but it proved to be difficult without additional accessories like a brioche, pin, or belt.
The gown is 100% silk and needs to be dry cleaned if it gets dirty. Water does not stain it but any other liquid does indeed stain it. For my height (standing at 5 feet 4 inches) the skirt did drag on the floor, but once I wore 3-inch heels it no longer was an issue. The bottom dress is tied together with a string attached to the top hem of the skirt. This outfit makes for great beach wear addition but as a dress on its own, you will need to modify the bottom with a brioche as the skirt opens to reveal your leg and potentially much more.
I see myself wearing this amazing gown again for a gala, special occasion, or another bean/pool trip as it’s the perfect summer outfit! I do recommend not to wear it if you are drinking alcohol. Anything spilled on it is a hassle to clean up immediately and it will need to be dry clean immediately to prevent permanent staining. Want your own? Go over to their website now!
