The Condom Dress.

The people who work at the Apple Store in Chatswood really could teach the Federal Government a thing or two about efficiency. They were amazing,  right down the a sympathetic head tilt and tissues at the ready when they told me my iPad was fucked. One of my kids dropped it, resulting in a smashed screen that could not be fixed.

I was very sad.

I decided to try and cheer myself up with some window shopping. My dear friend The Divine Ms M had recently told me I had too many "feature pieces" in my wardrobe and that I needed to focus on the basics. I did not need another sequined t-shirt or leopard print anything.  The fact is,  to be honest,  I probably did not need anything, but I quite like shopping and March is a very big Birthday month in my family so, you know, I had to have a look ......... (and that is what we call justification)

The collection from the label Seed had me at "Hello,  look at all these pretty sequined tops!" Sigh. I flicked through the racks of pretty before I spied something that I think came under the heading of a good basic.

Ladies, I give you the Condom Dress.

I call it the Condom Dress because, like a condom,  you literally have to roll it over to get it on.  The area of my body between my armpits and my knees is pretty much a complete disaster but I put in on and thought LAYERING. Layering is totally my friend and I started to think about how I could wear the condom dress.

I called The Resident Blogging Stylist Nikki from Styling You and immediately issued her a challenge. How can I wear the condom dress without looking like two pigs fighting in a black spandex tube?

Click her for her suggestions.

The woman is a complete genius.

Now the best thing about the condom dress,  apart from sucking you in while still allowing full access to breathing, is the price. $50! BULLSHIT! No shit.  I went to buy 2 more,  one for my March Borned Mum and Sister Mrs Ryan,  but they had run out.  When I returned home I jumped online and ordered them from the Seed Website, which had free postage. Thank you!

So that was my fashion fix for the month.  I can see it being on high rotation and like most condoms,  I just pray this one will not split.

Do you think you could pull off the Condom Dress?
How would you wear it?
