I am Being Stalked

...By Mesh Dresses. I know, I know MESH-SMESH but I think this is a slight obsession that I am Stalking/it is stalking me! After the AA mesh, MIA mesh to the Dellal mesh, allow me to introduce the Hellz Bellz mesh:

Picture from here

Saucy much? I really doubt that anything can tip the scale on the 'mesh slut-o-meter' after that American Apparel 'dress', or as it is more commonly known as 'a giant fishnet with neck and arm holes'. I don't particularly like this Hellz Bellz number from their soon to be released Spirng 09 collection, but lets be real, this is hardly the worst piece of mesh now is it? And plus I wanted to add to my mesh archive. Hellz Bellz has also followed this mesh theme through to an amazing zebra print print windbreaker which you guys can see on Trashbag Aesthetics. A grey zebra print windbreaker with contrasting red mesh panel's under the arms and down the sides?...I must say, a brand after my own heart! Seriously check out the lookbook, I think I love every piece, bar the mesh dress above. I am especially salivating over the 'Coco Bellz' print t-shirts and the multi-coloured squared cardigan, which is reminiscent of the broadcasting test pattern (that colourful pattern which test TV signals).

So after all those mesh dressed celebrities/brands that I have stalked, here I am in a rather discreet mesh dress - compared to the ones we have seen. Don't worry no free-falling boobs here:

Decent enough? I think so, plus I love the print and the ruched mid section! When I saw this hanging lifelessly in the River Island sale rail for £10, I knew it was my time to do my good deed and perform some first aid to bring it back to life. I got this in the January sales, when back then mesh wasn't flaunted half as much as it is now. I will admit that at first I was vary of the mesh section. But I tried it on anyway and boy did it come to life! A swift purchase indeed.

I think that if boobs aint on view, mesh can look really cute and different.

it kind of annoys me that the dress in the first picture could be devestatingly amazing if it had been made properly minus the shock value slut factor!!

This is the one with the mesh-ness like mine!! Beautiful beautiful, I am liking the print a lot. Also I am not big on River Island, so this is quite an achievement (:

I have heard that from my aunt before, I went to the midnight launch thing of the last Harry Potter and she told me to be careful because people thought I might be Hermione. I nearly verbally hit her but decided it probably wasn't the best idea.

SOS! said...

I like mesh but the nip flash in the AA ad...mmm me no likey much! It doesn't compliment the beautiful female anatomy at all!! I'd rather she be standing there wearing just the top alone with nothing underneath rather than that silly peekaboo..
