A few weeks ago I entered Monique from Curves and Chaos‘ giveaway for the following Torrid dress.

Blue Coral Floral Maxi

And lucky me, I won! I was completely excited to receive the dress because I had already been in store and eyed it. I had expected it to take a couple weeks, so when I unexpectedly received a Torrid box my immediate thought was “Oh, no.. my online shopping has gotten out of control because I don’t even remember getting something from Torrid.” (Sign of shopping addiction, anyone?!)

When I opened the box, I immediately spotted an envelope, and I breathed a sigh of relief for my credit card :). Torrid sent me a lovely congrats note for winning the giveaway, and that’s when they let me know that they had sold out of the size I needed in the dress. They decided to send the dress anyways in the size they had left (a size 2) for me to try or give to a friend, and then also sent me two additional dresses to make up for not being able to send it in the correct size.

I, of course, had to try them all on just in case, and again, lucky me, they all fit!! 3 dresses for the prize of 1! I really had hit the jackpot!

I wore the dress out to celebrate Mother’s Day with the family, and I’ve worn it so many times since! The skirt was a little tight at the hip, but after wearing it for a little while, it stretched slightly and was a perfect fit. I’ve worn it with and without the belt, and also with an ivory cardigan instead of the jean jacket. I’m sure you’ll see this pop up on here some more this summer.

I has a really pretty paisley pattern, and incorporates my favorite color of the season: coral!

I love how the bottom changes up the pattern a little to give the dress some more interest.

What do you all think?

P.S. Here are the other goodies Torrid sent me.

A huge thank you to Monique and Torrid for the prizes!!
