A while back in my Friday Favorites I featured a dress from the brand CowCow and mentioned how I wanted to pick one up eventually. They’re cheap, they have pretty awesome reviews, and the biggest selling point for me is the fact that they offer really unique prints. Basically anything you can think of, they have it on a dress. Mushrooms, sushi, bees, bats, and so on! I was leaning toward bats until I found this beetle dress, and felt compelled to purchase immediately. It comes in a variety of different colors but the ‘beige’ one seemed like it’d be the easiest color to pair with other things. This dress is definitely white, not beige. No idea whats up with that!

A few things to note if you want to purchase one of these dresses – I’m fairly tall so this dress is a bit short on me. Nothing a pair of stretchy shorts underneath or tights in cooler months can’t solve though. I also would recommend possibly sizing up if you have large breasts. Some reviews noted that the pattern stretched out in that area but my issue was actually with the length of the dress. In the front its much shorter because of my boobs. I almost feel dumb mentioning that because… well, duh, it should be obvious that its going to take more fabric to cover them babies. Its just that I don’t really notice it with any of my other clothes but I feel like this dress is significantly shorter in the front because of my boobs.

Those things aside, I feel like this was a solid buy! I only wish I could find more clothes covered in beetles…
