Many internet friends have come to me asking, “Oh Plumcake, I know that American Idol winner and whackaloon-target du jour Jordin Sparks is not fit to walk the earth with the thin and-by-extension-virtuous people like Marc Anthony, but where oh where can I get her dresses?” to which I reply “who gave you this phone number?”
I kid I kid.
Last week I pictured two outfits worn by the curvy contestant and with a little research I’ve been able to find out exactly where you too can buy her darling dresses.
The Grecian chiffon number worn by Sparks during her duet with Ruben Studdard is by Poppie Couture and creatively called the Voluminous Bright Pink Dress. It come prêt à porter in even sizes from 2 to 16 but the website says to call for larger sizes. Price? $425.
For a similar look at a lower price point –under $100!– check out Robbie Bee’s Metallic Lattice Dress, available at Nordstrom. The model is wearing this very poorly (the dress, which doesn’t quite fit, seems to be wearing her) but it’s a cute little party dress in the color story of the season.
Miss Sparks’ second dress was trickier to locate but is easier on the pocket book. It’s a satin convertible dress from the “Butter by Nadia” line that can be worn something like ten ways. I am wary of gimmick dresses in general, but the Butter line looks like a comparatively safe bet as far as convertible dresses go. The construction looks fairly solid and it’s long enough that the wonky hemline (which still bugs me) even though it’s raised in the middle, doesn’t seem to risk exposing your Very Thing every time you sit down. It’s one size fits all and available at Lola y Maria Boutique for $268.
For a quick and dirty casual approximation at less than a fourth of the price you can always try Size Appeal’s Fiona dress in Pewter.
