Etsy Find - Glamarita Tie Me Up Tie me Down Ballgowns!

I must admit - I have a new obsession. And it is Glamarita's line of Tie Me Up Tie Me Down ballgowns! I can't remember how or when I found these but I think it was sometime last week. It must have been a feature somewhere as I don't remember ever searching for a new dress...

Now that I have found them, though, I know that I must have one someday! I realized straight out that ordering one right now is not a wise decision as I still have about 25 lbs to go to my goal weight, now is NOT the time to order a custom-made dress. Then I had a fabulous idea - I will order one as a reward for getting back to my goal weight!! It can also double as my Med School graduation present to myself!

I love the fact the the "Scientifically Recommended Red and Black" ballgown above hits right about mid-shin, I think it's such a flattering line! Glamarita warns in the listing for that dress that the model is 6 feet tall thus it will be longer on most people - but being 5'10" it should fit me just perfect! I love the color of the "Wood Nymph" dress above. I am thinking of maybe browns...blues...greens for my dress? Any thoughts?!


  1. Great idea! Gift yourself for getting healthy. You are tall I am 5'9". The best thing about height is it help hide the weight. lol until you gain 50 pounds then nothing hides it. Good luck!

  2. You are so right, Laura. Height can be dangerous as far as weight goes! I can gain/lose 10 lbs and you can't really tell much of a difference. People are shocked when I tell them I am trying to lose 30 lbs - I am "so thin!" The weight is there, though, it's just not as noticeable as it would be if I had a few less inches vertically :)

  3. I was amazed when I saw these on Etsy! They are amazing and beautiful!! If I was a *girly girl*, oh you know the kind that wears dresses lol, I'd be all over these!

  4. Great find!!! I used to always want a skirt made out of ties, these take it to the next level.
