Ah, dresses. That ever elusive but incredibly useful piece of clothing. Finding the “perfect” dress is, quite frankly, right up there with finding the perfect pair of shoes. Or the perfect handbag. Sometimes it just falls in your lap when you’re not even looking. You didn’t even realize you wanted that dress, pair of shoes or handbag. You just knew. Today’s dress was like that for me.
I love knit dresses, but they can be tricky. Too tight and you look like a sausage. Too loose and you look like you were styled by a tent maker. Pattern or no pattern? Decisions, decisions. I happened onto this particular little gem of a dress at Ross. I wasn’t sure of the pattern at first – I was afraid it would be too much on my petite frame. But when I saw the $15.99 price tag I figured it was worth at least trying on! I think it hits all the right notes – nice color combination, flattering A-line style looks great with a belt and I have several necklaces that will look great with it. I’m even considering adding a black blazer, tights and boots for Fall. Look at me! Taking fashion risks and everything!
