Dress follow-up

Thanks for all the helpful and honest comments! I really appreciate it.

I'm like 75% sure it'll fit, but I decided to look online and found a dress that I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Why oh why did I look? Then I ran down to JC Penney to try it on, but they didn't have it in the store. Meanwhile, I tried on a few other dresses - and get this - all the 20W's were TOO BIG! The 18W's fit just right, but nothing tripped my trigger. So, here's the dress I like. I have these super-duper cute wedges that fit now. They are silk peep toes in a black and white geometric design. Let's see if I can find them online.

Anyhow, here's the dress. Right now it's on sale for $35. I haven't checked what the shipping is. I know it's pretty cheap - it's just deciding whether I can justify it when it's basically to wear once.

It's my favorite color (that I confess I think I look good in with my blond hair and tannish skin) and my favorite cut, highlighting my little waist and nice bust and downplaying my hips and thighs:



And here are the shoes:

  2. LOVE it!!!! I think the other dress is pretty but this one looks more summery and if it is as hot there as it is here you will be happy for the flowy skirt. Easier to catch a breeze. BTW I have a swimsuit for you...email me at repairandrenovation@gmail.com and I'll send you a pic!

  4. Very pretty - the other dress is darker, so this has a completely different feel. I say go for it.

  5. The shoes ROCK.

    Is the dress a Jones New York? I think I wore the same one in peach for my sister's wedding! Loved it, really flattering. The wedding photo is at the bottom of this post:
