Today on the blog we are talking about something that can be a bit scary. I’m talkin’ fitted dresses. I get it, a fitted dress can be intimidating, especially if you have curves, or carry a little extra love in your mid section. BUT let me tell you, when you find the right one with perfect material and fit that hugs all the right places, you will be a believer in the fitted dress.
I will be honest, I am weird about tighter fitting clothing– I am just very particular about the fit of items I wear in general. I do not have a “one size fits all” body type, so I have had to learn to dress for my body , and what is flattering on me. One of my favorite places to shop for dresses is Nordstrom, they always have an amazing selection and the quality of their items are always great, AKA they won’t shrink to baby gap size when you wash them one time. I had actually seen this fitted dress at Nordstrom months ago, but was always a bit scared to try it on, assuming it wouldn’t work for me. However, a few weeks ago while shopping I was particularly looking for a few basic dresses I could wear with my jackets, vests, and cardigans this fall and came face to face with this dress again. So, I decided “what the heck” and tried it on. HOLY MOLY you guys, I felt like the dressing room mirror was playing tricks on me! It hugged in all the right places and the ruching across the front was so incredibly flattering! I am now the proud owner of this dress in 3 colors. I am not even ashamed guys, not even ashamed!
