I have a confession to make. You ready? It’s pretty serious. Here it is:
This two-toned dress is simple but the shine and weight of the fabric adds a level of lux. Also I like the empire waist to create an illusion of height. We short girls need to think of things like that!
The simplicity of this dress is brought up a notch by two things. The high-low hemline is modern and the bright kelly green is a fun alternative to black.
I love this dress! The flowy fabric is reminiscent of a princess’s ballgown, and the periwinkle color is so different! The off-the-shoulder neckline adds a level of sophistication without baring all.
So there you have it. I would be delighted with any of these dresses. Do you notice the similarities, a pattern? My body type looks best with a fit-and-flare dress style. I am not as comfortable in shift dresses or mermaid style (like the one in the background of the above picture.) It’s not that I dislike them; I just don’t look good in that dress style because I am so short waisted.
What is your favorite fancy-schmancy dress-up dress? Do you watch the various awards? What do you like about them? I really am curious and would love to hear!
