The Perfect Striped Dress

Striped dress, nude bag, gold accessories, Tahari sunglasses.
Continuing my love for all things easy and breezy this summer season, I wanted to share with you my most favorite striped dress.  I found it at Ross for $9.99.  I know the "fashion rules" of plus size women shouldn't wear stripes.  "They make you look wider", they said.  "Not flattering on your round figure", they said.  "You'll draw attention to your wide hips", they said.  Blah, blah, blah....

Well, I happen to looooove this dress on my wide hips.  The fit and flare cut actually flatters my frame.  And although the stripe design is horizontal, I don't care...lol.  I felt very beautiful wearing it and even received some compliments that day.  As I'm learning to gain more confidence in myself, I plan to break more fashion rules regularly....baby steps, though, baby steps...lol.

  11. I think it is a super flattering dress as well! I am by means thin myself and think a good horizontal stripe is always very figure flattering. I love the colors of your dress, too. This is a fabulous dress and you look amazing in it!

    Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. The new link up goes live tonight. I hope to see you there! Have a magical day!
