I know, I know, I know. The internet has ruined the term ‘perfect’ and I get it, I do. And maybe I’ve overused it as well. But I have to pull that word out for this dress today because it really is perfect as a t-shirt dress. And I’ll tell you why: there is built in ‘curve’ for your hips / tummy. I don’t know if this extra room is on purpose or a design flaw but let me tell you — she works. And I appreciate her. I find that a lot of times with t-shirt dresses — I love the idea of them but they tend to cling around my hips and/or tummy. But if I size up, it gets too long. Such a conundrum. So for me, at least, this dress doesn’t cling at all around those areas and it gives more room at the hips instead of a more narrow bodice, which I find in t-shirt dresses. You know those pull lines when the hips area is too tight? Not this gal. So I’m gonna have to pull the ‘P’ card and call it perfect.
Can I be honest? I felt a bit silly wearing heels around with this outfit. (I went to Costco / Target. My weekly ritual. Thought I’d change it up this week.) Feeling weird in heels is so not like me because I love heels. Always have. When platforms happened to us in the 00’s, I felt seen. But I’ve really found some comfort with sandals and even flip flops — my God, this pandemic has changed me — and putting these albeit cute heels on made me feel something. What about you? Is it safe for heels to come out yet or are we still ignoring them with the not to be mentioned denim?
(For the record, these wedges are $30! A freaking steal. Find them here.)
