Curves? Ally?

I don't have curves. My body is a cylinder: 40-40-40. But clever fashion design helps me create the illusion of a female shape. Ever since I saw dresses like the one below, I craved its magic.

Searching for jewelry to go with the neckline, I found a choker at Target for $14. It works perfectly with the dress and I like its elegance.

Have you ever worn a choker necklace? And what do you think of my outfit?

  1. Great outfit with the contrast colours. I had a choker long ago, but have not worn one in a while.

  3. Beautiful! And I love dresses like this that give the allusion of curves :) You look stunning (and the shoes go perfectly). Thumbs up!

  4. LOVE the dress! So flattering. I've been searching for one like that for myself for a while now. Did you find it thrifting? Or splurge because it is just so great?

    I like the choker (they're so in right now) but find them very hard to wear on myself. I have a short neck already and they cut it making it look even worse.

    1. I splurged and paid retail at my favorite store (Fox's) which sells designer clothes at steeply-discounted prices. It's a wonderful place to shop. They have a dozen or so stores in the U.S.; there are two in NYC you can visit when you next come here. See: http://foxs.com

      Unlike you with a short neck, my neck is ridiculously long so a choker makes me look normal.

    2. Oooh! Thanks for that! I must admit I'm rarely on Twitter lately so I was lucky to catch your comment there. I really want to check out this spot the next time I'm in NYC.

  5. I do love this dress! The style is perfect for you and it looks comfortable. Love the choker too, it is feminine and perfect for this look, as it does not overpower.
    Well done!

  6. I think this dress does marvels and works its magic on you !
    .. I don't think I've worn a choker in ages. It's mostly because of my double chin. I feel it attracts more attention to that area.

  7. I hear you. Rectangular body here as well!
    These dresses are mistresses of disguise.
    I love chokers...I have a long neck too.

  9. I love the necklace. It really makes the outfit come together. So chic.

  10. That dress is stunning on you - I love how it looks on your hips, and how the longer length makes you look so chic. Chokers can be tricky to wear, as they "chop" off the neck - they really require a wide neckline, like on this dress. Well done, Ally!

  11. I really like this on you - and similar things on me, as I don't have curves either. It's amazing what some clothes can do for us.

  12. This dress sure gives you the right curves!! I am not a fan of anything that is too snug around my neck (I feel like someone is choking me) so chokers and turtlenecks are a big no for me. I think this choker looks great with this dress.

    1. The dress is new but I've worn similar styles before. Searching for a magical solution to my body-type.

  16. I love those illusion dresses! I wonder if there's one that can make my bosom look smaller. HEE HEE!! I'm not a choker fan, I'll wear them but I don't like how they feel or look on me.

  17. You are right! This dress does make you look like you have curves girl! Great find and smart dressing.

  18. Wow, wow, wow! Did I say wow? Well yes, wow! You look curvy-licious in that dress Ally. And the choker is spot on. I'm envious as I really like chokers and that's a keeper!

  19. Ooh la la! ;-) That's a gorgeous dress on you!

    And that choker is all kinds of classy... Puts the 1990s ones that spring to my mind at the word to shame!

  20. Fantastic outfit, Ally! This dress really gives your figure that extra va-va-voom factor. Gorgeous choker, too. I was all about them in the 90s. Not only because they were in vogue at the time, but because I already adored historical fashions and loved wearing Victorian inspired elements (like chokers) into some of my looks while I was growing up.

    Have a marvelous week!
