I love the shape of the dress. The flare of its skirt and its extra-panels. (What are they called again?) Best of all, the material is elastic. Stretch is my friend. It allows conventional clothes to fit on my unconventional body.
Last month, I picked up a sparkly belt at a thrift-store, I didn't know what to wear it with but I trusted something would come along. And it did. The belt is perfect for this dress, don't you think?
Do you ever buy an item not knowing how it will fit into a future outfit but having faith it will? That's a cardinal rule of female-shopping I've learned through experience. Nothing beats experience.
Now I just need a party. Can I come over? I'll bring wine, cheese and try to look pretty...
