Tightly Sheathed

French Connection is certainly a brand that enjoys showing off a woman's body. Most of the dresses are very short, even on me -- and I'm just five feet, three inches tall (and change). People always think I'm taller than I actually am because I wear heels, but I'm just average height. I can't imagine wearing this dress if I was actually tall!

Dress: French Connection Canyon Sands Sheath Dress

The dress is not lined, so I definitely recommend wearing Spanx underneath. French Connection clothing tends to run small, so size up -- especially with this dress. It's quite tight.

Shopping Tip:
Amazon and Belk are two good places to find French Connection apparel on sale. Never buy this brand full price; it's just not worth it.

You can still find the dress online at the following stores:
If you like the pattern, it's also available in a more subdued fit and flare version.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Lang Sandals in Flame

This shoe design is a popular one for Jimmy Choo; it's available in a variety of different colors, but the Flame color seems to be retired.
