Fashion shouldn't be complicated -- it should just follow one specific rule:
Wear what makes you feel good (confident, beautiful, sexy... insert any superlative here).
I definitely have a lot of fit and flare dresses in my closet, as many people often remark.
BUT... The "fit and flare" is my favorite silhouette, as it suits my frame, shows off my best assets, and doesn't require me to wear Spanx underneath.
Today's dress is probably a version of one I have worn before, but I liked the delicate print, with its combination of gold, beige and blue. Plus, I got a great deal on it.
Dress: French Connection Niko Fit and Flare Dress
I paid just $40 for the dress on Amazon, where it's still available in select sizes, though not at the very low price I paid. You can also find the dress at the following retailers:
The French Connection USA site is selling a different version of the dress: same print, more conservative design.
Shoes: Schutz Cadey-Lee Dress Sandals
I actually wore my blue Zara jacket over the dress as I walked into work this morning. It's been chilly here in Atlanta lately. The last summer of my 30s is definitely behind me. Sigh!
