all wrapped up
Oh, hello, blog. It’s been a while. In truth, I’ve just been recycling a lot of looks lately that were already featured here, so I didn’t feel I had much that merited a post. But I haven’t featured this dress here yet!
Stacy and Clinton have always been champions of the wrap dress, but I always thought that, because of my hips, I couldn’t wear them. Turns out… not so. In fact, I love pretty much everything about this navy Merona wrap dress from Target.
I’m not convinced this is the right length for me (it could probably come up a bit), but the neckline, the half-sleeves, the waist-cinching, the forgiving print – all of it just comes together to work pretty fantastically. If you ladies have yet to try a wrap dress, I highly recommend adding one to your wardrobe. I actually think it’s an essential that every woman should own. They can be a little intimidating, a little risky – why yes, I did pin the neckline just to be safe, and yes, that Chicago wind did whip the skirt up to flash some serious leg this morning; readjustment was necessary – but when you can find the right one, it becomes an effortless, stylish look.
Paired with my Nine West red patent peep toes because I love the color combo. It’s really classic, has a very Ralph Lauren Americana feel to it, I think. They’re just strong, saturated shades.
Continued the classic feel (which is still livened up by a more modern print) with simple jewelry: faux pearls (from Target maybe?) and drop earrings from New York & Company.
So have any of you gals found success with a wrap dress? Or are you still in search of the right one?
