Happy Wednesday, ladies. We seem to be coming down to the wire for Christmas. I saw Santa at the mall yesterday which always puts me into the spirit. I popped into Ann Taylor and the store was alive with stunning colors but I zeroed in on this mannequin. Being short, I thought it looked rather frumpy for me so I played around with it.
BELTED MIDI FLARE DRESSThis mannequin seemed very tall and the dress is a midi length so I really needed the petite version which was sold out.
It was way too long to work as a dress for me so I tried wearing it open like a duster. I’m not a fan of self-fabric belts so I tied that in the back to try to contain some of the fullness. I wanted a simple cream-colored turtleneck but they didn’t have one so I resorted to this tunic sweater. The proportions were off so I tucked it in, but it’s really too long to do this.
The gray pants are actually pretty cool but I would have preferred them in misses, not petite to elongate the look as much as possible. They’re a pull-on style which can be dangerous but oh so handy during the holidays.
In the end, this midi dress was not savable for my silhouette but I want to hear your ideas for your shape. How would you style it?
I saw a lot of great things while I was there so I need to remember to check out Ann Taylor more often. Do you wear their clothes?
