Dynamite always surprises me with the different types of dresses they have every season, I can always find that perfect mix of options that I am looking for. When I saw this dress I loved the idea that I could wear this to work and out to a family event. Anytime when I am shopping if I want to spend a little extra money I try to name 3-5 places/events I can wear it to so I get my moneys worth. It is one of my shopping secrets when it comes to justifying a purchase… other cases I can only come up with “I want it, I need it, I need it right now, I have to have it” which aren’t valid reasons. This dress didn’t push a price point for me but it was $50, a simple dress like it was I wanted to make sure I was going to get my use out of it and it wouldn’t be sitting in my closet. Ironically it had been until I took this photo. It was a way for me to motivate myself to jump back into taking pictures of things I had purchased that I was busting to share.
I am very aware of the shape of my body and how wide my hips are.. in certain photos this dress makes me look a bit wider than I would personally like. What to do? Make the tie a bit tighter to show off my waist line or even add a gold belt to draw attention to my smaller waist line. We all aren’t perfect and I wanted to point out some of my own insecurities and how I have found ways to hide them and focus on other parts of my body instead.
