I'm a huge fan of dresses, but always have a hard time buying them. I'm a pear shape (smaller on top, bigger on the bottom) and so finding a dress that fits can be tough.
It never fails that it either fits my bust, but is too tight across my hips, or conversely it fits my hips, but gapes at my bust. This dress falls into the latter category. In the dress's defense though, I could have probably sized down and fixed the problem (but then it would be a little snug in the waist).
What I did love about this Shoshanna dress is the bright peachy color. The dress was a perfect compliment to the new summer glow I've been sporting thanks to my recent hobby of trying out faux tanners (review coming Friday).
I complimented the peach color of the dress with turquoise accessories, like this Kate Spade crossbody bag and stone necklace (P.S. The matching earrings are on sale here). To finish the look, I added my gold Lilly Pulitzer for Target gold wedges.
I know, I know, I could get it tailored, but I'm always hesitate to tailor my clothes. I tend to buy "fast fashion," wear a few seasons, and then donate or sell online.
But now that I've started investing in more expensive clothes (i.e. $100 or more, which is expensive when you're used to paying $20 an item), I'm thinking tailoring might be the route to go.
If you -- like me -- are pear-shaped, I highly recommend wearing A-line dresses. To date, they're the style that tends to fit the best since the shape allows for a little more around the hip area. Or, you could go the made-to-fit route. Read about my experience here.
