Keeping it real with y'all, this dress was one step away from looking like a hospital gown. HA! I can admit the obvious. I had to really play this dress up, so it didn't look like I was going in for surgery. It's a great dress, it is comfortable, has a swing design, and is in Lupita Nyong'o's cinderella blue color that I have been dying (yes dying) to wear. I just had to play it up with accessories and broke up the color with this jacket. I did get compliments on the look, so that at least told me that nobody thought I was on my way to the maternity ward. LOL. Because this was so cute and comfy, I will probably put this in my resort wear pile, as I am anticipating my upcoming getaways. Please note that this dress and look is not about flattery at all, it's about fashion and style as I see it.
Style Note: I bought this dress in a 22. It has a swing design and flares out from the bust, but I wanted to make sure that there enough room for my hips. The arm room was good. The jacket is also a nice fit. I got this in a size 22. It's a knit and does have some give.
