Hit 'em with the Shoulders

So Tracey Reese announced that she was adding up a few dresses up to a 2X and I got excited.  I got to meet this amazing designer at a diversity luncheon, and she chatted with me on her goals of extending sizes.  Whether people know this or not, fashion is dominated by men and generally white men, so to met a fellow woman and a woman of color who has been a staple in American fashion for two decades is quite the honor. She has dressed tons of celebrities including Michelle Obama.  I've been a long time fan of Tracy Reese, so when I found out, it only took me seconds to order a dress online.  It's so important for me to support designers like her.   



Style Notes: I got this dress is a 2x. The material has stretch.  I was unsure if the garment was going to fit, but I found the dress to be true to size and it has plenty of give.
