The Most Flattering Fit-and-Flare Dress - Among Other Things (The Blog)

The Most Flattering Fit-and-Flare Dress

Between the annual Air & Water show a slew of birthday parties (that bled into the weeeee hours of the night), it was a very good weekend in the Windy City.

How ’bout you?

Last night, a handful of friends and I escaped Chicago’s city limits for a little mini music festival. Among a few different artists, we saw one of our favorite DJ’s — Diplo!

(Kesha was there, too. Random, right? You have to see the dinosaur Snapchat — it was so weird. Add me: ‘coralsncognacs’)

Mondays are rough in general (woof), but today hasn’t been too bad of a struggle. (I’m pretty profesh at avoiding those hangovers, as you know.)

… And it’s very likely that by the time you read this, I’ll already have taught 2/3 of my classes for the day.

I was so excited to share today’s ensemble with you guys. This dress is insanely flattering (even on us petite gals) and Nordstrom just marked it down to 50% off! Obsessed!

There are only a few sizes left, but I’d also suggest checking out Eliza J and Maggy London — both designers make cute fit-and-flare dresses similar to this one (and in all sizes).

I bought the belt in black, too – once you find the “right” belt that works with most of your silhouettes, you’ve gotta invest, right? (“Invest” is a stretch — this one is under $30 and available in most sizes.)

All right, my friends. Hope you day is a great one!
