Every once in a while when the moon is in the seventh house and the planets have aligned just right, I open my closet –the one dedicated entirely to black dresses– and yearn for something a bit more…exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I love a black jersey dress but there is life beyond noir knitwear. Here are three dresses that have rung my bell recently. They may not be for everyone, but if you’re a girl who’s not afraid to make a statement (or wear charmeuse) these might pay off for you as well.
For those who exercise their right to bare arms, this short shift is a mod choice for apples to show off those gorgeous gams.
I sort of love this dress. Jewel tones in beautifully draping silk. It’s the closest thing we big girls are gonna get to Pucci. But buyer beware, this could be a bit overwhelming for our petite plussies.
A little70’s, but in a good way. Pair it with an enormously glam cocktail ring, keep the hair soft and the shoes simple. Viva!
