With the holiday party season rapidly approaching, many of us big girls are wondering where to find something superfantastic to wear and bemoaning the endless parade of eighties MOB dresses masquerading as festive formalwear facing us in store after store. It can get so depressing that one becomes tempted to simply cinch a black garbage bag into a sleeveless dress and go sit in a corner guzzling egg nog while trying not to be noticed. It might actually be more attractive than some of the alternatives that present themselves.
But you didn’t think we here at Big Girl would let you sink to that, did you? Have no fear. We’re here to help. And so is Astarte.
This fabulous wrap dress comes in black, cobalt, fuschia, navy, or – as shown – raspberry and definitely makes a statement. That statement is ‘I’m gorgeous, I’m sexy, and I’m superfantastic. Deal with it.’
The price tag of $265 may give you pause, but take a look at the order blank. In addition to the usual size and color entries, they also ask what shape you are and how tall you are. The standard sizes come in every height from 4’11” to 6’4″ and in four different body types. It’s well worth it for what you’d save in having this dress tailored to fit you properly.
If you only get one party dress this season, I’d recommend looking at Astarte first. You won’t be sorry.
