Just a short post today to share what I’ll be wearing to dinner tonight.
The BB Dakota Rhianna Illusion Yoke Lace Fit & Flare Dress is extremely well-reviewed, and is currently on sale in 11 colors. Aubergine, shown here, is my favorite, but the dress is also stunning in crimson and verde.
As I had mentioned in a previous post, this style fits true to size for BB Dakota (or contemporary women’s brands). I am normally a size 00P at mass market retailers, and the dress in size 0 fits me well. If you are tall or large-chested, you may want to consider ordering a size larger for the extra length/room.
For shorter women, this dress can be easily adapted for the office with the right styling (I like to wear a slim-fitting cropped sweater over it and define the waist with a belt). It’s also good for an evening out with friends when worn with opaque tights, tonal booties, and a fitted leather jacket.
For those of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas! I have a number of sale posts scheduled for next week, in anticipation of after-Christmas sales. Stay tuned.
