I love this dress even though it’s a completely inappropriate colour for both my life and work. The red is a great contrast, but the white is a disaster waiting to happen for this worker in a mineral exploration and camp services business. I would’ve jumped on this had it been in black or navy and red. $99.99 on ModCloth.

This pretty frock is upcoming on Dress911. I think the back detail is what caught my attention, it’s open and pretty. My scary acne scars on my back from my teen years are finally fading and I’m beginning to feel comfortable with a partially open back. Any thoughts from anyone on whether or not a large busted woman can get away with draping around the chest area? I’m tempted to try. The belted waist and pleating will help me avoid the boxy look I hate with my current body type. If I’m not careful, I can look like a rectangle.
No price or sizes are listed until it becomes available in June.
(Snow again today, boo!)
Here’s a dress that’s excellent to wear to work on a hot day. Our office is unair-conditioned and the brief summer season can be torturous. At $47.99 US and an unbelievably cheap shipping charge of $4.05 US to Canada, I’m actively debating whether to order another dress. Can be found on ModCloth.
Bettie Page clothing is another retro-flavour website I’m checking out and am thinking of ordering from at some point. The retro styling of their line is from the 1940’s-1960’s. Some of their dresses are up on ModCloth. This dress is in sizes XS-4X, available in red or black, and is selling for $126.00 US on the Bettie Page site.
Since beginning blogging, I have re-discovered my preference for skirts and dresses. I am almost only buying these and am only buying the occasional pair of pants or shorts. I’ve decided to roll with it.
Here’s one I’m cyber-longing for on the Canadian webstore Dress911 (their description is “We adore indie-viduality!). At this stage, it’s called simply June/July and no price is listed but I’m in love. 1960’s fashion made for the 2010’s. The fabric, nipped in waist and collar in a contrasting colour, and silhouette are covet-worthy.
I’m also mulling over About the Artist, $52.99 US on Modcloth. I love it and find it really cute, but I just can’t make up my mind about the ruffles down the front of the dress. I’m rather large busted and I worry that it might look weird. Are they flat enough and spaced well? Or will they accentuate the wrong area?
