Default Who knew horizontal stripes could look slimming?

So, I was browsing for something else - like not even in the clothing department and decided to take a gander at dresses. I haven't bought a single new item of anything in about a year. A year ago at this time I weighed between 165-168 and I looked fantastic.

Now? Eh... I'm at 186 and I feel I'm bigger, though, in the last couple days I'm beginning to see/feel the slimmer me (must mean a whoosh is coming up) and I'm more toned than last year.

Anyway. They had this Betsy Johnson dress. I have no idea why I decided to try it. Maybe because it looked a bit artsy and different. Anyway, it looked great! And it looked slimming. WHAT??? horizontal stripes on my boobs waist and hips made me look slimmer? Well, it did - and more curvy! it's a "date night" kind of dress, of which I have none. Now to find a time to wear it!

Oh, I got it at Marshalls for way less than shown here. It's knit and has ruching and an underdress (which smooths me out a bit I think). I actually felt kind of hot in it (and not perspiring hot!).

So glad to be feeling slimmer again. I have a ways to go, but I'm back on track and heading in the right direction at least! yay to winter and the winter blahs being gone!

This link even shows the dress in action! And yes, it's clingy, but not in a bad way!

I love that dress!!! You need to plan a date with the husband soon!!

I have been a daring diva in the dressing room lately with items I have no intention of buying just to try out different styles. I don't know if it's because I'm older/more mature or I'm learning so much here on 3FC but things I would think I couldn't wear, I can! And the same old style stuff I have been wearing for years and years are painfully boring and unflattering.

I really think you are going to rock that dress!!! And that sexy feeling you have when you wear it would have made it worth the full price IMO!!

Thanks gals! And since it's knit, if I lose weight, it won't get too big as I don't have a lot left to go.

That is where the getting fit really makes a difference.

I love Betsey Johnson dresses! I love Betsey Johnson in general. She's one of my favorite designers for sure. That dress is fantastic!

http://www.betseyjohnson.com/Item.as...56&np=991_1000 << I tried this one on at the store I work at. It looked unique and different and cute on me! And I tried on an 8 and really could probably use a 6. One day I might splurge and get one just cause I can, or find one really cheap elsewhere.
