flattering fall dress from Banana Republic


I’ve gotten some feedback that you’d like to see more fashion posts from me here on the blog and on Instagram. So what better time to start than with this figure flattering fall dress I found on a whim!

To be perfectly up front with you, I’m not insanely happy with my weight/size/figure at the moment, which makes shopping for clothing less than fun. Yet I’m not fitting into over half of the current clothes in my closet either, so I often find myself stuck between the limited choices I have or shopping for what I need. [Side note: I’m working diligently at losing the extra weight because this isn’t a fun place to be.]

This flattering fall dress came into my life because I needed something to wear to a luncheon. I found myself staring at the choices in my closet, the night before the luncheon, completely disgruntled. I decided nothing I had would work and headed out to do a little last minute nighttime dress hunting! Since it was nighttime, the local boutiques were closed. So that left the usual nearby chain suspects where I typically have success with last minute buys.

The Dress

I stumbled upon this number in Banana Republic. Sometimes it’s hard to find figure flattering dresses that suit various occasions but this one does. Plus the print looks perfect for fall and winter.

I love how it looks with these tights and booties! Tall boots would look great with it too! And on chilly days, I think a long cardigan would look super cute with it!

I think the simple detailing at the neckline adds a little something to the dress as well.

The tie knot waist is a great twist that adds interest to what would otherwise be a plain waist. I also like that once you get it tightened or loosened to where you want it, you don’t have to fiddle with it anymore!

    The best part of wearing these Power Book II Ghost outfits is that it lets you get rid of seasonal depression, gives you a reason to love yourself make you even more confident. At the end of the day, it’s all worth it.

    Terrible taste!!!! Classless dressing. Just like most everyone else. Just look at Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Nancy Reagan. Refined dress apparel. Great designs and fine fabrics. Understated and elegant looks.

      Wow Suellen, aren’t you a ray of sunshine? I hope you aren’t this unpleasant in real life and that you reserve this attitude for when you’re hiding behind your keyboard. Since you look up to these women, perhaps you should also look at their kind attitudes towards others the next time you feel like insulting someone for no reason. While it’s very easy for me or anyone to change something superficial like clothing, it’s much more difficult to truly look inward and adjust a negative, rude attitude.
