As I wore this ensemble, it became clear to me that I would very much like to wear dresses and cardigans with heels every day for the rest of my life! That's just how good I felt.
Was it the most attractive, most flattering thing I've ever worn? Nope. But something about it made me feel all good things: pretty, feminine, sweet, while being plenty professional enough for work too. I was comfortable from the time I dressed at 6:30am, during work, through choir practice, until I arrived home at 9pm.
I have an hourglass shape, so dresses with a defined waistline are the ones for me. I much prefer an A-line skirt, but some straighter cuts work too. Even though V-neck cardigans are said to minimize a chest (yes please), I gravitate to crew-necks instead. As for heels...I like 'em tall. With dresses I like a round or peep toe. See the pickiness?
An added bonus...the husband likes dresses a lot. Handsy, is a good way to put it. (Scrubs reference). TMI? Sorry...
