|Lindsay sweater dress in splash pink roaring stripe (size medium): Lilly Pulitzer, here|
Resort chic wedge in island coral: Lilly Pulitzer, here
Hello body consciousness! While I think this sweater dress is gorgeous for a night out, it shows off Every. Single. Curve. I don't even own a pair of spanx of any sort, but this dress is kind of making me want to go buy some. This dress is definitely NOT one that will come to mind during a "having a fat day" kind of day. It's more of a "Oh I was so busy I forgot to eat today" kind of dress if you know what I mean. Ha. It is actually really comfortable though, and I like the wide waistband. Plus I got a good ab workout in by sucking in my gut all night. One word on fit: Lilly Pulitzer knit dresses that have alpha sizes notoriously run very small. I take a size small 95% of the time, but in these knit dresses I always take a medium. You can tell by looking at it that there is no extra room...so if you're ever ordering a Lilly knit dress in S, M, or L...size up!
This wedges look a bit orangier in the photo than IRL...I thought they matched better than this. But next time I will go with a neutral shoe. Both the dress and the wedges are from a local Dillard's in Cincinnati that happens to have one of the few department store Lilly Pulitzer sections in the nation. I can always find great deals there, since Dillard's tends to mark items down much quicker than boutiques. I was surprised to find this dress still full price on Lilly's website, when I paid around $94.00 for it. I love feeling like I got a good deal!
