The Elasticated Waist Dress
Here’s another that got away.
The elasticated waist dress. Its raison d’etre, the ruched expandable middle, is not particularly attractive and needs covering with a belt, IMHO. And if a dress can’t hold its own without tweaks and accessories then it’s not worthy of entry into my wardrobe.
But a lovely dress on the right body shape. And a forgiving friend when faced with the full Christmas 🎄 dinner 🥘 blow out. But it’s not for the fuller figure. Apparently.
Can’t remember my personal stylist’s exact words but it was probably something along the lines of “sack of potatoes 🥔 tied in the middle “ ... it usually is !
So, do you have something totally forgiving that is your comfortable go-to on Christmas Day?
A la perchoine,
And that concludes this mini series of ones that got away. I’d been avoiding certain trends that I felt weren’t quite ME. But I decided to give them all a go and even tried them a second time, to check if I’d changed my view from the initial try-on. But it turns out none were keepers.
Though the pleated skirt was one that I’m a tempted to give another go.
