As I said yesterday, dresses are a major shortcoming in my closet. But I picked up this little red shift at Zara the other day (on mega-sale), and am quite a fan. It plays well with cardis and blazers now, but I can easily wear it solo when the weather warms up. It doesn’t look like much on that stick-straight model, but add some curves to the mix, and good things happen. Plus, it has those drapey front pockets which do a fine job of camouflaging tummies.
Turns out, there are quite a few excellent (and under-$30) dresses happening at Zara right now (I’m particularly optimistic about this one). Worth a look – just remember, watch those hemlines (Zara does love their minis). And when in doubt, size up.
