And now, on to the fun part!!
I'm wearing the Violetta Band-Aid Dress -- a perfect summer staple for any fun-loving (NY) city-dweller. I have to admit, because of my physique, I MUST try things on before purchasing, so I hardly ever shop online. I'm petite (5 ft 2 in) but curvy, and since most clothes are made to fit a standard figure, I often experience a hard time finding clothing, especially dresses. With this RackStyles dress, however, I am officially a believer -- it fits impeccably and is really well-made. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!
Bandage (Band-Aid) Dresses have been made famous by popular celebs like Blake Lively, Katy Perry, Sofia Vergara and of course, the Kardashians. The original Hervé Léger bandage dresses run into the thousands, but the dress I'm wearing is under $30, can you believe it?!
I particularly love the playful back opening, and though it requires a backless bra or none at all, the tightly woven material of this dress gives plenty of support even for the larger busts.
Because of their tight elastic fit and excellent support capabilities, bandage dresses are ideal for curvier figures. I love the fact that this dress is form-fitting without being skimpy. It shows off some skin, but does it in a nice, delicate sort of way, so I feel totally comfortable wearing it around town.
To cover up for the evening or even take this dress into the fall season, I'm wearing a cropped three-quarter sleeve jacket (my own). This look almost has a sexy business casual effect... like I'm about to take you to an open house! lol
Bracelet: Banana Republic
Couldn't leave y'all without a couple of good ol' candids!!
