I found this denim dress by Taylor at Nordstrom. The fitted bodice and A-line skirt with inserted pockets is flattering to any shape and I was willing to pay full price because the fabric is one I can wear year round, with almost any color and in any setting – again, cost-per-wear is a factor when considering a more pricey piece. I wear it with the first couple of buttons undone to visually lengthen my neck and take focus off my chest. The vanilla slingbacks I spotted two summers ago for $20 on the designer sale site, Bad Joan. The fabric clutch with the wild, colorful print is from Aldo.
