WORK IT WEDNESDAY: $105 BLACK AND WHITE FIT AND FLARE DRESS
SHOP THE POST
Happy Humpday, y’all! This is a new series I want to test out. As most of you know, I am a Regional Sales Manager for a medical device company, motivating and inspiring 11 AH-MAZ-ING sales consultants across 7 states. For me, work attire has always been somewhat of a challenge for me. I want to remain authentic to myself and be creative. However, I also want to be professional. So I tend to live off 5-7 outfits per season, wearing them over and over again. Price per wear, y’all. Did you see my post describing the cost per wear concept? So make sure you check it out!
FIT AND FLARE DRESS: PERFECT FOR WORK OR PLAY
How cute is this little fit and flare dress? I love the simplicity, the fit, the pattern, AND THE PRICE. Perfect for work or play (cc: Alabama fans. This is perfect for football season!), your cost per wear on this little frock is pennies on the dollar! Read my post, y’all. It will seriously change your life.
STYLE + FIT TIPS
Pair with heels or black ankle boots for a more casual look. Work in a more formal environment? Try adding a structured black blazer and then style with a pair of round toe suede pumps (OBSESSED with this $80 pair). This dress is also great for church or date night! For date night, I would opt for black booties and then your favorite leather moto jacket. Also add a pop of color with jewelry or a fun bag!
According to the Nordstrom website, they recommend sizing up. I 100% disagree. I also recommend ordering your regular size or even one size down. In dresses, I am typically a 2 or a 4, if fitted in the chest. So I ordered both the 2 and the 4, and even the 2 is slightly large in the hips. So stick to your regular size y’all! The quality of this piece really is amazing. It is slightly stretchy and fitted in all the right places. In fact, it definitely feels more expensive than the cost.
