I have newly discovered this dress from Madewell (looks like it's on sale!), and friends...I am obsessed with it. Now really, it's a possibility that I should NOT be wearing this dress. It is indeed...a trapeze dress/swing dress. It's very long and roomy and it's supposed to be that way. It's
probably definitely made for tall, lithe Twiggy types who are the lucky owners of legs for days. BUT...I tell ya..this dress is fabulous. It strikes the absolute perfect point between comfort and elegance. I just can't even stand it. I want to wear it all the time. I love this dress so much that I bought it in both patterns, because I think they strike very different notes. The black and white being bold and a bit funky, and the blue one being a bit more sweet and vintage feeling. I think that I carry it off pretty well, being a super shortie, by sporting heeled clogs with it. In fact, I think everyone should sport heeled clogs when wearing it, even Twiggies, because heeled clogs are rad. Ok fine, if you are a 6' tall Twiggy go ahead and slap on some super cute flat sandals. The rest of us mere mortals can pair this amazing dress with these ABSURDLY AMAZING clogs from Maguba (don't you just love that color?), and a lovely long necklace from my favorite jewelry artist Takara. I have the necklace on the bottom and it's just perfect with the dress.
Trust me friends. This one is a keeper.
