I’ve never been to a tea party so I thought it would be fun to dress up as if I were going to one. Today is rather gloomy at first with unpredicted and furthermore unexpected rain. I had planned on having some tea later for the rainy occasion. Anyhoo, I like this dress because as I am currently losing weight, I have a ways to go. If you still have a little mommy pouch like I do, this dress does great to conceal those midsection issues. The ruching disguises the midsection by allowing the focus of the eye to be on detail, not “imperfections”. This happens to be a skater dress so the fit & flare of the dress elongates the waist as well as creates a slimming effect in that area. The sleeves are perfect and allows for a formal look to an informal dress. I normally, like so many other gals don’t like large floral dresses however, the flowers on this dress seem abstract. That keeps the print from having an overwhelming appearance. The shoes are honestly comfortable. The simplicity and modern look of them balances this outfit. What would a tea party be without the hat right? I got this wide brim straw hat to keep the sun out of my face while at my garden party…except today there was no sun at first. *shrug* Oh well! Tell me what you think of my look!!
