Graphically Joi

Hey there Style Lovers! How are you? I'm doing ok, or shall I say: 'hanging in there'.
Today I’m sharing a fab straight-cut, graphic print dress with you.

I tend not to gravitate to straight-cut dresses because oftentimes it can be challenging for me to find a fit that I am personally comfortable with.

A common problem
The top portion is overwhelmingly too big, while the bottom portion cuts off my circulation in the hip/thigh area.
Suggested solution:
I purchased this dress in a larger size, and found myself surprisingly quite satisfied with the fit! It could be taken in a bit in a spot or two, but I simply decided not to bother with it.
I’ve styled it in numerous ways, for this go round I kept it very simple.

When I wear navy & white it’s so hard for me to resist wearing a red lip! Do you feel the same way?
Well, with a red lip, one must carry a red handbag- right?! LOL! I thought so, after all, I like to follow all the 'rules' =)

This look is very practical and easily transitions from business to pleasure =)
Now in my opinion, my natural colored leather peep-toe booties go with everything. I look forward to any excuse to take them out on the town. Imagine this: They’re comfortable, I can walk for several hours in them with no issues = winning!

Have a great day Beauties, I appreciate you for stopping by and commenting below ;)

  1. I love that dress and it looks great on you! Finding clothes that fit just right is hard, but you scored with this one.

    1. Thanks Robin! This is a perfect example of why I always like to try things on, I just can't tell off the rack/online!!

  2. You are wearing the he** out of that dress and having fun showing it off. Of course I love your shoes, handbag and that Hair!!

    1. Aww Neti, you're just saying that-LOL! Thank you much!

  3. Cute dress! Yes I in fact have to wear red make up when I wear navy and white! I always buy a size up and have it tailored when the fit on something isn't quite right to me.

    1. Red goes so well with navy and white, we cannot resist!!! Thank you!
