I firmly believe that there is a happy middle ground between a 32 degree windchill (current temperature) and a 95 degree heat index (last week’s temperature), but clearly, May does not agree with me. I declared today a pajama and oversized sweatshirt day, and spent most of it curled up on the couch under a fleece blanket with The Way We Were and Bringing Up Baby. There is no need to document that.
But I can document the gorgeous anthropologie Winsor Knot dress my aunt got me for my birthday. I love the style and color and fabric, but am unsure about the fit. Thoughts?
The length is great, and the jersey cotton fabric is cool and comfortable. The back has adorable button detailing and I love it. But the waist and chest area have me a little mmmm.
The back is great – the waistband is perfectly placed. But it feels like it slopes up in the front, almost like a maternity dress. And then there’s extra fabric beneath my arms and breasts that feels awkward – you can see some pooching on the right.
So: do I keep it, because I love most of it? Or do I exchange it for another dress or top that might fit better?
