SWAK: Pinstripe Dress… Sooooo RETRO!

My new pinstripe dress was chosen by my own stylist: My Daughter!  This 9 year old knows me so well that when she was helping me find items from the SWAK warehouse sale going through racks and racks of items she saw this ONLY piece in this design and said:
“Mom, I want to buy you this dress!”

At first site it looked a little big but knew I can make almost anything work… one big belt, a couple of stitches and a safety pin later – It was PERFECT!  The length on my petite size was a little long but nothing that my heels couldn’t help with.

That day I had people open doors for me and one lady ran ahead of me and with a big smile she said:
“You look so pretty I wanted to see you from the front!”

That was SUPER sweet of her to voice her thoughts.  I am honored bring a smile to people’s lives and am reminded how Fashion truly is a STATEMENT.  The dress is no longer available on line but if you like this design I will keep an eye out place links here for you.  Just comment to express your interest.

Now for the details.  The design is very slimming with a crossed bodice and empire waist.  The roomy skirt with pleats kept its design to look as if I were wearing petticoat underneath.  The sleeves were full on the stitching is a great design detail on the shoulders.  Sleeves were 3/4 length with detailed retro design.

I love this for work or for a lunch date… be ready for LOTS of compliments!  Feeling beautiful is intensified when the outside word sees how you fee… it’s a GREAT feeling.
