The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.
“We got a chance to go shopping together recently–I’m always in the doghouse for not taking her shopping more often–where I did my best to impress upon her that she needed to look for separates, rather than dresses, for the most flattering, tailored fit. And we found some cute ruffled blouses at J.Crew to build up her bust, and some minimizing pencil skirts to play down her hips. And then, while walking through Sears to the car, we saw the most perfect, wear anywhere Lands’ End shirtdress–on sale. It was so good, in fact, that I bought one for myself, and my mother called her four sisters to tell them to go buy it, too.
Besides its wildly flattering cut and fun-to-wear shape, it’s perfect for my mom because she can use accessories to make it look more interesting and complex, whether it’s layered pearl necklaces and a big belt, or diamond studs. Total slam dunk. And less than $50!”
