The weather is getting warmer and I crave wearing a “pretty something” around the city.
The problem is, shopping for a new summer dress with an appropriate cut and style is just so impossible.
Every Chicago woman knows that you just can’t wear a flowy, loose dress. ever. This dress would show a whole lot of body in the windy Chicago summer.
My shopping qualifications are a flattering cut for a summer dress, and it to be made in a durable, quality way. Much to my dismay, most dresses in style barely cover my behind, or are cut so low that there’s nothing left to the imagination. Even worse, the dresses I do find are made of cheap, polyester material or have just a loose construction.
With a limited budget and the right KonMari minimalist mindset, I found a few pieces that are made with a mature cut that’s still fun and flattering.
