I found this dress last fall at BCBG hidden in the sale rack. My mama always told me to always try something on before I wrote it off, and this dress is a perfect example.
Normally I’m not drawn to things with beige, tan or peachy colors. I also had a hard time seeing what this looked like on the hanger. As you can see from the sketch, which even in the flat version looks confusing. What are those bubbles of fabric along the side?
But when I put it on I realized how wonderfully it fits. It’s tight in all the right places, and loose in all the others, and the way the color panel angles together in the front is wonderfully slimming and I love the pop of the subdued colors against the black.
