Normally when I make a big purchase, classic style without frill is my motto. However, once in a while, a gal just wants to have a little fun. After telling myself I can't buy another black dress, I promptly find one I just can't resist. The fit is super flattering, which a gal can't tell at all on the hanger. Most of the Chanel pieces I purchased usually didn't look all that fabulous on the hanger but somehow always looked fabulous on the body.
This dress is actually size 38 which is slightly big on me, as I usually take 34 or 36. However, I picked 38 over 36 because I preferred a slightly slouchy casual look. I have gal pals who would absolutely refuse to a piece because they had to take the next size up. I tell them all the time, it is about the fit, not the number on the tag.
To break up the black monotone look, I added a silver and white pearl necklace with clear crystal accents. Also, this dress has lots of sparkles weaved into the slinky fabric, which is fun and stylish. Do you think we obsess too much about the size rather than fit?
