Not long ago, I blogged about loving this dress: the New Directions Stitch Down Waist Floral Print Dress. I really really wanted the gorgeous floral dress after I saw it in a Belk circular I got a few weeks ago, but it appeared that Belk.com had sold out of the straight sized dresses.
Today I went to the mall with my dear friend and coworker Heather and I saw that very same New Directions Floral Print Dress at Belk, along with many many other gorgeous colorful and floral dresses. The dress looks even better in person and even though I had to size up (booooo!), this beautiful dress came home with me.
I absolutely love it!!! The bust area is a little loose on me but I can definitely get it taken in by a tailor. The colors, floral patter, empire waist, style, and fabric (mostly cotton) are stellar!
Plus it has pockets! wowzer!
Dress shown here on me (oops I think the tag is sticking out of the arm hole – oh well) with a Limited stretch belt, my Melinda Maria star moon necklace, and Naturalizer Prissy silver sandals (not my favorite shoes but they were my wedding shoes and they were handy for this photo-op).
I would wear this dress to work with a lace cami underneath, some professional-looking black peeptoe heels, and a nice shrug or bolero.
I love this dress!
