Poolside Shift Dress (PXS) in Ocean Dive
Okay this is the worst pose ever. I look constipated. If I wasn't so lazy or had any extra time I would retake it but alas here it is. I think I'm trying to show how it really is a straight up and down shift dress.
The color on this is DIVINE. I love love love it. And although many people are not fans of the exposed zipper I sort of secretly love them. The fabric is a THINK ponte knit and it feels great and retains its shape well. it's sort of weird to wear that sort of fabric with no sleeves. I'm not sure where I would wear this or why I would need it but because it is both comfortable and colorful I'm a little in love. The length is perfect (as petite length in dresses always are for me at AT and LOFT, pants not so much).
I bought this because I am a pianist and always looking for comfortable non-constrictive clothes that are black for concerts. I thought this would fit the bill perfectly but my husband thought it might be a little too "sexy-time" for playing. He might be right. I love the ruching although I think it looks a little pregnant from the side and it bugs me when something is ruched on the front and then all plain looking on the back. I returned it but might regret it.
I have been finding lots of cute things at Ann Taylor lately and am welcoming the idea of shopping somewhere to shop besides J Crew and Anthropologie. Their pieces are classic and the fit is pretty good. Sale prices need to come down a bit more (IMO).
Anyone else find Ann Taylor attractive for clothes?
