It’s all Joanna’s fault (I say with so much love)!
She does this to me.
She up and posts a picture of herself in something I’ve admired from a far. Something that I’ve been uncertain would “work on me,” but works on her, satisfying the “trend in fashion” loving sides of us both.
Today, her posting not only talks about her obsession with black and navy (great minds think alike), but also discusses the return of the drop waist dress, like VB’s for her own S/S 14 collection (royally panned when she wore it at NYFW if you recall). Joanna’s Marks and Spencer version fits closer to the body, and is really sweet in its shaping.
So, once again I’ve been pushed over the fashion hump from I’m not sure to but I really want to!
With proper styling (booties and a good dose of metal hanging from the neck and wrist), this 42-year-old mother is going to let herself fly free in fashion forwardness. I’m much too old to drop it like it’s hot, but in dresses? Why not have some fun!
Drop it or not? It seems that opinions fall very strongly on either side of the waistline.
