Maximize the smallest part of you

image (2)Let’s not talk about those last 10lbs I’m still fighting with. It’s clear they came to battle and will not go away without me bringing my “A” game…Pilates on South Beach, that means you. I’ve already mentioned my love for circle/skater skirts and the same love goes for the fit and flair style dress. Luckily for me, both styles are readily available from almost every designer at any budget level. I bought this dress the same time I bought my drop waist dress at Armani Exchange. I absolutely love the fit and cut of this dress…AND it actually has a bodice built in…so it definitely does the trick in highlighting the smallest part of my waist and hiding everything else. I wore this look to the Style Bloggers of Color conference here in Miami last week and I felt it represented me perfectly. It’s definitely Princessy, girly and black and white…well, that’s just always plain old chic ;)

I’m wearing:
Armani Exchange Printed Fit and Flare dress
Ippolita silver oval drop earrings c/o Saks (similar style here)
Christian Louboutin Miss Boxe patent wedge heels
YSL Belle du Jour clutch (check out the sparkly version here)

Lastly, when a fellow blogger asked me if this dress was an Alaïa, I knew I had made the right decision in purchasing this number. Like I said, dresses in this style are found in every end of the budget spectrum.

XOXO,
Martha
