Next up from my trip thrift finds is this empire waist, a-line, nude dress. The style emphasizes one of the narrowest points on my body, and is even great for shorter women because the raised waistline can create the appearance of added height. It’s also a highly recommended style for women with wider lower bodies, myself included, since it draws the eye to the narrow upper body and can make the bust appear more curvy. The dress cost $8.99. I wore it with a pearl necklace, that was also a thrift find, which only cost $3.99. I paired the dress with my nude, Vince Camuto, heels that I got on sale last summer for $64.99.
