I had meetings today that required a more traditional office attire. This dress was on major sale at Express a couple of years ago. Like 15 dollars sale. It is a size up than I normally wear. No problem–just belt it!
If you find something that is a bit too big, try belting it. This, however, does not work for items that are too big in the shoulder. Don’t ignore a great piece because it is too big, or get caught up in sizes. Sizes don’t matter. Fit matters.
I am wearing a dress from Express, Forever 21 belt, Chinese Laundry shoes, and a Rebecca Minkoff bag.
