This belted sheath dress from Express features a slightly retro vibe and is right up my style alley. It flatters even my minimal curves, so I can only imagine how smashing it’d look on someone more voluptuous. Although the black color is sharp and more versatile for year-round wear, I was drawn just a little more to the soft pink (which is also lovely for Valentine’s Day)! Express is having 30% off dresses right now – also check out this work-appropriate twist front dress or this simple sheath in a sunny hue, both available starting in xxs.
This dress fits narrow however doesn’t come in petites, so I’ll be hemming mine 2 inches (to hit right below the knee) but wanted to show the original length. Also note the button down front is a faux feature and stitched shut. This is a bummer for nursing mamas, but good news for others since there’s no risk of an inadvertent peep show! I ended up sliding the dress off one shoulder at a time to breastfeed. The fabric is very stretchy with a crepe-like feel, and a full stretch lining and side zipper. Measurements of xxs: 12.25″ across the waist, 15″ across the armpits, 16″ across the hips, 14″ from top of shoulder to waistline, 38″ total length.
We took these photos at Citrus & Salt, one of the prettiest pink spaces in Boston for brunch or girls night (and an Instagram’er favorite, for obvious reasons!). We usually get their guacamole, fish tacos, and either dole whip or the daily soft serve to share.
