THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS: Free People Salina Foil Print Dress

I've really been sporting lace lately.  I came across this little black dress in Nordstrom Rack last week and thought it was so pretty and classy.  They used to sell it at Nordstrom for $128, it is now on Revolve for $90, and $45 at Nordstrom Rack.  There is a dress within the dress.  The inner layer is much shorter than the outer layer.  The outer layer fans out, whereas the inner layer is much more form fitting.  This combination gives the dress a rather unique look.  Because the dress starts fanning out below the chest, it makes you look taller and is more forgiving in areas where unwanted visceral fat lies.  I find this design to be effortlessly flattering for the pear shape ladies out there.  However, for very slim, petite girls, after you shorten the straps, it will make your chest look smaller because the dress would not accentuate the waist.  Also, there are subtle gold specks that scatters throughout the dress.  The gold specks do not sparkle.  But, it gives a hint of color that catches your eye to the beautiful lace pattern.

These shoes are sold out in many places because it's an older style.  But, there are some available at Nordstrom Rack and Ebay.

These are the most comfortable heels I own.  I found these last week at Nordstrom Rack and I've been wearing them everywhere.  They virtually go with anything and are wide enough so they don't hurt my feet.  In fact, they are more comfortable than some flats I own.  Also, they make my legs look much slimmer and longer.  For the quality and comfort, $45 is well worth the price if you can find them in the Rack near you.  The only bad thing about sling back shoes is that I can't wear them with boot cuts or flare pants because the back of the pants will always get caught between my heel and shoe.  Nonetheless, I'm so happy I found them!  They are my new go to nude pumps. ^.^  Happy feet, happy me :)
