Do you know what looks good on you? Apparently I don’t. More on that + the flowy maxi dress with sleeves I get complimented on the most (bonus: it’s on sale!)…
Do you know what looks good on you?
I thought I did. But this dress has me thinking otherwise.
Now don’t get me wrong, I picked this dress out (the brand kindly sent a lookbook and let me choose from their collection).
But the colors aren’t my typical palette, and when I put it on I thought it washed me out.
I assumed Fred Baby would agree, but he ended up loving it. He said it actually made me look TAN — the complete opposite view I had of thinking it washed me out.
I wore it to an appointment, and an older gentleman went out of his way to come over to tell me that I looked “absolutely fabulous.” That kindness made my day — and was unexpected at a doctor’s appointment.
Even though I love the cut and flowy-ness of this dress — it’s SO comfy — I just thought it seemed a bit more boho than my normal look and that the colors are much softer than the poppy hues I normally gravitate towards.
But it got me to thinking…
Do I know what looks good on me?
I wore it again on Sunday and my best friend said “Wow, you look darling.”
I think I’m most surprised at how much joy this dress seems to bring to others — I see the sparkle in their eyes — and how I could be so wrong. Haha.
Anyway, I thought it was a fun question to ponder:
Do YOU know what looks good on you?
