Hoping For an Illusion of Length




My Outfit
Lace Cardigan:
Dress: Topshop
Boots: Coach (5 seasons ago...who says i dont recycle?)
Ring: Mimi Jay (a new item in my collection)

Another outfit post taken in Florida... I wish it were warm enough here to wear this! Sadly, my legs wont be seeing the sun for a few months now.
This dress is quite short for a preggie but I like to think the lace cardi adds an illusion of length.
(This is the kind of thing I learned in my image consulting program at FIT.) I'm not sure I'd be comfortable wearing it without some sort of cover. The long lace in the back really does elongate and bring the eye farther down to a more appropriate level, dont you think? I sure hope so because I wore it to a holiday dinner with my in-laws last week!!

  1. I feel ya. Never anticipated my dresses to look so mini with a pregnant belly, but it'll go away. Cute boots. They look great with the dress.

  2. From the side you can tell you really have popped...you are just so cute!! I think the lace does draw the eye down and you still have the body to pull of the short dress!
