When I was in NYC last month with my friends at Gwynnie Bee, I reviewed this dress for them. They have something called First Fit Reviews where different people of all sizes try on and take photos in the same items. It's a great way to help people visualize what an item may look like on them, versus a model.
It's one of those items that, in my opinion, looks ghastly on a hanger. But as soon as I put it on: magic. (Press play!)
I think you could say I REALLY loved it.
I recently received it at home in my Gwynnie Bee box and loved it just as much.

Clutch, super old from French Connection (similar)
The cut out details were really fun and different. Yes, it's a cleavage window 😂 but also there are cutouts on each shoulder. The print is much more of a statement than I normally wear, but it's perfect for a night out.
For a day look, I threw on this super cozy sweater from J.Jill. It made the dress look like a skirt, and I loved that the shirt had a tie detail at the bottom.
The shirt will be a great transitional piece into warmer weather. Would love to layer this over some chambray!
