There is nothing subtle about a 6’4″ woman wearing a strappy 3″ sandal, a bold black and white, graphic chevron print, form fitting, to the floor maxi dress. Let’s not forget big hair and a vampy red lip. This mommy will be bringing sexy back when the hubby and I have our Mother’s Day dinner date. As this outfit is hubby approved, I think his exact words were and I quote, “that by far has to me my favorite dress.” I think this dress will make quite a few strategically spread out date night appearances with the Mr.
Review : Teresa Stripe Maxi Dress from Alloy.com
I ordered this dress in an extra-large extended length size. I normally wear a size 12-14 or large in most items and I probably could have gotten away with a large in this dress. The reason I decided to upsize was because I didn’t want the pattern to go out of whack by being stretched and I wasn’t sure how thick the material would be. Also when white is involved with fabric, it has a tendency to show everything. But this fabric which is a polyester/rayon/spandex blend was thicker than expected and a slip wasn’t necessary. I do have on shape wear to hold in all my jiggles..lol and there are no visible undergarment lines showing with this dress, which is a major plus. What I also notice is that the pattern of this dress is actually quite slimming. My only issue with this dress would be that it does show quite a bit of cleavage and I’m thinking this is probably due to the fact that I upsized to the extra-large, so it is a bit roomier up that area. The extended length is 63″ long and as you can see from the pictures above, with my 3″ heels, it still grazes the floor on me. For the price (under $50), the way I feel and look in this dress, and the fact that my husband has favorited this dress, I would say that this dress gets a Pretty Tall Style stamp of approval.
You can find this dress here and as I’m writing this post it is currently on sale.
