To keep or not to keep

In my last Martin and Osa order, I bought this dress partly as a way to get free shipping (my order was just under the minumum). I knew I would love the color but thought it might be too high waisted for me to pull off. When the order arrived this week, the dress wasn't as bad as I thought it could be. I have a long torso and sometimes dresses like this make me look preggo. DH liked it on me. What do you think? Is it a keeper or a return? I wouldn't pair it with those shoes, they just happened to be nearby when I was trying it on.

I also ordered two more of my favorite Ruffle Plackett Tank this time in purple and black. If anyone out there buys this tank, don't put it in the dryer. It will shrink. I learned that lesson with my navy version. I also ordered the Double Layer Hoodie in lavender. I'm not going to post a picture of me wearing it, because it is BAD. Although very soft, the hoodie has two lumpy pockets that hit my problem areas. This shirt makes my hips look like they have lumps of fat. No thank you!


  1. I really love the dress on you! I know just what you mean about a higher waist and like it's maternity-- but this doesn't look that way at all. Very cute!! In fact, I may have to check this out myself! :)

  2. Great dress. Looks lovely on you!

  3. I think this is cute. Esp if it's a red that works for you. Keeper. Add a bracelet or something and if you're not at work, unbutton another button. ;-)
