Yes, I am fully aware that this new dress of mine violates virtually every rule ever written for short pear-shaped women, such as myself.
First of all, there’s the obvious – it’s a maxi dress. Rumor has it, maxi dresses overwhelm shorties and make us look even stumpier than we already are.
Secondly, it’s a horizontal stripe print, not only drawing attention to, but even exaggerating the look of my already ample hips. What crazy person does that?
Third, it’s knit, which tends to hug and cling to every bulge on my body. Curvy women are strongly advised to stick with structured clothing that flatters our shape.
Yeah, I get it.
But do you know what?
I don’t care.
