A new Nordstrom Rack opened in Union Square a few weeks ago, and after work one day a colleague and I couldn’t help but go check it out. It’s still so new and all of the merchandise is in its proper place, with amazing finds from some really fantastic designers. I spotted this Joie shift dress on the rack and picked it up immediately. The red and daisy print reminds me of my mom in the 70′s so much. I figured immediately that it would be too short, shapeless, or not suitable for my curves but opted to try it on. Much to my delight and surprise, I was immediately obsessed with it.
I love that even though the dress is essentially shapeless, it is still fun and flirty. The pleats give it some added interest, and when paired with nude shoes, my legs actually look thinner and a mile long. I threw on this leather jacket to give some form to the dress, but love it just as much without it.
I have a few belts that would work well with this style, and might play around with a belted option, but for now I can’t wait to pair this with more nude shoes for Spring, and tights and boots as we finish off this cold weather.
As I found this dress at a Nordstrom Rack, here are a few more similar options for your viewing pleasure!
