I bought several dresses, all different styles.
In some ways different, but actually consistent in other ways, esp. the core silhouette. You have a pretty clearly defined preference for what works for you.
Yeah, I need a defined waist but a specific type. I can't do a dropped waist for sure, my torso is short and it just ends up making me look thick, especially with how short I am. That's the reason my dresses end up being short too.
I bought two more dresses yesterday. One's a short black number with black sequins on top, and the other one is a red and black print with a sweetheart neckline. I'm not even sure how to describe the print, it's something between floral and abstract.
Now I just need shoes ...
