Another Pretty Dress

Hey everyone! You can see I’m having a love affair with dresses right now. I feel like I hit the jackpot at JC Penney for finding dresses that had stretch, fit nicely and had such pretty patterns. Here is another!

I’ve already shown two other dresses from JCP here and here. They are all the same style, the sheath style, and have the light fabric that hangs well without clinging. Here is the plus-size versions in coral and here in a dramatic pattern. Here are a few of the other pretty patterns they have.

  1. I love dresses and this one is no exception. My problem — they are all too short for me. It’s ok in winter when I can wear black tights, but when summer rolls around, I pull out the few tried-and-true, slightly-below-the-knee standards I wear year after year. This makes me sad as I’d like to be more current and stylish —

  2. Hi Julia and a belated Happy Birthday to you! I hope you had a fabulous day. This blue dress is perfect on you, such a great colour and fit. Your blog is really going from strength to strength and I do hope that you had lots of takers for your birthday montage which I might get to see soon?
