Taking My Own Advice

I am sure you wonder if I take my own fashion advice…..and I can honestly say, I do!  For example, you might remember this post where I advised readers to get to know a great tailor.  I believe customizing your clothing to fit perfectly is key to a fabulous wardrobe.  A few months ago I did a complete overhaul of my closet.  I sent items I haven’t worn in 12 months (my rule of thumb) to consignment, donated some items that were worse for wear and made a small pile of items that I still loved but didn’t fit properly. The dress below was originally purchased when I was 8 months pregnant and I wore it for Prestons shower here.  The dress is by my favorite Philadelphia brand Sava and it was not maternity, so at the time I sized up considerably to make room for my ever expanding waistline.  I am still completely smitten…loose flowing silk, soft tie dye print….what’s not to love?  I decided to take my own advice and brought it to my local tailor (along with a few other items) and had it sized down to fit me now that all the baby weight is gone.  What do you all think?  I wore this to dinner with my husband before he heads out of town this weekend.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and have an awesome weekend!

    Love this so much! I have started looking at things I like that may be too big or oddly fitting and thinking “this could work with a taylor”…..really helped me find styles I like that actually fit me. Thanks for all the advice!

    I love the dress on you both ways! The tie-dye is so pretty.

  4. Love the kaftan style!! And yes, a tailor can do wonders, sometimes with just a bit of nip-tuck, a piece looks million times better! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
