Deep-V Faux Wrap

I have to say that I’ve been really, really good about NOT making too many additional outfit purchase since my Cross Boarder Shopping Extravaganza earlier this summer.  Buuuuuuut, every now and again, usually when I finally make it into the office downtown, I maybe find an amazing piece or two that is simply too lovely to pass on.

Like this amazing sleeveless deep-V faux-wrap dress I saw hanging in a Winners rack just as I was leaving.  There isn’t much of a plus-size selection at many of the locations in the downtown core, or so I’ve found.  This dress that I fell in love with for instance, was a XL in straight sizes.  Dun dun dun…..

I didn’t even have time to try it on – just held it up against my body.   I decided that the DBA (designated-boob-area) was ample enough, the pattern and fabric forgiving enough, that I just ran it over to the checkout and hoped for the best.

Later that week I found myself running errands in The Duffrin Mall (who, I must say, have really stepped-it-up from the frightening array of shops it housed from my memories as a teen), and discovered these fab booties on sale at Reitmans…… regular price $60 — marked down to $14.99!!!!!!

And like that a country line-dancing outfit was born! 🙂

I rocked this outfit and made my way to Boots N’ Bourbon for their Thursday Night lesson + 1/2 priced appies and $5 beers!

Happy to say I wasn’t a complete disaster on the dance-floor.  Thank goodness for all the vid clips from my previous blogpost: Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy!

Giddy Up!

How I Got The Look:

Dress from Winners (Wellington/Yonge); Jean jacket from Old Navy; Booties from Reitmans; Aviator sunglasses from Elle Hardware (West Queen West); Bow earrings were a gift and vintage suede purse thrifted/gifted.

  1. I love the pattern of the dress. You really lucked out with finding a dress with enough dba! This is the hardest part about finding a good fit. Thanks for the lunchtime read 🙂

    • Yay! Love that you fit in reading this post over your lunchtime. Means a lot friend 🙂
      Yup….flattering fit is always top of mind. DBA is no joke!
      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Keep ’em coming! xo

  2. Super cute outfit Irene! I love your style and would love to raid your closet! That was some pretty awesome luck scoring this dress without trying it on. I did something similar with a Jo Fresh dress the other day….it worked out great!

    • Awww….thanks Marija! Happy to hear you’ve found such luck at JoeFresh. Always such a happy feeling, isn’t it? 🙂
      As for shopping my closet, I’m in the middle of putting together a Trend Trunk. Once its ready I’ll be sure to create a link/tab direct from the blog. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment lovely. xo
