* Dress – H&M * Necklace – H&M * Pumps – Jessica Simpson Waleo via Nordstrom Rack *

There is really no other way to describe this dress but to say it’s perfect.  Okay, I did make a one adjustment I cut out the lining, that sucker kept bunching up on me.  I really want this dress in every color, it took everything in me not to buy the white version but I do believe I am going to make my way back to H&M and hope they still have it.  
This post is also the perfect time to discuss shape wear.  I was recently asked this question by Tia:
Can you recommend a good shaper?
I am not sure about anyone else but I have had my fair share of shape wear.  I don’t wear shapewear daily but on days that I need that extra smoothness under my clothes I wear this which I have on underneath this dress.  I have tried Spanx and they rolled up all day long and drove me insane.  I actually bought the Hanes Waist Hi-Half Slip on a whim while I was in Target one day.  I figured instead of trying shorts again I would try a shapewear skirt.  Shapewear shorts are okay but I like that fact that this slip feels and fits like a bandage skirt.  It does tend to ride up as a dress or skirt would when you sit but that isn’t a major issue for me. 
I was already feeling great in this dress but the control skirt gave me a little extra umph and made me feel more polished. 

Do you guys have any other good recommendations on shapewear?

    I think I found you from Kimberley's Fab finds under 50… regardless, I'm glad I found you/your blog. You look so super sassy! I love this dress too! Have a great day!

  2. This dress is EVERYTHING!! I love it!

    I'm a fan of the Hanes Torset Shaper I got from Target last year. You can wear it with your own bra and it smooths out the tummy. I also like  brief shaper underwear, they aren't sexy at all but they smooth it all in!

    My mama is old school she stays in Maidenform…lol I wash her clothes too so I see.

  5. I have a similar sheath dress from NY&Co and I love it also! My favorite shape wear at the moment is the Assets brand at Target.

  6. Girl, don't make me go to H&M and get that dress too! It looks great on you. I don't wear a shape wear. I guess I'm old class and just wear an old lady half slip with dresses. I'm going to check out what you have though

  7. Gorgeous!!! Wear ooh why are you tempting me to head to H&M??? Giggles 🙂 I need a sheath dress in a bright color pronto. I'm glad you were able to snag the,Walero pumps. I want to wear mine again soon. Xo!

  8. I usually wear the Flexess (sp) brand.  Nice dress.

    Thank you for letting me know about cutting the lining! I have gone back and forth about buying this dress. My hips cause it to raise up..I like a shapewear skirt for dresses but I havent found a good brand that works for me.

  11. Very sophisticated look! Love the pink! I was automatically drawn to your shoes! I remember  some time ago prissy was on a mission to find me these waleo pumps in nude! but they were all sold out! finally found one but it wasn't my size! 🙁 anyways they look amazing on you! very classy!

    I've never been happy with Spanx as they seemed to give me a "unibun" effect.  On the pricey side, but I am really happy with Wacoal's "Get In Shape Long Leg Brief".   It was just what I needed for a dress that showed my jiggles and cellulite without it.  🙂  And no "unibun" look.  I ended up ordering from Freshpairs where the shipping on US orders is free, and I didn't have to pay California taxes.  But I tried a few different ones on at Macy's (where I bought the dress.  I wasn't totally unethical.) to decide which flattered my shape.
