Reader Request: Wedding Dresses

Alex hit me up with this fabulous request:

A few days ago, I bought my wedding dress! Yay! And I had a particularly awesome experience. From paying attention to not only wedding blogs that I trust but also to you regarding clothes and bodies and how they can be best friends, I knew what I wanted, and I got it, because I knew what to look for and how to find it.¬†Although I am now done with this fun and exciting experience, I’m still curious to see what – if anything – you have to say on the topic of wedding dresses. I know it’s a whole can of worms to open, and it’s very different from day-to-day clothing, but if you have insights, I’m sure they’re fascinating and could really help someone! read more

Keeping Warm During Holiday Party Season

There are as many ways to dress stylishly for holiday parties as there are women, and I’m always loathe to dish out specific outfit advice. BUT! Since holiday parties require a certain level of fancy, and since fancy and warm seldom go hand in hand, I am more than willing to offer up a few ideas for keeping warm while looking gussied.

Long sleeves OR long skirt

In most cases, long sleeves and a long skirt will feel like an awful lot of coverage. Some dresses balance both beautifully, but more options will do one or the other well. Floor-length dresses are considered to be formal, so if you’re attending a black-tie event or charity auction or similarly fancy affair, going maxi will keep you warm and help you feel appropriately attired. If it’s a less formal, cocktail-or-below event, long sleeves and a shorter skirt can work just as well. read more
