Fit, Flare & Frills
Shop the look:
Less is more can be a fine way to approach style some days…but, more often than not, I like adding a little extra frill to an already showy ensemble. This fit and flare dress would be plenty fine on its own…but, I just love the way it looked with a little extra oomph. My experiment into the world of petticoats is proving to be a successful one! Haha. I really do like these inexpensive ones from Amazon for now. (Maybe I’ll invest in some pricier, higher quality ones one day.)
And this floral dress was another find from inexpensive online retailer, Fashionmia. This dress is only $22! Not too shabby. I really like it! Two things to note about it, though: 1.) I had to size down. (I’m usually a medium, but with this dress I needed a small.) So, be sure to check the measurements! 2.) The material is a bit on the shiny side. It’s not that big of a deal. But in comparison to say, my Closet London skater dresses, it’s noticable.
Just a reminder too, I’m on vacation in New Zealand right now! I should be getting ready to go bungee jumping in Queenstown shortly after this post publishes! (Which should go really well…especially considering I’m terrified of heights. Haha.)

Aw, thank you! 🙂
Beautiful dress with or without the petticoat! You’re so brave to go bungee jumping! 🙂
Aw, thank you, Laurie! 🙂
I also love petticoats, dear Lindsey, and I loved this floral fit and flare dress with the petticoat! I loved the outfit and the shoes, oooh, love these shoes! You really look very beautiful and very feminine! I feel a bit better knowing that you are in dew Zealand and wouldn’t be able to read an email with suggestions now, because I promised to write and I will – but I am having sooo busy-chaotic weeks right now! Enjoy NZ a lot and bungee jumping too! Hugs!
Oh gosh, thank you, Denise! And don’t worry about it! Today was the first day I was actually able to go over my emails. 🙂
Fit and flare is the most flattering dress-shape and petticoats… my goodness! So adorable. I have several and recommend them to all my gal-pals. Also, I love this hem-length on you. It reminds me of the 1940’s which was a very stylish period.
Aw, thank you so much! 🙂
Wonderful dress! I like the pattern and cut! You look really gorgeous!
Have a nice weekend:)
Aw, thank you!
Loving this dress! You look so cute <3
Aw, thank you!
I agree that having fun with the less expensive dresses makes me feel better. Then if I end up not wearing them as much, I don’t feel guilty
Oh yes, I agree! 🙂
