I have to admit that I'm always the first girl to shy away from dresses that are loose around my midsection. I've always felt that because of my larger bust and hips, buying dresses that don't accentuate my waist really make me look like I'm with child. In fear of this, I can honestly tell you guys that I own skinny belts in just about every color to be able to cinch dresses at my waist when they're too loose. Over the past months, however, I've really pushed myself to try and accept shift dresses the way they are.
I blame this sudden change of heart on this peplum hem dress from ASOS. When I saw the black and white print and noticed that it also had pockets, I was sold! I have to admit that I was tempted to have it tailored at my waist when it first arrived, but it was so comfy on its own that I decided to just go with it - big hips and all!
