Happy Monday to you!

Dress 1: Marchesa Notte/Dress 2: Zac Posen/Dress 3: Black Halo/Dress 4: Oscar de la Renta/Dress 5: Zac Posen

Hi ladies! Once in a while, we have important occasions that require us to dress to the nines. Consequently, we rush to our favorite stores or boutiques and try on everything! While we love many styles, not all dresses are compatible with our body types. For instance, I love the red Zac Posen dress featured in this post. However, I know it would not flatter me because I have a small waist, flat stomach, and wide hips. To accomodate my body type, I would have to purchase a size up from my normal dress size, which would make the stomach area of the dress bulge. Since I don't have a tailor on hand for every outing, I would have to bypass that dress. However, the Oscar de la Renta dress has the structure that is most suitable for me. It highlights my flat stomach and tiny waist, flows out and away from my hips, and still maintains a classic structure.

In the comment section below, let me know which dress is most flattering on your body type?  



Isaiah 44:8 Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it?And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.” 9 All who fashion idols are nothing, and the things they delight in do not profit. Their witnesses neither see nor know, that they may be put to shame. 10 Who fashions a god or casts an idol that is profitable for nothing? 11 Behold, all his companions shall be put to shame, and the craftsmen are only human. Let them all assemble, let them stand forth. They shall be terrified; they shall be put to shame together. 12 The ironsmith takes a cutting tool and works it over the coals. He fashions it with hammers and works it with his strong arm. He becomes hungry, and his strength fails; he drinks no water and is faint. 13 The carpenter stretches a line; he marks it out with a pencil. He shapes it with planes and marks it with a compass. He shapes it into the figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, to dwell in a house. 14 He cuts down cedars, or he chooses a cypress tree or an oak and lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a cedar and the rain nourishes it. 15 Then it becomes fuel for a man. He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it. 16 Half of it he burns in the fire. Over the half he eats meat; he roasts it and is satisfied. Also he warms himself and says, “Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire!” 17 And the rest of it he makes into a god, his idol, and falls down to it and worships it. He prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god!” 18 They know not, nor do they discern, for he has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, and their hearts, so that they cannot understand. 19 No one considers, nor is there knowledge or discernment to say, “Half of it I burned in the fire; I also baked bread on its coals; I roasted meat and have eaten. And shall I make the rest of it an abomination? Shall I fall down before a block of wood?” 20 He feeds on ashes; a deluded heart has led him astray, and he cannot deliver himself or say, “Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
