I have found my new favorite boutique in Kansas City, Frankly Basic.
Within this boutique, I have added a few new additions to my wardrobe. This dress being one of my favorites. It is a very flattering piece. Hugging my chest in but also allowing me to breathe. It shows off my hips, but doesn't make them an unwanted focal point. The V-slit keeps it from feeling too stuffy, but it also doesn't suggest '10 cents a dance'. Needless to say, I've been trying to find excuses to wear it, and LA was at the top of that list.
SO, maybe the opportunity in LA that I found to wear it was to the Sunday drag show with bottomless mimosas. What can I say? It's a very versatile dress.
