The Definition of Insanity

Einstein said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I keep falling in love with a dress because of the PRINT, and overlooking the STYLE. I know there are styles that look good on me…and styles that don’t. And you’d think that would be useful knowledge – We Have the Technology…Never Look Bad Again. But do I put that knowledge to use? Uhm. Not so much.

Elastic waist dresses. NO. No, Bettye, NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. Stop the insanity.

This dress – the print, the colors, DARLING. I hadda have it. The elastic waist? NO. My big belly means that the smallest part of my torso is NOT at my waist, but right below my bra-line. So every elastic waist becomes an empire elastic waist, and it’s like a big line in the sand with flashing red arrows and neon letters screaming BIG BELLY BELOW!

So the next time you see me trying on an elastic waist dress, please, smack me upside the head. Because know matter how cute the print, I do not like the look of this dress style on me.

That said, this IS a super cute dress and I know it will look darling on SOMEONE.

    1. The pattern IS beautiful…it IS a good length…and I AM so pretty (hee hee). But I look (to me) and feel better in some styles than others…and every time I try this style, I’m reminded that I don’t like it on me. I love a LOOSE (or just not stretchy) empire waist. I find THAT very flattering for my body type.

      Surely there are items/colors that you feel are unflattering on you…?
