I bought this dress when I was eight months pregnant and couldn’t try it on. I had liked the open back detail so much that I threw caution to the wind (I NEVER buy without trying something on first!), and bought it in my usual size. A few months later when I was getting back to my pre-baby self, I tried it on for the first time only to realize that it fit really big for a size x. It was too late to return it and I was determined to wear the dress that I had envisioned slipping into for a romantic date night with Mr. Hunter back when I had been feeling so large and in charge (but mostly just large), so I got it altered. I maintained the integrity of the original silhouette by keeping it boxy, but it fits a lot better now! I love how it’s a ho-hum shift from the front and a show-stopper from the back.
I wore it here with my purple D’orsay, ankle-strap heels for an evening out on the town.
