I received this dress in my Gwynnie Bee box this week and I felt like a queen all day! City Chic is a designer I discovered thanks to my GB subscription. With a quote like – “A girl should be 2 things…Confidently Curvy with a Passion for Fashion.” you can feel confident that this designer is out to make you look FABULOUS!
The Jewel Bloom Dress, $139, has a soft v neckline, tulle underlay, and smooth silk fabric. The padded bust and snug bodice combined with a high waistline emphasized my smaller waist. The tulle gives the skirt a flounce which hides wide hips. At 6’0 tall the hemline landed just below my knee, which is always a pleasant surprise.
In order to make the sleeveless dress work-appropriate, I added a short-sleeved cover-up.
