From experience I know that waist definition in a dress is a must for me The dress fits perfectly on my shoulders and hips but the elastic "waist" sags down to about hip level. Not what you want when you are pear, X, hourglass or whatever shape I am. So my options are take the waist up, belt and blouson it or wear something like a vest over it for waist definition. Being the naturally lazy soul that I am, I chose the last option. Since the temperatures will soon stay in the 90's over the summer, maybe I should take up the waist?
Bluebird earrings--my design
Hopefully it brings out my blue eyes. I chose "pearls" and my bluebird of happiness earrings for fun.
