Quilted Drop Waist Dress

quilted drop waist dressWhen I saw this quilted drop waist dress, I initially wasn’t going to bother trying it on because the 1920s silhouette doesn’t usually look very good on my figure. I have a much smaller waist and very wide hips, which doesn’t usually jive with a drop waist dress. But I grabbed it anyway and proceeded to the dressing room.

It is ultra comfortable, but looks really stylish with the quilting pattern. I can definitely see wearing this dress to work this winter with black or gray tights and little booties.
