Can we talk about babydoll dresses for a minute?
I like a nice empire waist as much as the next bosomless broad but I'm on the cusp of being over these flouncy Dainty June dresses.
I'm damn near 30 years of age. Is there a cutoff point for for little-girl gear before I become a sad impression of an over-the-hill nymphet?
Despite my age range propriety issues, I actually love wearing this dress... The cut is well-fitted and
versatile, the low neckline leaves room for a lot of styling
possibilities, and the short length works for a lot of shoes. I may or may not occasionally sleep in it, even.
And this dress (and the versions of it I own in red and
black) has nobly served me for the past decade or so. It's just
that, for the first time in my life, I am beginning to wonder if I'm too old to wear something.
Help! How do you know when you've outgrown a trusty standby silhouette?
