Here it is - my Old Navy petite wrap dress, in the flesh. I've worn it twice already, which is a sign that I really like it. Reviews suggest that it runs a bit tight in the arms - I agree, but they seem to loosen with wear. It also requires a moderate amount of boobage. Allow me to divert for a moment to share the Urban Dictionary definition of boobage:
boobage: "The noticeable presence of breasts. Could be because of the size, exposed cleavage or large number of noticeable breasts in a particular place. The truth is, of course that all boobs rule, (well, not man-boobs); be they big, small, fake or strangely shaped. The world would be a better place if all girls embraced their boobage. Set them free ladies. Set them free."
Hilarious. I could seriously browse the Urban Dictionary all day long.
Back to the dress. Somehow, the model is modestly withholding a camisole. I wouldn't recommend it, but hey, your boobage is your business (sorry, had to sneak it in one more time). The fabric is also pretty thin, so best to add a layer underneath. I get tunic tanks at H&M for less than $10 - they make great slips and come in a bunch of colors. If you want something more substantial, try M. Rena dresses (Shop Adorn online, also available at Sisu). They're reversible - V neck on one side, scoop on the other. They're comfy, wash well, and don't roll up.
I'm going to get a lot of use out of this thing. It's easy to dress up or wear casually. I even successfully wore a wrap dress as a skirt once, don't think I won't do it again. Someday, when I'm rich and locally famous, I'm going to own a Diane von Furstenburg wrap dress. I just decided this, just now.
