When it Fits Just Right

In early January, I wrote this post about my style resolutions for the new year and I wanted to give you a little update.  One of the reasons I started Whitney à la mode was to hold myself accountable for dressing more stylishly...so I might as well hold myself accountable to those resolutions, too!

While I haven't devoted much time to cleaning-out my closet, I have been more more conscious of clothing convenience and fit!  Everything I have purchased since the beginning of the year has been machine washable, no ironing necessary, and it all FITS!  I know, I know, all of my clothes fit.  But I mean that my new clothes really fit!  You'll know that an item is perfect for you when you don't have to fidget and you just feel so good!  I truly believe that attention to this detail will take an outfit from cute to wow!


This dress is an example of a perfect fit!  I purchased it during a trip to the Gap Outlet with a couple of girlfriends.  I knew from the moment I zipped it up that I felt good in it.  It flatters my pear-shaped body by highlighting my waist and flowing over my derrière and legs.  I love the stunning cobalt color and the animal print is fun without being too overwhelming.


I also think that this dress will be fun to remix!  Adding different blazers, cardigans, belts, tights and shoes will be an easy way to change-up the look.  Further, it layers nicely with tights for the winter but it will also be cute on its own when the temperature rises (soon, we can only hope)!

What were your New Year's resolutions?  Have you kept up with them?

  3. Darling dress, Whitney! I love that belt, as well - I've been looking for a wide belt like that for quite awhile now, and haven't found anything that I a) like, and b) can afford. Perhaps I'll need to check out Charming Charlie! :)
