After many trips, tacos, cocktails, and very few visits to the gym, my waist needs all the help it can get. Seriously, I don’t even fit into my Spanx anymore. But I’m no quitter, a girl’s gotta eat, and it is Friday night so…I pulled out one of my many ruched little black dresses. They say, they being some fashion experts of importance somewhere, that black is always slimming so I own many, many (too many) black dresses. And thank the Lordt that ruching is trending and easy to find right now because it is a game changer, believe my faux waistline.
Too much room service in NYC made me thick as a brick right in the center of my body, and this waist-cinching dress makes it possible for me to go out on a Friday night and pretend to be presentable. Yeah, yeah I know I’m totally body shaming myself right now but here’s the thing, I weigh a certain amount, and that fluctuates from time to time, and I’m cool with that. During the times of
heavy eating and drinking fluctuation, I depend on fashion tricks. I have talked about my love of ruching and all the benefits before here, and I still stand by those statements.
If you don’t have a ruched dress, get one immediately, if not sooner. Trust my faux waistline. Do you have any fashion tricks you rely on? Tell me all the things in the comments.
