I always love Topshop, so I was naturally perusing their section in Nordstrom the other day with my sister when she told me she wanted me to try on this dress. “I know you might not think it’ll look good on you, but I want you to try it on anyway!” I’ve always enjoyed shopping and talking everything fashion-related with my sister because she’s as into it as I am, likes taking risks, and she forces me to have the “try it on no matter what” mindset even if I’m hesitant it won’t complement my body type. So, of course I tried on the dress (a length I would normally shy away from with my 5’4 frame), and I immediately fell in love.
I’m encouraging all of my readers to take risks! Challenge yourself to try on several things you’d normally shy away from, and you might surprise yourself. I’m honestly pleasantly surprised with at least one unexpected piece every time. Fashion is about going outside of your comfort zone, testing your boundaries, and most importantly having fun. P.S. I’m showing two ways you can wear this dress (dressed up vs. dressed down) below!
