I absolutely love dresses, in theory.
I love them because they are just one item. No trying to make sure your top half goes with your bottom half. It lessens your decision making. One item and you're done! However I often find dresses a little hard to wear due to my size, so when I find one that works, I'm super happy.
This Sussan dress is a simple off the shoulder number that actually looks more flattering not off the shoulder (which is a clunky way to describe something). I find that being larger means I have to be careful that some styles don't accentuate my size. Some off the shoulder numbers look great and others aren't really flattering. You just have to try some different things when you're in the change-room. Don't write it off straight away.
I wore this dress on our final day on a weekend trip to Canberra. It was set to be a crazy hot day (38 degrees) and so I wanted something light and easy but that also looked "put together". I paired them with my latest obsession, my Witchery espadrille slides and bam - good to go.
