I confess I am pretty confident in my body. On the outside I can’t say my weight has bothered me because I think I look great. Even though that is the case we all know that there is always that one part of our body that we can’t stand. For me it’s these flabgastic arms of mine. I can’t explain to you how much I hate my arms and while I am working on it, it’s still a work in progress.

This has prevented me from wanting to wear anything sleeveless. As you can imagine during the Summer months it seems that’s all there is to wear. The other day I was invited out to lunch with my aunt. It was a sweltering 90+degrees here in New York, and wearing jeans was just not going to cut it.


Of course the amazing Gwynnie Bee was there to save the day , as earlier that week I had received the Swak Lucy Maxi Dress from Gwynnie Bee’s new arrivals collection.  I admit I was terrified to wear this dress because I had just started experimenting with wearing my arms out for quick outings such as running errands but not for actual places where people could sit and look at my arms for any extended period of time.

This dress was super comfortable. I love the empire style waist and the flow that I created downward. I didn’t have to wear a girdle and all my tummy issues were hidden. I paired the dress with a pair of gold sandals from Payless and a green and gold bracelet from Adorn Jewelry.


My only complaint about this dress is the length. I think it works much better for a taller person. I am barely 5’2 so naturally it was hitting the floor on me. That being said the length of this dress elongated me. i think it’s safe to say that this dress is big enough to go down a size in.

  1. I think you look beautiful. That is a great dress and I love your confidence. My thing is color. I almost always feel uncomfortable in colors.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb
    usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb
    job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for
    me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!
