An Evening Dress for Under $70?

Nordstrom says yes, and I’m a believer.

A recent cruise on the Nordstrom Web site revealed this dress on sale for $69.90:

Made of dupioni silk and fully lined, it seems to be made to order for any woman who has even the slightest fullness in the hips and thighs. (Yes, I know I talk about this body type all the time, but it happens to be one I know intimately.)

The color is smashing–if the real deal is anything like the way it appears on my monitor–blending a bit of purple with lush navy. Silver (and diamonds–real or faux) would be the perfect accent to take this dress right over the top.

  1. We can only hope the abbreviation wouldn’t be SAD. 🙂
    I just had to order the dress. It will be here on Tuesday, so you can see it in person.
    And you’re right, this is definitely a Michelle Obama dress…especially with her buff arms.

  2. It arrived today. The color has a purple cast to it, so it has more depth and richness. It fits perfectly through the torso and hips, but the top is too big. A quick pass by Christina Rose and it will be perfect!
