I generally do not opt for shift dresses. For some reason they just don't work very well with my body. However, I think think this shift dress is a stunning counterexample - isn't the print so gorgeous? My lovely mother-in-law purchased this dress for me for my birthday and let me tell you, I will be wearing it for years to come. It combines all of the things I look for in a dress: it's beautiful, it's heavy (necessary in San Francisco) and it is ridiculously comfortable. In fact, I'm curled up in it on my couch right now.
Have a great Thursday!
