House Dressing?




I really liked this Tory Burch dress when I saw it at Bergdorf Goodman, but I've been questioning my judgment. Was it because the dress so closely resembled one of my favorite home decorating fabrics, Amy Butler’s Forest (above)?

It’s one thing to cover your chair in this fabric, but how about yourself?

That print made my eyes pop. You can do it.

I now have the dress at home. The colors are much more vibrant in person, which gives me pause.

And the dress fits in a reverse pear sort of way: larger in the bosom, smaller in the hips.

Has anyone had fit challenges with TB clothes?

I got a sweater from TB and wasn't happy with the fit—too large through the bustline, and sleeves too short. The quality was really nice, though.

Have you taken any photos of yourself in the dress? Is this reverse pear-shape not suitable for you? It certainly wouldn't work for me, with no rack to speak of.
