If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I love ballet-inspired fashion. When I spotted this dress at Forever21+, it had me at the tulle. The full skirt just feels fun and special.

Forever 21 can be a pig in a poke for finding quality clothes that look mature enough for a 30-something professional. When I do find something though, I am usually quite happy with the fit. Because Forever 21 has more of a juniors’ fit, their XL is often perfectly proportioned for my petite curvy frame.

This dress required no alterations. While it’s a little longer than featured on the web site, I love the longer fit.
I added a burgundy velvet jacket, sparkly belt, and floral satin lace-up heels for an evening feel.
I decided to skip tights, but you could easily add some glittery or lace tights for a little extra warmth.

Right now, I have nowhere special to wear this outfit, but I would definitely wear it for a winter wedding or dressy holiday party. I don’t usually purchase dressier items without some place to wear them, but I think this dress has a classic feel that I will love for years to come. When an event comes up, I’ll have something to wear! 🙂
