These choices just confirm for me a few things I already knew:
- I love a good A-line silhouette - it helps disguise a large booty.
- I love a full skirt - see 1 for the explanation.
- I love a fitted empire silhouette - one of my best assets is a small waist, I don't want to engulf it in a maternity top look.
- I love eyelet, the shirtdress, the kimono style and small cap sleeves this season.
