My Body Con Best (OOTD)

I’m going to be completely honest—I have never worn a body con dress. I’m sitting here trying to think and I’ve realized that…nope…never. Yes, I was a little scared of them. I’d see others pull them off with no effort and I felt a little intimidated. So, I never bought one. But, then one day Sealed With A Kiss Designs sent me their Kayla Tank Dress. I knew it was a test.

Here I am in all my body con dress glory. The Kayla Tank Dress is now an instant favorite. I threw on some shapewear and a nude lip for a quick night out. I will tell you that the fit of the dress is very curve-friendly—thanks to the awesome stretch jersey fabric.  It does come in other colors, but I’m all over this olive. I appreciate the length, hitting at the knee. Hubby thought it was a tad too revealing, but that’s OK. It’s nothing a  chic kimono won’t fix. I can’t wait to accessorize this dress for different looks!

What I’m Wearing: SWAK Kayla Tank Dress (1X), SKWilbur Onyx Tanzania Zebra clutch, assorted Torrid jewelry, and Vince Camuto Melle wedge.

FYI: Dress looks a little darker than it really is. Photos were taken at night with a flash.

    You look amazing! I’m not confident enough to wear this dress on it’s own, so I’m working on some layering options for it.


      @authemmie:disqus Thank you Emily! Yeah, I think I’ll definitely add layers next time.
