I am a bit confused by my own mixed feelings on this dress, which comes in both plus and regular sizes — but I think most of the negative feelings are alleviated by the fact that the dress is a faux wrap. On the pro side, I can’t remember seeing white stitching against navy like this, at least in a while, and I like that putting the white at the bottom is unexpected and light and airy. I think this can be a really polished, spring-y look for a variety of offices, particularly with a blazer or cardigan on top. (I’m loving the idea of kelly green, but gray, white, navy, yellow, light blue, purple, pink, orange — lots of colors or prints would work well.) The V-neck looks a teensy bit low to me, but I think that’s because I’m imagining that an actual wrap dress like this would mean fussing with it all day long while the neckline slowly got gapier and gapier. (Just me?) In fact, I don’t think I realized until now how many bad experiences I’ve had with wrap dresses. Huh. Still, if this were a “V-neck with self-belt!” I probably wouldn’t like it as much as I do now. Thoughts, ladies? It’s $128-$138 at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Dillards. Colorblock Faux Wrap Dress
