I've been openly complaining about Old Navy and the quality of their dresses, but I am pleased to share that this cutie is a nice weight jersey and I think it's great, and it's a great value. It also comes in a black and white stripe, which I also bought. I've talked about big girls wearing horizontal stripes before, and I stand by the fact that I see no problem with it. The common perception is "horizontal stripes make you look wider, and what big woman wants to look wider?"
I don't get that at all. Y'all, I'm wide. Wearing or not wearing stripes won't disguise that fact, you know? In fact, I will go so far as to say I love what this dress is doing with my hips! I am very apple-shaped, all of my weight is distributed in my midsection. So the widening effect of the horizontal stripes actually works to make me look a little more hourglass-shaped. I look like I have big ol' hips and I'm loving it.

Oh, and by the way, we didn't eat Arby's that night- though that would've been a perfect dinner, all things considered.
