Sometimes, all you need is a great fitting dress. Of course the frills of fashion are great but the most important thing when it comes to styling looks is the fit. When the fit is right, everything else falls into place and you really don’t need any additional components if you don’t want to. Fit is key.
This dress is a perfect example of that. It’s understated in some ways yet all of the small details make it chic and special piece. While the dress has a simple silhouette, the color is what immediately struck me. It’s a beautiful Springtime hue that I knew was going to complement my skin tone well. The dress being from Gabrielle Union’s line at New York & Company, I knew that she had us melanin fashionistas in mind. The material is a sweater-like texture so it’s comfortable to wear yet conforms to your body. The vertical lines helps to define the waist and the criss-cross detail at the top gives off a subtle sexy vibe. It fits like a glove and I feel amazing in it! I love how New York & Company partners with celebrities such as Gabrielle Union and Eva Mendes to create these collections that are really made with all bodies in mind. Be sure to check out Gabrielle Union’s full line that includes items up to an XXL as well as plus sizes up to a 3X.

I’m having trouble with finding the right color for my size and the right styles for my size. It depresses me so, makes me not want to go out anywhere.
Everything you wear no matter what, YOU LOOK EXTREMELY GORGEOUS, please inform me your secrets to what to wear under fitted items to help with; “Babies Trademarks” that I’ve created after having my kids!
What a beautiful color and fit on you, will be ordering this dress now!
Thank you Melissa!
Somebody’s been working out! Your posture looks good, though you wear spikes in your modeling shoots.
Thanks so much Louise!
What size are you wearing? I can’t seem to find it in plus size…
I’m wearing a size XXL. This isn’t a plus size dress but has a lot of give and could easily fit plus size women as you can see. The XXL is the equivalent to an 18/20
You are absolutely gorgeous. I love the color and the way this dress fits you like a second skin. This dress can be worn for various occasions. New York &co. Here I come.
Thank you so much Judy!! And yes the dress is so well made that it makes it so easy to wear
