Friday Frocks: Let Them Wear Drapes!

Ugh. It’s Friday and you have Nothing. To. Wear.

Well, don’t get all dramatic like Scarlett O’Hara and start ripping down the drapes (Gone with the Wind, ladies. If you have not read the book, run don’t walk to get a copy). While Ms. O’Hara may have gone a tad overboard, she was onto something. Draping. A trend that has stuck around for a few seasons now is a great way to look sexy and sleek while still hiding any “problem areas” (ha! as if we have any). In my mind, it’s a more modest version of the bodycon dress. It shows all your curves without requiring the use of Commandos and starvation.
