There are some pieces in my wardrobe that just make me feel like a ‘natural woman’, as the song would say. When I slip them on, my stride gets a little more graceful, my hips sway a tad bit more and my posture gets so tall you’d swear I was trying to balance a book on my head.
This red and white dress that I wore to the Harlem Fashion Row luncheon last Friday is one of those pieces that does it for me. I picked it up during a shopping haul at one of my favorite boutiques, Jewel’s Vintage Closet, not long ago. It’s so dainty while at the same time being timeless and chic.
