Outfitting: Fresh snow

I snapped this dress as soon as it went live on the ModCloth site. Something about the lacy flowery thing on the front just caught my attention and imagination. I liked the shape of it too - one thing about working with a bunch of women with great style is that I notice they are very careful about the cuts, shapes and silhouettes that work with their bodies. I'm still trying to figure this out for myself, but this is one that I feel comfortable in.

The only complaint I have is that the fabric of the skirt clung ferociously to my tights, and would ride up in a kind of unflattering way. I guess I'll have to try it with high socks next time.

not sure about the waste line area, maybe the cling factor isn't working so well, like it from waste up...
I think it's a cute dress and fits you well, but I've got to agree with the previous poster that there's a bit too much cling going on. Try wearing it with a slip underneath or go a size up—I shouldn't be able to read the texture of your tights through your dress! Also, I hope you don't mind me saying this, I feel like the dark/busy texture on the tights detracts from the beauty of the lace neckline of the dress.
Thanks for the feedback, peeps - duly noted. Will wear the dress without tights next time! :)
