Passport Round-Up: DVF Dress

One my favorite scores from last weekend's shopping bonanza! This DVF Cassidy jersey wrap dress is simple enough for work and can easily be dressed up for dinner out or even a wedding. I wore it Monday with a black trench for my DMV appointment and photo.

The dress retails for $300+, I found it at Nordstrom rack for $125. The built in pockets are the best part.

I have a bit of a delicate question: How do you, um, keep this dress together? I always read that wrap dresses flatter everyone, but I'm so afraid that they're going to fly open in the middle of my work..... Any suggestions?

Fab, I love the flashes of color.

I didn't have any trouble with this wrap dress. If you're worried about the top, you could do a cami underneath. As for the skirt, you do sometimes have to hold it on the side when you're walking in the wind.

Another trick is to buy a wrap dress in a size up, you'll have extra fabric to work with.

Thanks!

Another trick I have used up top on wrap dresses is double-sided tape. It keeps the dreaded gap at bay. You can usually find it at a lingerie store, but I bet the hardware store variety would work as well.

I agree, wearing a cami underneath the dress works wonders.
