The good thing about dresses is that with so many different styles and shapes, most everyone can find one that is flattering on their body. I have found some stunning dresses for summer and really have been drawn to the pocketed dressed. Although some pocket dresses tend to make me look wide where I prefer not to, some are perfect. From Vera Wang Lavendar Collection, the Vera Wang Strapless Dress is light and flirty and perfect for summer. The outside pockets that fall under the empire line waist can be flattering for many. I love the fitted bust which features ruching. Via NAP for $430.
I think it's one of those dresses that I could go either way on. I love the ruching and the empire waist. The length is nice too and the bare shoulders are stylish. But, I don't know about the pockets.
The fabric is a lovely color, but I can't tell from the picture if it's silk. If it not, I'd probably pass on it, b/c I don't think it would hang as nicely.
