I have this one dress that I wear for literally anything and everything. It's so versatile that even if I wore it five days in a row, no one would notice. While the dress can fit in with many styles and be worn to most occasions because of how I style it, it's truly the way the dress was made and the unique details it boasts.

I came across this Midi Bodycon Dress, which is fully lined with shape wear, from Cobalt District Clothing when the founder asked me for advice when creating her first line! She wanted to design a high-quality clothing line that was functional for the girl on the go. I was so surprised by this dress because, at first glance, it seems like your average black midi dress, but it's way more. The dress is crafted from a blend of sustainable Tencel and Merino Wool and its lining is made with "power mesh," which feels like non-restrictive shape wear. The high neckline makes this dress appropriate for work but fits like a body con dress made for the club. When I wear this dress, I don't feel like I have to sacrifice feeling sexy to feel "appropriately" dressed at the office. The asymmetrical hemline and slits give this dress an extra edge. I topped this dress off with my favorite plus size suede trench coat from Fashion Nova Curve. And I am also wearing some very special accessories on my wrist, which were made by my dear friend Natalia! This chic handmade jewelry is made to wear every day, and the bracelets can be customized with Swarovski crystals. When I wear these bracelets from Tali Espi Designs, I like to stack them! I am wearing the 14K Gold Filled Stretch Bracelets. If you want to try bracelets from Tali Espi Designs, or you want to give them as a gift, use the code NATALIE20 for 20% off!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing an XXL in the Midi Bodycon Dress from Cobalt District, which is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly. The dress is very stretchy, and while the lining is supposed to act as shape wear, it's still very stretchy. I am wearing a size 2X in the plus size suede trench coat from Fashion Nova Curve, which is my usual size, and the jacket fits perfectly!
