Do you wiggle when you walk?
This is not quite a wiggle dress. It’s not tight enough along the hem to qualify as a true wiggle dress. The term is quite a descriptive designation for a particular style of a tight dress or a pencil skirt where the hem is narrower than the hips. Walking in heels, in such a dress, creates a bombshell wiggle. True wiggle dresses do not have a slit skirt but I saw one on Facebook the other day that was slightly pleated. It was beautifully photographed and modeled.
This picture was on Simply Feminine, which is a brilliantly curated Facebook page of things that are feminine. (Her taste is brilliant and her choices are impeccable.) It was of Rachel Ann Jensen modeling for Heart my Closet. This is an online boutique of vintage inspired clothing that can be custom made and has very reasonable prices. Rachael, evidently, wears an old-fashioned Corset underneath. (To die for and I’ve ordered one from her affiliate link to Orchard Corset.)
My fancy, new (copper satin with black laces) corset hadn’t arrived at the time of this writing but let’s hope I don’t get tangled up in the strings and hurt myself. (I’m not always coordinated.) In the meantime, I decided that being over 50 should not prohibit me, or my dazzling arsenal of outstanding women, from wiggling whenever (and wherever) we wish.
So I shopped my closet for what I could find and here we have the quick, no corset, sheath dress that is behaving, almost but not quite, as a wiggle dress. (The side slit prevents it from obtaining status as a true wiggler.)
I’ve paired it with nude, peep-toe pumps and a Coach bag. Vintage style and my rebel mind means the shoes and bag match.
So lovely people, let’s remember to throw some wiggle in our personal style.
