8908_red_l_t1AMANDA WROTE: I formerly would have looked hot in this dress. I never go into Betsy Johnson, but it just screamed at me and my best friend from the window, it was SO ME…um, 20 years ago. I tried on the 10 and it looked good but in a ‘trying too hard, how much Spanx am I gonna need to pull this off’ kind of way. My friend suggests a 12 would be better, the lovely Debbie Harry-esque sales girl searches for me and tells me there are none in the system. In searching for the picture to post here, I now realize that is because Betsy Johnson doesn’t even make a size 12! Whatever. I found a cute dress at Anthropologie, a halter top no less, that I can pull of sans Spanx and still enjoy some bbq on my visit to the south. Btw, this is my first post on a blog ever, but i felt compelled to contribute. I feel like I have found my people!
