For the Modamix blogger event during Full Figured Fashion Week, I wanted to wear something fun and comfortable. I loved this striped dress from ABS Allen Schwartz. The a-line skirt was easy to wear, and the sheer accents at the shoulders, waist, and above the hemline add visual interest.

This is actually an upcoming new release from Gwynnie Bee, which I love.  I really appreciate the increase in fashion forward items, including ones I probably would not have tried otherwise (this dress retails for $288, and I probably would not have taken a risk ordering it online with that price tag).
