I was walking into the Christian Siriano show at NYFW this past September when I caught sight of Courtney Kerr.  As my close friends know, I unwind at the end of a long day of child rearing with a glass of sauvignon blanc and trashy reality tv.  It’s not my proudest accomplishment but you name it, I’ve probably seen it.  Real Housewives?  A given.  Shahs of Sunset?  Guilty.  The Vineyard?  No, I too have standards.  Fine fine..I’ve seen every episode.

Anywhoo, so it was while watching yet another one of my respectable shows, Most Eligible Dallas, that I came to know of Courtney Kerr.  I loved her style, her big personality and was really rooting for her to find love throughout the season.  So, I was a little starstruck when I caught sight of her outside the show.  She looked fab in this voluminous plaid dress with exposed shoulders.  I just assumed it was some ridiculously pricey item and I didn’t look into it after that.  Then, I saw it on another blogger and it was from ASOS!

I love this dress.  The plaid print is very on trend, as we’ve discussed a lot here.  The cut is so oversized, dramatic and lends itself to great swingy movement as you strut.  And if you’re going to consume large amounts of food or are having a fat day, THIS is the dress for you.  It’s so voluminous but looks very chic and intentional so no one has to know you’re hiding a food baby under there.

  1. This is fantastic and I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in anything like this before. It reminds me of Junya Watanabe and other avant-garde designers. It grows on me more and more… think I might need it for my last month of pregnancy! ;)

  2. Hana: You should definitely get it! I was also thinking how perfect it would work as a maternity dress for a skinny mini like you!
