If you liked the style, but not the colour, Nordstrom also offers the same item in sleek black--and saying so provides us with the perfect excuse to post another utterly bewitching image of Barbara Brickner (who continues to create increasingly beautiful images, impossible as this may seem).
The fit of this piece is marvellous--a "shaped, tailored fit," as Nordstrom calls it. Another sign of progress in the plus-size fashion industry is its continuing realization that the more body-embracing the fit, the better, when it comes to adorning plus-size beauty. And this "babydoll" style is especially attractive on a figure as curvaceous as Mrs. Brickner's. In fact, this design should rightly come with a disclaimer showing an image of the model wearing it, accompanied by the words, "You must be at least this curvy to wear this outfit."
Torrid carries a wide variety of similar styles in pastel shades and vibrant berry/dessert hues, without the paisley pattern. But one attractive quality of this dark colour is how effectively it sets off an ornate accessory, such as this vintage-style crucifix. Kudos to the stylist for adorning the model with such a gorgeous piece of jewellery. It is an "Old World" touch that adds considerably to the overall look.
