Personal Shopper: Kelly's Bra-able Shirt Dress

Kelly writes: "I am 52 and looking for a shirt dress with an empire waist, sleeveless that I can wear a bra with. Please help!!"

Eek, what a tall order! It became a wild goose chase trying to find an empire waisted shirt dress that didn't come from a maternity store that fit your budget of $60. All of these dresses are lightweight, cotton and wearable for a number of occasions. Don't forget, once you find a dress that you totally love and can't live without if only it weren't for those gosh darned sleeve, hack them off. Take them to a tailor or a crafty friend with a sewing machine. When you can't find fashion, you make fashion! -Magzilla

I love the LOFT dress. Loft is having 40% on everythings for the
July 4th weekend. You are only paying about $29 for the knit dress.
