Are you looking for a dress that’s simultaneously comfy, flattering, and like, totally faaaar oooout? I always am, so imagine my happiness upon finding this “evil twin flare skater dress” by Mink Pink while shopping at one of my favorite stores last weekend. This dress somehow magically knows just where to flare out to hide my food babies, making it an ideal candidate for summer barbecues. And it’s stretchy, so it doesn’t constrict me when I’m riding my bike. $100 was a bit of a splurge for me, but I think it will pay for itself in the amount of time I will not spend looking dumbly through my closet wondering what the hell to wear when I want to look cute and hide my burrito babies and have myself a Saturday that starts at noon in the park and ends around 5am at some weird Goth party in Bed-Stuy. Time is money, people!

Plus, the more I stare at it, the more it kind of reminds me of a cheap and casual version of that gorgeous McQueen number that Jennifer may or may not have purchased recently for approximately one dillion space bucks. So really, if you think about it, this dress is saving me money. One dillion minus one hundred dollars, to be precise.
