As absolutely wonderful and generous as Linda is, there is one thing that she has never been able to bequeath us: her bone structure. Back in the swingin’ 70’s when she was prowling all across the Philadelphia metropolitan area, foxy Linda was a size goddamn ZERO. Goyam.
We jewish ladies are, as the tribe says, “zaftig,” meaning that we’ve got tatalas, tushies, and if we fall off the wagon with the carbs, a bit of the tum tum. But you know what? We make it work.
For all of you out there who know what I’m talking about: let me introduce you to the fit ‘n flare dress. Katy, Betsy, and I have closets full of them. Nothing, and I mean nothing, fits a Feinberg figure like a fit ‘n flare. Below are some nice picks from around the internets that I highly recommend.
- ASOS Skater Dress: I’d wear this to work in the fall, give it a spin for JTJ and OLP at Thanksgiving Dinner, and then pull a triple threat and whip it out for the office holiday party. Plus major points for pulling at mom’s heartstrings: show that woman some tartan and I guarantee the garment’s on her. What a lady!
- ModCloth Snow Wonder Dress: If this shiz doesn’t make your boobies look awesome and waist look tiny, I don’t know what will. Uncle Jay gave us dresses just like this for Hannukah a few years ago from Tahari, and I still wear mine on the reg. Never gets old.
- Z Spoke Zac Posen Fit and Flare Dress: I wore this number to a wedding in September courtesy of Rent the Runway. It bordered on being almost too busty, but worn to the right event that might not be the worst thing. The material is this thick taffeta-like shiz that I’ve never seen before, but conveniently conceals whatever’s underneath. A vintage JTJ showstopper of a necklace, my prized pair of Loubs, and a camel-colored pashmina made it a great ensemble for an event at a vineyard on the North Fork.
