If there is a woman over 40 who mourns the fact that the baby-doll dress is over, I don't know her.
It was arguably the dumbest fashion trend for anyone our age.
Empire waist, puffy sleeves, and excessive yards of billowing fabric placed directly at our midsections -- too much volume!
Good riddance to a style that made everyone look pregnant, no matter what her age.
The silhouette of the moment is still swingy, trapeze-style, and voluminous rather than skintight and straight, but the latest crop of dressy dresses exercises more volume control than the baby-doll ever did.
