Nobody puts Baby in a Corner

Despite my hate for the baby doll dress I gave in and purchased this sequin LBD from Forever 21 for less than $20. It’s not that I completely hate baby doll dresses ‘it’s just that I’ve worn them  so frequently over the years that they bore me.

Not to mention the fact that the name “baby doll” infantilizes women . In fact the term “baby doll”,” was popularized by the 1956 movie “Baby Doll” starring  Carroll Baker in the title role as a 19-year-old nymphet, which essentially marked the beginning of the enduring popularity of this dress style for adults”.

But I digress, this dress is actually perfect for all seasons and for $20 you can’t go wrong. But please don’t ever call me baby doll.

Your style should not be defined by your size!
