Definition: Empire

noun: A style/waist of dress that looks horrible on absolutely everyone.  Often goes with pointy witch shoes.

usage: Hey Greg, look at this Empire-waisted dress I just bought.  For some reason, me and all of my female friends love it, what do you think? Hey Greg, why are you crying?  Please don’t leave, I’ll wear something else.

    Apparently this is Meezy’s passive aggressive way of telling me he hated the dress I wore tonight. Thanks babe!

    Oh. That is passive-agressive.

    I wrote this post long before she wore her dress. And I’m not sure what there is to ‘get’. Empire (pronounced ‘om-peer’ if you are french or female or are in the fashion industry) is a style of dress where the waist is right below the boobs instead of on the waist. Which is funny because the term ‘waist-line’ refers to the area on our bodies we call a ‘waist’, so I don’t see why a dress should put the ‘waist’ at the ‘boobs’. It should be called the boob-line. Anyway, digression. It is those dresses where the fabric or seam changes right below the boobs and (IMO) is not flattering on the female body. However, Janet did wear one to a wedding that looked good, so maybe I’m just referring to ones that have the seam at the boob-line and then are flowing (not fitted) below. Those are the ones I hate.

    Ahh, okay. I think I just needed a little context.
