Before: Shlumpadinka City

Serious Results
Proper fit makes all the difference with the often intimidating jersey dress (Old Navy, $35).

Bangles, Lane Bryant. Tights, Wolford. Shoes, Söfft
Lisa Kogan models Magaschoni looks.

Attention Getting
The decorated neckline (Magaschoni, $475) draws attention away from a tummy and up to a beautiful face. Pinstriped pants (Magaschoni, $390) are always a lengthening look. 

Bracelets, Lane Bryant. Boots, Payless.

Giddy With Success
Lisa didn't want to go sleeveless in the shift dress (Old Navy, $40), and she didn't have to. A cashmere cardigan (Marina Rinaldi, $435) keeps her chic and covered.

The Happy Ending
She tops the Old Navy dress with a tweed coat (Calvin Klein, $318) when it's chilly out. Patent leather pumps (Söfft) that fit her wide feet are a match made in makeover heaven.

Tights, Wolford. Bracelet, Lane Bryant. Necklace, Gerard Yosca.
