Even among plus size ladies, there are so many body types. I love seeing how different stylish ladies tackle the many issues that come with fit. For me, being short-waisted and essentially not having a defined waist at all has allowed me to experiment with how to play with proportion. Sometimes it is a hit, and sometimes it is a miss. Either way, it opens up my world to all the possibilities out there.
The last time I wore this bold, patterned skirt, I tucked in a lace top into it for a dressy look. This time, I decided to make it a little more casual and to use one of favorite tricks for “faking” a waist. By leaving my ivory tank untucked it makes my torso look visually longer. To make the outfit complete, I added a wide braided belt to define my “waist” and a denim jacket to disguise the fact the belt really does not go in the way a waist would. It almost implies that it curves in.
Luke decided to join me on this photo shoot as he kept hearing the camera click. He is absolutely running me ragged, but come on, who can resist that face?
I am also doing a little bit of pattern mixing with my clutch and how the blues look together. I love this size of handbag for both day and night. It fits just the right amount of essentials. It is also a sneak peek into what is a huge project I have been working on. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen my announcement that I have partnered with AllyOops Boutique to have an exclusive Designing From My Closet collection. I am knee deep in completing the curating process and I cannot wait to show you everything! Until then…
