Whether icy pastels, like my last look, sparkles & baubles, or classic silhouettes are you thing, over the next few weeks, I am here for all if it!
Glamour and class are the name of the game this time of year, and this stunning black & gold, floral brocade midi skirt from JIBRI is the epitome of holiday elegance!
Its chic, structured shape will keep you looking graceful and sophisticated throughout any Christmas or New Year’s celebration (no matter how many champagne cocktails you may have) especially paired with simple cream coloured pieces like this smart, high neck crop top from Girl With Curves (as seen previously in my post “Crimped Hair and Side Belly“) and a fab coat!
I really had a blast while I was away over the weekend. I shopped, ate good food, took in some sights, but most excitingly of all – I attended Big Deal Toronto (an amazing event, which I talked about about in my last post).
For this special occasion, I decided to take my new, luxurious, cream coloured shawl collar coat from Forever 21+ out on the town!
I paired it with the coolest ever, Lot18 denim overalls from Addition Elle, ivory high neck crop top from Girl With Curves, and cute, pale rose flats from Aldo for a casual, chic look that was perfect for a day of shopping and chatting with some of the most stylish plus size fashionistas I know!!!
I’ve got to mention though – this particular crop top look was quite the risk for me! I wore crop tops all summer long and fell in love, but I had never styled one quite like this – exposing so much of my “vulnerability” (AKA fat rolls… Haha!).
A few years ago I probably would have gasped in horror at the idea of going out in public like this; and I admit, I wasn’t 100% comfortable at first; but as I stood outside and posed for pics I felt confident and beautiful as I bared my love handles in all their fleshy glory!
Crimped hair and few pretty accessories, like midi rings, and these fabulous, front/back faux pearl earrings from Forever 21 topped off this very playful look to perfection.
