A Decade Of Curves Giveaway

I remember the first time I ordered a piece from Monif C. It was a dress, in the most dazzling multicolour print which seemed to contain every shade known to man, with one sheer black sleeve, and a whole lot of attitude! I had never worn anything that hugged my curves and made me love my hips so much in my entire life. 

That was about two years ago now, but Monif C. has been killing the plus size fashion game for much longer than that! 

10 years to be specific, and to celebrate, the brand has teamed up with ten fabulous blogger babes, myself included, to showcase their “A Decade Of Curves” collection!

 I was asked to choose my fave Monif C. piece from the new collection, and I instantly fell in love with the “Paloma” fleece jumpsuit!!! 

  
It’s the stuff fashionistas’ dreams are made of — the contrast between the fleece (FLEECE!!!) fabric and the super structured cut, is so edgy and perfect! 

   

    
  

  
 
While it can definitely be dressed down and worn as a casual outfit, I really wanted to play on the contrast that this jumpsuit already contains within itself and pair this sporty fabric with classic, super elegant, almost Gatsby-esque accessories. 

  
This stunning collar necklace and embellished clutch from Aldo, and my custom shoes that I designed myself from Shoes Of Prey were the perfect pieces to adorn this velvety grey masterpiece and really make a statement. 

   
   
  
And when it comes to Monif C., making statements has been the standard for the past decade, and I’m wishing them another fabulous decade of curves to come!

Grey Area

It’s funny, because back in high school, I can remember hating the color grey. I remember saying that humans shouldn’t wear grey because it wasn’t a naturally occurring color on the human body – even grey hair isn’t actually grey, but an illusion caused by the growth of white hair mixed with the original color. So in my mind, being the all-knowing, hard-headed teenager that I was, it all made perfect sense!

But one day… I can’t remember when, or even how, I fell in love with grey. I fell in love with it’s softness, it’s smoothness and with the way it made me feel comforted; and I have been loving it ever since.

This gorgeous, oversized t-shirt dress from boohoo.com is probably one of my favorite items in my closet right now. After all, I’ve shown it to you in prior posts, in cream and in black too. It’s incredibly versatile, comfortable and luxurious feeling, so imagine my elation when it was restocked in my size in grey!!! Woop woop!!!

I’ve paired this delightfully simple dress with my favorite cognac colored belt from Additon Elle, mustard yellow and cognac wedges from Walmart, this delicate cross necklace from Forever 21, and a fun, chunky, animal print bracelet for an effortlessly chic look that is totally true to the relaxed vibe it exudes.
