My first Outfit of The Day.
I've been wanting to do a few fashion posts for quite a while but to be truthful I never had the guts to do it. I read so many blogs and I see all these stylish fashionista's who are no bigger than my little pinky and it would get me discouraged. I'm trying not to use body image as an issue for not living my life but as a bigger woman it's very frustrating to know that companies don't make the same clothes I see in fashion mags, for people my size, to which I say Shame on them! I LOVE fashion too!
Anyway, my point was not to be upset or get into another fit of unfairness by the department stores but to show you how I dressed up a pair of everyday jeans. By dressed up I mean rather than have a sweater and jeans look, I threw on a white handmade crochet top over a tank top and paired it with some cute Payless Bow flats that add a touch of flirtiness. To finish my look I cinched the tops together with a Torrid black belt just below my breastbone. Because of my pear body shape, adding a belt below the breastbone will elongate my figure and draw attention away from my hips and thighs.
Makeup I kept minimal, but it can always be dressed up later throughout the night.
Hope you enjoyed!
