It’s getting late in the day and I’ve been running further and further behind it seems, so I’m just gonna get to the point and keep it short and sweet just like an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top!
Did I mention my red lipstick from Maybelline is called Very Cherry? How about that!
For today’s post I wanted to show you all an outfit that I am loving right now as the weather is getting hot hot hot and summer is on the horizon! I’m not sure if its the big circular earrings, the button up tank tied at the waist, or the whole outfit in general but this look had me feeling a little bit nostalgic for the 90′s which is never a bad thing in my book. In fact anytime 90′s styles make a come back I feel completely at home hence the title of this post.
I received a package in the mail a week or so ago from my lovely friends at Figuresque full of some really cute pieces that I have been super excited to incorporate into my wardrobe and share with you all. This dress was the first item that stuck out to me, and how could it not? I am a bit animal print obsessed after all! I received the Animal Print High-Low Dress in a size 3X and it fits great, is a nice poly blend and is really comfortable and easy to wear with elastic at the top of the bust and at the waist. The high-low cut of the skirt is also interesting and a bit different then most mullet dresses I have seen as of late since this one goes up on the side instead of up in the front, which I find a lot more flattering. The extra flare to the skirt as it elongates and a similar detail on the bust makes this dress more stylish and gives it that extra va-va-va-voom for a saucy look. I feel like the cut of this dress enhances my curves and shows off my shape in a way that I absolutely love. Overall this dress is a great piece that I am happy to have in my wardrobe and will probably wear quite a bit this summer. For only $37.95 I would totally recommend this dress to all of my curvy chicks who want to feel a little wild, sexy and breezy as things heat up!
I originally had planned on adding a hat to this look but it just wasn’t working with my hair. As you can probably tell I am at a point where I need a haircut and thank goodness I have one booked for next week. Taking away the hat made me change things up a bit but I am pretty happy with the look I ended up with. I don’t have a lot of clothing with gold or brass details as I typically lean more towards silver so I was really happy that I had another look that I could wear my gold studded collar button up that I reviewed a few weeks ago from WetSeal. This shirt tied up nicely around my waist which helped showcase my smallest curve and the sheer fabric made me able to cover up a little bit without covering the print completely. I finished the look with my favorite Torrid Wedges from seasons ago, and some black and gold circular earrings my Mom gave me in my stocking at Christmas. Overall I was feeling pretty hot in this look no matter what the decade!
What are you wearing today?
