Fearless Fashion: Holidays = Glitz and Glam FABULOUSNESS2:00 PM
1st outfit (starting from left): I've posted this dress before. It's the Nezetta Cocktail Dress from Igigi. This is subtlety and glitz in a nutshell. The navy color of the dress looks wonderful with the gold metallic details in the fabric. And there goes those 'faithful' gold flats from Payless. I'm wearing a 26/28 here but Igigi tends to run big and I could have easily sized down to a 22/24. The belt fell off after this pic because it was too big.
2nd outfit: This is an outfit I wore to meet some girlfriends for some holidays drinks in NYC. Basic black sweater tunic from Lane Bryant (no longer available) and these fabulous grey metallic leggings from ASOS. If you haven't shopped from ASOS, you really should. They offer free shipping and they run big. I'm wearing a size 24 here. And like I said before, I am a size 28. I am going to re-wear these for New Year's Eve. Just not sure what to pair it with yet. I felt like the sweater underscored the leggings but you live and learn. Bag is from Eloquii, shoes from Simply Be.
3rd outfit: I LOVE this dress and it is from another retailer I shop from all the time... Simply Be! This dress is from the Anna Scholz line and unfortunately, it is sold out. I love the gold detail, the waistband and the neckline. It's comfortable, too and with lots of stretch. You can't tell but I have on black sequin leggings I got from Wet Seal. I'm wearing a 3X. I like mixing up patterns and I loved how the sequins paired well with the gold details of the dress. And of course, I wore my gold flats with this outfit too.
Glam to me means sass with some glamour...I love me some Audrey Hepburn so when I think glam, I try to channel my inner Audrey:
Mannnnnnn, I love me some eShakti! Both dresses are from there. Dresses from the Shak (as us fashionistas affectionately call eShakti) tend to sell out quickly so if you see a dress you like, you must get it immediately. With that said, both of these are sold out. I have been looking for a polka dot dress for the longest time and had not had luck finding one in the right fabric that fits me well. This one is a winner! The scalloped neckline had me at hello. I paired it with the Payless gold flats to give it that sparkly touch. And I am thinking of also wearing a gold lurex sweater as well. The red one is fabulous too. I'm wearing that to my Christmas family gathering. It's simple and the color alone makes it stand out. I'm thinking of pairing that dress with some black sparkly flats.
To me, fearless fashion is all about wearing what you love and feel comfortable in and not worrying about silly rules and or letting what others says dictate your fashion. The holidays are a great time to experiment with your fashion and get out of your comfort zone.
