STYLE JOURNEY: RUFFLED DRESSES AND FLOPPY HATS

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The weather this weekend was sunny and breezy. I felt like wearing my ruffled hem Angel Ribbons tunic gifted to me from Simply Be. As you all know next to leopard print, I am obsessed with anything that has ruffles.  I first saw this dress on the back of the Simply Be fall catalog. It's really a tunic but covers the rear enough (for me at least) to wear as a dress. I love the billowy elastic 3/4 sleeves and I like that its a little loose. It fits a little like a baby doll dress.

I've had the dress for about 2 weeks, but I waited to wear it because I was on the hunt for a wide brim floppy hat, which is on trend this fall season. They are everywhere. During Fashions Night Out I participated in JCPenney and People Style Watch's Miss for a Hit. I brought in a dress (that I should have never bought) as my miss and I received a $25 giftcard from JCP to purchase something that would be considered  a hit. I found this tan floppy hat and immediately thought to get it so I could wear it with my Simply Be dress. This dress is versatile. It can be dresses up with lots of jewels and a pair of sexy heels and it can be dressed down with a pair of tall flat boots and black tights. I plan to get tons of wear out of this piece.

Awesome! That color is definitely your color! It's one of my favorites. I love how you paired it with neutral accessories. Especially since that shade of pink is hard to match.

Thank You ladies! The focus of this look was the hat and to show how it can make an outfit all on it's own.
