STYLE JOURNEY: POLKA DOTS AND PLEATS




Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For the past week I've realized the following, " You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

When  you push yourself and do things that are out of your comfort zone it can be scary and challenging but you must do things that help you to evolve as a person and creatively in your work no matter how challenging or scary it can be. I am looking forward to what my future holds and the road I have to travel to achieve my wildest dreams. This week, I've learned that you have to stand tall and strong for what is right even when it feels like everyone is against you. 


Now, on to this super cute Colette polka dot pleated dress from IGIGI. One of the reasons I dig IGIGI is for their dashing sophisticated styles. While I love me a body con dress or a sexy little mini, I would be lying if I didn't say how much adoration I have for dresses that are classy and modern. I think this is one of the reasons I can have both a 25 year old and a women over 40 appreciate my personal style. I don't discriminate when it comes to fashion and I don't necessarily focus on dressing for age. I buy what I like.

This particular dress caught my eye due to the obvious. Polka dots! I liked the pleated waist because it made for much more of an interesting piece. Whenever I get a dress that stands out because of its details alone, I keep everything else simple and add one complimenting item for flair. My flair piece is the obi belt (also from IGIGI). I liked how it cinched in my waist.and made my hips more prominent. Its funny how I like that it made my hips more prominent because in high school I hated my hips and was often teased for how wide they were. Now, I love them. This is one of those dresses you can wear to the office and swap out heels and accessories for cocktails.
