It’s not easy to shop when you’re on the curvy side. At least, not if you still want to be stylish and also not spend a fortune. I’m not one to follow fashion trends zealously; my style is very classic and pared down, and once I find a brand that offers styles and sizes that I like, I normally stay loyal for years. Which means that when you open my closet now, you will probably find only two brands: Violeta by Mango, and Marks & Spencer. Boring, I know. Add to that the fact that 90% of my clothes are black!
I actually panicked when I received my newsletter from Mango announcing their 50% off sale! They had pieces that I placed in my shopping cart and vowed to purchase when I had the budget. Now they were half off! And sadly also out of my size. huhuhu. But I was so happy to get one out of 3, the off shoulder one in black, with a skinny studded belt. The fit is amazing and the design is very flattering! I can’t wait to wear it. Methinks my husband needs to take me out on a date soon!
I was thinking of pairing it with pointy flats from Pretty Ballerinas. (I swear by this brand. They are super comfy and I can walk in them for hours.) While I love the black one with gold criss-crossing straps, the pink bow one above is calling my name. And I have the perfect bag to pair it with too!
What do you think? The pink or the black?
