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?
The pink pair of flats is so dainty! It will definitely pop out when you wear black. 🙂
Paaaatttt! I’m itching to have a blog makeover again. I wish to change my logo and use a modified color palette and one of your themes. Haha!
Hi Ceemee! Right? I’m so in love with those flats!
