Hey curvy girls all over the world,
On day 3 of New York Fashion Week I had a laundry list of things to do. I had a couple of shows to attend and another style event. In addition to that, I was meeting up with a friend for dinner and a movie. So, whenever I have a jammed packed day, I like to wear easy statement making pieces. That’s why I believe in the power of the kimono.
Kimono’s are my secret weapon for an instant statement making look. I try to look for ones with bold prints or bright colors. Actually, we’ve done quite a few fashion articles on kimono’s. Remember my black and white graphic print look HERE and our 10 stylish plus size kimono’s HERE.
The week before fashion week, I took a little shopping trip and found this fabulous bright colored Melissa McCarthy Kimono (get it HERE) Immediately I knew it would be a dope piece to rock during NYFW. I chose to rock it with a ruched black dress from Ashley Grahams Beyond collection with Dressbarn.
The black really allowed the kimono to shine on it’s on. Due to the kimono being oversized, a body con dress made for a better underlying piece.
Melissa McCarthy has some really cute printed pieces. This Melissa McCarthy Kimono ran big so I sized down one full size. I love the fringe detailing at the hem and the color scheme.
I laced up my neon green Aldo sandals to bring out the neon green color in the kimono.
For makeup, I went with a warm fuchsia eye look and matching fuchsia matte liquid lipstick from Milani.
