STYLE JOURNEY: THE CLASSIC WRAP DRESS

IMG_9773

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

While plus size fashion has come a long way from basic wrap dresses, I still think a wrap dress is one of the most rewarding pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Diane Von Furstenberg has made millions from it and it is still her best selling item.  It is definitely a go to piece for me, especially when I feel like I have nothing to wear or when I feel bloated like I am 6 months preggers.

When it comes to body confidence,  I am always concerned with how big my gut looks in an outfit. As I mentioned before, I have put on a few pounds, well, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than a few, so, sometimes I feel like a body con and other times I feel like a wrap dress.

Personally, I love a wrap dress with a deep v neck and side ruching. I found this aqua multi colored dress from Calvin Klein Plus. I was drawn to the color and its the main reason I bought it. It just seemed so spring like. It ran big so I had to size down.

To compliment the aqua, I went with natural makeup and bold lips with MAC’s Flat Out Fabulous. I also,accented the aqua blue with a pair of blue drop earrings from Forever21.

I rocked black strappy sandals and a black velvet heart shaped clutch.

I wore a gold bracelet and Michael Kors watch to pump the look up a little more.

    You look fabulous in this dress Alissa, and I love it how you say you’ve gained some pounds. Makes me feel better about my own gains and to see that we all struggle at times. I was on the fence about this dress but now seeing it on you I’m thinking its a must have!

      Thanks @Stacey! Yeah, some days are a struggle but thank God for the wrap dress. LOL! The dress runs big, so you may want to size down for a closer non baggy fit.
