Hey curvy girls all over the world, 

Sometimes the Facebook comments I receive are too funny and often times rude. A few months ago, I wore a white dress from Boohoo Plus (seen here) and entitled the post “The Little White Dress” Oh boy, why did I do that?! While 90% of the comments were positive there was that 10% that just couldn’t let me live. One of the comments I received and stood out the most was a girl saying, there is nothing little about that white dress.



Now, because I have a sense of humor, I did laugh. It was funny but was it necessary? I didn’t think so. Since I have a sense of humor and can take a joke for the big girl team, I decided to name today’s outfit post,”The Not So Little Black Dress” before someone else beat me to the punch.  LOL!  Being that I have put on more than a few pounds, I have good and bad days. When you gain weight beyond your comfort zone it does take a toll on your mind as well as your body. However, I am one of those people who believe that life still goes on as a big girl and I must dress accordingly.

When I tried on this  black dress from Ashley Stewart, I knew I had to have it. I’m really not much of an all black wearing person but I can appreciate a cute black dress. This black textured tube dress from Ashley Stewart fit like a glove and I felt quite statuesque in it. It ran true to size and offers a little stretch. To hold the girls up, I relied on my trusty strapless bra from Lane Bryant’s Cacique line. I added an oversized wide belt to add a little drama.

As for accessories, I went with a black and white theme. I held a black and white suede clutch from Aldo’s and a pair of minimalist heels also from Aldo’s.

    You look great! Girl do not mind the naysayers I am sure they’re quite upset that their dresses don’t curve like yours do. By the way I am the Assistant Buyer for Dresses and might I say you killed it. 🙂
