Hey curvy girls all over the world,
After sharing with you Tadashi Shoji’s new online plus size boutique a few weeks ago, the Tadashi Shoji team asked me to be part of a style challenge they were working on. Me and quite a few other blogger’s were sent a super chic cocktail dress in black to put our own personal spin on it. The dress they picked for us was the “Cutout Jersey Boatneck Cocktail dress in black” I was super excited about it because it actually was one of my favorite dresses from the fall 2012 collection.
The cutout boatneck dress is what I call a real LBD. The detailing is nothing short of amazing. When you get a dress that has an impeccable cut and standout details you don’t need anything to dress it up but some accessories and dope shoes. So, for my first look, that’s what I did. The dress is already sharp and eye catching on its own so I simply added my yellow ankle strap suede heels, a gold cuff, a yellow studded bracelet, and a pair of gold chandelier earrings to amp up my look.
For those of you that have been following me for awhile know that I like clothes that can work double duty. So, for my second look, I chose to create an ensemble that I could pass off as an office look.
Since the dress was made of jersey material, I felt a bright colored blazer is exactly what I needed to make this cocktail number work appropriate. To pull the look together, I added a skinny patent leather belt, crystal drop earrings, and a pair of leopard print pumps.
Those are my two looks. The cutout mesh details is what really gives this dress a kick. I love it!
