A Very Stylish Girl

As most of you know I was on Fashion Bomb a couple of days ago and there were a lot of negative comments about my “hammer pants” jumpsuit. Overall the response was good and this is definitely not backlash, but I think I finally understand what some other bloggers issues with flattery are.  About 90% of my garments I pick for style and flattery, but sometimes there are some things that I love, that I find stylish, and that I want to wear.  I think today’s outfit was kind of rebellion towards flattery.  I have wide hips, so to wear a dress that is going to make them look wider is a “no no” in many people’s opinion and really in my own opinion 90% of the time.  But at the end of the day, I bought this dress because I thought it was fashion forward not because it was going to flatter me.  As I advance in my own personal style, I am finding that sometimes style outweighs flattery.  I also don’t want my body type or my size to dictate by personal style.  I am very proud of the fact that with the strain of plus size clothing resources that I am still very much able to dictate how I want to look.

Moving on, I picked up these sunglasses for my honeymoon, but I wasn't really in love with them which goes against my rule of not buying things that I am not in love with.  I have been thinking for sometime to switch out the dark lenses for my clear prescription lenses. Eyemasters at North Park happily switched them out for me and I think these are my favorite new accessory and what is more great is that I can see too. LOL

I was so inspired by the collar area of this dress.  A small detail that I really wanted to bring attention through keeping the attention of the of the eye from the neck up.

I didn't really mean to do it, but before I knew I had channeled my inner Emily or as most of us commonly know her as the "lady decorator friend" in Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Though clearly out shined by Audrey Hepburn, I loved her style and she delivers the infamous line, I am a very stylish girl and she is!
