When it come to fashion on the red carpets executed in plus size former Glee Star and Dancing with the Stars winner, Amber Riley, is always a favorite of mine. I've enjoyed seeing her personal style grow as she has grown into a woman. When I saw this photo via Stylish Curves "Get the Look" segment, I knew I had to have it. It's always awesome when celebs wear something that accessible to us regular folk. I am a follower of hers on Instagram and I love how she hashtags #ballinonabudget. She always does an awesome mix of high and low pieces. High/low mixing is something that I truly believe in when building a wardrobe. Anyways, I'm loving Amber in this dress and I may be slightly jealous of how she is filling out the top. O_o
Style Note: This dress is great if you are trying to create a curvier shape. I think Amber also proves that it looks better on a bustier body type as well. This dress sold out soon after Amber wore it, but here are a few similar options here, here, and here.
Make-Up Note: I really want to start experimenting with make-up more. I usually have my one look, switch up my lipsticks and that's all I got. LOL! My mom gave me a whole bunch of Revlon products from Walgreens (where she works). I am just now staring to dive in, but I'm having fun so far. I found out with this look that by just following the directions on the back of the eyeshadow container actually works. Who knew?!?
