Celebrity Style Capture: Amber Riley

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?!?
