Manic Monday

Six o'clock already, I was just in the middle of a dream, I was kissin' Valentino, By crystal blue Italian stream ~ Manic Monday 

If you hang out with me via Facebook you'd know that I'm the new writer for About.com plus size fashion section.  A recent article I wrote spoke on how to wear your ballerina skirt perfectly.  I wanted to continue the conversation over here as it pertains to including a tutu in your work wardrobe.  I know work wardrobes can get boring with black skirt, black pants, black this and black that. As I continue with my GwynnieBee clothing subscription (get one free month here), I borrowed this tulle skirt that I think is the absolute perfect working girl's ballerina skirt.  It has only two layers of tulle.  You can walk in the office with a little flare, but no one will look at you crazy.  To give this skirt an office appropriate look I paired it with work staples, blazers and a buttons up.  For most of you 9-5 working girls these should be garments that you already have in your closet. I also wanted to touch on using this wine color and transitioning it into spring.  Wine is usually considered a fall color, so I brightened it up with the tops and blazers that I chose to pair it with.  You just add in spring colors into the look to bring it into the warmer season.  

Style Notes:  This skirt is Kiyonna via GwynnieBee. I'm wearing a 2X in it.  I thought the waist was a little big, so you may want to take that into consideration when choosing a size. If you want to know more about how GwynnieBee works check my previous post hereIf you want to know how I styled my hair I actually watched a youtube video. You can see it here.  Also, you may notice that some of the items I am wearing are sold out.  I do the one piece three ways to help people shop their own closets when they introduce a new piece.   I make sure the focus piece is currently available, but then I add in pieces from my own closet.  So some of the items shown are older and no longer available.  Finally, I'm wearing shoe clips on my black wedges.  It's such a cool concept for people like me who don't buy a lot of shoes. I don't buy a lot of shoes because I want to be comfortable and it's hard to find a lot of shoes that are both cute and comfy. I linked the info at the bottom.
