Little Black Dress #2

Continuing with  January’s  Little Black Dress  series on the blog today.

Today I took a cheap little summer office dress and transformed it into winter wear ….

LBD #2: Belted Merona from Target

This dress is pretty great.  The long silver zipper down the back adds this simple, sexy quality to an otherwise pretty modest dress.  These pictures don’t showcase the large buckle belt that comes with this dress.

My apologies for the poor photos quality in this post – it was pretty dark outside when I remembered to snap pics.  Pardon my winter-bun-headed look ….its the only way to keep my hair from getting crazy static once the parka goes on.

image2-3Here’s a zoomed in look at this fabulous hot pink sweater I picked up on sale at Winners.  It fit nicely under the dress as its quite light-weight and the details up the arms really add a little dazzle to break up this all-black look.

How I Got The Look:  LBD from Target; Hot pink sweater from Winners; Glossy silver pumps from Payless; Sheer hosiery from Dollarama; Necklace & earring set  from LOFT

Crop Top Goes to Work

Pulling off a crop top takes a lot of guts.  Wearing one as a plus size babe takes extra courage, as this is an item of clothing not typically deemed as “acceptable” to be worn by a larger lady, with mainstream beauty standards being what they are.

So how does a plus sized gal – moi –  dare to wear a crop top to the office?

Let me show ya! 🙂

I took this simple black 3/4 sleeved crop top and layered it over top of a sheer white collared shirt, to create a demure Monday morning polished and sophisticated look.plus size crop top

Since the majority of this outfit is quite monochromatic, I decided to add a blingy statement necklace with loud bright pinks and greens, and earrings to match.  (For other monochromatic looks click here, here and here.)

Old Navy‘s Pixie pants were recently on sale again recently – which I immediately alerted everyone to via the FB page – you’re welcome 🙂

I look a little hysterical, I know! Shopping deals on perfect fitting pants do that to me 🙂

I found this great houndstooth pattern among them.  Just love the look of them with these glossy pumps!  IMG_5336

Plus, I finally unveiled the wine moto jacket y’all helped me buy … well, helped with your comments on FB to determine whether or not I should bring this baby home from Reitmans!  Haaza!
