Wanted to share with you guys perhaps one of my favorite looks eva! I pulled together this super girly pink and frilly look for day 2 of Curvycon/NYFW. It did require a little ingenuity but it came together and got so much love!
When I found this tulle dress in the straight size section on ASOS.com I knew that I had to have it (especially being less than $40). At that time I didn’t know exactly how I would wear it but I got it along with a bunch of other things lol.
First of all, let me say that I got the 14 with fit me perfectly. The top was actually a little big in the chest area but the bottom fit perfectly. It was not restricting at all. I knew that by ordering a 14 it would be a risk but that’s what free returns are for.
Once it arrived and I tried it on I was like, it needs a jacket. I tried on my faithful black moto and it was cute but then I thought, what would Blair @blaireadiebee do? I instantly thought of the pink blazers I have, one being this pink double breast one from Lane Bryant. When I tried it on the color was a perfect match but the proportions were off. It needed to be cropped. I jumped on the phone and started calling seamstresses and a church member came to my rescue 3 days before NYFW. She hemmed the jacket and the rest is history.
All that to say you can work and re-work pieces in your closet!! Take a second look at some of your things and think about how a little tweak can make a whole new look.
P.S. My altered jacket was spotted by the CEO and lead designer of Lane Bryant at Curvycon. They were like, why didn’t we think of that, lol!
Wore look for my panel discussion at CurvyconBefore alteration. Looks totally different, huh?
