Back in Black

Happy Thursday all!

I want apologize for my lack of blogging this week. I got KOed by the flu earlier this week and just returned to work today.  I feel 100% better now and so  happy to be able t0 breathe out of both nostrils!

The dress I’m wearing today is from the Sean Anthony Designs Fall Collection.  I bought  this  dress during their trunk show at BellaNOR Boutique last Saturday evening.  BellaNOR is a wonderful plus size boutique here in Philadelphia  featuring many labels such as Monif C, Igigi and Kioynna.  I’ve driven past the boutique a few times and wanted to stop in but never  had the chance so the trunk show was the perfect opportunity to check it out.

I was immediately drawn to the dress because  I don’t own a LBD! (bad blogger, bad! LOL).  Another thing that drew me  in was the asymmetrical neckline.  Usually plus size dresses have either a vee or scoop neck so this was different.  The dress accentuates your curves but it isn’t tight or constricting.  The  comfortable  knit material has great stretch to it which didn’t ride up when I walked.   The length is appropriate for work and looks great with heels.  It’s a dress that can easily go from day to night with a switch of  shoes and accessories.

I paired my dress with gold accessories and my leopard print kitten heels (which are so comfy I want to wear them everyday!) to finish my outfit.  I would definitely  recommend you check out Sean Anthony Designs. The collection offers quality clothing  at affordable prices.  We need to support designers who want to provide stylish, good quality clothing to curvy women .   Also if you are in the Philadelphia area, please visit BellaNOR Boutique.  The boutique provides  a much needed space where the  plus size consumer  can feel wonderful about herself and her body.

Have a wonderful evening!

        Not next to my face – makes me look like death warmed over! I can wear black pants, or a black skirt, but not a black blouse or a black dress. Can’t wear pure white either – same effect. I look better in pastels and electric colors.

        Okay…well pastels & electric colors you cant beat!

    You look great! You are correct – that neck line is wonderful. I love black – when I was younger (I’m 47) I had every color in the rainbow in my closet but now when I open it – black – and oddly enough – hardly any pattern – just solid – and it doesn’t bother me at all! :). Again – you look great and I will check out the designer. Take care of yourself – the flu is no fun!
