I'm wearing one of my favorite outfits today. It's incredibly simple and thanks to the pattern I have to put in zero effort. That's something I'm going to remember as I start picking up new spring pieces - pattern equals pizzaz without the effort.
The Outfit:Printed faux wrap dress- Alfani, from Macy's
Leggings- Gap Body
Ballet flats - Designershoes.com
Flower petal earrings - Patina
Aquarius necklace- not sure
And look! A special bonus outfit. This is what I wore yesterday to appear as a guest of KFAI radio's programming to celebrate International Women's Day. Yes, I realize that one does not technically "appear" on radio. But even at 5:45AM, on the radio, I am going to represent the best version of me.
I had an interesting chat with the show's host, local comedian Jodie Maruska, and owner of Bombshell Boutique Denise Alden.
We talked about ways for plus size women to embrace their identity and celebrate it with fasion; as well as a few hot button topics like, "What do you think of the term plus size?" I, personally, am not bothered by the term. I don't care what other people label me. What do you think? Do you feel empowered to participate in fashion and express yourselves with clothes? Or is that something you struggle with?
Thanks to Jodie for inviting me - it was a great way to start of my Tuesday morning!
