My Christmas Look: Put a Bird on It

As far as my Christmas outfit this year, I opted for the gray winter sky look with a partridge themed sweater in hopes of standing out amidst a sea of red that others would undoubtedly wear this holiday.

I apologize for the lack of links to purchase the items but most are discontinued or it was a gift, and I’m also sorry for my dirty mirror and wrinkled dress and dark photo. (I kinda phoned in this post)  But I had to share my amazing discounted find on the unfortunately discontinued DNKY Jeans plus size dress that was originally $108!! Hold the phone, that’s an insane price for that type of dress. Thank you sale rack for my $9.98 deal! If you are a bargain hunter like I am, it can be difficult to find larger cute clothing on sale, so I had to share.

Aside from the discontinued DNKY Jeans Dot Dobby Dress w/ Lace Back in size 14, I’m wearing a sweater with a bird on it from Target that is at least 5 years old and has a hole in the armpit because I’ve worn it so much.  I don’t believe it’s available anymore.

The black leggings are from Lane Bryant.  The ones I’m wearing have buttons on the bottom, but I also own a pair with lace on the bottom that are equally as cute and are on sale for $14.47 at LB right now!

The fringed ankle boots were a sale item from Lane Bryant (NLA).

The hair piece I’m wearing is from last years Lane Bryant collection but I cannot find it online anymore.  It is a headband I hid beneath my curls and it did not pinch my giant cranium with its tightness.

The understated elegant necklace was a gift from my loving sister the night before her wedding day.  All I know is that it is beautful and purchased from White House Black Market. I really suck a describing fashion items.

Here is proof that my adorable grey dress was under $10!

I threw this look together last minute because this week has been crazy.  But if I’ve learned anything, when in doubt, just but a bird on it and you will feel cute.

Dainty Delight Headband in Black –  $16.99

Spanx Tight-End Tights$28.00

What my cat is wearing:

Classy Curves

Living in a large and in charge body, I make it a point to dress well for my shape.  I think every person should feel empowered to dress as they wish and feel beautiful no matter your size, race, sex, etc.  I’d like to start posting fashion based entries to include plus size fashion store links, blogs, and ideas for inspiration.  Please see my Curvy Fashion page for further fashion resources.

I’ve always loved a nice printed high waist skirt, belt (I prefer thick), and solid button downed blouse as an adorable outfit for curves.  I’ve included an older photo of myself below to show how this look falls on a different shape, and to share that I used to sport this look years ago (I am a pioneer in fashion! haha).
