I am so excited to bring you all the first series of the new year “Shades of Love.” This series will feature creative ways to wear and style the shades of love. For me this series will feature reds, pinks, and everything in between. In this series I will style some sexy hot pink platforms, a super colorful two piece set, and a super dope casual look featuring a dope cropped letterman jacket. Last up is this colorful dress with a splash of red.
Curvies!!!! I can honestly say this outfit is last, but unequivocally my favorite look of all from this series. When I first saw this splash dress online, I quickly fell in love and started mentally styling it before I even clicked ‘add to cart.’ This dress is seriously summing up where my style is currently headed. Color. I love color but often times played it safe with styling, but now I just want to add more even when I think I am done.
Styling this splash dress was a dream. I wanted all of the color. I was so excited to style and quickly realized this splash dress deserved some platform booties! Curvies, I ran and food these green satin platform booties and knew they would be perfect. Now old me me wanted to add a super cute green bag and earrings, but the color me wanted a red handbag, red long earrings, and my lavender corduroy jacket to complete this look.
Style Notes: My splash dress is a size 14 and is true to size. This dress fits more like a shift dress, because the plisse fabric does not hug the body. My green satin platform booties are a size 11 but honestly I could have gotten my true size 10. These booties are heavy, remind me of my platform doc marten. My lavender corduroy jacket is a size large and fits wonderfully.
