Outfit Post – Plus Size Stripes

It is a sad state of affairs when a fashion blogger can’t even remember the last time she posted an outfit picture! I’m such a slacker……

I did manage to take not one but TWO outfits pictures this weekend. It’s a Christmas miracle!!

Gywnnie Bee Lands End Dress

Dress – Land’s End (via Gwynnie Bee) | Belt – Eloquii (no longer available) | Shoes – Tory Burch Reva Flats (via Nordstrom) | Owl necklace – Gift from my sweetie (aka The Enabler)

Every woman, both straight and plus sized, has heard that horizontal stripes make you look bigger. I know I heard it many times growing up, and it left me with an irrational fear of stripes. Well friends, I am pleased to report that horizontal stripes are not the devil!  I am so in love with this dress, stripes and all. It’s cotton, which is perfect for hot Texas summers; it’s a great length for flats or wedges; it’s v-neck which is my favorite cut; and it comes with a matching belt that can be swapped out! Speaking of which, I didn’t even notice until after I left the house that my belt and shoes match perfectly! I’m so proud 🙂

Stay tuned later this week for another post featuring horizontal stripes and another supposed fashion no-no!
