Finding Style

Friday I went to Reitman's to see if I could find a light colored shirt for my fitness class. It's really hot working out in a black shirt! While I was there I tried on a number of dresses. I seriously love wearing dresses. Over the last 10 months or so I've been putting in effort in terms of trying to find my own style. In fact, prior to October 2013, I hadn't worn lipstick in years. I still don't wear a lot of makeup, just eyeliner, mascara and now lipstick. I've learned what colors look best on me and I'm still learning what I like and what looks good. It's still a little weird for me as I go about finding my own style but I am enjoying creating this part of my identity. 

Anyway, I found a couple of dresses I liked but I wasn't 100% sure so I didn't buy them. Sunday I was going to go back but wanted to check out Pennington's first. They only had halter and floor length dresses which wasn't what I was looking for. These stores tend to really annoy me. There are clothes I'd love to wear, but I can't justify spending that much money on one item. My visit got cut short as I was needed at home. I figured I would just go to Reitman's a little later. Unfortunately, by the time I was able to get out again everything was closed and I ended up at Walmart.

The dress selection was slim but I found one I was willing to try on. I was highly disappointed. Can someone please tell me what is up with this new style where a dress is short in front and long in back? It makes no sense to me and honestly I think they're awful.

Could you not decide if you wanted a short dress or a long one and went with both?  
In the end, I managed to buy a magenta sleeveless scoop neck top, sandals, a new bra, and underwear. I always forget how much better I feel when I get new underclothes. Nothing beats having the girls up where they belong! What we wear under our clothes can have such a positive impact on our self-esteem. It's the little things in life that put a smile on my face.

  1. Elle, this style has been known as the mullet of dresses - that says a lot right!
    The thing is, it is a very tricky style to pull off, and if done right - it CAN be flattering for those who dare to try. This style of dress can not just be thrown on with flip flops or flats. Even the tallest of women will end up looking short and stout. It's going to take some work with a little help from the right shoes and accessories.

    I found a dress with the high/low hem I thought would look amazing on you.
    A friend introduced me to this store a few months ago, and I just love it. They have a fantastic selection of stylish and oh so flattering plus size clothing for a decent price. I know the price of this dress may seem steep, but it does make a world of difference when you spend a tad bit more. You get a better quality that will keep that dress (or anything for that matter) going season after season. And hey, there will always be sales ;)

    With this dress, I found the perfect shoe for you. It is comfortable, yet will give you the extra height you need to pull this style off, along with other dresses, skirts and pants.

    If you're not used to wearing heels, this is the place to start. Once you're used to them, your confidence will skyrocket. They were right when they said - If you give a women the right pair of shoes, she can conquer the world! Talk about taking your self esteem to the next level.

    I wish you the best of luck in finding a style you can call your own. You have such a wonderful personality and you owe it to yourself to project that out to the world!!!
