Shopping for the perfect dress can sometimes be stressful because, if you’re like most women, you worry about your arms being exposed or the muffin top being on display. I've recently put on a few pounds, and for this reason I am now more body conscious than ever. I guess I should go ahead and consider myself plus size as I now wear a size 10-12. When I shop for the perfect dress, I first consider the occasion, then the structure of the dress, and color. Did I mention how much I hate wearing black? I know most consider black to be "the" slimming color (I don't disagree on this), but vibrant colors are so much more fun and tend to make you stand out more. Take a look at a few cute summer dresses I found at Goodwill.
I love that this is not your typical all black dress. It has a touch of white, and I love the red stripe of color on the bottom. Did I mention the shoes are also thrifted?
This lacy sundress was an instant fave because yellow is one of my favorite colors! Shoes, you guessed it are also thrifted. :)
If you do nothing else, take some time to discover which colors look best on your skin tone. Hmmm, maybe this would be a great future post?! Be sure and comment if you want to hear more on this.
A blue jean dress is what most would consider a wardrobe staple because you can dress it up or down. I chose a pair of red heels for a cute semi-dressy day look, but you could easily go casual with a pair of converse or sandals.
