I really loved this outfit because it wasn't necessarily my "standard" go-to ensemble, but it was comfortable and different and had an ounce of bedazzle at the toes. H&M Jersey dresses are a wonderful thing. Though it's rare to find any actual plus-sizes, I find their mediums and larges to stretch quite substantially. The size I am wearing here is actually a medium, but it fits like a glove and provides that body-hugging, curve revealing quality that I adore. Yay fuller figures! I will warn you, though, that zippers on such dresses work just like any other zipper. I found this out back in high school when my dear friend decided to unzip a dress I was wearing thinking there would be fabric underneath (in front of my whole AP English class need I add). There wasn't fabric underneath.
As for this jacket, I got an amazing deal on it at Forever21 Plus earlier this summer. Unfortunately, it's sold out, but you can find something similar in blue here. I felt after putting on the dress and jacket that I needed something extra to lighten up the mood. So I went for these glitterified marble flats by Steve Madden. If you recall, I have a theory that having bedazzled socks (or shoes in this case) will provide some extra brightness and cheer if you're feeling a little murky.
This is my final shoot with Isaiah Johnson, photographer and fashion/lifestyle blogger. He tried so hard to get me to look angry and grungy, but alas, I couldn't be serious. Once again, thanks for taking the time to shoot me in NYC amidst a crazy fashion week frenzy!
