Hi lovelies! I have some excited news for my fashionistas in Chicago! I will be a panelist and attendee at the first-ever DREAM BIG: CurvyGirl Fashion & Beauty Conference, hosted at Morgan’s on Fulton (950 W. Fulton St.) on October 21 from 10 am-6 pm. I’ve been dying for the opportunity to go to Full Figured Fashion Week, The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo, and Curvy Con, but all of those festivities are in Atlanta and New York. Luckily, the CurvyGirl Fashion & Beauty Conference will be here in Chicago, and I can’t wait to attend.
Take part in the festivities and come hang out with me and other Chicago bloggers! Purchase your tickets here: DREAM BIG: CurvyGirl Fashion & Beauty Conference Tickets. You can also use the code “DREAM17” for 20% off your tickets on October 13-17!
And now, onto this outfit, shall we? I found this color-blocked dress in the crowded racks of Marshall’s. The white detail on the bottom is what caught my eye. Could it be a separate piece of fabric? A polyester slip underneath the black dress? These are questions I pondered as I struggled to untangle the hanger from the clothing rack. I was surprised to see that the white detail was the opposite of my first two guesses, but I loved that it made me wonder. I paired the dress with a belt to make it hug my curves a little more. The dress normally falls just below my knees, which could drown out a short figure. However, I have worn the garment with and without the belt, and I love it either way. While I can’t find the exact dress, I will include a couple of similar ones below for you to shop! This Plus Size Chaps Colorblock Shift Dress is a dead ringer, though!
