This weekend I had a shoot for Plus Size Pop in Girls. The dress I chose to wear for the shoot was an INC Floral shift dress I got from Macy’s. This dress I have worn before, but I’m all for recycling an outfit and changing it just enough to make it look like a brand new outfit. Besides I am a mommy on a budget and as much as I would like to go out and splurge on brand new clothes every week, I have to make the best with what I have. Growing up I didn’t have a lot and learned very quickly to stretch my clothes, either by accessorizing or altering my clothing. As u can see in the above picture, the first time I wore this dress I kept it very simple with minimal jewelry and a pair of nude strappy heels I got from Forever 21 (side note: Although it is rare Forever 21 does occasionally carry extended shoe sizes. I wear a size 10-11 wide depending on the shoe). In the below picture I decided to style the dress up a bit more and play into the cold weather by adding my faux fur vest by Ashley Stewart (love this store), a pair of black tights( target), black heels from Call It Spring(Aldo sister company), and a Gold choker again from Forever 21. By doing this I not only dressed the outfit up but also gave the illusion of a whole new outfit. So lesson for this blog post. Never say you can’t find anything to wear. There are always options in your closet, you just have to get creative. Don’t be afraid to shop your own closet. Happy Shopping Dames!!
