As a full figured woman, I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve been told whether verbally or in print, which cuts work best for my body. Truth be told, I wear what I want because, lets face it, fashion is what you buy, while style is what you do with it. One thing that the books certainly have right is how flattering a wrap dress can look on a fuller body. With summer a mere few weeks away, I’m all about the florals nowadays. This coral floral wrap dress from the Melissa McCarthy Seven7 line is beyond gorgeous. Not only is it flowy, the material has some weight to it so it’s not see-through at all. The 3/4″ sleeves are loose anf for those of us who are self-conscious about your upper arms, you are covered in this dress. I paired my look with patent tangerine colored heels form last summer, a simple tear drop necklace and my Kate Spade bangle bracelet. A dress like this stands out, so accessories aren’t really necessary.
One of my main reasons for starting a blog nearly five years ago was to provide style inspiration to women while simultaneously defying the preconceived notion that a plus size body can’t be fashionable. This is why I’m so happy to see quality choices out there for us more and more. It’s one thing as a celebrity to throw your name onto a fashion line, and something completely different as Melissa McCarthy, to live and breathe the perils of shopping. Her line provides so many options form denim, dresses, casual and dressy tops, skirt and more. So do yourself a favor and check out Seven7 by Melissa McCarthy for beautiful and well made pieces perfect for this summer travels, shin-digs and let’s face it, where we spend the most of our time, the office.
