If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you’d know that I am all about transitional pieces, particularly work-to-weekend pieces. I came across this patent skirt in-store and walked right by it. While in the dressing room, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and literally ran out and pulled my size off the rack. Needless to say, it was outside my comfort zone but I love to switch my style up from time to time. I loved the exposed zipper (adjustable btw) on the front and the office appropriate knee-length. The feat was to be able to make it work, at work and for evening activities (date night, girls night out, etc).
I decided to push the envelope a little and layer my traditional button down with an off the shoulder bardot-esque top. Horizontal stripes can be tricky and you will often read that plus size women or even busty women in general, should stay away from it, but I can’t cosign. I say wear what you want, just in an appealing way.
