>ANIMAL PRINTS AND VELVET

>

This summer I found this super cute animal print dress at H&M. I loved the silhouette of the dress because it was fitted at the top and full at the bottom. I was intrigued by the ruffle neck color and loose pleating on the side of the hips that created a slight balloon effect. I thought it would be a great dress to transition into the Fall.
 I used to be afraid of prints, but, I realized prints are your friend. I love wearing prints with a solid color which is why I decided to wear the dress with my velvet ruffled jacket that I got from Express way back in 2000. This is when Express was a true curvy girl friendly store. I used to wear this jacket all the time. It used to zip all the way up, but, now I’m lucky if I can zip it past my stomach , which is why I wear it open. I liked this look because it made me feel confident and chic.
