We are back today with another edition of the #30PlusStyle! Today’s challenge was one of Pantone’s leading colors for Fall 2014 Sangria! It’s such a bold color that I knew I wanted something flirty, sexy and feminine for this challenge. I was amazed at how much I found in the Sangria color family available in plus-size clothing from leather skirts, dresses, pants, and outerwear.
I fell in love with the dress on Boohoo’s site and was ecstatic when I saw it came in a shade of Sangria. I immediately fell in love with the bold color and ruffled top. But alas when I received the dress it did not fall in love with me, le sigh. It was way too tight around my belly and I wasn’t comfortable wearing it. I had no idea what I was going to do. I contemplated sending it back but I loved the way the top fit so much I that I came up idea to tuck into a skirt and make it a top. Voilà, a look was born. One of the things I realized that growing up plus size made me and a lot of you resourceful with our wardrobe. I spent years working with my seamstress, changing details and retooling items to create the looks I wanted. I don’t want to lose this spirit just because I have more shopping resources available to me. Have you ever not wanted to give up on an item and end up using it for something else?
