A-Line Brocade

I think the reason why I still persist at taking outfit posts no matter how few & random they are is simply because I don’t always feel pretty. So when I do feel pretty it is essential to capture that moment before it fades. Take the above set of photos that were taken a couple weeks ago by Charles an hour before we were to head to his cousin’s wedding in Virginia Beach. I was feeling classy in a brocade dress from Love 21, the “real” women’s clothing section within Forever 21. I shop for most of my pants in this section now because they actually fit my pear shaped body quite nicely at a decent price. No extra bounce into jeans required. Oh the trials of shopping for thunder thighs…

Dress: Love 21 | Peep Toe Flats: Express
Funny thing is I’m actually wearing this dress backwards. The front of the dress was a scoopneck cut but it made me look super frumpy. So I flipped the dress around because the V cut of the back made me look slimmer. And especially when dealing with the bitty titties, I gotta enhance what little I have as much as I can haha.  Just goes to show you that the tag in the back doesn’t necessarily determine how you wear the dress … 
Please excuse the pissy face… I learned the hard way that taking pics at 3:30pm when the sun is at its prime affects my usual Blue Steel look.
