Just Checking Things Out

I don’t think there’s a woman anywhere who doesn’t want to look and feel good in her clothes. We all love stylish fashion items. I personally try to find pieces I can wear both casually or dressy. In The Style Curve is one of my favourite brands and they have a wide variety of items. What I love about the brand is that a large amount of their standard size range is also available in the Curve collection. They have really helped me to embrace my love of checked items. In fact almost all of my checked pieces come from them! With that being said, you can understand why I had to have this t-shirt dress.

What caught my eye with this one is how easy to style it is. It would work really well on it’s own with some cute heels as a mini dress or as I’ve styled it here as a tunic style top. If you prefer a little more length, skinny jeans or leggings are a great compliment to the item. I always like to size up with dresses like this due to having a large bust, behind and stomach. I got this one in a size 26. You can wear this dress in a sexy way by having your legs out. I personally wanted to wear it more modestly.

It’s no secret that I have a thing for shiny items. I love silver earrings, silver accessories and of course silver shoes! I now have around 5 pairs! Evans Clothing have the most incredible platformed loafers and they are incredibly comfortable. The soles are soft with a padded cushion feel. These are so comfortable to walk in too. A great pair of shoes for the office or as part of the general wardrobe. These black leggings are also from Evans. They have a thick elasticated feel that pulls you in at all the right places. I love how high waisted they are and the little added details like the zippers at the ankle.

    Hello, Ms. Camara. I do very much like your commitment to style. I don’t brag but I have a bit of a subtle style thorn myself (That is to say, even if I have wear something, I personally have to make it look good on myself) I like how you made the outfit pop with something as simple as the silver loafers which by the way remind me of a design line I’ve been working for a while. Love what you’re doing and please keep up the great work!!!

    Iv’e not really worn checked clothing myself. I normally wear plain dark clothes to blend in with the background. It looks great on you but I’m not brave enough to wear anything that is too eye catching.

    This looks so amazing on you! And I love tshirt dresses and have lots of them. During winter I wear them with leggings while in summer just on their own.

    You look absolutely incredible in this outfit, Mayah. I never wear anything like this, but you’ve inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and give something similar a try. Wish me luck :)
