WARM GRAY (V)

Contrary to what many people think, plus sized women sometimes look better in fitted styles than in looser ones. And knitted dresses are easy to wear and to style but you have to choose well the one that fits your body shape. To balance my pear shape, I looked for a fitted skirt, but it shouldn’t be too tight so when…

FLORAL GREYISH BLUE BODYCON (IV)

For today a cute short-sleeved bodycon dress, something simple that a woman should have in her closet.  This type of dress indulges and flatters all types of bodies.  The greyish blue base of this dress contrasts with the off – white and lilac flower pattern. The floral pattern makes this dress elegant and hugs curves…

Grey creates unlimited posibilities as the multiple shades and tints…

LADY MAGENTA

Summer is all about rich colors. Shades in purple, violet, pink and rose complement my skin tone so I tend to collect lots of pieces in them. Today the weather is a bit cooler so I decided to wear my magenta dress.  It is an Adolfo Domiguez´s design and I got it two seasons ago for a…
