Who's that girl?
Anyone else start singing Eve when they read the title? Maybe I'm alone haha.
Hi Guys! Thanks for checking out my blog. I thought my first post should be a little introduction. My name is Jen, and I am the creator of Fashion + Curves. I've wanted to start a plus size blog for quite some time now, and I thought the new year was the perfect time to start. I live in NYC and work in the apparel industry. Fashion has always been a huge part of my life. I've always loved clothes, and being a curvier girl finding on trend pieces wasn't always easy. Let's just say the apparel industry has come a long way, but they still have a long way to go. Fashion + Curves is a forum for me to share my personal style with you. I want this to be the place that gives you inspiration to try new looks or pair different options together from your own wardrobe. Let's face it, you and I don't have an endless closet...or budget. This blog is meant to use pieces you already own and style them in a new and interesting way. Having classic pieces as a base is always key. You will see that my favorite things to buy are accessories. Accessories can take a basic outfit and turn it into something really special.
The statement piece of this outfit is this fabulous necklace. Let's just say Baublebar and I kind of have a love affair because I can't stay away from their jewelry. I literally own this necklace in 4 different colors which you will definitely be seeing in future posts.
I've paired the necklace with a vibrant royal blue chiffon top from Lane Bryant, some ripped jeans and some low key tan flats. I really wanted the necklace to be the showcase of this outfit.
Some brightly colored bracelets add another color pop element.
Here is a huge tip ladies. Your makeup can be just as big of a part of your outfit as your clothes. Adding a pop of color on the lips is a really affordable way to change the look of something you've already worn before. Below I added Heroin by Mac and it gives the outfit a very different vibe.
