French Blue Stripe Shirt Dress

It took a while, but I am finally able to share with you the second spring dress I got from Fullbeauty as a result of winning third place in their Own Your Curves Star Style contest. This i my second Ellos brand dress and I am obsessed. The shirt dress design is adorable and chic with the pastel french blue stripes. The fabric is a light and airy cotton, perfect for a spring afternoon tea party in the park or even for graduation. The full skirt is so flowly that all you want to do is twirl, as you can tell I did that a lot during this shoot. Also it HAS POCKETS! All around this is a must have dress for spring.

This dress is also available in a cherry pink  stripe and you should check out how Amber from Style Plus Curves styled it on her blog here.

Style notes: Pay close attention to the sizing when ordering this dress. It took me three exchanges to get it right. The first time was my fault for having clicked on 1X (my usual dress size) not realizing that for Ellos a 1X is a 22/24. The 14/16 that I then exchanged it for was too small in the bust so I recommend that if you have a larger bust like me that you consider sizing up. 20160512_171624 (2) Continue reading

Blushing Fabulously into Spring

So last month I took a chance and submitted an entry to the Full Beauty Own Your Curves Star Style contest. I have never won anything like this before so this was a big thing for me even if I only got third place. Major thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for me. It  truly means a lot. With the winnings I decided to get some spring dresses to feature on the blog, the first of which is this zip front A-line belted dress by Ellos.
