Blue Ribbon

Day 4 of 5 of Nutcracker madness: rather than Christmas red or green, I went with Hanukkah blue!

Melrose Mesh Top - c/o Kiyonna / Pencil skirt - Charter Club (Macy's)

I saw a few other bloggers tuck in this top (the Melrose Mesh Top from Kiyonna), which would seem to negate the point of all that strategic ruching, but I wanted to try it anyway - maybe with a grey pencil and some funky pearl statement jewelry. But then I remembered how I rocked the polka dot version of the top with the coral version of the skirt and figured I should just apply the same formula here. When it ain't broke...

Necklace - LOFT / Ring - Ruche / Earrings - The Limited / Nails - Essie "Midnight Camii (via Ulta) 
Handbag - Furla

I just love pairing statement shoes with outfits, though. A seemingly simple outfit of solids makes a perfect backdrop for some stand-out, notice-me heels. Snake print with coral trim? Just the ticket.

Shoes - Guess


  1. Very cute outfit, and that color blue looks great on you. I too enjoy wearing blue during the Christmas season instead of always going with the typical red and green colors. In my mind, blue and white are perfect for the holiday season as they represent the winter time (as well as Hanukkah).

  2. Well, I have spent the last two days pouring over your ENTIRE blog and I absolutely love it. One of the best, not just plus sized (though I am too) fashion blogs, but one of the best fashion blogs I have run across. You have incredible style, and you really know how to dress your body well. I've seen so many great layering and color combinations here. I have pinned about half your blog to my "Styles I Love" pinterest board. I've gotten so many ideas to create outfits with items I already own and ideas with what to buy next. BTW, I'm also a HUGE ponte knit fan, and have been for a long time - it's definitely a friendly material to the plus sized girl. Most of all, I love that your styles are do-able and look completely effortless and comfortable. Just love, love, love everything about your outfits. Great inspiration for someone who is trying to purge their closet and update their look.
