I Wish That I Could Say That I Am Proud To Be Curvy…But I Am Not

Based on my measurements, I am actually more square. So, I must say that I am proud to be square. Even though the heavens dipped me in chocolate, it forgot the bodacious round bottom and cocoa cola bottle waist.  Whenever I shop for clothing, I find that most clothes are made for women with the curvier body type often seen on plus sized models. I have found that I have to trick my clothing into thinking they were made just for me.

Belts to cinch the waist and a-line dresses to build up my hips are little tid-bits that I have learned to give the illusion of curves. I love my body in all of its squareness. But there are times when curves would be nice. What are some tricks that you have learned to showcase your beautiful body…curvy or not?


Oh So, Oh So Baroque

Gianni Versace made the baroque trend super popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Me being a product of the 70’s and going through what I call my early prime in the 90’s, I also associate the baroque print with the Notorious B.I.G. He was “notorious” for rocking Versace and rhyming about it in his songs.

Well, as all things old become new again, baroque is back. I am in love with it! It is gaudy and classic all in one. It’s similar to animal print. It begs for only one piece to be worn at a time. I purchased a skirt from ASOS, only for it to be too large and it’s now sold out. So sad! Luckily, they have a few other things worth taking a look at.

Below are a few of my favorite picks:
