My Style: Sweet and Spicy in Black Lace and Gold

Curls Curves and Cocktails- Marie Denee and Cassidy

Over the weekend, me and Cassidy from Natural Selection Blog joined forces to produce Curls, Curves, and Cocktails – a plus size fashion, hair and beauty event in San Francisco!

Hyped, elation, overwhelmed, and feeling good…

Curls Curves and Cocktails- Marie Denee and Cassidy

Thanks to our title sponsor, Igigi, I fashioned a little gold and black lace number. Now, if you have been reading me for a while, I do not like too much frou frou. I like a mix of masculine and feminine, sweet and sassy, or hard and soft. Much like this dress I rocked for my event!

Knowing that Igigi is generously cut, I sashayed my curves into a size 14 Leigh Lace Dress dress and I could not be happier. The traditional a line cut of the dress and the deep v worked magically for me! Well, I felt so! With the girls on deck with the new balconette bra from Lane Bryant, I was feeling like a lady AND sassy at the SAME DAMN TIME.

I even loved the length, which paired with these heels from Sole Society? Mmhmmm. Happy times. Accented with gold jewels, this was my look for the night! I am here with Cassidy who is in the Kaori Infinite Dress!
