We all love a great brunch, don’t we? I know that I do! And you know what? When it is with other fashion blogger homies, you know it is only THAT much more exciting- because as excited as I am to see them, I am even more hyped to see what they are wearing. I hadn’t a clue who would be there, but I was hyped. Running late and not properly planning for traffic, panic striken and frazzled, I made it to the event!
Being that I live in forgotten land, getting out to LA always proves to be a task and feat- BUT today, at the request of Rachel from LovelyinLA, I made the morning jaunt into the Hollywood Hills to join her. And better yet, it was the perfect time to rock my Heidi Striped Yatch Monif C dress that she sent to me!
My Style: Brunching in Stripes in my Monif C Dress
Look mom, I made a gif! Hehehe
This dress, I am rocking a size 1x. It fits me like a glove. I was rocking a shaper underneath so that I would not stick to the liner of the dress (the sweat is real in these streets) and the dress would sit properly! I may have been a bit fancy, but hey… I had fun!
And for the horizontal-stripes-on-plus-size-women dissenters:
I have no hips. I love my shape for the most part. As long as my dress fits me and I feel amaze in it, eff the “rules” because in all seriousness, I think this dress plays up the curves and I felt amaze in it! Add to my uber fave strapless bra from City Chic, and I am here for all of this! YESSSS HONEY.
Naturally, I was running late and could not find my perfect pair of shoes for this dress, also I recently purged like 12 bags of clothes and shoes. It was a deep one and sooo needed. I did donate the clothes, so I felt good about life when I started to frantically spin around my closet and trunk to find THE shoe. No luck. SO I opted for my trusted patent peep toes from Just Fab (they are quite old but COMFY!)
I layered up the bracelets; I wanted to have a bit of an arm soiree happening here! And since it was am, I kept it a bit toned down- hehehe.
Because I love the makeup and it was 5000 degrees outside, I played in my Kiss BB cream (I do not think I could tell you when I wore foundation last?), Makeup Forever mascara (this is amazeballs by the way), my Urban Decay green liner and Venom red lippie by Urban Decay as well!
Thank you to Monique from Curves and Chaos for snapping me, cause… this harsh sun, my sweat, and this dress? Without her help, it would not have happened! LOL
