When the plus size clothing brand Curvissa approached me to try something from their new summer collection I decided to try something out of my comfort zone.
My first love with clothes is always 50's/60's inspired shapes and colours but I'm keen that I never get too stuck in a rut and something about this ethnic print dress really appealed to me.
I love the print which makes me feel like I should be in Sly and the family stones backing band and the slash neck and batwing sleeves which also feel quite 1970's.
|Getting my 70's groove on|
|Kaftaning my way out of a style rut|
Its elasticated under the boobs and in a lovely soft jersey which gives it a great shape and I've pulled it in further with a belt because its one thing wearing something in a fabric that is reminiscent of a 70's kaftan's and quite another to wear a shape that resembles one.
|A simple black belt nips in my waist|
|In the spirit of the dress Ive left my hair down-just being free maaan|
In the spirit of being slightly freer I've left my hair down with a small white flower pinning it up at the side. I've matched the orange shades in the fabric with a lovely sleek lipstick in shade vixen
|Purple ballet pumps work surprisingly well with the orange and black print|
|Lipstick shade "vixen" by Sleek|
|This dress is so comfortable|
|Loving my first ever item from Curvissa|
Its been my first foray into the world of Curvissa and I'm very impressed by the design and quality.
Are you in a style rut? ready to try something new? Will it be this seasons ethnic prints?
