Hour Glass

I am a lover of maxi skirts and when I saw this gorgeous maxi at Valley Thrift Shop, I snatched it up along with another long maxi skirt and a gorgeous dress. The best thing about it is the hour glass figure it gives me!

Top: Forever 21 cami
Skirt: Thrifted at Valley Thrift Shop..see my other purchases a Green Maxi and Vintage Dress!!!!
Cardigan: Thrifted at No Relation Vintage NYC
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Dany Platform
Feather Earrings: Bought in Playa Del Carmen Mexico see more awesome earrings HERE!!!!!
I’ve noticed over the past few months I’ve gotten a little curvier..especially below the waist..lol. I aint complaining…thanks…I’m finally receiving my grown woman weight and I embrace it! Some people complain about how they look or want to change things. I don’t think I’d ever get anything “done” although I certainly don’t have any kinda problem with people who choose to. I love my gap toothed smile, the mole on my ankle and everything else. I wish I had less acne but thats about it. I’m happy with what God has given me…and the recent extra stuff too! Love Yourself!
Also I’m extra excited for all the things going on with the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group. Some of us meetup last night and went to a great event at TOPSHOP Soho. Look out for a post soon.

    I’m all for embracing your womanly curves. It makes wearing great clothes all the more special when you accentuate your good points.
