{STYLE} Flower Power


I first spotted this embellished floral dress at ASOS' heart-winning Curve preview event several months back, where they generously offered each of the guests their favorite dress. This one was mine, from Salon - a higher-priced subdivision of ASOS that uses luxury fabrics and embellishments. Wearing white and light colors has been a continuous challenge for me, but I couldn't say no to this swing dress with bright and shiny baubles sewn along the neckline. Continue... (Psst. Make sure to scroll all the way down to catch a sneak peek at my next QVC "Inspired Style" segment airing tonight at 1AM!)

When this landed in my mailbox, I couldn't wait to unwrap it and wear it nonstop. It's been worn with and without the belt, to pool parties and to cocktail parties and to dinner dates. Hair up with a silk scarf wrapped around my head, hair down... What I thought would be reserved only for "special occasions" ended up being my new favorite piece in my wardrobe. Do you ever get into routines with clothing like that, where you wear the same piece non-stop? I'm in lurve.

Hey! Don't scroll too fast. 
I'm going to be on QVC's Inspired Style with Amy Stran tonight at 1:00 AM EST (er, okay, technically it's Friday morning)! In this episode, Amy Stran came over for a closet raid and grilled me on some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe! It's always such a pleasure to work with the team at QVC, and I'm so excited about this segment!

    Dear Nicolette, I found out about your blog just recently and being a size plus girl myself, I was a bit skeptic at first but today, with all your advice on my mind, I had a amazing shopping for the first time in my life so thank you for that. :) Sorry if my grammar is bad, but I think you'll understand. Hugs and kisses from Serbia. :)

  13. I think you are wearing the wrong size in the dress. I think you could go down a size BC it is not fitting correctly at the waist w the belt. Very pretty though.

  15. Nico you are SUCH an inspiration to me ! I'm a plus sized gal and I always think my outfits can be cuter !! I need a LOT more of your help !HA! keep the videos coming ! Like maybe do a video where you take a regular dress/outfit and put different accessories with it to dress it up or make it more casual? That would be some great information ! I never know what to put with things.

  21. Oooh that would be fun! Video editing isn't my forte but I'd love to try more of that. I did the "Big Girl in a Skinny World" web series for some time.

  22. Thank you! I need to wear belts because my proportions are so weird that nothing would fit otherwise! I like having some appearance of a waist under all that fabric, hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha! Yeah, it's big in my waist - but a size smaller would not fit in my bust. It's a never ending battle of "this or that" in my wardrobe :)

  24. I'm so glad you were able to find some things you love!!! Fashion has the ability to be SO empowering with a few adjustments to perspective.

  33. Lovely dress you are wearing. I am sure that large women these days have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to selecting their dresses. In fact, Shopping for large size womens clothing
    has never been easier as many stores and manufacturers are paying more attention to the need of them. Fashion and clothing manufacturers like Kita ku, including others, are doing a fantastic job in designing and making
    trendy plus size clothing that don't only fit the large size women well but also they have great fashion values. Thank you for this nice blog.
