In Living Color

Nordstrom 1


Have you ever heard the expression “Can’t see the forest for the trees.”  Sometimes we’re who too involved in the details of a problem to look at the situation as a whole.  It doesn’t matter what our problem is.  Whether it’s love, money or health.  For curvy women it’s comes when we think of wearing color.

Spring is fast approaching and it’s time to ditch those black dresses and add some color.  I know some plus women shy away from color for fear they’ll draw more attention to our size.  Curvy girls have been trained that black is slimming.  I’m here to say that a well made dress can be slimming even in color.

I found this orange (red aurora) sheath dress while online shopping.  It’s from plus size label Arthur S. Levine found exclusively at Nordstrom.  I’m glad I got it.  The website’s picture doesn’t do this beauty dress justice.  I really wanted to add more bright colors to my closet in an effort to help with my self diagnosed seasonal affective disorder.  In speaking with a friend she said that she doesn’t wear colored dresses because she doesn’t want to be the center of attention.  I told her being plus size often times we’re the biggest person let alone women in the room.  We are already the center of attention.  A little color won’t make a huge difference.

This Arthur S. Levine dress comes in many colors.  Three of them bright and ready to usher you into Spring.  The other 2 are darker colors and are just lovely.  I under not everyone is ready to walk into a room and say “I’m here” without opening their mouth, lol.  Whatever color you choose to wear just do what you wanna do in living color
