HOW I WORE A DRESS AS A TOP
Being a black female blogger from Chicago my influence reaches many demographic. The blog thefatgirloffashion has been bubbling under the surface for years. As a Generation X kids I’m a products of shifting social norms. With my mom having to work to support 3 children I was left to make many choices for myself and my younger siblings. You can say they were the first group to fall under my influence, lol. I can remember watching MTV and dancing in the mirror. Or sitting in front of my television on Thursday nights and wishing I could be a Cosby kid. They call people in my age range “Xers” to refer to an unknown variable or our desire not to be defined. However, At some point we’ll all have to check a box or two. That still doesn’t mean we have to be pigeonholed just because of some label. And it’s the same with clothes.
Like people clothes don’t have to pigeonholed on a specific label. A dress is just a top waiting to happen. I took a gray bodycon dress and tucked it into a pair of my favorite jeans to turn this summer staple into a form fitting top. This is great to maximize your clothes. I also took this swimsuit cover up and paired with this causal look as a duster. This adds a little extra pop of color to this monochromatic look with the flowers. The duster also adds a flowy element to fitted look of the top and jeans. Thinking outside of the box a little allows me away to bring some of my favorite summer pieces to colder months seamlessly.
I hope this little tips can help anyone who has favorite pieces that they don’t want to wait and wear. Plus this can save us a few coins so we can go to fun events plus size events like theCurvycon.
