What’s up everyone —
Today, thanks to Dia&Co., I decided to step out of my boundaries and try an outfit that I normally wouldn’t wear (Hence, my title, Try-day). I, myself, am a girl with curves all over and have never felt comfortable in tight fitting bodycon dresses, so when I was invited to be apart of this project, I knew what look I wanted to pursue.
When I tried on this dress for the first time, I fell in love. I like the simplicity of it as well as the color. Especially the color. The fit wasn’t my favorite at first, however, after looking at myself in the mirror for a few moments, I realized that my curves aren’t going anywhere any time soon (especially with the way I love cookie dough ice cream) so I might as well embrace them. Plus, bodycon dresses are not going out of style anytime soon, if ever. Girls of all different shapes and sizes are wearing them nowadays with extraordinary confidence and it’s about time I hop on that bandwagon.
The necklace I paired with this bodycon dress was a souvenir I bought when I traveled abroad. My friends and I took a trip to Ibiza, Spain and on the last day, there was something equivalent to a flea market going on and I found this necklace at one of the booths. It was the only one they had so I’d like to think I’m the only person in the world with this necklace. A girl can dream right?
My shoes are a treasure I found at Target last summer. I ran in the store for one or two things and found myself stumbling upon the shoe department, which was obviously not on my list. There was one pair of these shoes left + they were my size + they were on sale. Boom. I had great karma that day.
I want to thank Dia&Co. again for inspiring me to step out of my fashion comfort zone. Check out their website and take their style quiz!
Now, I’m curious as to what styles my readers have tried. I want to hear about it!
