Maybe My Style Is Developed Already?


I’m doing the Thirty Pretty Projects from Already Pretty to help myself transition stylistically and develop better ways of dressing my newly plus-sized body. I struggled hard the first week and haven’t found time to write about the second, but today I went to try on bridesmaid dresses. I found this fantastic dress and styled it with red accents…to great effect!

Maybe I know a bit about this style thing after all.

  1. Ooo, that dress is gorgeous on you!

      Thanks! I thought so…it’s not the one we got for the wedding, but it’s a goodie!

  2. H. E. Lexus says:

    Gorgeous look. Great style, love the heels. Very good job! 😉

    Newly plus-sized body?

    1. Coleen says:

      Newly officially plus-sized. I’ve gained a bit of weight since this time last year, and although my boobs are always plus (plus plus plus haha), I had been wearing a size 10 in dresses/pants last year in Korea. I’m now a 14/16.

      It’s hard to define because the high fashion definition of “plus” is a size 8, and the perception of “plus” is sometimes different from how I look because I’m tall. I’m sure you get it! 🙂

    I definitely do! I’m a 10/12 in dresses but a 15/16/17 in pants size. I have the hardest time because being tall and categorically plus-size, I find that the style blogs I’ve looked at for “curvy” women don’t work as well because of my height or my specific dimensions. I also understand the boob thing too. Basically, Victoria’s Secret is my only hope for fitted bras that lift the ladies properly. Good luck, Coleen. This is a cool project!

      No worries! Check out Fashion for Giants. It’s a style blog of a tall and plus-sized vitage-y lady. It’s pretty sweet.
