This is the String of Twirls Dress by Moon from Modcloth. I had never ordered from Modcloth beore but I went wild during their fantastic Black Friday sale and ordered 13 items, knowing most of them probably wouldn't work for me. Sure enough eight items got sent back, seven of them were too small on me. Even with those low odds their free returns makes it worth it to try them again in the future for me.
Unlike most of the other items from Modcloth this may have even run slightly big on me. It's stretchy and comfortable, always a positive. The cardigan was bought secondhand through Fattoo but it's from Torrid.
The dress has a lovely detailed neckline of a gold tone chain and faux pearls.
With the pearl neckline and faux collar there wasn't much room for embellishment but I added a vintage looking pair of earrings to add a little sparkle.
The minimized other accesorries finally allowed me to the perfect oppurtunity to wear my statement handband.
The headband was another Fattoo purchase. I think it's just too fun, whimsical, and over the top for daily wear; making it just right for a glam evening.
These shoes were another one of my keepers from Modcloth. They are first heel purchase in many years but they were just too fun to resist.
I paired the shoes with a textured tight on accident at first as I was searching for my solid black ones but I think the look is a happy accident.
I wish everyone happy holidays and I hope all of my fat sisters get the oppurtunity to go out in glamour and glitz, feeling confident and beautiful! Please go check out more plus sized holiday glitz and glam from the rest of the beautiful Ahead of the Curve ladies!
