OOTD: “Orange Delight”

It is so great when bloggers REALLY support other bloggers. That’s exactly what transpired between me and one of my absolute favorite curvy bloggers, Melissa of Chic and Curvy. I truly do love her blog. I subscribed to it a while ago just to keep us with all of the plus-size fashion that I may not even have knowledge of yet. Melissa is on point at all times. That’s why when she reached out to me recently to do a review for her online boutique I gladly obliged. In addition to Melissa’s blog, she also runs Chic and Curvy Boutique. There you will find trendy plus-size clothing in sizes up to 3X. I chose to wear this Orange Asymmetrical Mermaid Maxi Dress. Ironically I had been watching this dress since earlier this summer on another site and was glad when I found it on Melissa’s. It is made of a comfy t-shirt type material and is form fitting on. That’s why I wore a one-piece boy-leg bodyshaper to smooth out any bumps or bulges. (But in actuality after I looked at my pics and saw my ‘girdlelines’, I should have worn my shaper without the boy-legs. Hey, we all make mistakes). I really do like the dress overall and the off-the-shoulder design gave it a certain sexiness. (I even got a compliment from someone who NEVER says anything to me 🙂
