Grab Her Style/OOTD: “Chip On My Shoulder” (Beyonce’s Interview w/ Oprah Outfit)
I’m sure by now everyone in the world has seen Beyonce’s interview with Oprah this past Saturday on OWN. I really enjoyed the Q & A session (although I wish there would’ve been more in depth questions) but I more so was drawn to the casualness yet chicness of B’s outfit choice. She wore just a basic print tee with liquid leggings and a blazer. I figured that this would be a great look to re-create. Now I must point out that when I do these post of ‘Looks for Less’ or ‘Grab Her Style’ it’s not that I’m trying to be like these artist, it’s more so to show my that YES, plus-size ladies can wear some of the same items as celebs or our slender counterparts AND look just as great while doing so. Plus why spend a million bucks if you don’t have to. I’m all about trends which is why I renamed my blog ‘Trendy Curves’ last year. So with all of that said here’s my version of Beyonce’s look.
I had coincidentally just purchased this tie-front spiked shoulder top from Rainbow on Friday while wasting time before going to the movies. It was only $16.99 and it also comes in black and red. When I saw Beyonce’s interview the very next day I was like I can use this shirt as MY re-creation of her look. It’s not available online just yet but Rainbow does have a similar version on their site here. (Obviously the spikes on the shoulder of the shirt influenced the ‘Chip on my Shoulder’ title of this post, hehe). I wore these High Waist Faux Leather Leggings from Posh Shoppe, $26.99 and a pointy-shoulder blazer that Simply Be gifted me a few years ago. To coordinate with the spiked shoulders on the shirt I wore these spiked embellished pumps that I got from Bare Feet Shoes, $54.99. (I wore them before here). If you notice I didn’t wear any earrings while having the shirt on as to not distract the attention from the top of the shirt. But when I paired up the blazer to the outfit I added a gold necklace since the shoulders of the shirt wouldn’t be seen. Even with liquid (faux-leather) leggings you can dress your outfit up or down as to where it’ll be suitable for a date, hanging with the girls or yes, even an interview with Oprah!
You did it Better on a Budget! 😉
Here’s my personal take and it’s not bashing Bey or any one Individual. Often enough I’ve seen celebrities knowing they will be seen by Millions dress like it ain’t all that! Sure nobody can look glam 24/7, but … If I were going to be seen on TV local or around the World (Especially sitting next to Oprah) my hair, make up, dogs n paws and my outfit would look the Best that I could! I’ve seen pics from your interviews and You are Dress to Impress … if you didn’t your Mommy would probably let you Know It! Mine Would! lol
I agree with you statement 100%
Thank you Ms. Dee, I would love to see your take on this outfit too please!
You are too much!!! This outfit is classic and appropriate for any event unless it is formal. I must copy this look. I have all of the pieces except the shoes but I’m sure I will find something appropriate.
I agree with you about the interview. I came away not knowing too much more than I did before the interview. I could say something about the documentary but I will stick with the clothing comments (smile).
Can’t wait to see what you’re wearing next!
