Misproportioned Fashion

Inspired by the Sejour Zip Jacket (worn here) and it’s asymmetrical zipper, I went on a hunt for a few similar pieces. The Alloy sweater (the first one) is my favorite!According to Dictionary.com, asymmetrical is defined as not symmetrical; lacking symmetry; misproportioned. I think that’s what I love most about these pieces below. It makes them kind of a rebel in the sweater world. Kinda like us curvy girls. Always working against what is considered the “norm.” Don’t you just love fashion? LOL

Comfy doesn’t even begin to describe today’s outfit. This top has a great tunic length, great sleeve length, and…

Fancy Flats

Unlike most of you fashionistas out there, I cant always wear a stunning 5-inch high heel. Sometimes, I need to wear flats. I blame it on 5 years of wearing military combat boots. So, when I want to dress up and I know I’m going to doing a lot of walking, I want a shoe that will still stand out. Especially with the holidays coming up. How about a few fancy embellished flats, all under $69.95? Click on the shoe for retail info.

The models strutted down the runway in colorful styles accented with metallic, lace, and beaded embellishments. Sold at Walmart, each style was priced below $25!
