Affordable Holiday Fashion for My Plus Size Girls

CB-sponsored-post-white-600#shop Affordable Holiday Fashion

Possibly one of the hardest things to do, is to find an affordable cocktail dress for the holidays. With all the upcoming dinners, office parties and cocktail parties, a girl may have to pick up a 2nd job just to keep up. Not only is finding something affordable hard but finding something that fits my plus size frame is even harder… I’m telling you guys the struggle is real!

Usually, around the holidays, I’m in a weird space for some reason or another. But this year, mama is ready! I plan to get out and paint the town red and green, you get my point! This weekend, I checked out the searsStyle section to see what they had available for the holiday season and after some searching, I came up with a few options. I really wanted to find something that had a little umph but was classy enough to go from the office to dinner or even church if I wanted.  I was really looking for something that was appropriate for whatever setting I’m in. I was so glad when I spotted this dress. This dress will take you from day to night.  Not only was it cute but you can still see my curves, no grandma dresses over here.

You guys know, I don’t do boring! I need a little pizazz in everything that I do. So when I came across this little black dress, I hurried and snatched it up! I love how the dress was simple but the gold accents made it stand out. The fabric was breathable and very easy to wear. Since, I am a plus size girl, I have to be very careful with what I wear. I don’t want a dress that’s going to make mama look bigger than what she is, that’s another reason why I picked this dress.

But perhaps the best thing about this dress was its price tag! This dress was only $53.00! Can you believe that? The price was just right, which still leaves me with cash to purchase more holiday goodies. I’m a Shop Your Way Member so I saved an additional $10.00 of my purchase. The great thing about this dress is that you can switch it up, you can add a belt and/or a blazer to give this dress one look during the day and another at night! And of course, you can always add bright colorful shoes like I did! Sometimes simple goes a long way! And what’s the holiday season without sequins???? I had to pull her out, she just screams glam!!
