Let me just start out by saying that I rarely wear loose, fitted, flowy, bloussant type blouses since I feel like a lot of them make you look much bigger than you really are. I believe in the power of wraps, layers and fitted tops that give you shape versus hiding your shape. However, I was out shopping, styling a friend of mine on a budget when I discovered this top at JCPenney aka “J Couture”. I had recently purchased some royal blue wedges from JCREW and knew I could rock this top with my Torrid Ankle Zip Stiletto Jeans. The recent LA “heatwave” had me feeling extra colorful and I threw in my red leather embossed clutch from Top Shop that I purchased on my trip to London last year.
The other reason I pulled together this outfit is because I wanted to show that you can often find pieces in the straight size section that work for plus sizes as well. I’m all about mixing and matching as long as the fit is right. Don’t be afraid to step outside your normal shopping zones and experiment!
