A Little Black Dress with Dia&Co
It is a must in every lady's closet, no matter the size, no matter the style. The famous little black dress! But let's take things from the beginning!
Dia&Co is a gift to plus size women from the fashion entities of our world! I signed up and received my first styled box last week, and I just couldn't be happier. Dia&Co feel like my best girlfriend with tips and inside looks in the industry that I otherwise wouldn't be able to get. Dia knows my style and sends me the best of the best tailored just for me. To top it all off during the New York Fashion Week, Dia&Co gave me an inside look into all sorts of runway shows, kind of like Skyping with your BFF!
Anyway, last week I visited their site and took a personalized fashion quiz. Within minutes, I received the warmest welcome to the company. $20 and 7 days later I received a box with 5 garments tailored to my size and style. The sweetest letter accompanied the box, and my stylist was giving me tips on how to style each outfit for maximum complements! She encouraged me to try everything on, and if I chose to keep anything my $20 would be applied to my purchase. Also, if I chose to keep everything a 20% discount was going to apply. I was basically getting the deal of the century, I mean how cool is that?
In my Dia&Co box there were two adorable blouses, a pair of skinny jeans, a scarf and this GORGEOUS little black dress from Eloquii. Perfect fit and so flattering. My hour glass figure looks great in pencil dresses, but my tummy is not always a feature I like to accentuate. This cape dress, however, has seams along the side running from my armpit area to the end of my bust giving this dress the illusion of a fit and flair. The color and a good shape-wear helps with the illusion, and next thing you know this dress is my new favorite!
I had a blast getting ready and pairing it with my favorite red stilettos and an elegant up-do. I get so many complements on my make-up lately that I must devote a post to it, but for now, let me share my little friend named MAC lipstick Velvet-Teddy. The matte nude/brown color looks so good with my complexion and with just about every look from elegant date night to jeans and sneakers for a coffee run.
I might not live in LA anymore, so film festivals, award nights and movie premiers are not a part of my daily life, but let me tell you, getting all dolled up is still my favorite thing to do, and this little black dress is my new statement!
