This past Saturday November 19 I was invited to attend a special dinner and show by Kat Leonard, a comedienne and TV personality, called My Selfie. It was a tribute to body positivity and self-love. It was a great show and my outfit was killer so here’s the scoop:
Last year at my boutique SexyPlus, a Canadian plus size clothing store located in Mississauga, Ontario, I was offering this super sassy faux-leather peplum dress and I just had to grab one for myself before it sold out (which happened pretty fast). It had everything I want in a party dress: v-neck, sleeves (which were mesh but that was fine), peplum and faux leather. What a winner.
A strapless bra would have been better to avoid my straps showing but I knew I was going to keep my FABULOUS jacket on most of the night because of the cold temps.
I wore it with fishnet stockings from SexyPlus to provide that tiny bit of coverage and interest between the skirt hem and the boots. I chose a choker from the #chokerchick collection at SexyPlus offered by Caterina Moda and a simple earring to match.
I wore my tall medium heel boots from Addition-Elle which I love because the heel is actually manageable and I can stand to be in them for a few hours. It provides some height and a more evening look than a flat would have.
The jacket is a stunning designer piece also from SexyPlus – but from last year, from the Joseph Ribkoff Plus Size Collection. And the thing with these amazing statement pieces is that I don’t carry too many of them at the store so when one comes along, you just have to grab it because you know it will be a winner for years to come.
The dark hint of blue, the shine from the taffeta, and the wired collar and sleeves of the jacket with the sexy black business going on underneath gave me the ultimate polished biker chick contrast. And that’s so me.
