I am so excited to share this totally cool collab that I was involved in with my friend and blogger babe Lisa of Mustangsallytwo. We were talking about her upcoming holiday look book a few weeks ago and the idea of combining each of her festive looks with a fellow blogger or model was born, so each day this week she has been sharing a unique look featuring a different brand in each post. It’s called the Holiday Double Slay, and it’s been causing quite a merry stir since Monday.
Here’s a recap of the beautiful, sassy, sparkly looks she’s shared so far:
Monday: Lisa and Thera, wearing Lane Bryant
Tuesday: Lisa and Caterina, wearing SexyPlus (a design by Kiyonna)
Wednesday: Lisa and Sarah, wearing Torrid

And….THURSDAY is Lisa and ME wearing SWAK (Sealed with a Kiss Designs)!!!
I was so inspired by Lisa’s holiday project and delighted to be included. I love to create and I just knew we would have bumper to bumper fun.
We are wearing the Carmen dress which is a sheath dress with colour blocking and mesh detail at the top.
The black side panels are a chic optical benefit because they help enhance an hourglass silhouette.
I am wearing the 1X and the fit is true to size. Lisa is wearing the 5X. I LOVE and appreciate that SWAK is devoted to the plus size woman and manufactures accurate sizes up to 6X.
The sweetheart shaped mesh top ads a sexy feel to the look and I would recommend wearing a strapless bra for a smooth unencumbered presentation. I’m smitten with how the mesh tends to have a ruched look too because of the pleating on the neckline hem.
I loVe the deep V plunge at the back which gives the dress that “watch me walk away” appeal.
To contrast Lisa’s choice of a black pump, I went with a sexy lace-up medium-heeled faux-suede boot.
Then, for warmth and coverage I chose a sweater cardi with faux fur collar for that cozy yet glamorous flair.
The statement necklace is an oldie but definitely gave my look some sparkle and decor.
I am wearing shapewear of course, size 1X.
And these photos! What can I say, I am so impressed with the work of Robert Skuja of Robert Skuja Photography for making me feel beautifully captured.
So stay tuned for the rest of Lisa’s Holiday Double Slay campaign with Nakitende Esther on Friday and Amanda Montgomery on Saturday. Thank you Lisa for the gift of creating this with you. Click here for Lisa’s review of this dress on her blog.
Wishing you all a magical Christmas, whatever that means to you.
