In my previous post featuring Ardene’s, I talked about the exciting discovery that their size XL in clothing actually fits my size 16, and I featured a lovely pastel, bohemian maxi dress. And because they were offering a second dress at $1, I had to pick up this lovely navy diamond print strapless maxi.
It was a little long for my compact 5’1″ self, so I did get it hemmed – and yes ladies, I do encourage you to purchase things that you love and INVEST in a slight alteration. Isn’t the prefect fit and that fabulous feeling worth it?
I decided to coordainte the look with unexpected pastels, also from Ardene’s, and picked up this pastel chain link long necklace, and beaded bracelet bunch.
A couple of selfies, for good measure…
To keep the look casual and bohemian, I chose these caramel gladiator sandals, ALSO from Ardene’s. Yup, the entire look, for a plus size gal like me, from Ardene’s. Who woulda thought?
And here’s the side by side.
I shot this look myself using my new tri-pod (how awesomely independent and resourceful of me) at the beautiful Brampton Heartlake Conservation Area. Inviting rolling landscapes, a gazebo, bridges, ducks – I’ll definitely be shooting there again.
