Happy Friday! Don’t you love taking risks? The uncertainty sometimes gives me an adrenaline rush. Without risks, I am pretty sure the plus size fashion industry would not exist today, and for that, I am thankful. Modcloth embodies the word risk. Not because they design clothing for plus size women, but because they break a part of the norm of fashion and present the same sizes for both plus size and straight size. Some brands make bold assumptions such as plus size women want to be completely covered up, or certain cuts are not flattering on us. But not Modcloth. Modcloth designs clothing and makes sure they are designed for an array of sizes up to size 26 and sometimes even 30! Some brands won’t even take the risk to produce certain styles because they make assumptions on what we love! For these risk, I am very thankful!
So how does a blogger pay homage to a brand appreciates taking risks? TAKE RISKS TOO! While browsing on Modcloth’s website, I found this perfect velvet blazer. When I mean perfect, I mean my arms fit, it actually buttons and the burgundy can be seen a mile away. I initially wanted to pair it with a white collared shirt but where is the risk in that? Moreover, then a thought popped into my head, “try to the wearable lingerie trend again!” I knew this would be a longshot, but I paired the blazer a mesh crop top from Torrid! Two minutes into staring at myself in the mirror, I was twerking in the mirror. To bring the outfit together, I paired it with these tuxedo pants from Modcloth and then life was complete!
If you have rocked with me for a bit, you know this is probably one of the riskiest outfits I have taken! So what do you think?
*Style notes: My blazer is a 3x. My pants are a 3x but I could’ve definitely sized down. They were very loose. If you’re a size 22 like me, size down to 2x.*
Mesh Crop: Torrid
Shoes: Shoe Carnival
I am definitely bringing this velvet back to the blog! If you aren’t a risk taker, I will show you an alternate way to wear.
Until next time,
