Lupita Blue


Keeping it real with y'all, this dress was one step away from looking like a hospital gown.  HA! I can admit the obvious.  I had to really play this dress up, so it didn't look like I was going in for surgery.   It's a great dress, it is comfortable, has a swing design, and is in Lupita Nyong'o's cinderella blue color that I have been dying (yes dying) to wear.  I just had to play it up with accessories and broke up the color with this jacket.  I did get compliments on the look, so that at least told me that nobody thought I was on my way to the maternity ward.  LOL.  Because this was so cute and comfy, I will probably put this in my resort wear pile, as I am anticipating my upcoming getaways.    Please note that this dress and look is not about flattery at all, it's about fashion and style as I see it.  

Style Note:  I bought this dress in a 22. It has a swing design and flares out from the bust, but I wanted to make sure that there enough room for my hips.  The arm room was good.  The jacket is also a nice fit.  I got this in a size 22. It's a knit and does have some give.

  7. I must try swing! It also takes a fashionable eye to take a piece that is a potential fail and make it fabulous as you did !

    1. I picked it up at Forever21 some time ago. It was one of those random trips where you just start rummaging through the accessory department.

  10. I have been following you fur some time now and must admit I hardly ever comment. But I just had to let you know that you are serving it up with this ensemble. The cinderella blue color complements your skin tone beautifully and that jacket is the business. Your style inspires me to step out of my comfort zone. You have a loyal follower here. Keep doing your thing Chasity!

    1. Thank you so much. This dress was def. something a little outside of what I'm used to putting together, but I ended up loving it. Also, thank you for following and commenting. I'm a bit of a lurker myself, so I understand. LOL.
