Festive as F#%K

Dress - ASOS/Necklace - Re/Dress/Shoes - c/o Twisted Shoes
I ordered this dress last week because I thought it would be a cute way to look a little festive while still remaining true to my ~style~ on Christmas. (I've found that buying anything from ASOS with "Swing Dress" in the name is a pretty safe bet for me. So comfy and versatile!)

I got this necklace as a Christmas gift from my boss! I don't know if it will ever even make it to our website because we've been selling statement jewelry like crazy in-store this season. I hope statement necklaces never go out of style because I have SO MANY.

These pumps were a gift from Twisted Shoes. I'd never heard of them before they contacted me about working together, but it's safe to say they've won me over! They sell via Amazon, which means that not only are they totally affordable, but they are also Prime eligible, so they ship for free and arrive at your door in two days. I also love that they offer a bunch of wide-width styles (like these Ava Platform Pumps I'm wearing). I constantly struggle to find cute, trendy heels in wide widths, so now I'm officially hooked.

Also, to wrap up- I just wanted to talk a little bit about "flattering" clothing. A dress with a flowy, loose cut like this doesn't seem like it would be a great silhouette for a fat body, but don't ever let irrelevant fashion rules like that stop you from wearing whatever your little heart desires. DO YOU. Confidence is contagious. If you're wearing something you love, you're going to look great no matter what. That's my only fashion rule.

  1. I like the point you made at the end of the post. Confidence can go a long way, as well! Part of the reason why you always look so great in whatever you wear is because you have a big smile on your face. =D

  5. Confidence is so important. I bloody love Asos. I just can't fault them. So reasonable, great offers and discounts and free delivery - perfect! I actually find the 'swing' style dresses are like tents on me but this one suits you perfectly x

  13. Those shoes are to die for, coincidentally I'd also die if I wore those shoes. I'm dreadfully accident prone but they look fantastic on you! As always love the look. What's on your lips?

  17. Hey Erin, any chance you could tell us about your glasses? I'm always on the lookout for fab frames, and yours are super! Also, I love that you do full eye makeup with your specs - that's one of those fashion "rules" I'm trying hard to unlearn!

  20. I think you look great in this dress. I find the fit and flare to be my type of dress to flatter!! I really like this style, but I always feel like I should have gotten it smaller from asos because it's more fabric. I really love this dress though.
