Body: H&M Divided Exclusive (2009)
I already wrote about → my visit to the Curvy® plus-size fair, today I’ve got my outfit for you. I went for a special but casual look – instead of wearing black (which is the most-seen color at such events), I wanted to show some color (remember my resolutions for 2016? Take this as an example! ;)), that’s why I chose my favorite skirt ever, the “Eyoma” skirt from Dearcurves – and it was a major success at the fair, everyone loved it! If you want to get your own skirt, you can order it → here and by using the discount code queen20, you’ll get 20% off! ;)
When I last wore the skirt, I went for the actual lookbook look and paired it with the “Eyoma” body with a traditional Ankara print, so this time I dug up a veeeery old piece out of my closet. The body is from the 2009 “Divided Exclusive” collection (and it’s size EU 40, still fits without any problems!), so you see: sometimes keeping things and wearing them again is worth it – I think that’s a great match!
For the casual look, I had to choose flats. Since it doesn’t matter which kind of flat shoes you wear for about 6 hours of standing and walking around (your feet will always hurt afterwards, as did mine), I did something that’s quite unusual for me: I wore sneakers. But of course not without being fabulous and picking my sequined Chucks – had to be sparkling. :) I’m normally totally against that mixture, but somehow I really loved the combo of those glittering shoes with the rather elegant look. And it shows that you can wear this skirt like that – casually – too.
