The wrap dress is one of those closet staples that every woman should own. This one is made out of a soft sweater material which makes it perfect for the office Christmas party. Ankle strap wedges (which I love) make this outfit a hit. Just add a sparkly necklace, earrings, and clutch and you're all set to make heads turn.
I HAD to try on this skirt after seeing one of my favorite You Tubers (Glitterandlazers) wear it in one of her videos. It's actually the reason why I made the trek to Torrid in the first place. And it has a sexy slit in the front with laces.
Please excuse the fact that I'm not wearing shape wear. To me, not wearing shape wear should be one of the 7 deadly sins. It makes you look more put together and smooths out all the lumps and bumps for a more streamline look. I've always loved an off the shoulder top of any kind, so this sweater is no exception.
I decided to top this outfit off with a cute little band jacket with a slight peplum. I could've gone down a size in it, but you get the idea. It also comes in olive as well.
I thought this was the cutest little sweater dress, with emphasis on little. I'd definitely add some tights or leggings to this for modesty's sake. And the belt with the bow just adds that special touch.
I never would've picked this dress out for myself. When Katie the manager handed it to me, I was like....eh heh. Once I tried it on, it fit like a dream and really shows off my curves. And...
it's got sexy splits in the front!!! Definitely adds something extra to the 90's flower child dress that's unexpected. Kudos to you @torridfashion.
I know I've already bragged on these knee boots, but to add another reason to buy them, I was able to not only zip them up without slouching, but I was able to zip them WITH A TUCKED IN PANT LEG!!! This is unheard of for me (and probably a lot of other women with larger calves.) You can't go wrong with all black either. Especially during the winter months. Plus, it makes you look smaller.
For this next look, I decided to swap the black sweater with this red one. Usually, I;m not a fan of the cold shoulder AT ALL!! But, this sweater has made me change my mind. I really like it a lot and it's perfect for the holidays. I've also stepped out of my comfort zone once again and I'm wearing jeggings. The fit of these is nothing like jeggings I've tried on in the past. These actually feel and fit like jeans. Since I'm pear-shaped, I always have a problem with pants/jeans doing that weird thing in the crotch. Not with these, though. If you're also pear-shaped, I suggest trying on a pair of their jeggings for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
So, I decided to save my most favorite piece for last. You'll be able to tell it's my favorite because of the number of pictures I took in it. **Warning** you're about to see a whole heap of pictures that you may find unnecessary, but I think it, was so deal with it. LOL!!
I. LOVE. THIS. COAT. Do you hear me???!!! It has faux leather sleeves and epaulets on the shoulders. It kinda reminded me of a fancy band jacket/ military uniform jacket. And the placement of the pockets are awesome. So, to show you guys how much I love this coat, here come the pics!!
All and all, Torrid has made great strides to be a contender in the plus-sized retail market. To be able to do that, retailers have to provide consumers with pieces they want to wear and make them feel and look great. Torrid has excelled above and beyond my expectations. I'm truly impressed.
So, if you're ever in the Hattiesburg area, don't hesitate to visit Torrid and be blown away for yourself. Tell Katie and Lisa that I sent you. You won't be disappointed.
