This is my week 4 offering for The Plus Size Work Wear Challenge. This weeks theme was ‘Pop Yo’ Colour’ (total rip off of the Usher track ‘Pop Ya Collar’, I know!) and I’m wearing this gorgeous Aztec print tunic from Curvissa which I’ve been dying to show you for ages!!!!
The guys over at plus size clothing retailer, Curvissa have been sending me press releases for a long time but I’d never actually experienced their clothing, so when they kindly offered to send me an item to check out I jumped at the chance so I could pass on my experiences to you guys. When I was rummaging through my wardrobe for something for this weeks challenge I remembered this little number and although it’s not in your face, bold, bright colour, I think the pattern is really striking and is just enough to make it fun to wear but is still appropriate for the work place too. I dressed mine up with basic black leggings and a black cardigan and thought it was perfect for work!
Black Boyfriend Cardigan – Simply Be
Black Leggings – £14.99 (Pack of 2) New Look Inspire
Necklace – Primark
It’s alright ain’t it? This particular dress is available up to a UK size 32. There isn’t any stretch in this dress at all but it is made in a really comfy, lightweight cotton which is a rarity in plus size clothing. I stuck with my usual size in dresses and I was really impressed with the fit, plenty of room around the bust and arms, I maybe would have liked ever so slightly more room around the tummy area but that’s probably my only point of note. After my experience with this dress I will definitely be browsing Curvissa more often for items, especially work wear and basics. So, I’m a fan, thumbs up from me Curvissa! Thanks!
Have you ever used Curvissa? What do you think?
