Let’s Make It Last Forever

Hey Glossies,
A month or so ago, I stumbled on a website called, Ruche. Ruche sells vintage inspired clothing, an inexpensive version of Anthropologie.  There are a few curvy (plus size).  The site adds new things everyday, so it is worth checking out.  I ordered the “let’s make this last forever” dress.  I love the turquoise and navy blue combo, the ruffles and the navy blue and white weave band around the waist.  Since, I do not, typically, wear sleeveless, I am always looking for sleeved options.

So I created 3 sets using the dress as the focal point.  The dress is quite romantic and I did not want to pick accessories that were too trendy.

Look 1

In Look 1, I focused more on the navy in the dress.  I selected the linen jacket to be worn open with tri-teardrop brooch on the ribbon of the jacket. The shape of the brooch is similar to the shape of the spots in the shoes.  The bag color is a deeper shade of the top of the dress.

Look 2

In Look 2, I focused again on the navy and included the white of the band, which is why I selected the striped jacket.  I also liked the shape/silhouette of the jacket and the gathering in the shoulders.  I wanted the ruffles to spill over the lapels.  I picked the t-strap pumps and pearls because they continue the classic look.  I selected the red satchel for that pop of color.

Look 3

In Look 3, I wanted the accessories (except for brooch) to be complementary to the turquoise.  The great thing is that the reddish orange color works well with the navy.  I used texture by selecting suede options.  The brooch would be worn on the lapel of the jacket and the ruffles would be inside the jacket.

      I love the outfits, I wished they made more plus-size dresses (in the styles of the regular sizes)

    oh, what to choose! Anything with stripes frightens me so I will go with look #3. Are those looks to trap a man? Re:music video LOL
