Never Would I Ever with The Curvy Fashionista

Every month, we ask one of our Gwynnie Bee members to take a style outside of their wheelhouse for a 24-hour test drive. This edition of “Never Would I Ever” Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista takes a sweet and feminine dress she’d never gravitate towards, to see if she might just be a convert!

What is your usual personal style?
Ohhh I sit somewhere between the bohemian flower child and the glam rock of the 70s/80s- I think or would love to be. For me I dress to my mood, not always a trend- this is the Virgo in me!

Why is this look out of your comfort zone?
You know, I rarely opt for something soooo sweet. I tend to play in items that are both hard and soft- or than can be. Add to the pleating and the cold shoulder, these two finishes I often find myself shying away from.

Tell us about how your impression changes of this garment over the day! 
I was hesitant, cautious, and erred on the side of trepidation. BUT i was open to it and once I got it on and styled it up, I have to say… I was pleasantly surprised. The length did not bother me either!

Give us a styling tip for those hesitant to try out this look!
Accessories. This dress is all about pulling it all together and a great boot and jacket give this the finishing touch that you need.
