I’ll be honest. I wasn’t looking forward to the company holiday party. I’m going stag and I don’t have anything to wear and it’s so hard to find festive yet classy holiday styles in plus-size. Most of it is firmly in spinster territory.
But then Lane Bryant asked me to check out their holiday looks and I was pleasantly surprised. I immediately set my sights on the matte sequin pencil skirt – I’ve been dreaming of a sequin skirt for ages, and I firmly believe that every woman should own one, so I was hopeful that this was my big chance.
As most curvy girls know, everything doesn’t look good on everyone, so you have to pick and choose and try things on! Yes – that means I fought the holiday crowds and ventured to the mall this weekend in search of that sequin skirt. I found the skirt and it’s a dream (after the holiday party, I have visions of pairing it with a simple t-shirt and flats), but a bit too big. Instead of crushed holiday party dreams, the manager is ordering my size from another store and it will be here in time for the party!
Cute skirt? Check. Excellent customer service? Check. Me no longer dreading the holiday party? Double check.
Here’s the look I have in mind – a classic white blouse, some textured tights, and all the sparkle I can pile on…
(This high low dress also gets an honorable mention. I’m not usually fan of the style, but I love the over-sized sequin and the shade of green.)
This holiday party might not turn out so bad after all! And yours might not be so bad, either…
