R. I. P.





















Happy Sunday!!!!!
 
I know you are wondering why I named my post R.I.P and why my pictures were taken at the cemetery. Well today I'm saying goodbye to the woman who doesn't try "Trends" to the woman  who doesn't  show her Curves by hiding behind big shirts and baggy pants and to the woman who only wears a Dress with a blazer / cardigan . Goodbye to not wanting to buy Jeans that fit because she doesn't like the number inside, afraid others will know lol Silly me !!!
 
R.I.P to the old me the new me has arrived and I love it !!!!
 
What I'm Wearing: skirt, watch (NY&CO) peplum top (Marshalls) heels (Target) clutch(Dollar Tree) accessories (F21)
 
Stay tuned for more peplum, fitted dresses , and Yes jeans
 
xoxo Melissa Ward

You look great Melissa, love the peplum top and those shoes. I have yet to get anything peplum (top or dress) I haven't been shopping in what seems like forever, but I do want to add at least a top to my wardrobe before it goes out of style!!!


Yaaay for being brave and trying something new and really embracing those curves!!! I still tend to cover up because I still have issues with my body and showing my curves so I really needed this. I shy away from so many great looks because I am afraid of what I might look like in it and like you I don't like looking at the size tag. But I have to keep over coming that until I get to the size I want to be!!

This is a very lovely profile on you. I've avoided peplums because I was afraid they aren't flattering to my curves...but this gives me confidence. I reallly like this particular peplum because it is longer and softer looking than some of them.

@chioma I was bored with my wardrobe , so I knew my readers had to feel the same . I'm excited about the peplum pieces I've added to my wardrobe , more fitted tops and dresses that flatter my curves and jeans I'm most excited about !!! Ive always liked my curves now its time I fall in love with them :)

I am doing a praise dance at my desk!!! I love everything about this post and especially that you are loving yourself just the way you and you look fantastic! I actually had to look twice when I opened my google reader, I didn't recognize you in that peplum. You look good hunty =)

I already loved your style, I can't wait to see what new trends you try.
