From Stripes With Love





Dress: Liz Lang Maternity (for Target)  Clutch: Asos  Wedges: Sam Edelman  Watch; NY&Co.
Necklace: F21 Bracelets/Cuff: Gifted Givenchy, Soho Jewel Shop/HM
I'm a sucker for stripes! I turn my head from all the rules of stripes not being worn because it doesn't flatter this it doesn't flatter that etc. Especially with a dress like this?? How could I possibly go wrong? All hail comfort maternity clothes!! I say this because it gives a curvy woman more options to shop and find great pieces which she can feel good in! I'm all for it, sorry mommies to be I shopped your section and it was great!

For those who follow me on twitter I mentioned this great news yesterday! I was graciously featured as Skinny Minority Blog's Style Hero. Karima Renee does a fantastic job depicting and showcasing how wonderful and fashionable curvy women are! A great force to be reckoned with for sure. Be sure to check out the post and also take great inspiration and insight on her blog.

I love this dress. It looks perfect for weekend activities. I actually just added it to my Target shopping bag because I loved it so much, but question--do I order my normal size even though it's maternity? I usually wear an XL, so does that mean I order an XL in this dress too? (I'm not preggers, fyi :))

Thank you Ladies! This dress so very body conscience but yet very wearable and comfortable

@rocharron I recommend you order in your true size as the dress will fit to your body...in a good way! (-:
Let me know how it turns out!
