#GIRLBOSS FUCHSIA TROUSERS
I'm all about finding your clothing comfort zone, but occasionally, I will step outside of my self-imposed boundaries to try something crazy. For example, when the Victoria Beckham for Target line dropped, I didn't opt for the black dress or black trousers. Nope. I had to have the fuchsia trousers. FUCHSIA GUYS!!!!!! I don't have a single piece of clothing this bright in my closet, let alone a lipstick of the same hue in my make up bag. I keep it simple. All black everything is my sweet spot. But since plus size fashion has evolved, and now, we have more options than ever, maybe I should stop playing it safe with all-black ensembles. And with this post, I am making a pact with myself to do just that.
Now, more about these plus size fuchsia twill flared trousers, which have me in permanent heart eyes. I usually wear a size 16, but since I was ordering these online, sight unseen, I chose to order a size up. The material does stretch, but the waist band does not. So the size 18 fit me perfectly! The trousers were a little long, but I had them altered, and now they are perfect.
Here is my dilemma, where do I wear these pants? What do y'all think? I'm imagining blogging events, conferences, and maybe a fancy brunch? I hope I get the guts to wear these into the office one day—all of my coworkers would probably freak out. HAH!!
Also, I scored this adorable plus size finn ruffle trim peplum top from Fashion to Figure in my Dia & Co box. Dia & Co is a personal styling service for plus size women, similar to Stitch Fix, but they only cater to the plus size figure, which means you are getting clothes hand picked for your shape! You can request this top in your next Dia & Co order! Just let your stylist know!
Here's to trying new things, and stepping outside of my comfort zone!
