Blogger Swap Day 5

It's the final day of my blogger swap with Ashley from A Fashion Fixation.  A week ago, Ashley mailed me several items of hers to style and I did the same for her.  Check out how she has been styling up some of my pieces over on her blog!  This kimono posed a big challenge for me.  Normally I don't choose to wear things that are baggy or flowy because they hide my curves and make me look a little

So.... I decided to throw on a belt and pair it with some skinny jeans to balance out the fullness on top.  I really liked this look, and got quite a few comments about the top when I was in the grocery store yesterday.  I had a great time doing this swap with Ashley, and I'm already looking forward to my next swap!  Any takers on being my next swap buddy?  Email me!

Kimono: Ashley's
Cardi: Victoria's Secret
Jeans: Gap
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Collection
Belt: I heart Ronson
Bag: Coach

True story: I was being eaten alive by mosquitos when I was taking pictures last night.  That will teach me never to take pictures at dusk on a humid day in Indiana.  Lesson learned...

Email me or tweet me if you're interested in being my swap buddy!

Doing a swap would be so fun!
I was just telling someone last night that I have to wear styles that accentuate my curves, instead of something flowy that hides my figure. We've gotta work those curves, girl. Have a great weekend!

omg I LOVE this outfit! The kimono top is perfect with the belt! And yes, I frequently feel like the Stay Puft man when I wear big billowy things. Either that, or I look like I have a bun in the oven.

I love that you belted the flowy top! I also do not like to wear things that are too flowy because it really isn't figure flattering. Thank goodness I can wear belts around my waist.
