No matter how old or where we are from, we all face this struggle, What To Wear? No matter going to college, work, a party, hangout session, fancy dinner or even going for a holiday, I'd bet that most of us would spend at least more than 15 minutes thinking. Sometimes it takes me more than an hour to get ready and that's just choosing my outfit of the day!
We all know that the struggle is real! It is there. But now imagine, having an additional problem where you can't fit into the normal size range of clothes. Growing up finding a clothing store was like finding a grain of rice among the sand! I usually end up buying clothes from the guys section because I couldn't fit in with the girls cutting. Especially with jeans, guess it really was "all about that bass".
To all those curvy girls out there who feels like there isn't a clothing store for you with new outfit trends, here is a treat for you. FLOW clothing decided to collaborate with me and I thought why not I'd show you 3 different looks you can achieve.
1. Office Look
After working in a publishing company, the thing is, it's all about expressing yourself. Sure it is work but no one ever said you can't look good while working. Plus when you look good, you would feel good internally. Did you know that you work better when you're happy? According to a research done in University of Warwick, UK, they found that happier people are 12% more productive! Also a jacket really does wonders if you got a bigger arm. It helps to cover all of the unnecessary fat all around. Plus you can never go wrong with monochrome in the office.
2. Casual Look
A weekend day out or just running errands for the day, you would want to be in something comfortable. Plus since there isn't any restriction, you can play along with colours. I kind of surprise that orange would give out a warm vibe. Plus sometimes its easy to be in a one piece. Since the colour of the dress is bright, you don't have to think so much about you're accessories. This this case, I went with orange and black. Easy, fast and comfortable, perfect for a casual look.
3. Dinner Look
At least once in our life we would have an opportunity to attend a fancy dinner. Be it prom, company dinner or a wedding dinner at a REALLY nice hotel. It's never bad to overdress than under dressed, something I learn from going for all of my events. I had a dinner event at Mandarin Oriental once and this was the perfect dress! It was actually for Miss Universe Malaysia 2015 Gala Night. I love the fact that this dress has a longer sleeve, as really get anxious of going strapless or sleeveless at times. Plus since it was a dinner, I wanted to be able to eat while still looking good, so the perfect colour was black. The slit there was perfect to show off the legs and especially my nude pointed heels. Since this outfit was all black, I paired it with a metalic clutch. You can actually go crazy with accessorizing yourself, just make sure you don't over do it with the bling.
All of these outfits are from FLOW Clothing Spring Summer 2015 Collection.
