What's better than a striped top? A striped top with striped pants! #Stripes4Lyfe! This is the cashmere sweater I mentioned in Friday's post and the pants from this post. If you follow me on Snapchat you know I wore this look last Tuesday to work. Whenever I can't figure out what shoes to wear with a look I always go to leopard and it rarely steers me wrong!
A few of you sent me emails and comments after last week's What's In My Bag to see how the 15″ Dagne Dover tote looks near my body, if it's too big, and if it fits over my shoulder. As you can see it's not too big and fits quite comfortably over the shoulder even when full.
Many of you have also reached out complaining how the current delicate necklace trend isn't kind to those of us who are larger or curvy. So many of the popular brands only carry 16″ chains; some carry 18″ but it's still too short for many. My solution? Etsy! This necklace is from Etsy seller bellezamia, the quality is excellent, the price cheaper than a lot of the trendy brands, and I could choose my chain length (this is 20″). Etsy is also my go-to for on-trend rings in sizes larger than 7 or 8. A variety of sizes and you get to support a small business or independent artisan? Win/win!
