BLACK & BLUE IS NOT ALWAYS PAINFUL

I love sleeveless things but I HATE my arms!! They have always been large and I am very insecure about them so.. I NEVER show them. Today I decided to wear this cute cobalt blue Calvin Klein sleeveless dress. I took one picture without my blazer so that you could really see the full dress. Do you know that this means? That I must REALLY love y'all!! I love wearing black and blue together. Every time I hear black and blue I think of painful bruises. lol

I found these fabulous shoes by something Dollhouse or other at Ross Dress for Less. I have never heard of this brand but I thought these were super cute. I know they will not last because they are not real leather. Buying fake leather is a big NO NO for me but at $16.99 I could not pass them up!
DRESS: Calvin Klein
CROPPED TUXEDO BLAZER: Lane Bryant
SHOES: Dollhouse via Ross 
HANDBAG: Bmakowsky

Savannah said...

You (as always) look fabulous! I'm very self conscious about my arms too. And my legs... Basically my whole body! I love blue on you, such a great color! I would totally go on a hunt for those shoes, except they would look horrible on my short frame (plus my stocky calves).
They look great on you! You're rockin' this whole look!
Hope you're having a great weekend with the fam!

Beautiful in blue and those shoes are HOT!!!

juliette said...

So few women like their arms! Mine are not my favorite feature but I decided last summer that I was just going to ignore those little voices and let them show when it's hot. NONE of my friends will go sleeveless (they're all different sizes)so they think I'm crazy - maybe I am! Anyway, the dress looks GREAT and so do your arms Diva! And the jacket and shoes are the perfect compliment.

Kiah,

You knocked this outfit out of the park. It's gorgeous. You might be surprised that those haute shoes last longer than you may think. As many have said and I agree that blue looks really pretty on you and love the hairstyle.
I am self conscious of my arms so I am always putting on a jacket or a coverup. Gotta get over that. You look great with and without the jacket.

This outfit is sick. The shoes and the blazer are so tough - they're perfect together!

And I'm self-conscious about my arms at times too - mostly when I look at photographs of them - but heck, a girl gets hot sometimes, right?

You look gorgeous!

Just Daisy said...

Kiah, you always bring so much spunk to your outfits. That royal blue is divine on you girl! And those don't even look like fake leather, I would of never known cause they are so fierce on their own!

P.S. I love the feather in your bang, your arms are great honey!!!

thanks for being so supportive over on my blog, it means the world to me!

xoxo,
daisy

those shoes are too fabulous!!!! i think dollhouse is a pretty cool brand, they have really nice stuff sometimes...some of them are very teenage but you found a hit! loves it. and your arms are not bad at all Kiah...i think mine are big too but it is just too hot for me to even worry about that. lol. (inserts tyra bank's french accent) you look fierce darling, fierce

Mode Plus said...

Looking stunning again. I understand what you mean with your arms, I have that with my legs. For some reason I cover them in tights. I am working towards releasing them one day though.

Mars said...

I am not really a fan of strappy shoes but yours are fabulous! I'd do the same if I were you (buy them even if they are not made of genuine leather). That dress is beautiful, and you look great in it, with or without the blazer. :)

I think your arms look just fine but I think that dress is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S and those shoes. I think I'd be willing to commit murder for them. Go on with your bad self.

Girl you are hurtin' em' with those gladiators! I bet they last longer than you think. I kinda have a complex about my arms too. They use to be really toned and all but I've been slacking on the work-out tip and now I look like a freggin line-backer....getting back in the gym this summer!!! You look flyy as always! I love your blog and positive energy. Thank you for always leaving such wonderful comments on my blog!

Susan-June said...

I think your arms look fine however I can't talk because I feel the same about mine. Really though nobody is lookin at your arms Kiah, your face is so very lovely I'm sure anybody who looks at you would be transfixed by your beauty and sense of style.

Wida said...

Ms. Givens said...

You look great!
I dont like my arms either. I got a new Lands End tankini and was going to put a picture of me in it for my blog but it makes me look like I am all arms & shoulders (like a football player) so I didnt keep the picture. Its the kind that is a halter and ties around the neck. Must not be my most flattering look but I like the fit so well I am keeping it.
