"SNAZZY" SAILOR

 I got this dress at one of my favorite thrift stores and I loved the top part of it however the bottom I did NOT so I cut the bottom off and decided to just use it as a top. I "snazzed" it up with my Ralph Lauren wide leg sailor pants, Target shoes, F21 necklace and Kenneth Cole sunnies. These pictures were taken at the Hispanic Cultural Center. I really liked the background because although we are in Texas it reminds me of the beautiful stucco homes and desert sand back home in Arizona.

***FASHION BLOGGERS NEWSFLASH***
For those of you that don't know... my girl Gabi at formerly known as Young, Fat and Fabulous has changed her blog name to GABI FRESH. You need to go over and check out her block party post here . She got the amazing opportunity to be the stylist for a Wilhelmina fashion shoot . The outfits she put together for these models are bananas!! I have a few of the ASOS Curve pieces that she used and now I am totally inspired to wear them differently than I had originally intended. Her color mixing skills are SICK! Gabi is by far my favorite plus size fashion blogger. She does not play by the rules and is fearless when it comes to style. 
If you have never been to her blog before then you are straight slippin!! lol Be sure to check it out!

I love the outfit, and cutting that dress into a blouse was a great idea. I have a few dresses I might do that to myself.

I also love gabi too! She is so talented and she's from MI too. Way to represent!
