STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - THE FLIRTY BACK FLORAL

All my life I have dealt with body-image issues: I never liked my arms, my tummy, my inverted triangle body shape.......and the list goes on, but I've never let this come in my way of dressing up. With years of trial-and-error, I can now say that I've triumphantly decoded the mystery behind dressing for my body-type, which means no body-cons, no mega sleeves, no stretch and jersey materials. It is hard not to be able to enjoy all the seasonal trends, but working my outfit based on my body-type, around those trends- is now a piece of cake. For instance, the other day I just wore a cropped top and I didn't feel one bit conscious. The top was cropped but still long enough to hide my tummy flaws. You could see it for yourself post here... 
Anyways, sexy-open-backs, noodle-straps have enjoyed a fair share of fame this summer. I had been wanting to try one, and if you remember this dress, which was a more demure way of wearing sexy-back, I thought I did good.  

But today, I was feeling more dare-devilish and decided to break out this new damsel in town. It is fun, floral, flirty and black- another easy way to camouflage all bumps and fat....lol ! I like how it has a drawstring-waist and not an elastic one. The dress hits mid-calf, which would be my ideal length- preference in a midi dress. If you decide buying it, I would suggest sizing down, it does fit loose. 
 I so urged wearing high heels, which knowing myself would have been the first choice, but I wanted to think outside the box, hence the flats. And why not, when the flats are so cool, have metal heel, and idealize casual-meets-glam, who wouldn't like wearing them???? They do remind me of the Aquazzura ones , but I am glad I found my substitute, and for a lot less. With due intentions of matching my lips and the shoes, my fall favorite lipstick from +MAC Cosmetics is revisiting. Honestly speaking, I think I could have done better with my hair, an up-do or even a low pony have looked chic. But overall, a look perfect for day out with friends...
