Adding To My Curvy Closet

Today I went to Curvy Chic Closet in Aloha Oregon.  Through the awesome power of social networking I found out about this great event via Facebook and I am so glad I did!  It was held at a church and was packed full of clothing, shoes and purses from all different decades in all different sizes.  It was also a consignment sale so people were able to sell their clothes for cash!  I managed to find a vintage print blouse for $4.00, a semi-sheer white blouse for $5.00 and a grey and black infinity dress from SWAK for $10.50!  3 great finds and all for less than $20 dollars!

In he first pictures I am wearing my vintage print blouse paired with an a-line black knit skirt I made myself.  It's kind of a wardrobe staple for me.  I have about 3 different styles of black skirts to go with any occasion.  I wore a black bandeau top underneath the blouse and pulled it all together with my black and silver belt.

This top actually is rather tight on me, I have a big bust and broad  shoulders, but I had to have it so I made it work in my wardrobe.  I think I want to be more daring with clothes.  If they don't fit exactly how they should I shouldn't dismiss them.  No one can actually tell that under this skirt the top is unbuttoned and holding on for dear life.  All that really matters is I love it and I think it looks fabulous on me!

In this next outfit I used the semi-sheer white blouse I bought at the sale and combine it with an old tank dress that was one of my first sewing projects from a few years back.   Once again all of the buttons wouldn't connect so I just tied the shirt off under the bust.
