Disclosure: Swimsuit was sent to me by Evans UK PR for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Hi Guys & Dolls!
A few weeks back I was approached by Evans to do a review of their new swimsuit line. At first I was hesitant, because as much as I’m all for empowerment, and self-acceptance, I’m just not comfortable being stripped down to just a bathing suit on the internet. Even those of us with mucho confidence sometimes want to keep something private. At least for now. Super sexy, and fabulous plus size models like Tess Munster post is swimsuits and lingerie all the time, and inspire me to say “to hell with it”
but I’m just not quite there yet. I was relieved when the rep from Evans assured me they only wanted an honest review! Read more
Hi Guys & Dolls!
A few weeks ago I went to see the Tran-Siberian Orchestra in Sacramento California. Being that this was a Christmas event and my first time seeing a performance in an Arena I wanted to look fabulous but be comfortable and this dress from SWAN by Clements Ribeiro for Evans was just the thing! Chic & fun without trying too hard- that’s my goal!
Check out that wind giving me a cotton-candy hair halo!
Every thing about this dress screams RIGHT NOW yet is has a timeless feel to it. The Burgundy background and blue print are very in trend but I think are classic enough that this dress will be a fall staple for me for years to come. I love the little things, like the metallic threading running vertically though the fabric and the lace cut out at the shoulder. I Love this dress!
My necklace is a Navajo White Turquoise piece my husband gave me years ago, the Scarf is a “Pashmina” with tied & fringed ends that I painstakingly tied together to make an infinity scarf. It’s soft & silky and the color makes me happy.
Up close you can see the metallic threading. My small waist is one a the things I love about my body, so I’m always happy to show it off with a killer belt. This one is from the Clements Ribeiro SWAN line for Evans. You can just barely tell but the metal is rose gold. Little details like that really make an outfit special.
My bracelet is Faceted Rainbow moonstone, a birthday present from Mr VOT.
My Makeup. I used the Tarte Treat yourself to Gorgeous Palette and MAC Viva Glam IV for this olive/cranberry party!
