Purple/blue crinkle top flatters curvy figures

Margaret purple floral top and skirtMargaret Kumma talks about clothes she loves from her own closet that flatter her curvy shape:

What I love about this blouse are the colors, the crinkle fabric, the shape, and the pleated front and 28″ length.  I also love that it’s very roomy! I’m fairly sure my shape is Apple because I seem to be pretty much round!  The Crinkle Georgette Blouse color is listed as Blue Multi-Floral, but really it’s a sort of rose background with multi-colored flowers, which are mostly blue, and there are purple and white as well. The fabric is 100% polyester, the brand is Only Necessities, purchased from Woman Within at www.womanwithin.com  (just a side note: they have very pretty clothes for plus-sized women, which is nice. It can be hard for us large women to find nice, feminine clothes, especially finding just the right size.  Their clothes are very roomy.  They have casual clothes as well.) 

The Crinkle Skirt is Navy Blue and has gold-tone buttons down the front.  It has a “Blair” tag, and I found this gem at Goodwill about 4 years ago. I’m really happy with this skirt! I’m not sure what the fabric is, but it feels like a polyester/cotton blend.  It’s very lightweight and nice for this hot time of year!  I love the color, as it looks like it will match with any blouse in my closet.

 The boots are black with a buckle on the outside and a zipper on the inside, and are brand name Nickel. I purchased these about 4 years ago.  If I remember right, I found these at Famous Footwear. I love the color and fit of these boots.  I also love the heel because it’s high enough to look nice but is still easy to walk in.  And, since they’re black, they go with a nice skirt or jeans.  They are comfortable enough to wear all day long.

The cross necklace is called:  Faithful Amber Cross Brass Polish Fashion Necklace. The stone in the center has an Amber hue, and the other stones are clear like diamonds.  The cross itself is almost black. It’s brass, and the stones look like cubic zirconium. I don’t know the brand, but I purchased it through Amazon because I wanted a new cross necklace. I was completely surprised at how beautiful this cross is!  The picture doesn’t do it justice.  I love the length of the chain and the size of the cross. I also love how lightweight it is.  The stones are very pretty and they sparkle like diamonds!

 The earrings are Gothic Cross earrings in yellow gold.  The brand is GirlPROPS. I purchased this from Amazon a couple years ago, and they still look nice. I’m partial to yellow gold, and love how durable they are, too.  They still look brand-new, and I’ve worn these a lot!  They are light, although they do start to feel a little heavy if worn all day, but certainly can be worn for most of the day or for a night out on the town.

Thanks to Margaret for sharing!
