Statement Sleeves

dc plus size style

The real winners of this look are, by far, the embellished, bell-shaped statement sleeves.

Did I mention that these bad boys are long? Like cover-the-whole-hand long? Well, they are. I've always liked short/mini dresses with long sleeves. You're covered but still bringing some pizzazz with the legs. Or in my case, legs and shoulders. *shimmies* This dress will definitely have you feeling yourself just a bit a lot. And there's nothing wrong with that.

There was no need to wear any statement accessories to compete with the embellished sleeves so I went the simple route with black ankle strap heels and a set of red with gold trim vintage earrings. Oh, and can't forget about the dark red lip. Fin.
