For a Formal Fundraiser
Dear Fashionista411: I have a formal evening fundraiser to attend; many of the attendees will be clergy people. My problem is what to wear — I am fat! Size 18 bottom! Have any ideas?
Fashionista411: First, don’t start by criticizing your looks, without confidence in yourself you will never feel good no matter what you put on. You can look simply gorgeous no matter what size you are. A great look I would suggest for your shape is keeping the bottom in a darker color and drawing the attention to your top with a detailed top.
The trendy look out now is Black and white, you can do a higher waist black skirt to accentuate your waist line, and add a white ruffle blouse. If you don’t feel comfortable in a skirt look for a dress in deep jewel tones, like purples, royal blues, and emerald greens, with detailed neck and waist lines to draw the attention up.
Your Fashionista 411, Dawn
