Little Black Dress

Dress | Shape-wearBoots(Similar with heel) (Similar without heel)| Bag | Sunglasses

Im my last post on Curls and Contours, I shared this look with a fabulous jacket. I wanted to share this look again for a couple of reasons. 1) I have a few more thoughts on this look. 2) Its just to good not to share again. 🙂

I am always up for trying new things in my wardrobe, this dress is a product of that. I NEVER wear tight stuff, I hate layering and I hate tight shit on my body(exception leggings obvi). So for me to get this dress was miles outside of my comfort zone, because there is literally no where for you to hide in something this tight. Admittedly I have worn this dress before, to a party(my friend had to convince me to leave the long cardigan home) and then for a blog feature where I was able to hide under a fabulous coat. And now for this little post. I am a big believer in getting out of your comfort zone, I think one of the best ways to experience growth is to get a little uncomfortable.

When I stepped out of my closet in this my husband was like “Who are you and what have you done with my wife?” HA. This to me meant a couple of things. First of all, Spanx work (really well) and second I need to push myself more often. This isn’t a blog post where I am going to tell you the merits of wearing tight figure hugging dresses, you are either into that. Or you aren’t. This is a blog post telling you to get out of your own way, and get out of your comfort zone. Whether that is in fashion, or trying something new.
