Dress from Kiyonna.com
So so excited to introduce a new brand to my readers! Kiyonna is a fantastic brand that was created for the sophisticated plus size woman. They offer everything from gowns to casual separates. Each piece has a distinct air of class and ease of style, and everything is made in the USA! I am so excited to be partnering with Kiyonna to share a piece from their collection monthly. You can learn more about Kiyonna’s story here.
I selected this dress because I love a good style challenge, this is a silhouette that I have not worn a lot AND this is a color that I LOVE. On the website, this dress looks like a dusty rose color more brown than pink. But in person this dress is definitely pink, I would call it a mauve. Which is lovely on pale yellow haired people like myself. 🙂
I followed the size chart and ordered a 1x, I felt that this was a perfect fit. The fabric had some stretch which I loved and was breathable. My favorite part of this dress was the lace detail on the left hip, this was adjustable and added some extra drama to a classic look. The sheath shape of this dress played up my curves, but the draping hid some lumps and bumps.
I chose to style this dress for a classic cocktail party look. Strappy heels, a clutch and some gold jewelry. This dress could easily go to work, with some sensible pumps and simple jewelry. You could even throw on a cropped blazer if you wanted!
You know that I usually reach for edgier pieces, and I feel that this color and fit is a great option to add to my closet for summer. The lace up detail adds drama and the unusual color really lightens up my wardrobe of black and white pieces. 🙂
