The Talk of the TOWN - Plus Size Glamour!

By SKORCH Blogger Alica Verne

With Christmas just around the corner you know there's bound to be a party somewhere! So
why not pull out all the stops and show them what you're really made of by, of COURSE,
unleashing your inner diva (! With this Classic Hollywood Diva inspired ensemble
how can you go wrong?! You'll be irresistible to anyone that crosses your path in this
vintage-inspired look starting with the fabulous stretch satin dress by B&LU and the faux
fur cape by Kudos. To add a POP of color: check out the sexy shoes by the one and only
Carlos Santana (how lucky is his wife?!) and cute lace heart bag by Suzy Smith. The black

jewelry really makes a bold statement, bringing the look together nicely especially the

necklace by Oasis. Finishing with the classic bold lip, winged-tip liner, and being coiffed

to perfection (topped off with the headpiece by Mod Cloth) will put the paparazzi in a

frenzy! So before you head out for the night make sure you practice your red carpet pose, ladies!

*Also check the other shoes I picked for this outfit. Decisions! A diva can NEVER have

enough shoes! ;)
