Addition Elle has a gorgeous selection of quality bras and has qualified staff to help you find the right fit. That’s ultimately the secret, the right fit! This month they are featuring their bra fitting services with special promotions from March 17-22 2016. This is not to be missed.
To be honest, I have never been a lover of lingerie. Particularly because my bras are usually too “functional” to be pretty. You know what though? I no longer need to feel that way. Their selection (size and fit!!) are wonderful and completely accommodating to all women who need more support. I fell in love a few times with their racy designs, particularly those from the Ashley Graham line (I mean, who doesn’t love Ashley Graham). The new Sheer Desire set is also to die for; a lightweight mesh that is both sexy and practical.
I want to say a huge THANK YOU to my amazing models Melissa, Meeka and Emily who support me and trust my styling skills! They always do a fabulous job! Love you ladies xoxox!
Now back to what is really important… the clothes! I know… there is a lot of black. But what I can I say, I love black! It’s so flattering, timeless and versatile. I tried to add a lot of metallic notes to lift the outfits. From the metallic dress, to rhinestones, sequin and jewelry, it all adds to the sparkle and glam that is Holiday dressing. As you can see, I also love layering with a cardigan or jacket. It adds a layer of warmth and helps to hide the problem areas, like your arms or your backside. If dresses aren’t your thing, you can opt to wear long and loose trouser. The flowy material gives off the illusion of a long dress and lifts the entire look.
This is my total style crush, Emmi Snicker of Stockholm. I fell hard for her street style photos when I Googled “plus-size fashion blogger”. That’s how we met! I love this beauty’s style and how she rocks her curves, so I ask her a few questions.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. My name is Emmi Snicker and I’m currently living in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, with my husband. I’m a 23 year old blogger and organic makeup artist. I also run a small company through my blog, besides my full-time office job. Otherwise I love to travel, watch documentaries and hang out with my family and friends!
What’s your passion for fashion?My interest for fashion and beauty started at an early age – I remember I had a small collection of eye shadows (blue, pink and silver) for school discos in the late 90s. I also loved girl bands, especially their makeup and clothes. Growing up, my mother had her own hair salon where I spent a few hours every day after school. I would wait for her to finish up, while I painted and played with hair accessories and looked through her look books. Since then, my interest in fashion and beauty has developed a lot. I hope to find a full time career in the fashion and beauty industry in the future!
What XLusive tip can you share? My style tips for a chic style is to invest in basic clothing – oh, I know it’s so boring and you’ve heard this tip a million times before – but you need to build a small base to work with. Once you have your basics, you can then add pieces with that bit of “extra” and voliá, you can now create hundreds of combinations with all your pieces!
