COLORS & COLLARS


If you know me, you would know this.
But for those of you who don't know me so well, I'll tell you.

My favorite type of clothes are dresses for almost any season.
Clothes should be styled a certain way depending on the kind of body type you have, along with your personal taste in fashion.

I have not only heard from others, but think for myself that I look better in dresses rather than pants because of my body shape. Wearing pants or leggings emphasize more on the shape of my thick lower body, but wearing dresses lessen the emphasis and draw less attention to the heaviness of my lower body.

This is just the first one but you will see a lot more dresses being featured on myself rather than pants/leggings.



This was my outfit this past Sunday.
Sunday tends to be the one day out of the week that I dress "up" for church.



This dress is really easy to dress "up" or "down."

Wearing a nude colored wedges or heels like shown above would allow me to dress it "up," while wearing a simple flat sandals in the neutral color zone (i.e., gold/nude) or wearing classic red Toms would allow me to dress it "down."


This dress is a collared, sleeveless dress with an elastic on the waist.
It has buttons on the top portion of the dress, and it has pockets on both sides of the chest area.

It's a nude colored dress with small, colorful flower prints on it.
Not only is this dress perfect for the Summer for its brightness and its sleeveless style, the floral print makes it even more perfect for the Summer.

Because it's not a spaghetti strap, it's easy for people like me to wear it and feel comfortable wearing it.


Although not featured in these photos, this dress also goes well with cardigans.
I tend to match it up with either a navy blue cardigan, a bright blueish cardigan and sometimes even black.

This dress is more versatile than you think, which is a huge plus in pairing it up with different types of cardigans and shoes.

This dress was purchased at a random Korean-owned clothing shop that used to be inside the Vermont Galleria plaza in Koreatown, Los Angeles. That clothing store does not exist anymore, but the lady said this dress is from Korea.




My typical choice of shoes for this dress when dressing it "up" is my nude colored semi-wedge peep-toe sandals from Unlisted.
The yellowish nude color goes well with the nude color of the dress, and the simple look of the semi-wedge sandals help the dress to be eye-catching rather than there being an emphasis on the shoes.
Because of the platform and it being a semi-wedge sandal, it's a lot more comfortable for the feet rather than stiletto heels as well.



I love dresses.
Don't you?
