I love hot pink, and just because you're not 25 anymore, you CAN embrace your pink. I was doing a photoshoot for my company profile and needed some professional shots, so I called up my friend Bunn Salarazon, an amazing lifestyle photog, for some help. I didn't want to wear black as usual, so after some online searching - I found a fantastic dress at Curvaceous Boutique. I definitely had to embrace my Spanx to make this dress work on my body, but I loved the color! What do you think?

  7. I'm a few years away from 30 but I love this dress. It's super cute. I was looking at it for a few weeks now but thought it looked small and wouldn't fit the girls. It's so different seeing it on a real woman than on that mannequin. I may just get it

  8. @janeen- you should! the girls fit great, my problem was my belly. after kyle (c-section) and gaining and losing, HATE my belly.

  9. hahah, I love your sense of humour too! :D I will now create a blogroll in your honour! :) Thanks for putting me on yours! Had a very funny moment today when I suddenly realized that my skirt had gotten stuck between my legs walking downtown, and upon realizing that I was basically putting it all out there I decided to just work them thighs- seeing as how I`m a thirty something with curves :) It was a fleeting moment though, and I soon had control over my skirt again, but the bounce in my step stayed with me hahahhaha. oh dear.

    I tried homemade spanx once, but couldn`t breathe or eat or any of those fun things, all I could do was use my midriff as a shelf, but you know, I have fab bags for that. hahah.

    on the the blogroll! xxx Anika

  14. The colour suits you and I love the fitting at the top but personally I think it's a bit too fitted for my tastes from the waist down. However if this was a two part outfit i would definitely buy the top part. I mean no offence of course. I am the same shape as you =).

    Been following your blog for a while. As one of those all-black wearing fat girls I tend to be afraid of colour but you have inspired me and shown me that I can wear colour and look great and classy =). So thanks....u r an inspiration
