Plus-Size Style: Midi Sweater Dress

I had this all ready to go for my weekly 'Fatshion Friday' post, but life has a funny way of taking over sometimes. Alas, here is a bonus style post for the week (aka last week's post), and I will certainly be on schedule to post this week's Fatshion Friday feature!

I am not the biggest fan of bodycon dresses, and you probably won't catch me in one often. Honestly, I couldn't even tell you the last time I wore one, but that's just my personal preference. I've never been the type to enjoy slipping on Spanx daily (I know some women who do, and good for them!). Personally, I just feel more comfortable in a fuller A-Line skirt than in a pencil skirt. However, I am trying to experiment by trying out new styles and trends to diversify my wardrobe.

I first saw this dress modelled by the gorgeous Ashley Graham in Addition Elle stores across the province. Ashley looked so amazing in the dress, I just knew that I had to have it. I wanted to feel that confidence that she radiated on those billboards.

I slipped on the dress and was practically in love. However, I did slightly uncomfortable in my typical size, so I made it my mission to travel across town to pick up the next size. I'm so glad I did, because now I don't have to worry about slipping on the Spanx before going out and I rather enjoy the slightly relaxed (but not baggy) fit.

Midi-dresses are perfect for the fall because you don't have to show off too much leg (it's cold out there!) but you still get to wear a dress. How perfect is that? I'm so pleased that sweater dresses are in this season, and they continue to pop up in recent advertisements and stores. I especially love the grey henley colour and light material of this dress, it makes it so versatile. You could seriously dress up or dress down this dress in so many ways. I can't wait to try styling it a bit differently next time!

I chose to accessorize minimally with jewelry and focused on larger accents such as my gorgeous chunky gold heels and this adorable mint purse I snagged from Jessica Biffi at Big Deal Toronto (post coming soon!)
