I’m a curvy girl and I’ve grown to appreciate my angles over the years. So when it comes to finding clothes that fit me I know which cuts and fabrics work for my shape. But every now and then I come across the perfect top, dress, skirt or even a blazer or dowdy cardigan that just won’t fit the way I want! The solution to this dilemma is what I call my safety pin secret. I have them in ALL sizes imaginable and I use them to add ruching to just about anything that needs a little adjusting. Ideally one large saftey pin does the trick, but for the most part two large safety pins on each side work best. Each pin should be pushed through 2-3 times (makes a huge difference!).
On dresses that don’t flow with my curves I gather the hem only at the sides and pin. And since I LOVE the super flattering 3/4 sleeve, the same goes with just about any top and blazer (must be knit or thin). It’s not always easy to get it right but when you do it’s a life saver!!

Looking for an affordable, sexy evening dress can sometimes be a daunting task no matter what size you are especially one that can be worn more than once! Well,
While the boho trend can be a tricky style to nail because it straddles the messy and overly sloppy look, the key is moderation. There’s no need to wear it from head to toe (and for that matter there’s no need to wear any trend from head to toe). Below are a few tips:
A favorite way to add a little boho to your everyday look is a big, slouchy hobo bag There are a variety of hobo bags to choose from without breaking the bank.
Scarves provide a simple and bold way to give an outfit that unstructured yet classy vibe. There are a ton of lightweight scarves that are perfect for the warmer weather.
A maxi dress is an excellent and comfy option to get the boho look – particularly when paired with a blazer or leather jacket. The dress provides the boho part, and the jacket pulls it all together.
Jewelry is the easiest and most fool proof way to add a little boho to your style. Whether it’s long beaded chains, bangles or a pair of chandelier earrings you can’t go wrong. Pair them with a white shirt to the office or with a tee during the day.
When it comes to shoes, the possibilities are endless. A pair of slouchy boots, wedge heels, or braided sandals immediately come to mind.
So, whether your style is classic, modern, preppy or just straight up trendy, why not add a little boho to your look?
