From the Street Style: Shout Out Brooklyn (Capturing beauties at Target’s First Saturday event Shout Out Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Museum). The woman in the image is Namik Minter, and she is simply lovely. A lot of the styles in this particular photo gallery were amazing (A few were "Meh" and one or two were "Dear God, Nooooo!!!!!"... guess which ones I mean! LOL)
But back to Ms. Namik. I love love love this outfit. I took one look and KNEW that I had to recreate it.... for the plus size ladies out there!
Let's start with the dress!!! Now in the picture, I couldn't tell if she was wearing a top/skirt combo, or a dress, so I elected to call it a dress and selected the Grey Sequin Knit Dress ($54.00, Torrid)
While Namik's dress clings to accentuates her killer curves, I think that the Torrid dress is a little more forgiving... which is great for big bellied gyals like me!
I selected a super-simple comfy blazer that has been on my "to buy" list for a couple of weeks now... the Relaxed One-Button Blazer ($39.99, The Avenue).
Simply roll up to sleeves to get that casually chic 3/4 length look!
Again, I couldn't tell if Namik was wearing a super funky necklace in the picture, or if what I was seeing was a part of the dress (or shirt!), so I once again came to the conclusion it was a necklace and set off to find the perfect one for this look, with the assistance of my homegirl, Stephanie (Thank you!!!). I couldn't find an exact replica, but I believe I found a necklace that captured its uniqueness and vibrancy.
I selected the gorgeous (albeit pricey) Lauren Manoogian Hexagon Necklace ($125.00, Urban Outfitters). I really thought that this necklace matches that out of place, yet harmonious with look, as well as I thought that the colors went very well with the shoes I picked out.
I chose the Jeffrey Campbell Band Brown Combo Fiesta Woven Wedge ($109.00, Lulu's)
The shoes are only available in a 9.5 at the moment, which is a shame, because I could really use those shoes in my life! LOL
