My Outfit: Neon Tribal

I usually hate shopping online.  I like to see things in person before I buy them because I'm really into how things fit and feel.  It's one of the many reasons why I prefer to shop locally.  But, I am starting to really like the online store, Nasty Gal.  I purchased 2 dresses off of Nasty Gal recently and while one I loved immediately, I wasn't completely sold on this yellow dress upon first try on.

I realized it was supposed to be a super loose fit dress.  That was actually part of the initial appeal for me since it has been scorching hot lately (a girl needs some breeze).  But when I first put it on I felt a little like it made me look like I was pregnant.  But, the longer I had it on and the second I accessorized it with  my tribal looking necklace, I realized it was too funky to pass up.

The citrus yellow color is definitely what sold me on the dress.  And it happens to look amazing with my hot pink lipstick which I am obsessed with lately...

I actually love shopping online. There are just so many more options for great plus-size clothes online rather than in stores. I love City Chic, Eshakti and (oddly enough) Macy's. You look lovely in your new dress - I especially love it with the pink lips :)

I love that dress! I used to be afraid of online shopping, but now the only thing I won't buy online is pants. Your necklace is amazing as well.
