Featured Image-4looks-sequins-skirt

One of my favorite items in my closet is a sequins skirt from Forever21+. I really wish I could say I didn’t love Forever 21+, since they really give no advert love to the curvy community, but I do.  Because this sequins skirt is such a “stand out” garment I’ve only worn it twice. I thought I would show you guys how to style one piece in several different ways. I confess, I am that girl you talk about because she’s rocking the same pair of jeans to every event. I am a creature of habit. I digress.





All black is really my comfort zone, as is to many curvy women. I feel like I don’t have to hold the mid section in as much … even though I probably should, LOL. The only item I am wearing not Forever21 are my shoes from Torrid. This blouse I absolutely love. That is after I plucked off the pearls and glitter ish that was on the bust area. So unnecessary. But I can switch the skirt out for some slacks and have a perfect 9to5 look. 

I was slightly surprised when I was able to fit this shirt because it’s a large from the skinny chick section of Forever21. I did slice it up a bit to give the shoulder action I needed.

I can’t remember the last time I brought BRIGHT BLUE anything. I mean I named my blog GorgeousInGrey.com for a reason. Not only is my hair grey but so is the majority of my closet. I originally brought the shirt to pair with my leopard shoes but in the end I’ve worn it quite a few times with my skinnies and my short shorts (just I have them too). 

Loving my new fav Hendrix tee which I got from H&M that I also sliced! And I brought these Alice + Oliva heels from Payless (at least 3 years ago) and NEVER worn them outside of my home. The BF hates when I do that but hey… it’s a perfect photo shoot heel.

You can check out the rest of the shoot over on my facebook page. XOXO

    OH EM GEE Ty!! I die for this post! You look AMAZING!! I know you tend to err more on the editorial side of things here at Gorgeous In Grey, but it is so lovely to see pictures of you on here looking fabulous. I love your sequins skirt! Each of your looks are great, but as a lover of color, I’m surprised that your all black look stole my heart :-).

    You better work! I love this skirt. My favorite look is the one with the Hendrix t-shirt. Love the dichotomy of the sequins & a t-shirt. Please do more posts of your outfits! Love it. xo

    It’s a shame you don’t wear blue more often! That shirt is absolutely stunning on you!!! It looks comfy too. I think more blue for the Gorgeous in Gray wardrobe is a must!! – Katy

      Thanks Katy – I actually do like it. I think my next outfit post might be “1 Blue Shirt + 3 looks” because I have worn it with several pieces.

      Yes having a BF photographer works out well! hee hee!

    When I found this blog I was elated, because I love the color grey too! That’s definitely a go-to color for me because you can dress it up or down. It’s the perfect color because you can wear it any time of the year. My go-to item is probably my cardigan collection. I LOVE them and they’re so cute. I just can’t help myself! More cardigans will definitely be in my closet since fall has returned!
