When Zara had their end of year sale I went a little crazy.  I usually only shop at Zara UNTIL they have their semi-annual and annual sales. I was so happy with my order that I placed a second order!  I love Zara’s clothes I just hate paying full price for them.

Of course this dress was an absolute must for me because of the silhouette, the color and the length.  I also wanted it because it’s the perfect “throw on” dress for work.  Y’all know those “throw on” dresses save the day when you are running late or just don’t feel like putting together an entire outfit.

My closet is full of “throw on” dresses and I always get the most compliments when I wear them.  My response is always the same “Thank you! I just threw this on”. LOL.



  1. I LOVE this outfit on you! Looks great! You’re blog here is such an inspiration for how to dress curves while looking amazing and not frumpy. I’m so glad you have kept up this amazing fashion blog. I’m about to start a big new position in my career and I’ve saved so many of your outfit ideas for shopping inspiration. no more hiding in big baggy clothes for me. I’m fairly new to your blog (I found you from Pinterest) and just wanted to stop by and let you know you’re readers appreciate your posts! ? Oh, and your hair is perfection! My curls type is very similar but not nearly so well behaved. Keep up the great work!

    • My apologies! I should have asked if it was ok to share your photo on my IG before I posted it. I hope I didn’t scare you away.

  5. I love this look from head to toe. Zara is my absolute favorite. I’m like you I go crazy when they have their sales. But when I’m feeling myself I admit I will pay full price. It’s about 5 items in my cart right now but I’m fighting the urge to hit purchase.
