So…….. a few weeks back, the lovely ladies in the OMCZ challenge wore outfits inspired by a fellow blogger. It was kinda the theme that I submitted (ok, it just was), and I kinda never posted it/dressed for it, etc. Basically, I was a sucky blogger and dropped the ball.

Well the time had passed, and even though I knew who I wanted to dress like and what I wanted to wear, it didn’t feel appropriate to do the post — until New Year’s Eve.

I’ve been following Sarah Anne from Big Hips Red Lips for years, and while I love the various clothing items she wears and her makeup, it’s her attitude and self confidence that really draws me in. To me, she’s sultry and sweet all at the same time. She seems like a girl who stands up for herself and knows her worth. I love that she wears body conscious styles, and that’s where I took my inspiration.


Many women shy away from any dress that shows a visible belly line — including myself! But sometimes I want to wear a body-con dress, and I have stomach that will show through, especially in pictures. I still loved wearing this dress and felt amazing in it.


This dress was a bit of a risk for buying. Evans’ carries this Scarlett and Jo dress, but it only goes up to a size US 22 (their other items have a larger size range), and I typically wear a larger size than that, but I went for it. I could definitely use it in a size up, but it fits much larger than I expected (it’s on sale now for $42! And it comes in many other colors and prints), so if you are a size US 24/26 and are okay with body conscious styles, then go for it!


Sometimes you have to take fashion risks, and I’m always happy when a blogger inspires me to step out of my comfort zone. This is my last OMCZ post (because I am not routined enough for timed posts), so check out the participating bloggers below if you want to follow the series through them!
