Accessories: Part Dos

Apart from shoes, the other things I find hard to resist are costume jewelry. Not so much a fan of gold, or diamonds (but if one is slipped on my finger, I wont be able to say no). I'm not a snob when it comes to these. In fact, I don't mind cheap jewelry. Again, it all depends on how well you carry it off. It should complement, not make you look like a Christmas tree.

Before you decide on wearing any accessories, take a look at the clothes you are wearing or intending to wear. See if you even need accessorizing. Remember, accessorizing means it needs to complement or complete the look you want to pull off. With the wrong items, a very pretty dress can look horrible. But when you wear it right, a gunny sack can look avant garde. Oh, maybe avoid gunny sack all together please...

How to know when you need accessories? Simple. If the clothes you wear looks empty and plain, and if it shouts BORING! then please by all means wear something additional. For big girls especially, avoid chunky necklaces. Those big beads like Wilma Flinstones are a NO NO. No matter how plain your clothes are, don't wear big huge mother pearls or beads. The first thing you will lose is your neck. Being heavy set, often our neck becomes short. If you are one of those lucky big girls with long necks, then that's different. Wear wide flat necklaces, if the clothes fit or it has an open neckline.

Here are some options you can consider:

Wear these with plain clothes. Heavy designs, plus chunky necklaces will definitely make you look even bigger. Once you do wear big necklaces, keep your earrings simple. Dangling earrings will just over-power the clothes. Studs or small hoops, or even short dangles (not more than an inch or so) are still acceptable.

And please don't tie it too close to the neck. Let it hang loose a bit. But don't drape it on your already big boobs. Which I'm sure majority of us big girls will have. Why avoid draping? You certainly do not want eyes focusing on your breast. It should be the chest, and it should be because your outfit looks good. Now, I know some will say, "when you have it, flaunt it". Flaunt it tastefully! When you dress up, the attention on you should be because you ooze of confidence, not because you look desperate. Excuse the crudeness.

Anyway, if you have any thoughts about this, please do share. In fact, if you have photos of yourself looking hawt with the right accessories, show it here. Sometimes, I can be wrong. But when I am right, I love seeing the result.

Will share more soon. Good luck and Cheers.

P/s: Yes, I also sell those necklaces above.
