Shelbee was one of the first bloggers I befriended when I started on this blogging journey. I maintain that Shelbee is one of the hardest working bloggers on the net. Not only is she a blogger, but she is a stay at home mother to her two cute little boys in Watertown, New York. With everything on her plate, she is always making boss moves and I’m just constantly in awe of Shelbee’s stamina and perseverance. Shelbee also the kindest person ever, she took this newbie fashion blogger under her wing and helped me even when she really didn’t know me. So, it was no question that I would remix Shelbee’s outfit this time around.
I want to to thank her for giving me permission to repost photos from her blog.
Choosing what outfit I would pick was super hard! There are just so many fantastic outfits that Shelbee has won. However, I couldn’t deny instantly loving this outfit the moment I saw it.
In the original post, Shelbee chooses a plus size cognac colored velvet skater dress from Dresslily. Unfortunately, that dress is sold out, so I scrambled to find an alternative. Thankfully, Rosewholesale had this gorgeous alternative in Olive Green. I think Olive Green is that one universal color that can be worn by everyone no matter their skin tone
Next is this is pretty samba sash belt from Modcloth. I usually don’t shop at ModCloth, but I just adored this belt and it really resembles the belt Shelbee wore in the original post. Unfortunately, the color of the original belt’s color didn’t really match what I was going for.
Over the dress, I paired up this beautiful fur bordered poncho that I found on eBay. It’s so pretty and the price is practically a steal. Of course, there are the accessories such as the opaque plus size tights, the gold tone stainless watch, and this gorgeous gold necklace from Nordstroms.
And finally, my favorite part of this outfit was these fabulous olive green ankle boots. I know that Shelbee wore simple flat work boots in the original photos. However, I couldn’t resist adding this beautiful olive combat high heeled ankle boots. I wish I could wear heels, just to strut around in these beautiful boots.
