I love the look of this little purple dress, from the vibrant periwinkle to the lacy texture. The triangle panels create a flattering waistline, a sexy silhouette perfect for a cocktail party or night at the theatre. Hand embroidered with silver-plated chains, hand threaded crystals, and glass beads with delicate spike fringe, the Tallulah Bib Necklace is a casual silver statement piece you can dress up or down. The red lipstick, color-block stilettos, and Pyramid Studded Cuff keep this outfit from looking too sweet. Going to a luncheon? Wear nude or metallic pumps, delicate bangles, and a rosy lip color for a more demure look.
To recreate this look for curvy figures, I searched for dresses with similar silhouettes and textures. I didn’t find a plus-size dress in periwinkle, but these purple dresses are just as pretty. Dress one is a vivacious v-neck sheath with all-over lace, a matte wraparound waistband, and a silhouette similar to the periwinkle dress. Dress two features an empire waist and a flirty skirt. It comes with a printed bolero jacket if you like more coverage on your arms. Dress three is the least like the inspiration dress, but I love the 3/4 sleeves, the v-neck, and the triangle panel at the waistline. The shape and silver-flecked swirls in the fourth dress resemble the lacy inspiration dress, but the drawstring waist gives it a more casual feel.
I recently ordered this dress from Nordstrom, and I love it! It doesn’t look like the Outfit of the Day dress, but it is purple. :) I wore it to dinner Friday night with the Callie Necklace and Nancy Studs in silver.
What do you wear when you’re dressing up for a night out? Would you wear one of these purple dresses or go with a traditional LBD? Whichever you choose, add a little sparkle with Stella & Dot!
