Rocking the VBO

'Rocking the VBO' (Visible Belly Outline) is a phrase I only learnt recently from gorgeous Gabifresh but I just love it. There were times when I would absolutely no way have worn anything that was fitted enough to show my tum but my journey to body acceptance seems to have taken a boost over the last few months and I've realised that I actually think some of the parts of me I hated before are really cute like my tummy outline! You can imagine how pleased I was then, when this beautiful bodycon dress from The Curve arrived on my doorstep as it was the perfect piece to wear to solidify and make public my acceptance of my stomach chub.

This is the Triangle Cut Out Pencil Dress and it's also available in a lovely bright crimson red. It's a real marvel of a dress, when you see it in person you notice how wonderfully it has been designed and engineered with lots of panels and the cute little cap sleeves. The super sexy cut out is a wonderful little feature and it's curve hugging style make this a real jaw dropper of a dress. One of the things that I love the most about this piece is how thick the fabric is, it's like a thick scuba fabric that has some stretch but it also sturdy so it molds to your shape and helps define and refine it at the same time. This is one of those dresses that is an investment piece as it will never go out of style and could be accessorised for so many occasions be it party time, for something formal or you could even do dressed down sexy by adding a duster coat, scarf and hat and some chunky boots.

I decided emphasise my waist here with a lovely belt from ASOS which is sadly now sold out, but this gemstoney one they have on sale right now would make an amazing substitute! I grabbed my new platform boots which are amazingly comfortable and to keep my warm I threw on this lovely tinsel shrug - seriously, it is very warm because it's completely synthetic but I couldn't resist the sparkle and it's currently only £10 on sale! Last but not least I grabbed this cute little velvety clutch which was a gift from Simply Be, but sadly I can't find on their website.
