I don’t blog about school too much, but I am graduating from FIDM next month and I am lost as to what to wear. You may be wondering “you went to fashion school…why don’t you know what to wear?” I am getting my degree in Beauty, so I have always been slightly intimidated by fashion- even more so because I am plus sized. I only have about 3 weeks until graduation, so I am slightly freaking out.
What I’m Looking for:
I want to look summery, fashionable, and figure-conscious. My favorite color is orange right now, so I’d love to incorporate that into my outfit. We have to wear long(ish) black caps and gowns that are so disgusting, but at least we get to decorate them. I want a dress that is about knee-length, but not a maxi dress because I don’t really want it to show awkwardly under the gown. I decided to buy my graduation dress from ASOS because they provide fashionable pieces at decent prices.
I also wore an ASOS dress to my high school graduation, nearly two years ago, and I loved it. Did your HS make you wear white/cream dresses under your white gowns too? So not flattering! I also picked out a cute outfit for an after party that I was invited to. Some awesome jeans with a fitted shirt and the cutest bomber hat that I just ordered from http://www.furhatworld.com/aviator-bomber-hats-c-42_65.html
I love this dress because it’s orange of course. I like the length and silhouette. I feel like I can wear this dressed up or down, which I like.
I love the length, and the color. It’s not orange, but I think it would look great with an orange lip since blue and orange are complementary colors! The yellow color is cheaper, but I’ve never worn a yellow dress so it would make me kind of nervous!
I’m including this because I may get it for events and such, because it is cheap and adorable. Why must it only come in black?!
I think I need this dress. I am only worried about the neckline, because as a large-chested girl, sometimes higher necklines make my boobs look weird. I think I may add it to my wish list anyway just because it is so cute for spring and summer.
I don’t know how this dress would look on me, so I’m worried. Is it too casual because of the jersey? I’ve never had a peplum dress so I’m worried it will make me look larger as well. The color is cute also.
To be honest, I think I may need to order all of these dresses, because I need more dresses for my post-graduation New York Beauty Study Tour with FIDM. But, I would love to get your opinions on these dresses- and please give me any accessory or shoe (pref. wedges or flats) recommendations!
Also, post what you would wear! I think that would be fun 🙂
