Though I've been obsessed with the concept of a wrapped blouse for a while, I must confess that I've also been a little bit apprehensive about this idea. Putting my fears aside, I ventured out and purchased this Enchanting Echo Wrapped Top in Gingham ($45), which is not only gorgeous, but it's also very flattering.
Gaining a solid 15 lbs after turning 30, also meant the need to acquire a complete new wardrobe. And while I love my curves, they have also become a source of insecurities when it comes to my current fashion choices. Matching this blouse – strategically bulky in the right places – with a pair of dark skinny jeans, made me feel like my old self again. Casual and chic at the same time, this top has become my favorite piece this autumn season.
Moral of the story: don't be afraid. Experiment and play with different cuts and textures before deciding that "it's not for you." You never know!
