Curves + Curtseys - Plus-Size Fashion Featuring SWAK Designs and a Makeup Look, Part II!

Welcome to part II of my SWAK Designs plus-size fashion collaboration! If you missed my first post, I shared a dreamy, romantic look featuring a soft and comfy aqua cold shoulder top paired with charcoal jeggings and a pair of buckle booties to tie everything together. Check it out here if you missed it!

 For my second look, I wanted something a little more bold and fun. This outfit would be great for a night out, a concert or anywhere you want to look fabulous! I was going for an urban, rocker-chic vibe. The chiffon top I'm wearing is sophisticated, chic and versatile. It's sheer, so I'm wearing a simple black cami underneath. If you're a little more daring, this would look amazing with a harness bra like this one. This chiffon blouse is different from others that I've seen. It features a unique, oversize collar that gives it some more character and gorgeous, gold buttons. It also has sleeve buttons to hold them up if you want. The sleeves hit just below my elbows. If they aren't buttoned up it gives me a more relaxed and carefree look. There's also a functional front pocket. I love these kinds of tops because you can dress them up or down. I'm wearing the same style jeggings as I wore in my last post, but in a pretty red shade.

I paired this look with some bold, gold jewelry, some black suede boot-wedges, some funky, tortoise shell round sunglasses and a black, wide-brim fedora to bring everything together.

JEWELRY: H&M

HAT: Target

SHOES: Target

SUNGLASSES: I purchased my sunglasses at a swapmeet here in Los Angeles, but these from Romwe are almost identical - Romwe


I got both items in a 2X and the blouse fits me a little snug around my tummy. Keep in mind that chiffon usually doesn't stretch, so if you want it more flowy then size up. Luckily it looks good fitted as well. This type of fabric tends to wrinkle easily, so keep that in mind too. The jeggings fit me well, but wearing them throughout the day tends to loosen them up around my waist a bit. They fit wonderfully on my legs, though!

Here is the eye makeup I put together to go with this look. I wanted it to be extra smokey, sultry and sparkly.


I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean all over my top and bottom lids, blended Too Faced's eyeshadow in Nudie in my crease, applied Too Faced's eyeshadow in Heaven on my brow bone, applied Sugarpill's eyeshadow in Bulletproof on my crease and inner and outer lids, Sugarpill's loose eyeshadow in Goldilux on the center of my top and bottom lids top it off with Sephora's glitter liner in Gold. I'm wearing Faux Lashes in Vixen.
