Warm & Cool.

by Jamila Pierre

When I say warm and cool i'm not talking about the mood-swings of mother nature as of late, i'm talking about the pairing of gold and pewter. There is just something about the combination that excites me and makes me feel complete.  Pewter is my favorite type of metallic hue...ever...

The way it can lean on the dirty silver grey side or the dirty silver lavenderish- purple side, makes this metallic incredible unique and versatile. Just like it's second cousin twice removed, copper.

I think I may also be infatuated with pewter because it's dirty....in a good way....like me....OK, that may be a little too much info. Pairing warm tones and cool tones isn't typical by any means, but it makes for an unexpected pop of interest to any outfit. So all in all i'm here for it.


I acquired this dress when I went to a blogger "Shop & Swap" last year, that's when I first met some of these fabulous bloggers in the curvy-girl community. 

Let me tell you, I wasn't playin', I got there a good half hour prior to the start of the event because I am a ruthless shopper. I would be damned if I would've missed out on a glorious piece due to my tardiness. 

When I saw this dress, from Shainna of A thick Girls Closet, I lunged at it and immediately tried it on. 


I thought this was the most interesting little dress I've seen in a long time, it has two zippers, one on the front and one on the back, and has the capability of being zipped all the way up or all the way down. It's completely adjustable for whatever mood you happen to be in that day and it's the perfect color (refer to the beginning of this post). It posses my favorite silhouette, it has a drawstring that helps to accentuate the waist, and the exposed zippers make for an edgy touch that I am undoubtedly a sucker for.

Not to mention how ridiculously comfortable this dress is but....it's ridiculously comfortable.
