ACCESSORIES, TRY ON HAUL

Mini Try -0n Haul: Accessories from Forever Trendy

Hey guys, im back again with another haul but this time round, a mini one. Let’s talk about accessories today. You don’t need loads of accessories to be stylish. Agree or disagree? Comment below!

One item that will help complete your look to the best is using accessories. Statement accessories are your bestie when it comes to dressing any plus sized body. Hats and bags are very amazing accessories which fit this bill. They can magically elevate your style in such an effortless way.

Who doesn’t want to look good! I came across these statement accessories at Forever Trendy and thought why not share them with you:

Accessory 1: Beret Hat

My first accessory, is this black beret hat. I’ve never had much luck in finding great hats. What i find out there is either too expensive, the quality is not that amazing or just doesn’t fit me really good.

There is something feminine about beret hats. I love the silver studded details on this particular one. I think they make it look edgy without being over the top.

Forever Trendy has berets in some seriously amazing colors.

The material is really soft to the touch glides easily when you wear it. This hat instantly transforms your outfit from basic to fab to be precise.

Style fact: The beret hat is such an icon in the French Fashion. Now you know what gift to give your French friends in case you have any lol.

Accessory 2. Floppy Straw Hat

Next is this floppy straw hat. I love the fit. It’s one hat which you don’t need to be worried about falling off your head when the wind blows. As long as you get the right size you are good to go.

However it can be abit limiting if you are rocking a bulky hairstyle like chunky braids or weaves. It just might not fit really well but to counter this, check out the other amazing options from this store.

What i love about this particular straw hat is that its large enough to protect one from the sun. For size details, it’s actually a 57cm.

This accessory would be a perfect accompaniment to the beach. On a sunny day, it would also pair very well with a cute floral dress for that subtle look.

Accessory 3: Round rattan straw Bag

The last but not least is this straw bag. I think this is one accessory you might love. The fact that its neutral means you can perfectly pair it with a range of outfits. It’s stylish, fun and timeless just to say the least.

Small but mighty, i must say am absolutely smitten by the round structure. You can throw in all your go – to easy to reach stuff when going out and about. How convenient!

Style tip: You can wrap a colorful scarf around the handle of your straw bag to add some sass. Just play around with different textures based on what you are wearing.

Its amazing how this straw bag has brightened this black monochromatic outfit. Totally love the look.

Oh.. still looks good when you combine the straw bag and hat together.

Did i get value for money? I would say yes! Definitely yeees because the materials are so high quality and these are designs that you don’t see all over.

Try on Haul: Bela B Styles

Hello, hello! Yet another bright day and i’m absolutely grateful for this far. Hope you are doing great wherever you are reading this from.

Today i’m delighted to do my very first try on haul from Bela B Styles. I really wanted to do this last week but i had to travel to upcountry for a very special function that i couldn’t afford to miss. It’s all about dresses today yeepy! Let dive right below:

  1. White polkadress

I like the way it flows freely on my body. It’s not too clingy. Just a perfect fit for me. I’m really fascinated by the polka dots and vibe going on at the bottom part. In terms of height, i think it would have looked much better if it was abit short. Any-WHO i’m still determined to persevere hahaha! I figured out i have very few polkadresses so this was a win.

2. Colorful Chic dress

Colors are so divine. I must say the drape is so nice. The design is so chic. I love the way it clings at the waist area then flows downwards. I wore it to upcountry and it was super comfy. The weather there is hot and humid so this was the ‘it’ dress!

3. Floral Edgy Dress

I normally don’t buy similar designs but this one was absolutely irresistible. Its similar to the Chic colorful dress. I find the patterns so edgy. The colors are so soft and tasty. I wasted no time with this dress. I rocked it to upcountry too. Super comfy is the overall verdict.

4. Striped Elegant dress

The fit is so perfect. Height is to my liking. I love the elegant design. Looks so chic as well. The v neck balances out my ensemble. Doesn’t pull up when you walk like some dresses I’ve bought before. A gem in the closet.

5. Stretchy Red dress

I’m happy to say im in love with it’s amazing comfort. Red is one of the lovely colors i adore. The material is thick and stretches so well. I like the way the white details neutralise the whole look.

6. Pleated Stylish dress

I never knew that i could rock this particular design but the moment i tried this one on, i knew its a have. This one swept me off my feet. The color palette on the pleats is so interesting. Comfort is out of this world. I however feel it looks much better with a belt.

That’s it for today! I’m excited with the dresses and the verdict for all is a win. As a plus sized woman i’m definitely very satisfied. However what i’d advice someone planning to shop online for these specific pieces, to consider visiting the store IF possible (At times it’s not practical) for a better experience because i noticed the dress fittings vary depending on the design.

For those who don’t know Bela B styles, its one of the best plus size stores in Nairobi. It’s definitely worth a visit. As always thanks for stopping by!
