Listen, don't think for one second that just because you read Candace's Closet that I am some fashion expert! Uh not! And please don't think that I can afford designer brands---uh not! I don't not now or ever claim to be any of those things. I have to work with what I have--and to be honest it's not much but it's me!
I'm a single mother of three boys and I haven't shopped for anything for myself in months--sad I know. But there are just more important things in my life for me to focus on right now. I like to say this: I'm currently under construction---it sounds better than saying I'm broke right?
Well, either way its the truth! I am currently under construction and so is this website. This magazine of mine has been apart of my life for almost 10 years. I've birthed it, nurtured it, neglected it, cried over it, been frustrated with it---but it's still here!
Still, I recognize that nothing stays the same and everything must change. And there will definitely be some changes to this magazine. I'm going to be trying some new things just to see how it all works out. I hope that you stick around and leave a comment or two to let me know what you think of all the changes.
Candace's Closet will be a sporadic post that will appear every now and then just to talk about my wardrobe and how I put my outfits together for whatever I'm doing and where ever I'm going. This magazine has always been centered around plus size men and women because I am a plus size woman. This magazine has and always will be an extension of my life. Well, my life is changing and so will this magazine. We're going to go through these changes together.
I decided to go to church this Sunday, (don't ask why it's not an every Sunday thing--too long of a story) so Saturday night we prep night. I grabbed two of my favorite dresses out--one a light peach and the other a pastel pink. I've worn both several times for different occassions--church, events, weddings, and dinner. I've worn both while pregnant because their both very comfortable and easy to slip in and out. I've even nursed (breastfed) in one--quite easily actually- so these are definitely two of my go-to dresses.
I decided to wear pearls because no matter which dress I picked I felt like they would go perfectly. I have a good selection of pearl jewelry so I just picked out a few pieces that would go great and decided that I would pick the perfect pieces after I put on my dress.
Sometimes I can overdue it in the accessory department. I decided to pull out one of my flowers. I couldn't decide if I would put it in my hair or my dress. I ended up not wearing it at all even though you see me in the pictures with them on. After I took the picture I showed my son and he said the flower was too much LOL!! You gotta love boys--they will be so honest with you!
