BykStyle | Glam on a Budget

Written by: Kiki

Aloha Fabbies,

As most plus size divas on the move, you always have to have options when it comes to fashion.  You never know when you will get an invite for an impromptu business meeting over drinks or a networking event with your girlfriends. Whatever the event may be, you have to be ready to arrive, show out and SLAY!


And next to dressing for success, the next best thing is dressing for success ON A BUDGET! **insert screams.** Now finding affordable workwear and happy hour digs has become a bit easier with thrifting, vlogs and fabulous style blog posts from your favorite dynamic duo( shameless plug??? ……of course!) but what about when you need to get glammed up? Headed to a Fundraising gala? to the theater to catch a show, or anniversary weekend and you trying to pull out the big guns *bang, bang.* Then this may be the perfect look for you..




Unfortunately, I do not get the option to get glammed up very often, but when I saw this gold sequined maxi skirt from Lane Bryant, I was in love! and the fact it was on sale for $15!! our relationship was meant to be.

To funk up this glamazon creation, I decided to pair it with a graphic tee. This combo gives me glam with an attitude effect.  Which is basically my motto in life. The tee is a super cute piece from the Boutique+ JcPenney line collaboration with plus size designer Ashley Nell Tipton. Super adorbs, right!?13728359_10207802741201391_1214246714_o

Flat glam shoes are not an easy find but there are a few out there… insert the Christian Siriano Gizelle at Payless for a whooping $20!! Do yourself and get a pair… these beauties will glam up anything!


Final accessory piece is one of most prized possessions…. my Rachel Stewart Jewelry Future Shock clutch.  The colors and graphics give me so much life and its quite a roomy clutch bag.


This entire outfit gives me “Walk into the room, purse first realness… Boom!


All in all, this glam ensemble cost me less then $100. Now, I just need somebody’s event to crash because this beauty must be seen! Are you ready to glam it up!?
