Flatter yourself

Ok, the holidays are over and let's face it – most of us are probably broke and bloated! Back in the fall, we set a limit to how much we were going to spend on holiday gifts and how much weight was acceptable to gain between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, but somehow the majority of us didn't stick to either of those goals.

The New Year is the perfect opportunity to turn all that around so that you are purchasing fashion that fits your real body and your real budget. Here, a savvy style blogger provides three sexy styles for curvy figures... on a budget, of course!

For the average-sized woman

You'll feel both comfortable and beautiful in this ensemble. The red floral dress with the tiered bottom is romantic and current (Vera Wang for Kohls). The empire-waist and v-neck are slimming on all body types and serve as camouflage for any imperfections around the waist or hip areas. The black cardigan is the perfect cover-up to keep the look from being too dressy. The black studded earrings and red glitter clutch add youthfulness while the black bow-tie pumps keep the look sophisticated and chic.
