The Devil's in the Details

BEFORE

AFTER

Hello, my name is JuJu and I'm addicted to accessories! I think it all goes back to when I was younger and had a tough time finding fashionable and trendy clothes as a teenage plus size princess. Because it was so hard to find clothes that I liked, I turned to simple outfits and dressing them up with different accessories. I actually got to the point where I liked accessories more than clothes!

As a lover of fashion I know that in the same way the wrong pair of shoes or the wrong bag can destroy a look, the right accessories can take it to a whole other level! Take this dress for example. In the before picture, it's a boxy, shapeless, unflattering mess. But with a belt added to cinch the waist, a long statement necklace and a pair of hoops, it easily goes from drab to fab! It's just a few simple changes, but it makes all the difference.

Ladies, never underestimate the power of your accessories. They're not just an afterthought that you toss on at the end, they can be a statement making part of your look. In one of my favorite movies, the women call their accessories "frosting". To quote them, "Ladies, Frost yourselves!!!"
