Annotated Style: Marie Denee, The Curvy Fashionista

"I love this hot pink dress from Rachel Pally: instantly chic and flirty. I originally got it to wear on a trip to New York, but I had too many outfits, not enough time! So I stashed it for BET Awards. A few bloggers were invited to look in on the process as Tika Sumpter got flashbulb-ready in the Cover Girl Queen Collection beauty lounge. This is me at my own red-carpet moment."

2  "I wanted to define the waistline on this dress, so I picked up a snakeskin belt from Target. It disappears on this outfit, but it gets the job done. I like to mix high and low pieces to lend a bit of individuality to the look, and when I walk into Target, I know it’s going to have my size."

3  "Being a plus size-woman and finding a bangle that fits my wrists is rare, so I found some and stacked them up! These are from Lane Bryant."

"Ann Marie from Heart’s Desire Jewelry made these for me about two years ago. The earrings were initially just two gold links. But with my hair so short, I asked her to make them longer, to give them more attitude! When she added another five links, I knew they were keepers. I wear them with everything."

5 "This is me in the process of growing my hair out of a fro-hawk. Now, I’m letting my hair do its own thing. I have relinquished all control."
