Happy Thursday! Today's post is inspired by a dress I found while browsing one of my favorite online retailers. It's no secret that I'm fat. (Oh, no! She called herself the f word!) I'm not ashamed by my size at all, but finding clothes that I actually like can be a bit of a challenge. ModCloth definitely gives me options that I love. While I was browsing through the dresses, the one that inspired this look really jumped out at me!

I love this dress! I actually put it on my wishlist as soon as I could. This dress is available in XS-4X. One of my favorite things about ModCloth is that no matter the size, the garments are always the same price. I can't tell you how many times I've heard others complain about having to pay an arm and a leg for the plus size version of something. It's refreshing to see a retailer that doesn't do that.

I started with a white base using Rica Whiteout because we all know how much I love that polish.
When using the acrylic paints, I've found it much easier to twist the caps off and use them as little paint pots. I don't end up wasting paint by pouring it out.
For this look, I just layered small brushstrokes of various shades of blue, green, and yellow. The pattern of the dress really gives you a lot of room to play around with this design. You can make it as bold or as subtle as you want.
If the design isn't looking very good while you're in the process, don't fret! Top coat can change everything. I was just "meh" about this look until I added Glossy Glam. I used two coats here. I found the acrylic paint to be a little on the bumpy side since I layered a lot of it. Trust me. Top coat is your best friend!
Do you think this is on point with the dress? I really love the cool blues and greens with the warmer yellow.
ModCloth has hundreds of other plus size dresses! If you don't like this one, I'm sure there's one you'll fall in love with.
