Earlier this month, I made a visit to The PINQ House, a three-room bungalow in historic Fayetteville, Georgia, which houses a salon, glamorous party space and the gem I have come to love, The Thiq Boutique.
I first became familiar with The Thiq Boutique as a model in a fashion show here in Atlanta. The Thiq Boutique is known and respected in the plus size community for assuring that plus size women slay, no matter the occasion. The boutique is notorious for bringing plus size fashionistas the hottest in clothing, accessories and footwear. Over the years, The Thiq Boutique has participated in many events and have had it’s fashion grace many runways, including the prestigious Full Figured Fashion Week.
One piece that I gravitated towards while visiting The Pinq House was this gorgeous Emberly Dress, a tastefully sexy and stunning dress with a low v-neck that just makes you want to twirl the very second you put it on your body. The loosely flowing Emberly Dress is the perfect movement dress and I almost felt like it came “alive” when I put it on. I’m a lover of prints, colors and patterns so this navy blue maxi, covered in feminine green, pink, magenta and orange floral prints landed me right in my comfort zone.
The piece is very well-made, the majority of it is sheer, with the exception of the mid-thigh navy blue lining underneath. It also has a sexy low-v neckline that looks great with a plunging bra. As hot as it’s been in Atlanta this summer, I was pleasantly surprised and thankful that although it had long sleeves, cuffed at the wrist, I actually remained very cool while wearing it. I love that this quality piece offers the perfect look I would want for shopping with my girls, a fashionably late brunch in the city or to wow on a first date!
I stand at 5’10 and the dress fell right to my feet. I paired it with low, nude heels to give it a little lift from the floor, but I’m sure I could have worn it with a pair of cute sandals as well AND STILL SLAYED!
Are you into prints? To me, nothing makes heads turn like the perfect print! While many women, like myself, love them, I know that there are also many women, especially plus-size women, who feel that prints don’t flatter their figures. I think the waist-tie is a perfect remedy to that concern as it did a great job of emphasizing my waist, which drew attention to my bust, creating a dramatic element around the top half of my body.
The Emberly Dress is available at The Thiq Boutique in sizes 1x to 3x and is priced at $$59.99. Shop with me using promo code WWW17 to score 10% off your purchase!
