From Apple to Hourglass: Kiyonna’s Valentina Illusion Dress Works Magic

From Apple to Hourglass: Kiyonna's Valentina Illusion Dress Works Magic

How can one dress turn my plussize apple shape into a sultry hourglass??? Well, Kiyonna figured it out, and this magical garment is called the Valentina Illusion Dress! The secret is in the colorful center with contrasting black lace panels that nip in at the sides and have ruching across the middle…creating the optical illusion of a full, luscious, curvy hourglass figure.

A dress this smart needed an appropriate setting…so I took my curves on down to the library and channeled my inner sexy librarian. 🙂

 

I LOVE this dress…can you tell???  Thank you so much to my awesome friend Wendy for braving the real librarians to take these pictures!!! Thanks honey!!!! xoxo
Outfit details: Dress c/o Kiyonna, Sam Edelmen black Quinn Suede Platform Wedge, disco ball bracelet and solitaire necklace via Forever 21, faux glasses via Claire’s.

    Years ago, I tried the Valentina Lace Dress and loved the way it showed off my curves. So when I found out Kiyonna was creating a version of that dress out of VELVET, I knew I had to have it. The Kiyonna Hourglass Lace Dress* with velvet and lace is even more divine and curve-friendly than the original!
