You might be wondering why in the world I am wearing another off the shoulder dress.
Well, clearly these are trending right now but there is a reason deeper than that.
And it has to do with my body.
We live in a world over saturated with perfection.
Everyone is trying to be perfect in every way possible.
It's exhausting to keep up! I have grown older I've surrendered to the idea that I can be perfect with a few minor changes here and there.

One of my biggest insecurities is my body.
Now, I know I am not fat but I can always be fitter, thinner and healthier.
At 5'2 I am definitely on the curvier spectrum and compared to many fashion bloggers I am indeed "fat".
To be blatantly honest it's a daily struggle posting photos and talking about outfits when you do not feel 100% confident in yourself.

That's where this off the shoulder trend comes in...
My favorite part of my body is my collar bone and shoulders.
I was once told by a man that I had the sexiest collar bone he had ever seen.
It's the one and only part of my body that I flaunt with the utmost confidence.
We all have things we like and dislike about our selves.
Especially on the exterior.
In the end what I've learned is to accentuate our "good" parts and learn to love those that make us feel insecure.

On a side note this AX Paris dress is killer.
It has the most beautiful frill top that is both feminine and sexy.
I paired it with my Mode Collective heels and sassy Quay sunnies!

What parts do you love about your body?
As always, love you guys!


wearing: dress - c/o ax paris, heels - mode collective, sunglasses - quay 



  1. I can't pinpoint an exact area on my body...but I do enjoy my shoulders (especially when I'm at a fit, healthy weight and they are looking firm!). I think this trend is chic and rock it well!

  2. I can relate to you 100% on this subject. It's very nerve racking to put ourselves out there, with much curvier bodies than the majority of fashion bloggers, but we do it and that's what makes us awesome. I JUST went to your IG right before reading this post to show my boyfriend and was telling him how gorgeous I think you are and how you make me feel like I'm not alone. Curvy girls unite! <3 (also, you look amazing in everything you wear/post! Believe that!)

  3. I can totally relate to you! Thank you so much for opening up about this. I too have my insecurities about my body and once I started my blog, I really noticed them more. But as time went on, post after post, I really noticed good qualities about myself. We must learn to love our Armenian curves :) You are lovely in every way! Thank you again!

  4. so nice pics; >>

  5. I hear ya... You look stunning as always! Gorgeous.


  6. You look incredibly beautiful and so feminine, it's crazy! Love your dress!

  7. This dress fits you like magic! Love the dramatic ruffle, too!


  8. You look so gorgeous! This dress is perfect on you! Honestly us stick skinnies girls struggle with looking too thin too! I try on a pair of jeans and I'm like ugh I wish I had more curves to fill these out! I think we all struggle with wanting what we don't have! I have come a long way with excepting I wont ever be that sexy curvy girl! Also I love a good collarbone and yours are definitely gorgeous! :)

  10. I'm loving your navy dress, the off-the-shoulder look is so gorgeous.
    xo, j

  11. Wow. I don't even know where to begin. This dress is super gorgeous and you definitely rocked it. With a statement dress like this, there is always a danger of the dress wearing you. But you definitely held your ground and looked so so fab!

    If you have a sec, I'd love for you to check out my latest on the blog:
