Ethnic Print Dress OOTD

When the plus size clothing brand  Curvissa approached me to try something from their new summer collection I decided to try something out of my comfort zone.
My first love with clothes is always 50's/60's inspired shapes and colours but I'm keen that I never get too stuck in a rut and something about this ethnic print dress really appealed to me.
I love the print which makes me feel like I should be in Sly and the family stones backing band and the slash neck and batwing sleeves which also feel quite 1970's.

Kaftaning my way out of  a style rut

Its elasticated under the boobs and in a lovely soft jersey which gives it a great shape and I've pulled it in further with a belt because its one thing wearing something in a fabric that is reminiscent of a 70's kaftan's and quite another to wear a shape that resembles one.

In the spirit of the dress Ive left my hair down-just being free maaan

In the spirit of being slightly freer I've left my hair down with a small white flower pinning it up at the side. I've matched the orange shades in the fabric with  a lovely sleek lipstick in shade vixen
Purple ballet pumps work surprisingly well with the orange and black print

 I wore this dress to work on a make up job and it was so comfortable. Easy to move in and cool but without the dreaded "tent" shape you can get with more voluminous plus size designs.

Loving my first ever item from Curvissa

Its been my first foray into the world of Curvissa and I'm very impressed by the design and quality.
Are you in a style rut? ready to try something new? Will it be this seasons ethnic prints?
