Look like a Gucci model at Target Prices!

It seems like everywhere I look designers and high-fashion magazines are presenting looks of glamorous color-blocking, metallics and cat-eye shades. These are all very daring, especially for plus-size frames and I thought I'd put together an outfit of affordable separates for the full figured fashionistas out there who are not ready to commit to one wild, color-block piece or sky-high price tags. 

I was really lusting after the Gucci look that was shown last spring and may be responsible for all the brights and color combos his season. I find rich teals and blues to be more wearable than spring's shades of orange. Check out the FoxyRoxy take on the runway looks...on the cheap!!

Put these all together with gold accessories, big gold hoop earrings and a ponytail and you are ready for  the hottest new lounge, VIP style. Oversized cat-eye shades shown below are a good take on the trend for larger or round faces. Also, for added boldness, color block your whole body with coral suede chunky platforms, instead of the matching Cerulean/Cobalt/Gold peep toes.
