Chocolate Brown | #EveryBODYinPLT

Another color that I love to rock during the cooler months of the year: Chocolate brown ❤ 
Rich hues of brown feel synonymous with autumn and usher in thoughts of yummy hot chocolate (preferably topped with gobs of whipped cream), fresh baked gooey chocolate chip cookies, and homemade fudge 😋
Brown is a timeless neutral and can truly be paired with just about any other color effortlessly. Because I bat for team bold color 99.99% of the time, I usually wear brown with bold hues such as fire engine red or cobalt blue. However, I opted to take a different approach this time around, because that is what fashion is all about! Trying new things! I opted to pair it with light pink - quite possibly for the very first time. And what do you know? I love it just the same - LOL! 
This look is perfect for a girls night on the town or a date night.  
Fit notes: This dress is as a result of my very first time shopping with UK based fast fashion brand Pretty Little Thing. From what I can tell thus far, the brand fits true to size- YAY!!! I am wearing a US size 14. I also ordered a skirt in the same size, and the fit was perfect. Unfortunately I hated the print on it and so back it went... The ruching on this dress is great and very flattering for those generously endowed with curves 😉 My main disappointment was the shipping time (the return process is also a bit irritating), it took just over three weeks to arrive.  I'm not sure if this timeframe meets the standard expectation or if perhaps my case was an exception to the standard.  I find PLT's prices to be reasonable (they have frequent sales) and the quality is on par for fast fashion. Overall, my first experience shopping with the brand was a positive one!  
I'm curious, what new brands have you tried lately?
Until next time,
Xx
