OOTD Vol 1

So... I decided to try an Outfit of the Day post.  I'd appreciate feedback if you'd like to give it!  This is my typical dress, you can interchange the pants with skinny jeans when it gets colder.  I'll list all components and retailers below.  I apologize for the quality of the full picture shots, again, I'm limited by my iPhone, but I still stand by documenting with it. It's easy and accessible for me.  Anyways!  I'm going to caption the photos for more explanation, but other than that, I'm leaving it as more of a pastiche of photos.

Bear in mind - I'm 5'8" without the heels, I wear US dress size 16 and L/XL.  I've recently lost 45 lbs and I plan to keep losing, so these OOTD posts are my way of exploring my personal style and figuring out how to dress my slimmer body. I enjoy showing my legs off, as I feel they are my best feature and I've worked the hardest on them because I've lost most of my weight running.

Doesn't look like much here... But! The devil is always in the details my friends.
Shirt detail.  It's actually pretty sheer, but the tie die panels give you the illusion of being curvier.
The shirt and it's illusory curves. Its also longer on the sides and shorter in the front, so I tucked just the front.
Shoe detail.
Fun lucite Rosette earrings for a pop of color.
Hair detail. I air dried it and added some dry shampoo, spray wax and scrunch spray.  I have white blonde highlights in the front of my hair.
Sunglasses and more hair detail! 
The Ecoist Leda Purse I talked about in Think Tank Style.
Jewelry and Makeup.  Typical things for me to wear!
