Drop a Few Pounds

When trying to lose weight it’s important to remember that not everyone is meant to be a size zero; what’s more significant is being healthy and comfortable in your own body. Sydney’s Closet designs dresses specifically for women who are size 14 or above. They never take a small dress and just try to make it bigger. Why? A dress designed for a woman with small breasts and slim hips won’t suit someone with a curvaceous figure.

At Sydney’s, the experts know how to make full-figured bodies look amazing. The designers create patterns based on a size 16 and go from there to create flattering and fashionable dresses.  The company believes that is you’ve got curves, flaunt them.

Moving Up the Corporate Ladder

Looking to land a promotion or a new job that boosts your career? Then resolve to spruce up your work wardrobe. Part of being taken seriously at work, and considered for promotion, comes from you looking the part.

CEOs rarely take board meetings in sweatshirts. Workwear doesn’t necessarily mean a stuffy, stiff  suit. You can dress for success in a casual dress that shows your boss you are  ready to take on more. Black and navy remain a classy and classic choice for the office. But don’t be afraid of color like Shannon twist-front dress that’s professional, yet still feminine and very fashionable.  

Be sure to make your look go head to toe. Save the silver sequin high heels for a night out on the town rather than a day at the office.  Well-styled flats or kitten heels give you a clean - and comfortable - footwear option to wear 9 to 5.
