All White Party: The struggle of finding the perfect plus size all white dress

Last night I went to the 14th annual All White Affair given annually by CGI Entertainment. I don't go out often but I make a effort to support this event. Mostly because it's different than the typical Saturday night club crowd. All White Parties typically bring out the who's who of the city and last night wasn't a exception. The night was filled with good music, food and drinks. I love the layout of the Carde building and although I wished I would've taken more pictures I was busy enjoying myself with a new friend.

  Being that I'm a fashion enthusiast I love to see what people are wearing especially my plus size sisters. As a plus size woman I know how difficult it can be to find the perfect All White Dress for a event. I opted to purchase dress from a "instagram" boutique and honestly I sort of regretted it. Why? Well I saw two other women with the same dress!!!!
It's nothing more awkward then seeing someone else with the same exact dress on not once but twice but in all honesty what could I expect when I opted to shop on instagram. I wasn't the only woman who seem to have this issue however, as I saw several repeat outfits mostly all white skirts and dresses that can be bought on many of the well known instagram shops. While I'm not saying that purchasing items from instragram is necessarily bad but if you're looking for exclusivity then you're best option is to think outside the box. So I wanted to share a few tips, in all honesty find a plus size dress isn't hard but it solely depends on your budget and how many coins you are willing to spare for a one-time event. In my case I tend to only wear these dresses once a year so I tend to limit my budget for this event. I paired my white dress with my Chanel CC earnings and a handmade body chain necklace. I purchased my shoes from Shoedazzle and paired it with my moto-jacket hot pink purse.
