Singing in the rain

It may only be in California...well maybe Japan...where you go out to celebrate Christmas by eating sushi. My best friend Tamara and I, and a few others went for sushi dinner and then looked at some glorious Xmas lights.  California also has been having some crazy weather,  major rain.  I felt like my outfit is one I would have worn while I was living in Boston.  The entire outfit are pieces I have picked up from Torrid over the years.  I think girls sometimes don't realize that when you are wearing a dress, it doesn't always have to be worn as a dress.  I wore my hot pink plaid dress from torrid and threw on a tunic dress from torrid over the top. With the help of my sequin belt, I was able to shorten the black dress into a top, and shorten the plaid dress into more of a mini skirt.  I wore a pair of my favorite torrid boots and tied in the leather from the boots in with my leather blazer from torrid.  I also had this great hot pink sequin beret that was a key find at Kohls.  

I see a lot of questions about plus size boots. I had a big fear of buying them myself in the beginning and now I have about 12 pairs.  My best advice is to "just try them on". They differ from pair to pair.  I have a pair of torrid over the knee boots and I need a small army to help assist me put them on but the boots I have pictured above would fit a calf about twice my size. 
I decided to keep my make-up in the pink family and pretty basic.  I used one of my favorite new palettes by Urban decay.
