My favorite, the Grace dress is included as well!
Yes! More outfits from my weekend at BlogHer. And these two are courtesy of one of my favorite brands, Torrid. They’ve really been stepping it up, in my opinion. Especially, in the quality department. And that’s something that goes a long way for me. If you’re going to spend the money, the piece has to last!
Here I am sitting with my partner in crime, Cid from Cid Style File. We practically hung out all weekend in San Diego. This is from one of the many parties we attended. I wore Torrid’s Leopard Mesh Maxi Dress and I felt very sexy in it. I even got a few compliments while I was dancing my butt off. I do wish it was a little longer, but I guess it’s better that way, so I wasn’t tripping over it.
On our last day at the conference, I wore Torrid’s Navy Embroidered Challis Tube Top. I was seriously expecting this to be a thinner top, with the design to be painted on. But, I was wrong. This top, made from rayon, had this amazing embroidery. I wore it with my Torrid skinny jeans.
One of the things I loved about both of these strapless pieces is that they didn’t fall down on me. That’s something I really appreciated. Especially, on a busy running around kind of day.
A big thank you to Torrid for the amazing pieces I wore to BlogHer.
Disclosure: These items were courtesy of Torrid. The above is my true and honest opinion.
The Queen Grace Collection was one of my favorite lines that came down the Full Figured Fashion Week runway. The pieces are elegant and clean. Here’s the Fall 2011 Look Book. The “Grace” dress is my favorite! Which one do you love?
Don’t mind the glare in my eyes, I was running out the door to an event. I did make sure to snap a photo of some pieces Torrid had sent me. Yes, I did get the package that day. Thank goodness, because I didn’t know what I was going to wear. And since this was a casual L.A. happy hour, I thought this would be perfect.
I’m wearing Torrid’s Feather Print Tube Top and Source of Wisdom Black Luxe Skinny Jean. The top is really light and has a little cinching under the bust, which I liked because it gave me some shape. I think the best thing was the fact that it didn’t fall down every second like some tube tops do. Now, the skinny jean is really soft and you know I love a stretchy jean. They aren’t heavy and thick like normal denim, which I appreciated, because it was pretty warm.
I kept the accessories simple with Bongo earrings from Kmart, bracelets bought at a yard sale, and a ring I got in Downtown L.A. for $1! My shoes are by Jefferey Campbell (Nordstrom Rack), I love the back of the heel. For some reason it makes me feel fierce!
Disclosure: I was gifted the clothing from Torrid and earrings from Kmart. This by no way affects my review. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I made my way over to Domino Dollhouse and was so inspired by their new Make Out Circus Collection! The pieces look so fun and I really love all the red! And I’m loving the models too (Go Tess!). Red always seems to be one of my favorite colors, regardless of the season. DD starts at size 14 and goes up. I love their saying.
Domino Dollhouse strives to bring exciting, charming, and fun clothing and accessories to a market thirsty for more. While others give you water, we give you fruit punch!

If there’s a designer out there that knows a woman’s curves, it has to be Monif C. That’s why she was selected as Full Figure Fashion Week’s Plus Designer of the Year. Do I even need to give you another reason why? Just look at her designs, they speak for themselves. Besides, most of them are sold out. That should tell you something.
If you’re attending Full Figured Fashion Week, which I hope you are, you’ll be happy to know that the Monif C. boutique is located in New York City. You’ll actually get to see her famous convertible dress and amazing swimsuits up close. And you’ll know why they’re a curvy woman’s dream come true.
Remember, there are only a few days left to buy your tickets. Get them before they’re gone.
It’s about to get real classy up in here…make room for chiffon ladies. Chiffon is that material that was usually saved for special occassion dresses. Not anymore. I have seen this trend every where. And I really think any age or size can wear it in almost any color. There are so many different styles and it’s used different ways. Personally, I love when it’s used on the sleeves. Just so you know, I am literally lusting after #4 from Dorothy Perkins and if someone buys it before I do…I just might scream.
If there’s one color that compliments any skin tone, I’d have to say it’s coral. This mix between pink and orange is definitely a year-round color. ASOS knows that it is too. This is one of my favorite colors to wear. Just look at all the pieces below. I will admit, I want them all. When don’t I? Fashion is so addicting! LOL
I was looking over some old outfit posts and I couldn’t help but notice how my style has evolved. I don’t follow any “rules” and I dress regardless of what people think. It’s how I feel in a garment that dictates my mood. For example, this Lovedrobe Crochet Neck Dress (£38.00) made me feel very flirty. Not that I was, but you know what I mean (LOL). The dress was a little too short for me, so I wore my Bali leggings underneath. My hubby was happy about that. I chose my trusty Nine West heels to wear out that night. And I accessorized with a beautiful ring from Avenue and my Lane Bryant bracelets.
This dress got me so many compliments! I love the ruffle hem and the crocheted neck. Two distinct design features that you wouldn’t normally think go together. And the crochet goes all the way around, while the ruffle hem is just in the front. The dress does have a tie in the back so you can adjust it and a black slip underneath the dress, so it’s not see through. I did get a size bigger than what I normally wear, bit it didn’t make too much of a difference, I just adjusted the tie in the back and I was set. Love it!
Dear Rachel Pally,
You don’t know me, but I have to say that I love your “White Label” collection. You have definitely captured the laid back L.A. style without compromising the chicness of your designs. In 2007, you created this collection for plus size women…thank you. I love your mission “To provide quality, comfort, and style to women of all shapes and sizes.” And that’s what you’ve done. This week I’m going to your sample sale in hopes of buying a few things. I’m supposed to be on a strict budget, but if I can get my hands on any of the dresses below (at a discounted rate) I’d be a very happy woman. Just don’t tell my husband.
What do you wear on a sunny day in Los Angeles? A maxi dress! Not just any dress, but the Passion Flower Maxi (on sale $30) by City Chic. The Australian fashion retailer is really impressing me with the fit and quality of their designs. My hubby picked this dress and I’m so happy he did. It’s the perfect length for my 5’6 height. I really liked the slight draping in the front and the ruched band on the bust. My favorite part of the dress is the fact that it actually fit me in the chest area without falling down and being uncomfortable. I actually didn’t want to take the dress off, that’s how comfortable it is. Oh and I must point out that the shipping from City Chic is FREE and it got here in a few days. That makes me a happy shopper.
I accessorized this dress with my favorite pair of Nine West gladiator sandals, a coral ring from H&M, bracelets from Avenue, and a brass key necklace from Mindfulnest. I told you ladies I’m going to be a maxi dress wearing fool this spring and summer (LOL).
The word SALE is like music to my ears. And I’ve been very impressed with City Chic’s clothes lately. I even have a few reviews coming soon.
But, for now, go to CityChicOnline.com! Everything is 30% OFF (excluding already on sale items). Hmmm….so what do I want. Easter decisions are soooo hard to make.
*Sale ends at midnight on April 26.
