Remember how I keep saying I’m going to try and step out of my fashion box? That little box that I’m super comfortable in…yeah that one. Well, I’m trying guys and it all starts with wearing more dresses…and prints…and colors other than black. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with any of that, but there are just way too many fab designs out there for me to stay stuck in that box. So, I partnered with Yona New York to show off their Floral Charmeuse Drape Dress and give two lucky readers the chance to win their own!
I recently wrote a post featuring 20 plus size faux fur vests that I was loving. Of course, this inspired me to make a quick video sharing five easy ways on how to style a faux fur vest. In other words, how I’d style one. These are my tips, but I always encourage you to celebrate your personal style and creativity in every outfit you rock. In the video, I’m wearing the Bisou Bisou Reversible Faux Fur Vest in a 1X from JCPenney. Would you like to see more style videos like this? Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel…
I’m going to be honest, I was never a fan of the faux fur vest. I really wasn’t. That is until I got my hands on one (post coming soon by the way). Just like any accessory, which I consider it, it really is how you style it. And as I was looking online today, I found 20 plus size faux fur vests you just might consider.
Marsala may be Pantone’s color of the year for 2015, but it’s always been one of my favorite colors. Personally, I call it burgundy or wine. Whatever you call it, this deep and dark red is shade is a favorite whenever fall hits. Which is basically now. Of course, I did some looking online and found some Marsala plus size pieces that I’d love to add to my fall wardrobe.
If there’s one thing that bugs me the most about the plus size fashion industry, it’s the lack of true representation when it comes to body shape and size diversity. Not every plus size woman has a flat stomach, is hour glass shaped, or is 5’9 or taller. I’m 5’6, a size 16/18, and I carry most of my weight in my stomach. I’ve discussed this before on this blog or probably ranted about it on Twitter. It’s annoying and frustrating to say the least. And I’m not the only one who feels this way.
This is basically my “wishful thinking” fashion post. Meaning…I wish it was cold enough here in L.A. to wear any one of these plus size cardigans right now. Guys, it’s still hot here and it doesn’t look like the cooler fall temperatures will be here any time soon. So, I sit here dreaming of sweater weather. And like I always do, I found a few favorites that I wanted to share with you.
