Style & Designer: Lotta Stenson

Luxury resort wear isn’t really something I look into very often. There doesn’t seem to be much of it for us curvy gals. But, when I find something that is a “One Size” and looks like it will fit me…I’m all over that. That’s what happened when Ivory and I were walking around Magic LV last month and came across Lotta Stenson Resort Wear. 

You may bave seen some of Lotta’s designs on a few celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie.

I will tell you that Lotta is not only extremely nice, but she has a great eye for prints. We were immediately mesmerized by her flowy ponchos, kaftans, and tunics. I love this description from her bio:

“Since the very beginning Lotta has always been inspired by fabrics, colors and embroideries of far away lands. She values the artistry found in the “hand-work” of communities abroad and through her extensive travel and exploring the globe Lotta creates her own hand embroidered fabrics, tie dye’s and batik’s and is also know for her beautiful hand drawn prints. She creates designs silhouettes that are sexy, feminine and easy to wear.”

When I look at her designs I immediately imagine myself on a tropical island…don’t you?

Style & Designer: Tory Burch Part II

Tory Burch has always caught my eye, especially with that logo! I’m sorry, I’m not normally about logos, but I can’t help but look when I see someone wearing one of her pieces. Especially if it’s an accessory.

I have featured Tory in one of my first Style & Designer pieces here.

I was doing some research last night for the next issue of Plus Model Magazine and I couldn’t help but fall in love every time I saw one of her handbags. So, today I went looking for a few pieces and found these.

She’s keeps everything so classic and clean. Something I really appreciate when it comes to accessories. I would take everything here, because I can’t choose just one.

Although, the boots are kind of calling my name.

What would you rather wear, the flats or the boots?

Style & Designer: Michael Kors

If you asked me to choose my favorite designer for clothes, accessories, and shoes; I would have to give it to this genius-Michael Kors. I am in LOVE with almost everything he designs.

His creations are modern, yet very chic. Nothing is an overstatement. Just the way I like it. And you know his pieces will carry from season to season.

Kors began his fashion career at 19 and has not looked back! He not only designs woman’s fashion, accessories, and shoes- he also has his own fragrance line. In case you’re wondering Macy’s carries his plus-size pieces. And yes, I love him on Project Runway. He’s so brutally honest.

Style & Designer: Tory Burch

You may know Tory Burch from her signature flat, but she has more than that up her silk sleeve! There are sandals, pumps, and handbags…oh my! I’m drooling as I type.

She’s also got a posh little web site too! There’s “Tory’s Must-Haves” and “Style Guide.” The “Style Guide” is home to her blog, inspiration, trends, and a lot more. It’s really cute! Just thought I’d share it with you.
