Style Trend: The Doctor’s Bag

The doctor bag is in. And I’m really loving it right now. There’s just something about the clean and simple design. Nothing is too complicated here. Are you a fan?  Read more

Is the Baroque Print for You?

One thing I’ve learned in our plus size fashion community is that just because one of us falls in love with a trend doesn’t mean we all do. Mind boggling isn’t it? This past week I was reminded of that when I dismissed a horrible pair of printed pants only to find that everyone else loved  them. Everyone thought they were Versace inspired…me on the other hand? I thought they were grapes.  Read more

Style Trend: Faux, Leather, & Pleather Jackets

I cringe as I write this post. It’s 84 degrees in Los Angeles and just the thought of wearing one of these is making me sweat. But, it is officially fall now and I see the faux, leather, and pleather jackets hitting the racks. Do you have yours yet? Maybe one of these will make it into your closet! Read more

Style Trend: The Black Lace Dress

I don’t care that it’s hotter than *&%$#@^! outside, I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming holiday season! That means lots of parties and events. It’s time to start thinking about dresses! Instead of the basic LBD, why not try a LBLD? A Little Black Lace Dress. I just invented that by-the-way. Read more

Style Trend: Houndstooth

The houndstooth print isn’t for everyone. In fact, half of you probably love it and the other half…not so much. But, that’s OK! Just because it’s a trend doesn’t mean you have to like it. I like my prints in small doses, that’s just me. And I can imagine wearing this print, also known as dogstooth, in an office or business casual setting. Read more

Style Trend: The Denim Jacket

I know it might be a little hard to think about jackets in this summer heat, but it really is time to start thinking about it. Seriously, fall is right around the corner. And if there’s one piece to add to your wardrobe, it has to be the denim jacket.  Read more

I can’t seem to keep my eyes off all of the bold prints and bright colors I’m seeing everywhere. It all started with this chic red, black, and white Anne Klein dress (below). There’s just something about it. I want it so bad! Surprise Surprise…I think I have a serious “want” problem. Aye…anywhoo take a look below and let me know which looks have caught your eye.

Bloomingdale’s Plus Spring 2012 Style Guide

Spring is here and we already know what the trends are. Don’t we? Well if you don’t this might help you out. Today, I was looking around the Bloomingdales web site and I came across their plus spring style guide. It caught my eye and wanted to share it with you. Which trend is your favorite?

Style Trend: Bright Blazers

You know it’s all about bright colors this spring! And now blazers are definitely getting in on the action. I know we always complain that we can’t find blazers in our sizes, but I think I might have you covered. I found a few below that are not only in amazingly bold colors, but they come in a range of plus sizes and prices. And they aren’t that traditional blazer style either. Check out the cropped style from Jessica London or this beautiful wrapped style from Ashley Stewart. Throw it over a spring dress or with a pair of your hottest skinny jeans with a tank underneath. Instant hot outfit!

Which blazer below do you love? 


Trends: The “Hi & Lo” of Things

The “Hi-Lo” or “High-Low” dress is kind of my latest obsession. With it’s high hem in the front and low hem in the back (hence the name), it’s really an eye-catching style. As you can see, they come in all kinds of colors and prints. You may eve find a skirt here or there. This really is a “love em’ or hate’em” kind of dress. So, what do you think?

Love it or Hate it?
