No, we aren’t talking about the traditional Japanese kimonos. Although, those are amazingly beautiful. I’m talking about the loose fitting, lightweight, and almost cardigan-like kimono. A few have really caught my eye and now that’s all I can think about. I’m looking at you ASOS! So, I did a little research and found a few favorites that need to make it into my wardrobe.
Where do I even begin about my love for this trend. You know it’s one of my favorites. I think I’ve written about it a few times here on my blog. But, this time it’s more than just a pattern. It’s about the contrasting and color blocking that has my attention. Whenever the black and white trend comes back around, it’s always a little different. And this time it’s a definite favorite!
Here’s something you may have noticed about me, I don’t normally wear shorts. I’m not really a big fan. Especially, since the styles have been pretty short lately. Just not my thing. But, now that Bermuda shorts are making a comeback for the summer, you just might see me in a pair.
I love social media, well you already know that because it’s pretty much my life. When I was at a conference this past weekend, I was able to live through my friend/fellow blogger Jasmine’s Coachella experience. I’m not one bit jealous…OK that’s a lie. Anyways, as I sat through her music loving moments, I couldn’t help but wonder what my favorite outdoor concert style trend will be this summer. And yup! I found it…
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.
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!
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.
