ASOS Curve and The Collar

As a child, I was enrolled in an elementary school with a strict dress code. Girls could only wear skirts and dresses (no shorter than your knees of course) with collars or a collared shirt. I did this from kindergarten until the 5th grade. So, when I noticed ASOS Curve’s love for collars, I immediately had flashbacks. LOL…OK it’s not that bad. I did notice their mini-obsession with the collar. Which you can find embellished, Peter Pan style, scalloped, and even color blocked. I’m curious…are you a collar fan? 

Vintage Curves: The Plus Side of ModCloth

Where are my vintage clothing lovers? If you’re here, then you already know about ModCloth right. They offer vintage/retro inspired clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, and stuff for your home. They even have a vintage shop, but stuff sells out fast! I’ve known about them for a while, but was always bummed to find out that they didn’t offer plus sizes. Well, that’s certainly not the case anymore. I stumbled over there today researching a post for one of my other blogs and I was surprised at how many plus size pieces they offer. I found these items below in sizes 12-22…

It’s Sparkle Time!

I can’t believe it’s already December! Do you know what means? That means the holidays are right around the corner and there are going to be lots of parties in our futures. And whenever I think of the holidays, I always think of dresses that sparkle. Bring on the sequins and glitter. Seriously, it’s kind of a must for me. I found a few dresses that caught my attention and I’m really looking at the SL Fashion dress from Macy’s. Very holiday chic! Which one is your favorite?  Fashion to Figure $45

Winter & Holiday Collections

The countdown for the holidays has begun! This is one of my favorite times of year. Yes, I’m “one” of those people. I’m a sucker for Christmas and all things having to do with winter. I know it’s still fall, but holiday and winter collections are already debuting. It’s time to get into the spirit of parties and celebrating. Avenue, Evans, IGIGI, Jessica London, Monif C., Monroe and Main, Queen Grace Collection, Simply Be, and Ulla Popken have already given us their collections. We have everything from dazzling dresses to red hot looks. Take a look below, which one is…

HalloweenCostumes.com’s Snow White Costume

It’s that time again…Halloween! It’s almost time for jack-o-lanterns, candy and costumes. Do you love dressing up as much as I do? LOL. Every year I try do a little something different in the costume department. This year, I wanted to go with something a little more…sweet. That’s where this Disney Snow White plus size costume ($63.99) comes in, thanks to HalloweenCostumes.com.

Introducing REAL by MYHABIT, A New Shopping Experience

Everyone’s favorite “go to” shopping site, Amazon.com has created MYHABIT. It’s one of the latest “membership-only” fashion sale sites. And they just recently launched REAL by MYHABIT. It’s a series of online sale events offering women, sizes 14-24, the best designer and contemporary brands at up to 60% off. The sales will last up to 4 days, unless they sell out (which can happen!). Today’s sales include dresses from Taylor Dress, denim from CJ by Cookie Johnson (some of my favorites are already sold out), and Z from Zenobia. I’m loving the red blazer by Z from Zenobia. It’s originally $1,350 and…

Nordstrom dress Sale

I was on one of my favorite shopping sites (of course) and I noticed a few dresses on sale at Nordstrom. These are casual dresses and they start at 50% off! I would like to go in the store and try them on, but my local Nordies doesn’t have a good Encore department. It’s all the way in the corner, like all the other plus departments. Sad isn’t it? I’m digging the Suzi Chin for Maggie Boutique dresses!

OOTD: Romper in B&W

Oh Las Vegas…I love you. Except when you’re hitting 107 degrees! I guess that’s what I get for visiting in the middle of August. Ugh! It was so flippin’ hot. But, that’s OK. I was there this past weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She hasn’t been there in a really long time, so I decided to kidnap her and my brother. We took the four hour road trip from Los Angeles and made our way to “Sin City.” Did I mention it was hot? Because of this heat, I knew  had to wear Torrid’s Smocked Black and White Polka…

Rachel Zoe? Yes or No?

Stylist Rachel Zoe not only dresses the hottest celebrities out there, but she also has her own collection. I’ve see her designs before, but I came across a few of her accessories yesterday and thought…”hmmm those are pretty cute.” Nothing to holler about, but great basics. Then I looked at the price points for her shoes and handbags. They start at $295 and up. Now, I don’t know about you, but I think her pieces are a little overpriced. I love her unique personality, but that’s not really reflected in her collection. Unless, she was purposely trying to mimic all…

Style Trend: 1950’s Style with Dorothy Perkins

Ever since the television hit Mad Men came on the air, I’ve been eyeing all 1950’s fashion. Even Banana Republic has introduced a Mad Men inspired line. For a second, I’ll imagine I’m Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris. I really want a dress now! And I can’t buy from Banana Republic, because they don’t carry my size. Then I remembered Dorothy Perkins carried a lot of 50’s style dresses and they have sizes up to a US 18. Don’t you just love how the silhouette defines the waist and that flared skirt? Great for showing off those curves! They remind…

Parties, Friends, & Torrid

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…

Ask Ivory…

Hi Ivory, I have a blue & white tye dye dress that I want to wear on a brunch cruise, but I’m style challenged on what accessories would look good. Please help!!!! -Tee I love yellow and blue together, so perhaps a yellow clutch? Silver bangles (tons of them; Ashley Stewart carries some really cute ones), large hoops and a chunky ring. I would prefer nude sandals with a heel or you can do wedges. Have fun! ———– Hello Ivory, I work in a professional environment where flip flops, jeans (other than Friday), tank tops, etc. are not appropriate. I…
