We all know that fashion rules no longer apply. If you’re living by them, feel free to release yourself from these unrealistic standards. As plus size women, we have been told more than once that we shouldn’t wear stripes. Blah…blah…blah…seriously? All I have to say is, give me all of the stripes please. Leota, a premium fashion brand focused on designing “Feminine, Sophisticated, and Effortless” pieces reached out and offered to send me one of their dresses. Of course I chose the one striped to the max. The Mia in Stripe dress is bold, yet versatile and very comfortable—three of my…
Oh sequins…why do I love you so much? It has clearly become a little bit of an obsession. Especially, when I’m online searching for anything covered in sequins. I do this for you guys…I swear. I am definitely going to blame the holidays on this one. Even though we all know you can wear them anytime of the year. Yes, you can! If you’re a lover of all things sparkly, but don’t want to spend too much, I found a few sequin pieces, from accessories to plus size dresses, that caught my eye and are all under $50. Click through…
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!
Have you ever had one of those moments when you just saw something online and just had to have it? And then all of the stars align when you see that it’s not outrageously over-priced and it’s available in your size. Yes, that’s exactly what happened to me the moment I saw this bohemian-inspired paisley print dress. It was like we were meant to be together.
Didn’t I tell you guys I was obsessed with olive? This is my new favorite color, after wearing black of course. It’s such an awesome color that can transition easily from summer to fall. Speaking of summer, it’s been so hot here in L.A. lately, that I have my eye on all things to keep me cool. And this Simply Be olive plus size dress was perfectly perfect on a 90 degree day.
If you’re anything like me, you’re a little on the fence when it comes to the boho-loving paisley print. I understand that not everyone is a fan. For me, it really depends on the style of the piece. I need something that’s going to be a little more on trend. From kimonos, dresses, tops, and even a skirt and a jumpsuit—here are a few styles I really kind of need to add to my wardrobe.
I’m not going to lie. When I think of denim skirts, I instantly time travel back to when I was a kid. I’d rock that denim skirt with my jelly shoes! Yes, I’m proudly showing my age! Well, it looks like they haven’t gone anywhere. I went searching online for some of my favorite plus size denim skirts at every length!
I think I’m always and forever going to be in a boho kind of mood. It seems like I’m not the only one. A lot of our favorite designers and brands are also feeling it. My 10 plus size bohemian favorites range in style and price. From a luxurious silk kimono to a linen dress, there really is something for everyone. Are you into the tribal print or more of a crochet kind of chica?
