It’s the middle of October, Halloween is around the corner, and Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is every where. I not only love the Mexican holiday, but I love the fashion inspired by it. That’s why I decided to create my own plus size Day of the Dead inspired look.
Two of my favorite things together again—fashion and my friends. Thanks Torrid for the invite to your Holiday Preview Event! We all gathered at their headquarters, here in Los Angeles, for an afternoon of fashion. Unfortunately, I was stuck in traffic and arrived just a little bit late. The story of my L.A. life.
Are you ready for some glamorous dresses? I can’t hear you! OK…seriously I can’t hear because this is a blog, but I can imagine that you’re saying yes! Well, we all know about my love for Tadashi Shoji. His gowns and cocktail dresses are stunning. And when they sent me the Fall/Holiday 2013 Lookbook, you know I had to share it with you.
There’s that moment, when you put on an article of clothing and it just feels like it was made for you. It’s one of those “perfect fit” experiences. What’s even better is when you don’t think it will look good on you, then when you’re wearing it all of that just goes away. Sonsi, your “go to” online plus size fashion shop, sent me a few items from their (awesome) City Chic boutique and it was all I needed to make my weekend.
When it comes to style on a budget, no one knows better than Shauna of the blog Penny Chic! This chick is so amazingly sweet! A few months ago, she sent me two dresses from her Little Black Dress Collection. It’s a collaboration between Shauna and Walmart that offer women of all sizes five basic LBD’s. Here I am wearing “The Skater” at the FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase.
