Hey Delights!

I attended a pre-opening event & tour of the new Eloquii Chicago store and a couple of weeks later I attended the official grand opening. I pulled out my fab Violeta by Mango faux leather cape & rocked a gorgeous asymmetrical one shoulder faux leather top with a vintage Eloquii skirt from a year or so ago & some oldie but goodie slinkback shoeties (similar style available in 2 colors).
All the blogger babes were there and I had such a great time styling my cousin & smiling at the transformation that took place for her in the dressing room. A little backstory. My cousin Sonya's style is relatively conservative but I knew the moment that I invited her to the event that I was going to get her to try some new things.

Plus Size {Pick of The Day}: SimplyBe's Must Have Jackets

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. By doing so, you help to keep this blog going & I appreciate & thank you for it. 

Hey Delights!

As I expressed way back in 2013SimplyBe has always been one of my favorite UK plus size brands and today they are hooking us up with a  1 Day Only 50% Off Sitewide sale. One of my favorite coats of ALL TIME, this faux leather panel trench coat is from the brand, so I wanted to share a few jackets and coats that they currently have that I think would be great additions to your wardrobe.



Each of course has their own vibe. I was thinking transitional wear with the faux leather pea coat, and the gorgeous blue padded biker jacket, And we know, I just love animal print, so this textured biker jacket was a no brainer. And of course the holiday season will be here before we know it, so I love this crochet jacket because it is always nice to have something light to throw over your pretty tops and dresses. And this white fluted sleeve jacket brings the drama but is of course a great neutral to rock dressed up or down.

 SimplyBe has such a huge selection on their site, so selecting these 5 pieces was a challenge but I think they are good options. There are also some great dresses, like this Magisculpt beauty that comes in both black and red and just screams holiday season to me with the velvet and sheer arms.

Plus Size {Pick of The Day}: Cape Coats

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. By doing so, you help to keep this blog going & I appreciate & thank you for it. 

Hey Delights!

As I mentioned here, we welcomed the new Eloquii store to Chicago last week and if you are following me on Snapchat or Instagram then you know that I completely fell IN LOVE with both of these coats.

There is no secret around here that I am obsessed with capes. Like OBSESSED. I mean, the love is real, REAL. SooOO of course I was instantly drawn to both of these beauties.

This tie neck cape coat is such an amazing piece. It has this great relaxed cocoon but structured vibe to it and the color is so gorgeous. And that tie neck adds such a classy touch to it. It is a great transitioning piece for Fall and Winter. For Fall I would probably rock it like I did here, with a thick, cable knit cardigan sweater. And for winter, I would put a jacket under it like I did here with my faux suede piece.
The details of my clothes under the coat are here.

And this peplum cape jacket! OHHH MYY GAWDDD!

{What I Wore} Classic Cool Black + White

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hey Delights!

I have literally been living in these fabulous slip on kicks. I love the pom poms and they are super comfortable. The weather here in Chicago has been so crazy and unpredictable and on some days really chilly, so I was able to pull out that fab white trench coat that I purchased on mega sale a couple of months ago.

I also threw on my favorite City Chic jeans, these black coated corset jeans (seen here), which I live in also and which are currently on a sweet sale during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. They are just so comfortable and well...sexy chic.😄 I especially love the gold button and zipper details.

And I patiently watched this bucket bag for weeks, waiting for it to go on sale and snagged it now that it is 50% off. It's so lightweight but it holds a ton. PERFECT!
p.s. these slip ons come in 3 colors and come in medium and wide width and go up to a size 13!

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases.

Hello Delights!

April showers bring...leopard rain boots & fab trench coat moments. I purchased this Via Spiga trench coat back in December for such a crazy deal and although mama nature wasn't ready to let Spring be great, GREAT just yet, I pulled it out & rocked it last week.




And while my trench coat collection runs really deep with lots of colors, I did not have a white one so I snagged this T Tahari single breasted trench. It has a lace flap back which is so pretty and today it is only $24 in my size (2x). Win WIN!!!!!!

I have had these boots forever and all LOVE to the inventor of the bubble umbrella 🌂.While folks were wet & struggling & the wind 💨was breaking their regular umbrellas like they were made of paper, I was dry, dancing in the streets & singing in the rain.💃





Cheers to April and let's hope all this crazy rain will bring the most beautiful flowers!

{What I Wore} Valentine's Blush

Hello Delights!

As I mentioned in my post featuring the faux leather peg leg pants, I really want to have fun with fashion and rock things that I don't normally rock. So when I saw this soft pink crepe blazer and ankle grazer cigarette pants, I had to have them & I am thinking about getting them in the lavender color that is currently available.

While I LOVE color and wear it as much as possible, I rarely wear pink. And I definitely did not have a pink pant suit in my life. And this is such a sweet blush of pink. While I went pretty dressy for this look with the deep v bodysuit & floral heels, I can't wait to dress these pieces down also.

{Five Fab} For the Weekend Vol. 12

Happy Friday Delights!  

Welcome to the first volume of the Five Fab For the Weekend for 2017! I am working on editing my first interview for the CurvaCast and I am excited to share it with you.

So much going on in the world but this is a happy place today so let's get into the Five Fab!

Shop:  While it may not feel like it but Spring will be here before and Eloquii is having a buy 3 get 50% off sale so I did a little shopping this morning to pick up a few Spring things. I love this cold shoulder wrap dress. It also comes in green and I almost got that color but I own several green dresses but not one coral dress in this tone, so I went with this color.

UPDATE: I ordered this dress and it was just as beautiful in person as on the picture but the straps were so ridiculously long that there was no way to wear it (check out the reviews on the site). I thought about altering it but I decided against it and returned it. And that really sucks because it is a beautiful piece but there was obviously some manufacturing issue with the straps.

{What I Wore} Teddy Bear Faux Fur Coat & Blooms

Hey Delights! 

One of the things that I promised myself during the 12 Days of January was that I would do something small but special for myself every weekend. So now that I am on my way back to wellness and up and at it again, Sunday I went and picked up some flowers. Nothing expensive. I got them at Trader Joe's for like $10. But they are beautiful and they make me smile, which is all that matters.

And because as I mentioned here, I wanted to lighten up my energy, I pulled out my teddy bear coat. I love this coat so much. It's totally like rocking a cozy blanket 😘

{What I Wore} Popped A Little Powder Blue Spring on this Winter

After being sick for what felt like FOREVER, I have really been in search of things that give me a little more pep in my step, so I have ditched my beloved long black puffer coat (seen here & here) for my more colorful ones and I already feel lighter.

Saturday I went to see a great play (review forthcoming) and I pulled out this powder blue beauty that I got from Old Navy forever ago to rock over a catsuit. It is fuzzy and such a great color that you can't help but feel good in it.

Here are a few other lighter, fab, fuzzy winter coats to put a little Spring in your Winter.

{Five Fab} For the Weekend Vol. 9

Happy Friday from frigid Chicago! I should have known that Mother Nature was setting us up with that beautiful snow the other day. Winter came thru like a b*tch slap yesterday! Brrr....

Anyway, stay warm if it's cold where you are and if it's not, I hate you...LOL..just kidding. Well, kinda 😃

Shop: I started this morning off snuggling under the blankets and shopping this sale at Lane Bryant. I picked up three tops because I never seem to have enough when I am getting dressed and this super cute pajama set, which pretty much describes how I feel about life right now!!

{What I Wore} Faux Leather + Cold Shoulder Stripes

Today was such a beautiful day. Fall is in full effect and I am all about layering, so I paired this gorgeous striped cold shoulder sweater with my fuzzy sweater and threw my faux leather cape over them.

I am still madly in love with my faux leather culottes so I wear them as much as possible all year long. They just make getting dressed so easy because they truly go with EVERYTHING & they add that little touch of luxury.

{Fab Five} For the Weekend | Vol.2

Hey Fabs! Happy Weekend! 

I hope you had a great week. The weather has been all over the place in Chicago but that has only made the weekend even sweeter to me.  This morning I grabbed one of my favorite throw blankets (I want this one!), my tablet, some tumeric and ginger tea, put this cucumber mask on and chilled on the balcony.

Shop: It's no secret that I LIVE FOR CAPES. Like LIVVEE! I love them so much and have them in so many styles and I am working on a whole separate post about them but I wanted to share this Forever Audrey Cape NOW, before it's sold out.

I love both of the colors but the yellow definitely is my top pick. I just love the punch of color and how great it would be with all the fall prints, etc.

{Five Fab} Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant Fall Collection Must Haves

It is officially Christian Siriano season! First he showed the fashion world how a fashion show should be done by strutting models of various sizes down the runway during New York Fashion Week.
And now, just days later, his latest collaboration with Lane Bryant has dropped.

The Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant Collection is a limited edition run featuring pretty blues, prints, classic fabrics and details with a twist.

Here are five pieces from the collection that I think are total must haves.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Spring Perfect Waterfall Coat #PlusSizePick

UPDATE: This arrived a couple of weeks ago and I am finally opening it and while its still cute, I wanted to make sure that it was noted that it is not really a coat but more like a thin jacket.

Although it is of course only January, I am already in Spring mode and all the sweet pastels & softer colors are calling out to me in a major way.

Today's plus size pick, this Waterfall Coat from Boohoo also comes in a sleek black and delicious chocolate mocha but I chose this stone color because it is such a great, soft neutral color and will be beautiful with all the spring colors and patterns.

{What I Wore} Winter Weekend Casual Style

Hey Fabs!

Still getting used to hearing & writing 2016 but completely excited for what it brings. Aren't you? As I have written before, I am a total new years resolutions kind of a girl, so while I have just been keeping things pretty laid back these first couple of days, I have major goals and I will definitely be working on them.

Anyway, Chicago like lots of other cities has definitely started to feel very wintry after weeks of unseasonably warm weather. And now it's sweater weather, so I have been pulling out my sweaters, layers and heavier pieces in defense.

Today I ventured out to meet Joe for a latte late in the afternoon. I have finally settled in on a Starbucks drink after I had to stop drinking my beloved chai because it is not vegan. But now, it's a decaf, soy, no foam, extra hot 9 pumps hazelnut latte. And when the barista gets it right...mmmm...it's so good.

I purchased this h&m sweater early on in December after spotting it on an ad featuring Katy Perry. It was a crazy steal considering the quality & warmth of it and it sold out pretty fast but here is a similar jacquard knit style in 2 colors.

Plus Size {Fall Fashion} Pick of The Day: Faux Leather Cape #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

I love capes and my cape collection has grown to be seriously deep over the past few years but because there are so many fabulous options this season I definitely wanted to add a couple of new ones to my arsenal. The variety of prints, colors and fabrications is exciting BUT this faux leather cape is definitely in a class by itself!

Plus Size {Fall Fashion} Pick of The Day: Faux Leather Skater Dress #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

I am in faux leather heaven lately with all the fabulous pieces that brands are dropping. In addition to the faux leather pencil skirt that I ordered, I also ordered this faux leather skater dress, (which comes in three colors).

Plus Size Faux Leather Skater Dress
I ordered it in the "moroccan blue" color which is definitely more teal greenish than what it looks like on the site and in this picture but I am actually glad that it is. I would have gone with the "rhododendron" color which is very marsala like but I purchased a dress in that color with leather insets a month ago.

Plus Size {Fall Fashion} Pick of The Day: Adam Lippes for Target Plus Size Plaid Layering Duster #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

I am not complaining about the current weather here in Chicago which has been in the 70's as of late but I am so ready for Fall and layering. So today's #PlusSizePick could not have dropped at a more perfect time for me.

Have you checked out the Adam Lippes for Target collection that went live today? It is full of fun plaid looks for everything from your pets to your table top to looks for the men in your life and I am digging it. The only bummer is that the shoes only go up to a size 10 and I wear an 11 and I would have definitely purchased the ballets flats. Sigh...

Other than that, the piece that I chose from the collection for my #PlusSizePick is this Adam Lippes for Target Plaid Layering Duster. It is perfect for layering and a great piece to mix and match with all the fabulous Fall colors.


I love the length of it and the texture on the pockets is really fun. And kudos to a collaboration collection that includes quite a few plus size pieces. I would totally rock all of these looks.



What say you? Are you loving this collection?
