Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day | Prabal Gurung x Lane Bryant Floral Skirt #PlusSizePick

Hey delights!

Lane Bryant is at it again with a collaboration with a high end designer, this time they have teamed up with Prabal Gurung.

The Prabal Gurung x Lane Bryant collection consists of 20 pieces that pretty much live in the red, black, white and blue lane and I am here for it. I love the florals and the stripes & I almost chose this striped cold shoulder sweater as my pick but I went with this gorgeous iris print full circle skirt. There is also a matching blouse, scarf and tee shirt in the collection.

The print screams Spring to me and I am so ready for it!

What say you? Are you loving this collection?

{Fashion} FTF x Essie & Kelly Capsule Collection

I love when brands are smart and partner with plus size bloggers to create collections. The latest to do so is Fashion to Figure with their FTF x Essie & Kelly Capsule Collection featuring blogger Kelly Augustine and blogger/model Essie Golden that just dropped.

The collection is all about holiday glam and features velvets, winter white, gold, shimmer and faux leather.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Laser Cut Faux Leather Jacket #PlusSizePick

Under the helm of Linda Heasley, Lane Bryant has definitely been mixing things up with a variety of limited edition curated collections and collaborations for their Fast Lane brand. Their latest is The Otis Collection, a collaboration with a team of design students at the LA Otis College of Art & Design.

The collection is a mix of drapey, flowy & textured pieces that are pretty neutral for the most part with pops of blue, grey and green.  My favorite piece from the collection is this laser cut faux leather jacket which should not come as a surprise because it is totally my style and I have similar jackets is other colors but none with the same laser cut vibe.

There is also a matching laser cut pencil skirt in the collection and here are some of the other pieces in the Otis Collection that I would totally rock.

{Chatting Curvatude} Emmicia, Eloquii + Extended Style

Last week Eloquii set off a plus size frenzy when they dropped their latest extended sizes lookbook featuring Emmicia Bracey. I personally was so excited when I opened my Eloquii email and saw her beautiful, smiling face that I had to get to know a little more about her.
Emmicia is 28 years old, 5'8'' tall and a size 28 & she was recruited to model for Eloquii via her friend, Ashley Falcon who happens to be a stylist for the brand. Anyway, I chatted with Emmicia last week and here is a bit of our conversation.


Plus Size {Fall Fashion} Pick of The Day: Zipped Faux Leather Pencil Skirt #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs!

Today's #PlusSizePick is this fabulous faux leather pencil skirt that I just got from Violeta by Mango.

Violeta by Mango Plus Size Faux Leather Pencil Skirt

Since the brand basically only goes up to a size 20 & I have found some pieces to be cut a bit on the small size, I have only purchased a few things from them but this skirt is definitely my favorite. You can get a look at it & a jacket I purchased last season in my #Vlogtober Day 1 video.

Violeta by Mango Faux Leather Pencil Skirt

It is a really gorgeous, green with a raised pebble effect that really gives it that supple leather vibe. I can't wait to rock it and I am thinking about getting it in the color they call navy that looks pretty purple-y online.

Stay tuned, this will definitely be showing up in multiple looks on le blog...

{What I Wore} And The Crop Top Rockin' Continues

Hey Fabs!

Actually the crop top rockin' has been more frequent then ever in recent weeks and the day before, the day of & the day after all of the O Mag crop top body policing business went down I was wearing one. Cést la vie. Deal with it body shamers!

Any way, I have had this cross hem stripe crop top and midi skirt for months & finally pulled them out for some street time.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: The $25 & Under Memorial Day Weekend Edition #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs! Happy Memorial Day Weekend! 

I don't recall when this new "tradition" of massive sales for Memorial Day weekend began but I am all for it and sharing a couple of the ones that I totally think are worth your time and money!

Eloquii has a sweet 25 items for $25 sale that includes these fabulous full pleat skirts in the most gorgeous colors. Here are two of my faves, the limeade and sparkling grape.

And of course ASOS is getting in on the action with 20% off full priced items. The amount and always on trend style of ASOS Curve and other plus size brands available on the site has made me a bonafide stan, so I always include them in my picks.

Since this is the unofficial start of summer, I have the beach on my mind and these two pieces are perfect as beach cover-ups.

What say you? Are you lovin' these pieces?


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Chevron Midi Skirt #PlusSizePick

And it has POCKETS! Triple WIN!

What say you? Are you lovin' on this skirt?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Modamix Collection @ Macy's #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies!

I have featured Modamix pieces before on le blog, here and here but I made them the #PlusSizePick of the day because the current pieces on sale at Macy's had me swooning and wanting to snatch them all off the racks.

I took some quick snaps on my phone and I am loving the vibrant colors, patterns, textures and the variety of styles available. I did snag a couple of pieces, so expect to see them here on le blog at some point.

Not everything in store is currently on the website but  this illusion stripe jacket and this gorgeous peachy rose perforated faux leather skirt both are and I love them!

What say you? Have you rocked Modamix?


{Fashion} Playing Dress Up With Gwynnie Bee New Arrivals

Hey Lovelies!

I have just returned from New York and while there I spent some time with my fam at Gwynnie Bee playing dress up and there are so many fabulous pieces coming for Spring and Summer!!

Here I am wearing a great peplum mesh top from Pink Clove and an anything but basic black MYNT 1792 skirt that in addition to the zipper you see, has some super sexy short horizontal zippers along the top on one side.

Gwynnie Bee Mynt 1792 Black Zip Skirt Pink Clove Peplum Floral Top

I wore the skirt like this to once again illustrate how great and multi-functional I have found the separates from Gwynnie Bee to be (see before here). So you can rock this look to work and change out (or tuck in and belt) the top and have the perfect look for going out after work.


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: 5 Wardrobe Staples From Violeta by Mango #PlusSizePick

This edition of the #PlusSizePick features one of the newer brands offering plus sizes, Violeta by Mango. And since I have been eager to try the brand out, their current up to 70% off sale seemed like the perfect time to do so.

There is a crazy amount of items up for grabs but I wanted to narrow down my selection of featured items to pieces that can easily be integrated into your wardrobe. And honestly doing so was really HARD!!!! I mean there really are A LOT of fab pieces.

If you missed snagging the Lauren Ralph Lauren dress, this red draped waist dress is a great alternative. And this contrast trim skirt can definitely be worn at the office or out to dinner. I chose this chest pocket crepe blouse because it's a classic fabric made a little less stuffy by the pockets, so yes, you can rock it for work but also on the weekend with your favorite jeans. And this cotton suit jacket and cotton suit pants of course come together to make the most basic of wardrobe staples but with a slightly edgier style to them.

Notes: The Violeta by Mango line runs in sizes 8-20 and since this is a newer brand offering plus sizes on top of being a non US brand you will really want to double check the sizing chart to make sure that you are ordering your correct size.

p.s I placed my order a few days ago and I was going to feature the jacket I purchased but it is already sold out, so if you see something you love in your size, you might want to order it ASAP!

What say you? Have you tried this brand?

{What I Wore} Casual Layered Miami Beach Style

When I booked the trip to Miami to celebrate my rugrat's 21st birthday, the weather was predicted to be in the 80's so I planned a casual wardrobe that consisted mainly of simple dresses & seperates.

As with my previous Miami style post, I am wearing pieces from Rebdolls, a two piece crop set to be exact under a split maxi t-shirt dress and my fav new shoes, my white perforated mules from Shoedazzle. (You can check this look out in motion here on my instagram page)


{Rock} Winter White + Gold Valentine's Day Style

Hello Lovelies! 

Look two of my Valentine's Day style feature is as promised,
completely different from look one, the rocker chic vibe.

I felt very "The Lady Loves Couture" in this look. Both my faux fur capelet & zipper pencil skirt are from AnnaFesta, an independent brand that I have featured before (herehere & here).


{Rock} Rocker Chic: Sequins, Fringe + Floral Valentine's Day Style

Although they are of course the ultimate in sweet and power colors, my idea of the perfect Valentine's Day looks doesn't consist of pink or red.

In line with what is becoming my tradition, I am once again sharing Valentine's Day looks that aren't necessarily traditional and which are actually on two completely different fashion spectrums.

First up is a little rocker chic featuring several of my favorite things, leather, sequins & florals.

I gotta add that my kid and I fought for these shots. I mean really. There were moments when we would lose the sun or the flash was too much or not enough and other issues like being surrounded by snow on every side. It's really challenging to find places to shoot outdoors in the winter at times.

So we spent a LOT of time working to get good shoots and because these were so hard won, I am posting way more pictures than I normally do!! Shout out to my rugrat for fighting with me!!

{Shopping} The Best Plus Size Holiday Sales | Fashion To Figure #NaBloPoMo

I own several pieces from Fashion To Figure (including the fab skirt in this post) and one of the things that I love about the brand is that they are always spot on when it comes to the latest trends.

Another thing I like is that while trends are fun, they come and go, so I don't really want to pay a lot for them and Fashion To Figure has them at really great price points.

So online shop #2 in my The Best Plus Size Holiday Sales series is Fashion To Figure. (You can check out my picks from the first shop, Eloquii, here.)

They have been hosting a week long black Friday sale leading up to a sweet 40% OFF DEAL today!

Here are some of the pieces that I love...


{Shopping} The Best Plus Size Holiday Sales | Eloquii #NaBloPoMo

Of course almost all your favorite blogs will have lists and lists of sales happening over the course of the next few weeks but I have decided that instead of massive lists, I will once again show you a few things that I am loving from some of my favorite shopping grounds.

Up first is ELOQUII

And today they are having a fabulous 50% OFF almost EVERYTHING SALE*
and it is not to be missed!

There are so many gorgeous things to be had but here is a short list of some of the

{Fashion} Must Have: June Ambrose Faux Leather Maxi Skirt #NaBloPoMo

Note: I finally rocked this beauty and it is everything I hoped it would be! Pics soon!

I own a lot of faux leather in a lot of colors from white to grey to light blue to printed to black and lots of colors in between but when I saw this June Ambrose Faux Leather Maxi Skirt in neutral, I just had to have it. It comes in black but I already own several faux leather skirts in black and the neutral is just so AWESOME!

It is so friggin well made. The faux leather is a nice heavy weight that will be great for these cooler months and it is partially lined. AND it has pockets!!!!! YASS! I can not wait to ROCK it!

Unfortunately it currently appears to only still be available in sizes 4 -16 but they may restock it and if you can wear one of those sizes (or know someone who would love it who does - it is the holiday season after all), I highly recommend that you snatch this fab faux leather skirt up.

It is also currently on sale for 20 bucks less than I paid & free shipping
 (sideeye) but a good deal for you AND you can also get 20% off a $50+ purchase w/code 143694


{Fab Five} Plus Size Pieces To Love @ Century 21

The last time I wrote about Century21 I highlighted some of the Marina Miraldi pieces that they had, which was pretty much some of the first plus size pieces that they listed online.

This time around, there are quite a few more brands and styles available and here are five that I love...

This Premise Studio Striped Cardigan (comes in 2 colors) would be perfect dressed up or down. I would definitely belt it to mix things up a bit.

This MODAMIX Plus Size Laser Cut Skirt looks incredibly rich and I really have become a fan of laser cut pieces

And it doesn't get more classic than a nice pair of Levi's. These are currently over 50% off.

And I love this Voyage by Marina Miraldi Cape Sweater and the big cable knit vibe.

Another fav in faux leather is the perforated style and this MODAMIX Plus Size Faux Leather Trim Sheath Dress does it in a unique, fun way.

Do you shop Century 21? 

I always say I am going to go in to one of the locations when I am in NYC but it rarely happens, so I am glad that they are expanding their plus size options more and more online.

I also snagged three pairs of DVF sunnies from them at a crazy discount, a few months back and I love them. I am rocking a pair here.
