Forever 21 generally goes up to a size 3X. They don’t have While I wish these clothes occupied a larger portion of their physical store, they have a lot of options of cute clothes to choose from online. Today’s video is going to show that.

These Plus Size Wrap Dresses From Forever 21 Plus Slay

plus size wrap dresses

Have you been looking for some plus size wrap dresses? I have. They have been my new obsession since I wore one to a wedding last year. A lot of people love how flattering they look. I like how comfortable they are. I also like how they make me look really curvy. I usually wear more fluid and loose things, but wrap dresses are tight at the top and loose on the bottom, so I can be sexy and comfy at the same time. I also don’t wear Spanx when I wear dresses like this because… I can’t stand tight things on my body and because the bottom of the dress just flows so freely.

TFAS Shop Tours-Witch Worldwide

Witch Worldwide

 

Witch WorldwideAre you ready to check out my first virtual shop tour featuring Witch Worldwide? I decided that I was going to do little virtual tours of stores that are either exclusively plus size or sell some plus size items. I think it is important to talk about these different stores because the plus size market has grown a lot since I first started blogging in 2009. There are a lot of different options available. While there still could be more options available, it is a start.

I am loving this shirt dress from Missguided.  This plus size shirt dress is a nice nude color, and is long enough to wear to work and sexy enough to wearafter work for cocktails with the girls. I also think it looks great for date night too. One of the things that I think is great about shirt dresses is the fact that you can tie them at the bottom and wear them with jeans, or tuck them into a skirt. This plus size shirt dress looks really great with these shoes and this purse.  Photo from Missguided.

Get Easy Boho Chic Style With Avenue

Boho Chic

Easy boho chic style is not hard to find at Avenue. They have a ton of great pieces for any occasion and style, but there boho chic pieces really caught my eye. They look so fun to wear, and they are very on trend with fashion today. I love when you can find some plus size clothes that fit today’s style instead of “new” plus size clothes that are seriously dated. Y’all know that is a pet peeve of mine. I really, really hate when certain plus size brands are behind the times. It is annoying. Anyway. These dresses that I found at Avenue are super cute and fun for the summer.

Eloquii does plus size shirt dresses like nobody else. Nobody translates current high-end designer trends quite like Eloquii. I always say this, but I am telling you the truth. If you look at Rosie Assouline, Christian Siriano, Miu Miu, Delpozo… you will see those same trends in the hottest pieces at Eloquii. I don’t know why they are able to do a better job at it than other plus size brands, but I applaude them. Seriously. As a plus size woman, one of the main things I want from  clothing brand is the latest trends. You know what I’m saying?! I don’t want the trends from two years ago, today.

plus size easter dresses
Easter is right around the corner, so I am currently looking for plus size Easter dresses to wear to church. My search has not been a good one. I found a dress at Old Navy today, but I am going to return it because it does not fit right. It also is a bit too sheer. I can see through the lining. I am not trying to have that kind of moment at church.

Rachel Roy launched her new plus size line, RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, at Macy’s and I lost it. While this line doesn’t feature each and every piece from her straight size collection, it does feature a good bit of them. We have been asking major fashion designers for years to make a line for us that has the same if not similar items as the main line, and she did it.

ASOS Curve Plus Size Work Pants
Where would we be without ASOS and ASOS Curve plus size work pants? I haven’t done a Currently Craving blog post in while and suddenly got inspired by a conversation in one of my favorite Facebook groups. The ladies of the groups were discussing how hard it is to find pantsuits and decent, professional looking workwear in general. If it is hard for straight size women to find decent workwear, imagine how hard it is for plus sized women. Cue ASOS.

Let the Fashion Trend Battle Begin:

NYFW Fall 2016 was a fierce battle with many trends fighting it out for the death. We have officially gone from have clear concrete trends to too many micro trends all at once. The main battle has been the same battle that has been going on for the past few seasons. The 90’s trends have been duking it out with the 70’s trend. There also seems to be battle between the minimalism of the Normcore trend that was big a few seasons ago and has its roots in the 90’s and some of the 1930’s glamour that helped influence the decadence of the 70’s.

The minimalism of the previous seasons are truly a thing of the past. Spring 2016 couture was truly decadent in nature. Even the most bland of garments had a little something extra going on. Many garments had low cut necklines, pajama dressing is still in, and flouncy chiffon and lace are still a favorite with extra beading in the mix.

Currently Craving: Eloquii Hits The Sweet Spot With New Collection

eloquii-sweet-spot-collection
Plus size retailer Eloquii hits the style spot with their newest collection called The Sweet Spot. It looks like something out of a Wes Anderson movie, and I am in love. This has to be my favorite Eloquii collection yet. It probably has something to do with my love of Wes Anderson movies. I think the other reason I like this collection so much is because it isn’t something that other plus size clothing companies are making, and it fits in more with my own personal style.
