NYFW Spring Summer 2017 Looks I Wish Were Made In Plus Sizes

NYFW Spring Summer 2017

NYFW Spring Summer 2017Hey ya’ll! It’s that time again where I post pictures of clothes that I wish were made in plus sizes. Actually I was on Fashionista’s website where I saw these pictures, and thought to myself how some of these pieces could be translated to plus sizes. I always seem to do that.  The last time I did this post, I talked about denim styles. This time we are focusing on NYFW Spring Summer 2017 looks from fashion week last week.My fashion designer side and my fashion stylist side are thinking of all the ways I can make these outfits happen for myself, my clients, and my readers. The first looks up are from Coach, Monse, and DvF. I love these looks. I think they are fun and flirty and very fancy. I think I could see quite a few plus size girls rocking these looks.

Watching Ashley Nell Tipton Work Is Inspring Me

Ashley Nell Tipton

Ashley Nell Tipton
Watching Project Runway’s Ashley Nell Tipton working on her clothing line with JCPenney is more than inspiring….IT IS AMAZING. I can only hope to be in her shoes one day, or at least have the opportunity to work with and collaborate on a clothing line with a brand that I love or look up to.  I have been working on my plus size clothing line since last year. It can get very frustrating because I am doing everything myself, and I am working on a limited budget. If I could get a team together like this….you all wouldn’t be able to tell me anything! I also took a little break from working on things because I felt like I was doing too much. I was trying to do every idea that popped into my head, and I got overwhelmed. Then my fit model moved a few hours away. 🙁 Thank God I learned the lesson on to how to walk away from something and come back to it when I am more than ready.

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.

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.

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.

Currently Craving ASOS Curve Plus Size Work Pants

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.

wide calf boots
Finding great fitting wide calf boots is hard. Very, very hard. Luckily for us gals with wide calves, there are a lot more options out there than years before. Stores like Eloquii, Avenue, Ashley Stewart, and Lane Bryant are giving us options to two step in. Literally! I have never seen so many options for wide calves every! Another thing that I like about all of these options is that a lot of these boots are now coming in wide calf, wide feet or extra wide calf, extra wide feet. I had a hard time finding wide calf boots that would fit my equally wide foot. The fact that companies are making that kind of option now is amazing!
