Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the invites for holiday parties have started coming in. Do you have something to wear? Plus size holiday dresses are getting cuter and cuter. I found a few, plus a jumpsuit, that I thought were to die for.

AWW SNAP!! UK brand Missguided adds plus sizes to their site, so that #babesofallsizes can get some great fashion. A lot of the UK brands have really good plus size lines. I don’t know what is going on in the US market. It seems like we have to rely on the UK brands and indie plus size designers. Missguided + is a line that I think trendy, fashion forward plus size shoppers will love.
FTC: I was given this Lumia phone to try for a trial period of three weeks and a $200 gift card. This is an honest review.
Microsoft Lumia gave me one Lumia phone and $200 to spend on clothes for this style challenge. Luckily for me, a lot of the stores were having exceptional Veteran’s Day sales. SCORE!!
UK brand boohoo lands in NYC for a pop up shop in Soho for two weeks. You have ample time to see the brand in person if you are in the tri-state area. I wish I was in the city right now so I could go shop the pop up shop. Y’all know I love me some Boohoo. If you can’t make the pop up shop, head on over to boohoo.

I just wanted to bring you this fall plus size fashion video with pieces from Boohoo and DSW. This is kind of a Halloween inspired video with the orange and black colors. This outfit was really fun to wear.
I recently got some wide calf boots from DSW that actually fit my calf muscles. Color me surprised. When I see a boot labeled wide calf in the store, they don’t usually fit. I get really skeptical when I see the label on boots because of that. However… When I went to DSW there were a ton of boots to pick from. Some fit and some didn’t, but the ones I bought look fantastic.
I am loving this new fall collection from Eloquii. They are calling it Rebel Yell and it was a grunge look to it with all of the plaids and ripped jeans. They also have some really great looking sweaters in this collection too! Eloquii really has been on the move lately. They just put new suits and tights on their website.

I know I am late to the party-preparing for finals y’all, but I had to post this. The Design Collective for Evans S/S15 fashion show was the first time a plus size retailer had shown at London Fashion Week, and that is big news. I mean they literally made history. A lot of the clothes in this collection are super cute. I love the colors, the laser cut skirts, the fabrics that went from really sheer to really solid. I can’t wait to see how they translate this to their website next season.
Here is a little more info for you:

Here is my video of my new fall pieces from Ashley Stewart. I am no model, but I tried to show you the different ways to wear the skirt, shirt, and sweaters. The Skirt is $34.50 and has ruching down the side. The shirt has a removable jewelry piece at the neckline, is quilted, and is also $34.50. *SIDE NOTE- This top is fitted, so it you want a looser fit, order a size up. The sweaters or cardis are both $29.50 and felt warm on the chilly day that I shot my video in the shade.
I adore the pre-fall fashion in Eloquii’s new August lookbook. Prints and patterns are something that I think Eloquii does a great job of. Just because you are plus sized, that doesn’t mean you can have fun with color, shapes, prints, and patterns. There is a dress and a pair of pants in this lookbook that are calling my name y’all. I listed a few of my fave pieces down below. Photos from Eloquii. View the rest of the lookbook here.

ASOS SALON for Curve is now on the site and it is gorgeous. They basically designed a vintage inspired, heavy embellished special occasion line that is perfect for summer weddings and other parties. I love the pastel colors and vintage feel. These are the types of things that I would look for a t a vintage bazaar. You can find all of the collection here.

So, last week I spoke with my fellow plus size ladies about shorts, and how to wear them, regardless of how they think they may look in them. This week, I’m going to get you all into dresses! I know that if you won’t wear shorts, you won’t wear a dress either, but hopefully that’s all going to change, right?
This week’s currently craving items are Fashion to Figure dresses. You’ve never heard of Fashion to Figure? No worries that is what I’m here for. Fashion to Figure is an affordable fashion retailer that is changing the way sizes 12-26 dress! There are several physical locations; hopefully one of them is near you!
There are so many dresses to choose from, however, I’m just going to choose my favorite four! Starting from the top left to the bottom right, we have:

Most plus size women are afraid to wear shorts because of how their legs and/or thighs may look in them (don’t worry, I’ll add in a few shorts that aren’t so short). However, with the spring season in full effect and summer not too far behind, it’s time to get over your fear of shorts; if not be prepared to die from a heatstroke! (Just kidding!)

You would never believe which fashion trend has made a comeback! Hint: the title of the article is a dead give-away. Overalls are slowly making their way back into some of our closets, some since summer of 2012. Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna, who decided to shoot her ‘You Da One’ music video wearing overalls back in December 2011. Since then, more designers and retailers are trying to keep the “back in the day” trend alive.
