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.
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.
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.
Usually when I do a Currently Craving post I showcase one item and one item only. Very rarely do I showcase a bunch of items from one store, but I have been really loving the items that Forever 21 Plus has put out this fall. Maybe it is because I love fall and winter fashion more…IDK?
Have you been checking out British retailer New Look lately? I bought a few things from their Inspire line a few years ago, and then forgot about them. I don’t know why. They have cute plus size clothes at very affordable prices and wide width shoes. After listening to the panelists at The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo, I decided to hop back on the site. I am still loving their clothes, shoes, and prices. One of them things that I found was this uber cute, uber now suedette skater skirt. 70s boho chic is in right now, and this skirt embodies that look without going full boho. Sidenote: I am a fan of the boho look, but in moderation. This skirt is perfect to wear now, and it is super perfect to wear later with some tights and boots or chunky platform heels during the fall. The price is 19 British pounds which should be about 32 Us Dollars. You can’t beat that!
Charlotte Russe Plus came out a few months ago. I looked at the clothes, thought they were cute, and then forgot about them because life got hectic and what not. Now I am back. I saw a skirt on Garner Style’s Facebook page and thought I better take another look at this line. Charlotte Russe’s plus size section is really cute. I really love some of the basics and jumpsuits that they have on the site. I haven’t seen this collection in stores yet. If you have, let me know what you think about it below.

The line features pants, tops, outerwear, and even swimsuits in that hot neon tropical Miami style that is super popular right now! The pieces are moderately priced and are UK sized 18-26. I think that should be a US 14-22. Photos from One One Three.

Another day another holiday gift guide. This time I had to hook the plus size gals up! I added a few items from clothes to underwear to accessories, shoes, and jewelry. Everything is $150 or less so you don’t break the bank too much. Just like yesterday’s holiday gift guide for men, some of these items are already on sale. I hope you enjoy.
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.
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.
