Currently Craving- Wide Calf Boots

Wide Calf Boots
Wide Calf Boots1. Fabiola Wide Calf Boot, $39.95 ($59.95 – VIP Price), JustFab      2. Women’s Ryder Riding Boot, $49.99 (regular price is $59.99), Payless  3. Campbell Two Tone Riding Boot, $84.00 (on sale for $69.99), Avenue  4.Clean Riding Boot, $79.95,(on sale for $47.97) , Lane Bryant

As plus-size women, we struggle with a lot of ill-fitting clothing and accessories. Not to mention the struggle of finding wide calf boots during the fall and winter months. I am writing this post with compassion, because I too am affected by this problem. With boots being a fall fashion must-have, it is kind of hard to be without them. Below. I have written a few tips that will help you find wide calf boots as well as the best places to find these boots within your specific price range.

How to Find Wide-Calf Boots:

  • When looking for boots that fit for wider calves, look for elastic material that is embedded in the shoe’s material. The elastic makes the boot fit perfectly around your calf. However, if you do not like elastic material, some stores and/or online retailers, like Payless, carry boots that are made specifically for wide calves. Payless, for example, labels the shoes “Extended Calf Wide” and they go up to a size 13 online!

To Die For- Three Plus Size Sweaters To Buy This Fall

plus size sweaters

This week I found three plus size sweaters to buy this fall. Now is the time to buy so you can be prepared for the first little chill. Each one of these sweaters features a fall trend – ombre, animal print, minimalistic color-blocking! My favorite has to be the ASOS CURVE Ombre Open Knit Sweater for $67.50. I am also partial to the Women’s Plus Color Block Tunic Sweaters from Old Navy for $43.94. Those sweaters come in two colors. The one above is the neutral sweater and the other one is red.

The Animal Heart Sweater from Lane Bryant is regularly $59.95 and super cute to boot. I can imagine myself wearing that sweater with my new flare skirt. I’m telling you to buy these three plus size sweaters now because this weekend will be full of Labor Day sales! Lane Bryant even has a code (LDAY40LB) for 40% off the Animal Heart Sweater above. Old Navy has 30% off with code SPREE. I will be sure to update this space with the code from ASOS when I find it out. They do have a sale on their sale items right now that is up to 70%, so jump on that. Photos from the store mentioned above.

Shoe of the Week- Lane Bryant Zip and Buckle Boot

Shoe of the WeekLane Bryant Zip & Buckle Boot

Lane Bryant’s Zip & Buckle Wide Calf Boot is the perfect plus size boot. I am so glad that companies are starting to make cuter wide calf boots because I have a wide calf. The struggle to find cute boots that fit is real, and it sucks. Luckily for me, Lane Bryant has some options. They have about five wide calf boots on their website right now and they are all priced at $79.95. Get you a piece. Photo from Lane Bryant.

SOOOOO PISSED!!!

So I am really angry with Fox and ABC. If you haven’t heard already, they censored the Lane Bryant lingerie ad from their channels. Now don’t I see that Victoria’s Secret Naked ad playing all over the place, but place a fat girl in a bra and some panties and all hell breaks loose.  Do you think the networks were wrong? And can someone tell me the difference between the two ads besides the size of the models.
