Currently Craving: Crop Tops – Plus Size

Crop Top Post - FinishedThis week’s currently craving item are plus size crop tops! Crop tops are a trend that all plus size women should at least try. I am thinking of purchasing one myself just to see how I feel in it before I purchase more than one. With the rise of plus size designers, there are a lot of options for us, however, they sell out of the items fast! Below, I will list a few designers as well as retailers that carry crop tops for us plus size women.

Before purchasing, please keep in mind:

–          If you aren’t comfortable showing your stomach, you can always layer it with a[n] [open] cardigan, blazer/jacket; so that only a bit of skin is showing.

–          You can wear it under a sheer blouse.

–          You can pair the crop top with a high-waisted skirt, pants, or the matching bottoms, if available.

These four crop tops, one is actually a dress, are rule breakers for us curvy girls! Who said curvy girls can’t be stylish too? We’ll start from the top left to the bottom right!

3. JIBRI Plus Sized Crop Long Sleeved T-Neck – $80.00

4. Briana Cap Sleeved Crop Top – Barely There – $60.00; Rue 107

Spring’s Trends on a Budget

Ahhh, spring is near. The sun is a little brighter, the grass is a little greener, and the scent of fresh blooms is in the air. It’s officially time to transition your closet from heavy winter garb to light spring frocks. But if you’re like me, you want to pinch your pennies this spring, because maybe you’re saving for a fabulous spring break trip, or you have tons of weddings to go to (like me). I’m going to share three of my favorite trends for spring — and show you how to get the looks for less!

Spring Fashion Trends 2009 Take 3

I’ve got more Spring 2009 fashion tips out there for you. Remember when I said nudes, pastels, blacks, whites, and light, floaty colors were in? Well they still are, but this spring is going to be the spring of contradiction. Bright, bold colors are also in. One-shouldered, body conscious, wrapped (not banded) dresses are in for the spring. If you need a hint, just look at Alexander Wang or Balmain for Spring 2009 to get a hint. You also need to be on the lookout for ripped jeans in all kinds of colors, tints, and dyes. Something that is going to be big is the trend of shopping your own closet or swapping with a friend. That is something smart fashionistas do.

More Spring 2009 Fashion Trends

Like I said before, there are entirely too many trends to count for this coming spring, but as usual, the overachiever in me wants to bring you another Polyvore chock full of trends. Let’s recap shall we? There are going to be ruffles, plenty of pastels to go around, tailored jackets, structured shoes, and jeans, jeans, and more jeans. Now I want to tell you about the other trends that are going to be out there in the streets because I know some of you do not like the airy, floaty side of spring. This one is for my rocker, glamour, glitzy chicks. Black and white were also big colors for spring. You are going to want to buy caged heels and sandals. I saw a pair at Bebe that were so cute. A lot of their shoes look strangely similar to some that I know I saw on a few big named designers’ runways. *wink wink* Anyway moving on. You also might want to be on the look out for big mini skirts (oxymoron huh), rhinestones, platform shoes, sheer fabrics, satin and silky fabrics, jumpsuits, and unfortnately for the people who will try these and fail miserably, HAREM PANTS!
