Searching for a plus size bralette…Well I found them at Torrid. Actually there are a ton of stores out there selling them since fashion hopped on the plus size bralette trend. Women everywhere are wearing them now. I was afraid to wear them because I, like many plus size women, are full-chested. The thought of me wearing a bralette without support was low key frightening, but I did it and now I’m back to tell you what I bought.
Halloween costumes are fun, sexy, cute, and for everyone. There are so many option and websites. Making this blog post made my head spin. If you are straight sized or plus sized , you will probably be able to find something you like. The possibilities are endless. I was able to find cute costumes from Halloween Express, Hips & Curves, Target, and Torrid. Be sure to check out Simon Doonan’s, Barney’s creative director, Halloween Costume collection for Target. I am not really the sexy costume type so I tend to wear safer costumes. I am thinking about being a sailor, but I’m not so sure. What are you going to be? Also check out Viva La Qbee’s Halloween makeup tips.
Leather has been around forever and every season the ultra-fabric reinvents itself with trendy fashion pieces. I’m a huge fan of leather, I adore it. It’s cute, comfortable, sexy and damn vicious. Everyone looks good in leather. The only pitfall I and many others have with leather is it derivation from animals. Since many animal rights advocates oppose leather, fashion designers and labels have been using faux leather to create the same looks as high-priced genuine leather. Don’t be ashamed to wear faux leather. It’s wallet-friendly, it’s ethical and it’s just as hot and sexy as genuine leather.

Check out these low end/high end alternatives from the Torrid website. I found them while trying to surf their rush hour $19.99 bootie sale last week. I also had a recent convo on twitter with Garner Style about knockoffs. I sit on the fence when it comes to knockoffs. I also truly believe in the trickle down/ trickle up theory of fashion. That means that fashion either comes from the Haute Couture and moves down into the masses or moves from the street upward.I also realize that people want to look good and have the latest threads but may not be able to afford or fit in them, so they get the knockoff version.
The thing I don’t like is a blatant copy. Change the buckle, make it in a different color, respect the designer’s hard work, and don’t make these goods in sweatshops where the money goes to drugs or terrorism. I once read a report where the boss of a factory broke the legs of the children who worked there and then tied their legs together so they couldn’t move. Why would you want to support something like this? So think twice before you buy a fake bag out of Auntie Kiki’s car at the gas station.
That being said, I believe that these Dollhouse shoes are apart of the trickle down theory. I hope so, because they are really cute and I want a pair.
