A Dress To Impress

Happy Monday all!

I think I’ve found the perfect dress for that occasion when you want to “WOW” your significant other.  It can be a challenge for us over 40 gals to find a dress that flaunts our assets without showing our a**es! (lol)  A dress that screams “Yes I’m grown AND sexy!”.  Well look no more! IGIGI’s Ambrosia Dress in Noir Estate   has me out here looking and feeling just that!

Have a wonderful day!

Off Duty Style: Chic Layers

TGIF all!

I’ve always considered November as the beginning of layering season. The weather in September and October is too mild for multiple layers but once November hits, all bets are off.  Layering as plus size woman can be tricky because I  don’t want to add bulk. I’ve  completely given up at layering a shirt under a sweater. I can never get it right and I end up feeling like a stuffed turkey!  So since I have no option but to wear layers, I’ve turned to  cardigans to fit my needs.  I’ve been wearing them with a t-shirts, button ups and turtlenecks for added warmth without the bulk. It goes without saying, cardigans are super versatile and can be easily incorporated into your lifestyle.  To have more of a variety when shopping for cardigans, look for oversize, wrap and wide cut “straight” styles as they are very plus friendly. This wide cut cardigan from H&M is an M/L but fits my 18/20 frame quite comfortably.

What are some of your layering tricks during the late Fall/Winter?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fall Styling With Poppy & Bloom

Happy Hump Day all!

I was first introduced to Poppy & Bloom back in June during Full Figured Fashion Week’s Indie Designer Show.  What attracted me to them was their take on plus size work wear.  Often plus size work clothing is just a blazer and skirt but Poppy & Bloom offered cute flirty dresses with a vintage flair.  Their clothes are specifically made to flatter the plus size body.  One of Poppy & Bloom’s credo is “Life is too short to wear boring clothing” and I couldn’t agree more!

Poppy & Bloom was gracious to send me their VERY popular Corner Office A Line Dress in Red (which is currently on sale!).  The material while it provides stretch still maintains its structure. The dress  is true to size and is not  loose fitting.  The only drawback (for me) is the above the knee length. Y’all all know about me and my shelf booty issues so I have to wear tights  with it.  I can’t have all my goodies showing at work when I  bend over to pick something up! (LOL)  Otherwise the dress is perfect for work and can be dressed up for an after work event.

If you sign up for Poppy & Bloom’s mailing list, you’ll get an instant 15% off code to use! So head over to there and show them some love!

Have a wonderful day!

30 Plus Style: 50 Shades of Gray

Happy Thursday all!

30 Plus Style is back with another collaboration! This time we are taking on the color gray!   While gray is very big for the season it’s not a favorite of mine.  I guess it’s because Ive always associated it with cold, gloomy days.    So to get over my prejudice of gray, I dug into my closet and put together this outfit to highlight “50 Shades of Gray”!

Please check out the lovely ladies of 30 Plus Style and guest blogger Crystal from Sometimes Glam to see how they took on “50 Shades of Gray”!

Off Duty Style: Mad For Plaid

Happy Hump Day all!

Each Fall I look for a statement coat whether that be in color or in print. Unfortunately finding a statement coat can be  somewhat tricky because many retailers don’t equate plus size with fashionable  which is  frustrating.  I yearn for the day when dark colored  coats are not presented as the only options for us. Until that happens, retailers such as Eloquii, ASOS and Simply Be  have stepped up by offering coats in a variety of colors and prints.   Eloquii’s plaid coat is an example of this.  It’s instantly become the  statement coat  I’ve been looking for.  It’s roomy without being bulky and versatile which is important to me. Plus it’s in red plaid!!! YES!!!

What is your favorite statement coat?

Have a wonderful day!

Fall Styling With Foxcroft

Happy Monday all!

As I’ve said before, Fall is one of my favorite seasons. So when Foxcroft reached out to me to review some of their pieces from their Fall collection, I was more than happy to do so.   I’ve featured Foxcroft several times on the blog because they are ” … inspired by signature prints, vibrant colors and feminine shapes that celebrate her timeless sense of style. It was created for the confident woman who enjoys a casual but polished look and updates her wardrobe with versatile pieces in a classic fit that give her a beautifully clean silhouette.”  I think the description of the woman Foxcroft targets fits me and a number of plus size women perfectly.  I like clothing that will give me a clean, sophisticated look. Foxcroft’s clothing is well made and sustainable which is important for many of us. Plus their clothing is very versatile that can fit into many aspects of our busy lives.

I invite you to check out Foxcroft and see what they are all about. Right now  you can shop their  Friends & Family event from today until Oct. 31st where they are offering 40% off all merchandise! Now that’s a deal!

Have a wonderful day!
