Jill Scott’s September Essence Cover Dress Available for $39!



When I posted the September 2014 Essence Cover with Jill Scott on facebook today, one of the first things my girls said was that they wished they could have a dress like that in an affordable price range. I did some research and this dress is more than affordable at $39!

The dress is by Ekineyo who makes a straight and plus size line. You can find the dress in a variety of colors too.

For those of us in the plus size dating game, this would be great for a night out on the town and I can see it in summer/winder seasons.

Lets support smaller designers!

Would you rock this dress?

Definitely never thought I’d throw on a bikini on the internet, but… the draping of this top is great for someone like me who is sensitive about her back fat. lol

I guess birthdays are for new beginnings, evolving and conquering fears :-) used to be,  so you can find some pieces on both sites:

What is a Swing Dress? | Plus Size Fashion | Summer Style


A modern swing dress is a flowy dress that still has an A-line shape. Instead of the top part of the “A” shape hugging your waist, it often will hug your chest and then the fabric will bell out from there. This gives the dress lots of movement potential…. the dress will “swing” when you walk or dance!

With a swing dress and two simple accessories, I was able to put together a dressy/comfy Saturday outfit that’s perfect to wear from a daytime bachelorette manicure party straight into an evening birthday dinner for one of Roberts friends. Easy Peasy!

If you hate wearing shape wear in the summer, these dresses are perfect. Also, depending on the fabric, you can make a swing dress casual or formal. I have some in cotton and denim. I ordered this plus size swing dress on ASOS, these Wide Width flats from Zappos, and snagged this Rebecca Minkoff bag in NYC.

What do you think of swing dresses? Would you/Could you/Have you put one on?
