Plus Size Dresses with Sleeves: Where Are You? | Fashion | OOTD


Has anyone else noticed that 90% of plus size dresses are sleeveless?

I can’t help but wonder if we are always wearing cardigans because no one will put sleeves on our dresses… or if designers know plus size princesses are cardigan obsessed, so they don’t even bother to give us sleeves.

Either way, its annoying… give us sleeves, please!

Anyway, last week we spoke about how cardigans are an easy trap for PSP’s. I’ve been really been trying to avoid wearing cardigans as an outfit staple, which means the hunt for dresses with sleeves has begun.

I ordered this dress from GwynnieBee (the Netflix of plus size clothing) they’re offering a 30 day free trial here.


My Forever 21 Plus Size Shopping Trip… Plus Size Body Con | Retro | Long Maxi's


The only Forever 21 store with plus sizes is in Times Square, which means I had to navigate through a naked cowboy, spider man and people dressed up as sesame street characters just to shop! (side note: the elmo on 41st street really needs to deep condition and comb out his fur).

Anyway, I made it into the store and found some cute stuff so I shot a new Dressing Room Confidential video. Many of the dresses are online here if you want to avoid the times square circus.

Let me know your thoughts, the girls on YouTube loved the black maxi that I tried on even though I HATED it… lol

What do you think of the pieces?

Dressing Room Confidential: Plus Size Shopping at MACYS


Last weekend I went to Macy’s to see if they had anything on the 7th floor where the plus sizes live.

I tried on some Michael Kors and Calvin Klein pieces along with some more affordable items from INC and American Rag (who is definitely bringing back a 1990′s trend) If you see me sporting big sunflowers and carrying a baby backpack, you’ll know why…

Shopping Tip: If you go shopping at the Macy’s on 34th street, hit up the visitors center and show your out of state/out of country ID. They’ll give you a 15% off coupon that’s good for three days!

The piece I loved the most was over $300 which is not in my budget right now, but there were a few other items that were cool… let me know which pieces you like?

My Favorite Plus Size Lingerie & Plus Size Corsets | Valentines Day 2014


Quick side note – I was thinking about doing a Curvy Yoga party on 2/15/2014… Save the Date!

Now, on to my Vday picks….Plus Size Lingerie Plus Size Valentine

Before I got boo’d up, I would purchase sexy plus size bras and stick them in the back of my drawer with a deep “I can’t wait till I get a boyfriend” sigh. One day, the light bulb went off and I realized I could wear flirty plus size pajamas, cute plus size underwear and maybe even a plus size corset or two even if I was single! Why? Because I love them and I love the way they make me feel.

I keep a pretty good collection of plus size lingerie and Valentines day is when I stock up. Here are a few of my favorite pieces for 2014:

plus size babydoll with underwire

Plus Size BabyDoll with Underwire

A requirement for my babydolls is that they have under wire… I need to make sure my DDD’s are right where they’re supposed to be.

Corset Back Mod Cloth Plus Size

Plus Size Corset | Plus Size Panties

Corsets are so much fun and can be worn under your date night dress if you want to skip shape wear…

plunge bra

Plus Size Push Up Bra | Plus Size Lace & Satin Panty

Lunaire Sevilla Embroidered Demi Bra and Tanga

Sheer Plus Size Bra | Sheer Plus Size Panty

Of course, I can always keep it simple with a bra/panty set

…Where do you girls shop for +size lingerie?


Preppy & Prepping for Spring | Plus Size Fashion


*Yawn* My winter style has me bored.

This polar vortex is forcing me to dress for function more than fashion so I feel like I’m in an endless rotation of black tights, boots and big coats. Augh.

To fight the winter fashion blues, I went shopping at my apartment… never underestimate what you might find by shopping in your own closet. I took one of my favorite spring dresses and layered it with a thick cable knit sweater. The cool/rich colors were exactly what I needed to shake things up.

A few of you asked for my outfit details on my Instagram… links are below!

The preppy style and bright colors was exactly what I needed. I finished the look off with a fresh bright manicure during the the SimplyBe Spring 2014 launch event.
