When you want a show stopping look always go for sequins and fur. It’s an instant conversation starter!

Don’t be a Layer Hater


I swear sometimes I have the silliest fashion fears. Although I love the look of layering on other girls, I always thought that too many layers would make me look “bulkier” because I’m plus size. Of course, when I actually tried layering I realized that this is one of my favorite plus size casual looks! I’m not a Layer Hater anymore….

The trick for layering plus size sweaters for me is not being afraid to buy baggy sweaters. Once I have a thick baggy sweater (ponchos work well) I use more curve hugging turtlenecks and tanks underneath. As the temps drop, I layer a colorful plus size coat under a look like this and I’m good to go!

Here are some adorable sweaters and ponchos that are perfect for layering plus an affordable 3-pack of plus size turtlenecks in different colors.

All Leather Everything!


How to Wear Plus Leather CollageI always felt like leather was too daring of a fabric and would call attention to my body in the “wrong ways” whatever that means. This season, I got a little daring and ordered two leather items. A Plus Size Leather Dress and Plus Size Leather Leggings… and I’m in love!

I wear this look to work often. Because the dress is cut in a modest A-line it manages to still feel office appropriate and transitions well from day to night. Throwing a cardigan over this dress seemed to obvious, so instead I chose to put a simple denim shirt underneath.

I pretty much wear leggings and a sweater as much as I can during the winter– this is just an amped up version of that. This thick cable knit sweater and leather legging combo is perfect for anything from an event to hanging with my girlfriends.

I like to pair my leather with fabrics that are less striking. Denim and knit fabrics are an easy way to balance out the boldness of leather, while still feeling like I’m taking a little fashion risk. Sprinkling leather pieces into my closet is lots of fun– here are some other plus size leather items (both real and faux) that I have my eye on (click the images for discounts and pricing). How do you girls feel about wearing leather?

12 Colorful Plus Size Coats!


I said brrrrr its cold out here and this California girl is not ready.

This year, I decided that instead of a boring black coat, I wanted something bright to keep me feeling happy, festive and warm. Of course the majority of plus size coats I saw in stores were dark and drab, but I was able to go online and round up 12 cute colorful plus size coats for us (okay, maybe a little more than 12 lol).

I’ve ordered a camel coat, a grey coat and this adorable green coat that’s super warm with deep pockets and a hood. Special shout out to Nicolette Mason, who designed a chic pink coat for Modcloth.

When it comes to sizing for a coat, my general rule of thumb is to go one size up from my dress size. So, if you’re a size 20 in dresses, I’d advise ordering a size 22 coat. This allows for thick sweaters underneath and easy movement in any coat that we order online. So far, doing my sizing that way has been perfect for any brand I choose!

Plus Size Fall Essentials: Ralph Lauren


Earlier this year I purchased my first Lauren Ralph Lauren plus size dress and I’ve been inspired by the plus size line ever since.

This fall Lauren Ralph Lauren has some adorable plus size houndstooth like this sweater, which I’ve been wearing every chance I get with jeans, with leggings and with little skater skirts (I even wore it in yesterday’s YouTube video).

A sweater like this is perfect for me when I’m getting dressed at the gym after a morning workout. These pieces are wrinkle free, easy to pack in my gym bag, effortless but still put together. I got lots of compliments at work and felt great! I ordered some other Fall essentials from Lauren Ralph Lauren, which you’ll see soon, below are my favorite items read more..
