Plus Size fashion is my passion. Check out my weekly posts on where to find plus size clothes in NYC, Plus Size Outfits of the Day, follow me inside the dressing room and watch my regular plus size fashion look book videos! Like my style? You can also shop my closet!
When I moved to NYC from California, the only coat I could find in my size was a boxy blue peacoat. It was hideous and made me feel like a boy when I wore it. I am so glad those days are over and there are more options for cute, trendy, stylish plus size coats *praise hands emoji*
This year, I’m all about coats in classic colors and coats with beautiful collars.
Once winter hits, my coat is the outfit I wear the most, so I like to have a few options and I make them good, here’s my 2015 round up of six trendy plus size coats.
Before we jump into today’s post, have you heard that theCURVYcon is coming back for 2016? There’s a private pre-sale starting tomorrow and its exclusively for CurvyVIP’s
CLICK HERE TO BECOME A CURVYVIP! For this look book, I threw together a few easy looks with some of the new fall plus size fashion items that I’m loving. This is a Saturday brunch look for me. Something super relaxed, cute and cozy. This sweatshirt is cut a little shorter than I expected so instead of looking like Whinnie the Pooh, I layered a denim button down under it. I’d also tuck this sweatshirt into a skirt for a more vintage look. These ankle booties are everything! Easy to wear, great color… perfect! Sweatshirt: Eloquii | Denim Shirt: Talbots | Jeans: Torrid | Booties: SimplyBe This is a simple look for when I have to take meetings. It’s classic and the pencil skirt is 100% stretchy so it doesn’t feel restrictive! I’d also rock this look with wide calf boots! Turtle Neck: Lane Bryant | Houndstooth Skirt: FTF | Black Heels: SimplyBe I’m giving culottes a try this season too. When it gets super cold, I’ll put fishnets or textured tights underneath them. I rarely wear all black, but this simple look would be perfect for dinner. The grey coat made me feel like a had a subtle pop of color without going the obvoius red/pink direction like I normally would, ya know?

I’m happy to share with you that I officially have a book project in the works!
So many of you have been encouraging me to write a book based on this blog and now it’s happening.
This book project will not happen overnight, but it is happening.
It’s actually a little early in the game for me to share this with you, but I’m spilling the beans early for three very specific reasons.
Don’t Bang on Locked Doors: There was a time when I thought a book was the next logical step for me; during that time I pitched my book idea and I got turned down… a lot! So I put that idea on pause, I worked on other dreams (#PSPfit, theCURVYcon, my YouTube channel). I began making plans to self-publish a book in 2016 and after I wrote “publish book” down as part of my plan for the year, this opportunity popped into my email inbox. I stopped banging on locked doors, shifted my focus to other dreams and now the very same doors that were locked to me are opening up with ease.
If you have a dream/vision for yourself and it isn’t happening right away, its okay to place it on the back burner while you chase after other passions. Sometimes it’s just about timing.
Thank You: The only reason I considered taking Plus Size Princess and creating a book is because you guys suggested it over and over in emails and comments. So, thank you for pushing and encouraging me! The Fun Part: I have the freedom to write anything I want, so I want this book to be for us. If you tell me what you’d like to see in the book, I can make it happen (!!!). So, leave a comment with topics you think I should cover and then join my free PSP Squad facebook group so we can keep chatting and stay in touch more. There’s already some great ideas being tossed around in there, I’m so excited!! You can watch today’s video for the full story and more details:
It is finally boot season, and I’ve already added a few beauties to my collection.
Boots are a versatile way to keep your fall fashion fresh. I pair mine with form fitting dresses, I tuck my jeans into them and I wear them with full flirty skirts.
If you’ve got thick solid legs like I do, you may need a little extra room in the calf area but thankfully there are some really great wide calf boot styles out right now. Here’s a quick round-up of eight gorgeous wide calf boots that I’m loving right now.
