1st Anniversary; Day Trip #2

Hey Loves,

You all know I recently celebrated 1 year with my guy. So he planned an amazing couple of day trips for our weekend together. If you checked out my last post you know we made a stop at Brotherhood Winery for wine tasting & dinner. He knew that wine tasting was something I always wanted to do. So our next trip was just as awesome.

20 Plus Size Coats Under $200

Hey Loves,

As the weather gets cooler and cooler (particularly for my loves in cold states) Adding a great coat to your wardrobe is a must. I personally get a new coat every year. Not on purpose, but either way I still rock all my coats. Being from Jersey it starts to get seriously cold around this time of the year. So I know I need to be prepared. And I figured I can't be the only one out here needing a new coat. So I rounded up 20 awesome plus size coats from different brands all under $200.

Cacique Lifestyle Store Grand Opening

Hey Loves,

If you follow me on Instagram & Facebook, you know that the other day me and my blogger boo Meaghan of Little Lime Dress hosted the grand opening of the brand new Cacique Lifestyle Store. I was thrilled when the Lane Bryant team asked if I wanted to host. But after this experience grateful would be an understatement It is located in the Newport Centre Mall in Jersey City, NJ. Honestly this store is nothing short of AMAZING.

Long Tall Sally Announces Capsule Collection

Hey Loves,
This post is for my tall girls. Long Tall Sally who is the global leader in fashion for tall woman has teamed up with British clothing line Taller than you Average to create a fashion forward capsule collection for the 5'8 & up girl. This was the brain child of Irene Agbontaen; standing 5'11 she knows the struggle of not having jeans that are long enough. Or shirts with sleeves that always seem to be an inch or so too short.

Fall Selfie

Forever 21 shirt, jacket, Anne Klein skirt
Hey Loves,

Fall is officially here in Jersey. Which you all know excites me soul. I'm in the process of making the transition from my summer wardrobe to my fall wardrobe and it's quite fun. Like most plus size bloggers, Fall for me starts with my skirts, and moto jackets. So it should come as no surprise that I'm rocking both in this look. The skirt is from Anne Klein that I purchased from Lord & Taylor. It was the only size 16 in the rack so it was clearly fate. Right?!

ATGC on the Scene; Isabel Toledo Party

Hey Loves,

A Couple weeks ago (I know I'm sooooo late) I had the esteemed pleasure to run elbows & even speak with the brilliant fashion designer Isabel Toledo. You all should know by now that I am a huge fan of her work. And especially since she has her collaboration with Lane Bryant the plus size woman never has to worry about being chic & fashionable.

Isabel Toledo is just a fascinating woman. I had the chance to speak with her for a bit. It was breath of fresh air to speak with a designer that really made a choice to understand the women that shop her clothing. Keep reading to see my interview with this amazing woman.
