Fashion Tip| Shop Your Closet

Hey Loves,

When asked about things you would like to see more of on the blog, one topic that came up was how to shopping your own closet. Be honest, how many times do you say to yourself that you have nothing to wear, but you have a closet FULL of things? The concept of shopping your closet is not hard to do, but it is a difficult habit to change. Below I have listed 4 points that have worked for me. I think this points will help you learn to shop your closet. Stay tuned until the end where I share some examples of my shopping my own closet.

Wrap Dress

Plus size wrap dress

Hey Loves,

The smiles you see in this photo are completely genuine because this is the 1st outfit I'm shooting since getting my camera back. If you follow me on Facebook you know that when I originally intended to shot this outfit, the wind basically toppled my camera. I had to take it to Geek Squad to get it fixed. After I picked it up, I went straight to the park to shoot this look. If you know me, you know I absolutely love wrap dress & faux wrap dresses. I think they are a must for every plus size girl's closet. They are easy to wear, they are very flattering for every figure, they're timeless & the ultimate transitional piece. You can easily pair it with sandals in the warmer months, then pair it with some great tights & boots in the cooler months. 

AVA & VIV Target's new plus size line

 Hey Loves,

If for some reason you're living under a rock, you obviously know by now that Target is launching their new plus size line AVA & VIV! After a lot of back & forth with the plus size consumers, Target seems to have gotten it together and created a plus size collection that is fashion forward and also affordable. The collection will be in stores & online. And as you can see, they reached out to 3 of our favorite bloggers to be brand ambassadors for the launch. Gabi of Gabi Fresh, Chasity of Garner Style & Nicolette of Nicolette Mason. I don't know about you but I totally plan to snag a few pieces.

Fatkini Season

Hey Loves,

You know normally I never use the word Fatkini, but I thought it was so appropriate. I know it's freezing her in Jersey & in many parts of the US, and being 1/2 naked outside is the last thing on anyone's mind. But to me it is NEVER to early to talk about plus size swimwear. I will be doing my annual plus size swimwear round up. That seems to ALWAYS be a popular post for me so stay on the look out for that. But for this post I wanted to talk about how to get ready for fatkini season!

Yes you read it right, the fabulous Isabel Toledo teamed up with the awesome people at MAC to create a fantastic line. The line will consist of 45 products to release online Jan. 29 & in stores Feb. 5th. If you loved her collections, then you will love the MAC products. They are so fun, and very much her.

Plus Size Women SHOULD shop Lilly Pulitzer for Target Line

Hey Loves,

I wanted to give my perspective on the new Lilly Pulitzer designer line for Target, which offer extended sizes online. I have been seeing a lot of articles, blog post & forums expressing why the plus size shopper is upset with Target. And why we shouldn't shop the line. While I understand your frustration I wanted to offer my 2 cents and maybe a different perspective on why we plus size women SHOULD shop & spend our money on the new Lilly Pulitzer line. I didn't have a chance to attend the preview a couple weeks ago, but I've seen the pictures from the new collection & I plan to buy a couple pieces.
