Smart Top

Well that's what they're called in the UK!

ASOS CURVE Wrap Front Ruched Sleeve Blouse
There isn't anything I don't like about this top...the fabric is nice and soft...the color...lets be honest that's why I bought it...and the cut...perfection!  If this was offered in more color options I would for sure buy another!

Buy clothing you love and you'll feel great in everything you wear!

If you're a regular reader you know I love neon...mostly neon pink but for the most part all neon!

Exclusive Top With Mesh Panel

Not sure that I'll bump this look with black under...I'm thinking nude or white...white will make it pop.  But if you're looking to make this work for the Winter time and white is making it look too Spring/Summer...go with black.  The material is'll have people complementing you left and right...not to mention people wanting a closer look!

It's's fun...and has sequins!

Lane Bryant
Sheer Sequin Pesant Top

Super pumped to find this still available in stores...especially on a day when everything was 50% off!  Holler!  This top is sheer...that's why you can see the models skin through the sleeves!  The online reviews mentioned it should come with a layering cami for the price, I have plenty of black layering camis...and to be perfectly honest...all of the tops I own that come with layering camis...they always suck!  I prefer to put my own underneath.

Lady in Red

So bummed that I missed out on this...I feel like I have to be a Lane Bryant stalker both in store and online in order to catch the stuff I actually like. 

Satin Ruffle Sheer Babydoll
I'm holding out hope that they'll do something in red for Valentines man likes me in red!  I did find one in store...a 14/16 and it looked like it ran a tad on the small side.  I'm one of those Plus Sized girls that was blessed in the chest...even I knew the 14/16 wasn't going to happen...and I really wanted it!

A Spot of Tea

OK!  I thought hard...I got creative...sadly I could not come up with a single event I could wear this dress to.  All I needed was an excuse and it would have gone in my cart with no hesitation. 

If I was a socialite I would have needed it...I almost had an got cancelled.  Some of you might be thinking it looks a bit like the pattern from your Grandmother's couch growing up...I won't argue with you...I'm thinking that might be part of the reason I love it!

Black or White about both!

Exclusive Shirt With Lace Yoke Detail

I'm in love with this for multiple reasons.  First I love that the back dips down lower than the front...a graduated hem if you will.  Second, the lace...hello...I love it!  And last...I love the basic of the black and white together...classic and it just allows for many styling options!  I just tracked my order and I should get it tomorrow...eek!  I hope it works out...if so I'll post some pictures of me actually in it! 

A little nervous...white is an invitation to for me to spill anything and everything on myself...must...keep...clean!

Bold Stripe

I love this top for multiple reasons...

Forever 21+
First is the partial button placket at the back neck, I love the little details...second is the fact that it just goes so well with my black leather jacket and skinny jeans.  With boots it looks daytime...switch it up to heels and your night time look...achieved!

E is for...


Champagne Tuxedo Jacket

Gold Party Dress

Having a new place to shop is always fun...I've been anxiously awaiting the launch on this new line of Plus Size apparel from The Limited.  They are online only for now...but with free shipping both ways I can deal! 

What am I most excited about?  Eloquii has taken a special interest in what the Plus Size customer is looking for...and looking at their first offerings they don't seem to be cutting any corners.  I've ordered the Tuxedo Jacket and Party Dress...above...stay tuned for a followup on shipping time and fit!  My only worry is if I'll look good in this shade of yellow!

Baby It's Cold Outside

I'll gladly say good by to sunshine and lolly-pops if it means walking around looking fab in items like this!

Evans Camel Piped Edged Duffel Coat

Let's be honest ladies...when it's cold out we don't always have the luxury of impressing others with the faubulousness underneath our outerwear...when you only get one chance to impress make sure your outerwear looks its best!

Little House on the Prarrie

So many with me here...

Forever 21+

Forever 21+
Barbie Raglan Top
So, I love Barbie...I'm guessing that's where I get my love of pink.  I never really played with Her...I simply styled Her over and over again!  So fun!  I know it's cheesy but I'm totally snaggin' this top...Plus Size Barbie?!

So Nice...I Bought it Twice!

I say...if you love it buy it in more than one color...

Tailored Drapey Jacket
NOW $70.68
I first got this jacket in Navy and now...I have it in this lovely blush color! A great blazer with a little added detailing can take a simple cami or top from a 2 to a 10...and who doesn't want to look like a 10!?!

"A word to the thick sole sisters, I wanna get with ya!" Sorry, couldn't help myself...I'm from is Sir Mix A Lot!
"Stop Staring"
Eggplant Lula Wiggle Dress
This dress is HOT...but it's not for everyone...myself included.  I feel like you need to be...uh...solid've got more rolls than a bakery! Perhaps with a ton of shape wear? Ha! Sausage! 

At any rate...this dress is sexy and if you've got curves you wanna rock...rolls or it with confidence!

Animal Instinct

Some times I wonder if I belong in Jersey?  I have to say I really love animal print...but to a degree.  I've tastefully done some amazing foe zebra hair boots circa 2000...but I knew when they needed to go. And currently...ah-mazing foe leopard hair platform wedges ...thank you Jeffrey Campbell.

Velvet Leopard Burnout Top
Forever 21+
Now I'm adding this lovely top to my wardrobe! A velvet burnout...come on!  I'm already styling the outfit, hair and makeup in my head! 

Don't know how to do Animal Print?  Think small and statement...small in that it shouldn't be your whole outfit and statement as in it is your statement piece, nothing should compete with it.  If it's shoes...your pants, top or jewelry shouldn't compete...if it's a top...keep the rest simple!

Bring on the cold!

Just the other day I was saying how much I was dreading nightfall coming earlier in the day...the cold that comes with it.  But if that means I get to wear fab items like this coat...bring on the cold!

70's Fit and Flare Coat

Dare I say...with a coat like this I might just find myself looking for opportunities to be out in the cold...I think yes!

For the most part I'm anti sweater...I'm guessing this comes from two things. First I'm from Seattle so they were necessary a lot of the time...and second because looking back at old pictures I HATE all of the ones I'm wearing sweaters in...I'm like what was I thinking!?

Brown Intarsia Horse Pullover Sweater
I'm guessing that by owning this sweater there could come a time I'll wonder what I was thinking...but then who cares...because right now I think it's SO SUPER CUTE!!!

I Wish I Was a Baller

I wish I was a little bit taller...and I wish this top wasn't $184.00!

Rachel Pally Button Front Print Tank
I will however be stalking it like it's my part time job to see if I can snag in on markdown!  I can live without it but life would be all that much sweeter if I could call this top mine...I'm already imagining outfitting, hair and makeup options!

I'm not Hispanic...I don't even speak Spanish...that didn't stop me from buying this t-shirt!  I told myself no more graphic t's...but I can't help it!  I'll wear it on ultra casual days...or on the beaches of Maui during my upcoming vacation!

Forever 21+

Hola V-Neck T
Who am I kidding...I'll wear it where ever and when ever I want...I just hope no one expects me to be Spanish speaking!  Ha!

Stripes & Posy

I was sold on the print...

Forever 21 Plus

Flowers & Stripes Top

I don't know, there's just something about's not too dressed up or too's just SUPER CUTE!  Caution...don't wash & dry...perhaps wash gentile and lay flat to dry...mine is not lookin' so hot after my casual care regimen!  Oops!

Jail Bird?

I'm OBSESSED with stripes for some reason.  I love that this is a Plus Sized Blog and I'm blogging about an article of clothing that isn't supposed to be worn by us big girls...but I say if it looks good on me don't talk to me about it! 

Striped Flax-Blend Tee
I own a mirror, I can be honest with myself...and if I'm too emotionally attached to something I can ask a friend and know that they'll tell me the truth!  I don't want to keep anything that I shouldn't be wearing, that's just a lose lose.  Holler if you love stripes!

Stars & Stripes

There's just something about Old Glory that does it for doesn't even need to be the month of July!  I'll rock our Stars & Stripes year round, especially when they come in sequin form!

Sequin Flag Tank
Can't say that I am a fan of this tank being a racerback...I just hate having to figure out a bra option that won't me lazy!  At any rate...I think I just might have to add this to the wardrobe...I need more closet space!

Wovens are tough...often there is no stretch at all and if you ask me it's as if someone decided to create and produce a garment to the point of completion and then wash it so it could shrink up just enough to be too small.

Forever 21+
Fresh Striped Dress
I'm sure by now you've guessed this didn't fit...because it didn't.  Sad for me but great for a friend with a smaller bust...I was totally jealous of her...I had imagined wearing this in Hawaii with some great sandals...the

Besides being addicted to shopping...I also like to plan ahead.  I get that Halloween is three months away...but it's best to be prepared!

 Last week I got an email from my group of girls saying that they are doing a Circus theme for this years Halloween festivities and luckily I can make a late/early purchase work.  You see I got this on sale on sale last December...and though the costume is called Gypsy I'm going for Fortune Teller...they have both at the Circus really! 

I also picked up this Pirate costume...what can I say...I love Halloween and dressing up!  Besides, what if I have more than one party to attend?

So both costumes come from and even though they're from last year doesn't mean you have to completely miss out. 
Flight Attendant Costume
If I wasn't prepared already I'd most likely pick this costume up...though I know Torrid hasn't finished adding all of their Costume options just yet.  Get ahead of the game...or wait for all of your options...just don't wait until it's too late!
