Uh yeah...so cute!  Not meant for every Plus size girl but for the ones that can pull off a more fitted dress...and a strapless one at that...you better rock it!

Multi-Stripe Poplin Pocket Tube Dress
Note that the dress doesn't come with the belt...and I really like what the belt is doing here.  It adds shape and breaks up the multi-stripe making it easier to look at as well as more flattering.  Torrid sells the belt separately for $18.50, but if you can't find it just get a belt that coordinates with the shoes you plan to wear with this...I'd suggest a cute pair of wedged espadrilles!

Where's the Beach?

So I got an early start on swimsuit procurement...shocker.  Now I'm doing anything and everything to plan a trip that will take me to the sun and water so I can sport this super cute suit!

Old Navy Online Plus

Women's Plus V-Neck Swimsuit
I know that the back looks kind of Grandma but I promise it's super cute on...besides...I'm not a tan yourself by the pool or on the beach kind of girl.  I'm jammin around in the waves or playing around the pool...I need support and some coverage. Stay tuned for more suit...I promise hotness and variety!

Love On the Line

I love love...so naturally I love this top!  The best color for my skin tone...no.  But I'm sure I'll figure out a way to make it work!  I just hope it's not too short!

For those of you wondering what the clothing I buy looks like on me...fear not!  Here's the plan; I'm going to collect my favorite Spring/Summer looks that I've blogged about and do a mini photo shoot of me...yes me...sporting them all!  Hopefully it will help you to get a better grasp on my personal style...and I'll be explaining why I bought the items I bought and why they work for my body!  Stay tuned!

Hey Sailor!

OMG!  I couldn't chance this one selling out before I got a shot at it, so I quickly added it to my bag...along with two other cute items to qualify for free shipping...and completed my order!

Criss Cross Will Make Ya

Jump jump! 

Criss Cross Abstract Dress

Favy Criss-Cross wedges
by Fiel Shoes

 Just got this in the mail along with two other "keepers" and I love it!  Wearing it right now in fact!  Not the best dress for the wind...but I've got little short shorts under so I'm good to go!  Best part...I'm wearing my Favy Criss-Cross wedges by Fiel Shoes.  Extra points for double criss-crossin' it?  I think so!

Peace & Love

Slap a braid in my hair and a headband around my forehead and let me know where the closest outdoor concert is!  I poke fun, but seriously, I'm super pumped that someone decided this look would work for a plus sized girl.

Sleeveless Knit Sweater
Forever 21 +
Personally I'd wear some longer bottoms with it...and lighter in color but I love it none the less.

Says who?

"It won't work...it's just not the right look for Plus Size."  Says who?

Graduated Stripes Dress

Forever 21 +
I'm referring to the back cutout.  Now normally I would agree, the way these back  cutouts are executed would be a hot mess of back fat on a Plus Size girl...just saying.  But then on a  "normal" size girl you see her bra and that is not so cute either.  By reducing the large back cutout in the to something that almost resembles a keyhole this version gives a nod to a big Spring/Summer trend while being appropriate for the Plus Size market.  I can't wait to get mine in the mail!

I'm really not kidding...

I bought this because it has contrast stitching in NEON!!!  Or so I thought...

Forever 21+
Contrast Stitch Striped Hoodie
You see a friend of mine has this from Forever 21...just not in Plus.  Hers didn't have the hood but I could swear they looked the same online, sigh.  The stitching is just green...I mean it's OK...but I'm not in love.  Most likely it's going back...but we'll see.

Uh, yeah...playtime was over before it could even get started.  The sad part is I actually really liked how this looked on me...but...and this is a big but.

ASOS CURVE Blocked Print Playsuit

NOW $34.48
The slightest bend at the waist and this romper/playsuit went straight up my butt!  Apparently I have a long torso!  Eh, it was worth a shot!

Big girls can't do stripes?  Cha yes we can!  Just have to do them right...and it helps to be honest with yourself...or have really honest friends.  What do I mean by that?  Well if you don't look good in it you should be able to say "bye bye"...and if you can't, have a friend that can let you know that just because it fits doesn't mean it looks good.

Forever 21 Plus
Striped Gladiolus Flower Top
I'll assume that because I've received a bajillion complements on this top that it looks amazing on me...just sayin.
