This is for moms with tots and expecting moms: stop by sponsor The Rocking PonyÂ from the Etsy Listing to check out some happening kids’s stuff. More than just a uni-verse of onesies, the Rocking Pony offers items with real attitude. Start early with your child’s self-esteem; with guitar blankets and cowgirl outfits, you can give your little one a great creative start.
I’m a sucker for gorgeous jewelry, especially chokers that are a fit for plus size women.Â Stephanie Gibson from the Etsy Listing has a fab selection of gorgeousness. Fashion tip: let jewelry gems like Stephanie’s do the sparkling; wear them with plain colors, not patterns, so they don’t get lost in all your flash.
My favorite from her shop right now is this fabulous heart on a chain piece. It’s timeless, and takes the heart into classy over kitschy:
It’s easy to go overstated on plussie fashion; we get so eager to make a statement we overstate it. Rather than wearing something that screams out your fashion statement, there are time when it’s beneficial to go subtle. It’s really useful to have a small, quirky piece that invites conversation.
Paper Flower Girlfrom theÂ Etsy Listing has some great vintage-style pieces that give you a gentle, subtle way to invite people to approach you.Â I’m particularly fond of this bracelet, because it is lovely and a little flashy without being gaudy.
Any plussie knows that there is no area of dress that goes unaffected by size. I can’t count the number of times I’ve found a fabulous choker (chokers are totally my look) only to find it’s an inch too short, or it at least puts me within in an inch of asphyxia. So finding a good jeweler is a godsend. That’s where Dreamin’ of Beadin’ (you can find the shop on our Etsy listing) comes in. Her jewelery designs are that just-enough longer (eight inch bracelets, longer than 12 inch necklaces) and she adds a funky flair that can brighten up a more staid outfit.
