This Season’s Favorites

Avenue plus size red lavender black stripe watercolor faux wrap dress 2013

 Available from Avenue.com up to size 30/32

Why do I love this? It’s one of those prints that helps the curves along – it might require a little bit of tailoring once you get it home, but once that’s done – hello, can you say perfect Valentine’s dress?

Black and tan plus size skater dress I Heart Posh Shoppe 2013

I Heart Posh Shoppe available up to size 3x

It’s cute, it’s classic, it’s transitionable! I can see this working with tights – or bare legs and sandals. Also, the neutral colors make it easier to control the seasonality. Just add bling.


Ulla Popken plus size lace bib shirt 2013

Available from Ulla Popken up to size 34.

I’m a sucker for lace-like patterns. I’m also really into tunics for winter this year – it’s just..I dunno, easier.

Ashley Stewart plus size black lace sleeve shirt 2013

available from Ashley Stewart up to size 26

Lace-look sleeves are a favorite of mine – they hint at the sexy but there’s no possibility whatsoever of a wardrobe malfunction.

Ashley Stewart plus size baroque brocade dress 2013

Available from Ashley Stewart up to size 24

Last year plus sizes mostly got locked out of the baroque trend – but at long last, it’s found it’s way to plus size in some fun textured prints like the one on this dress!

Igigi plus size green black lace overlay peplum cut dress 2013

 Available from Igigi up to size 30/32

How gorgeous is this dress? It’s peplum color blocking used as a way to block and define shape – and it’s done brilliantly!

 eShakti plus size grey ballet style dress 2013

Available from eShakti up to pretty much any size you happen to be.

Yes, this is a Nutcracker friendly dress. It’s also simple, sweet, friendly and easy to wear with flats, heels… or in my case, probably combat boots. It’s a thing. Roll with it.

While it’s unlikely all these things will make their way under the tree for me, I may just Santa myself on one or two!

Review: Igigi Skirt and Blouse

Materials for this post were provided free of charge by the producing company.

The good folks at Igigi requested I review some pieces from their 2013 line. Since I love Igigi – it definitely fits me when I’m in the mood for a classic look – I jumped at the opportunity. I selected the Belmont Skirt – the brocade pattern had me drooling. Ozlem also included the Tavi top to go with it, since it’s pictured like this on their site:

tavi-burgundy-frontOn me, it looks like this:

fatchic4Actually, from a few other angles – it’s a roomy skirt and I tend to move around a lot in it:

It’s also very, very warm. I love how warm the skirt is. My partner, Mike, is a big fan of the blouse. We were both thrown a little at first by the blouse – it has ruffling that you tuck on the inside. The shirt above is a little bit big for me – I’ve gained some muscle on top from weight lifting in water aerobics and Pilates – it has thinned my arms and reshaped my chest. (This does not happen to every person who does this exercise combination, it just happened to happen to me.) Looking at the photos now, I might do better to wear it with heels. I was having severe back pain and snow was in the forecast so I chose to go with the boots.

I love this and I plan to wear the skirt lots this winter – once I get my chiropractice issues straightened out I have the perfect Oxford booties to go with it and I can’t wait to see how it looks with this top from Igigi that I reviewed last year:


Igigi plus size blue houndstooth wrap sweater 2012 (5)




For winter style, I absolutely love it. It looks nice enough for theater but is comfortable enough to get up and dance – and I always need to wear clothing that lets me dance!
