Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses

Here’s the thing, I like to dress up. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses but it often doesn’t suit the weather or the occasion dress code. So I have started exploring ways to dress down cocktail dresses and evening wear, without coming across way too extra.  Continue reading “Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses”

When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…

I love this dress so much! Except, for one thing… it shows off way too much cleavage. I love the length of the dress, the v-neck, the bodycon design, the all black with lace details, the arm length, everything! But then I realized the center is sheer and it is 100% not appropriate to wear to work, which is where I hoped to wear it most often. Continue reading “When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…”

Classic Black High Waist Pant

Personally, I love a high waist pant. I think they are more comfortable to wear and I think they emphasize the curve of a woman’s body. However, for exactly that reason, I have not always loved them. The more I embrace my body, the more I embrace wearing clothes that I used to avoid.  Continue reading “Classic Black High Waist Pant”

When The Outfit Is Right But The Weather Is Wrong

As bloggers, we often have a planned schedule for our blogs in terms of when we take our photos, when we write our content, and when we publish our posts. Even if it is less set in stone by the brands we are working with and more about our own availability and convenience, we schedule ourselves appropriately. Unfortunately, things don’t always go exactly as planned and the main reason for that is the weather.  Continue reading “When The Outfit Is Right But The Weather Is Wrong”

Thigh High Boots for Thick Thighs

When I posted the first blog post featuring these boots, I got comments on all of my social media platforms asking where I got them. Women were telling me they struggled to find both thigh high and knee high boots that fit their thicker bodies. So I’ve compiled a list of my favourite wide calf and plus size thigh high boots so you can start shopping today. Continue reading “Thigh High Boots for Thick Thighs”

Pre-Launch Sneak Peek: Loralette

I am so excited to bring you an exclusive sneak peek at the brand Loralette before it has even launched! I’ve partnered with them to bring you a behind the scenes look at what they will be offering. Loralette is the newest collection from Avenue, the third largest plus-size retailer in the USA, that also ships to Canada, yay! Their new styles are meant to appeal to a younger or at least trendier shopper. Because really, what is age but a number? So I believe that you should wear what you love no matter what that number is. I honestly haven’t been this excited about a new brand in a very long time and that’s exactly why I agreed to show you a sneak peek of what they will have to offer as of mid-March.

Spring Trends: Mesh & Floral

I recently made a post on Instagram about the spring trends I had previously seen on the runways and I am now seeing in the stores and online. The one that topped the list, in my opinion, was floral prints. I think it is the perfect spring trend as flowers are literally starting to bloom all around us.
