What are you in for, ma’am? Well, that’s the thing: I’ve been breaking out of plus size fashion prison, and the related stereotypes, for some time now.
About 17 years ago (when I was 25), I decided that I was going to see myself as a “perfectly imperfect package”, and I’ve been rocking my curves ever since.
I think women reach this state of self appreciation and acceptance at different points in their lives, and it’s important that they do. Because then, they can break free from any restrictive barriers and soar, in mind and in wardrobe!
In 2009, I discovered the brand Sealed With A Kiss Designs (SWAK) when I was at the inaugural Full Figured Fashion Week in New York. I was looking for trendy, affordable plus size clothing brands to offer at my boutique SexyPlus, and SWAK was a fresh solution.
Recently I picked up the Zora Tunic Sweater because it fits right in with my style of fitted, body-contouring, unapologetically bold fashion. I paired it with my favourite (and best-selling) Perfect Leggings also from SWAK.
Although I’m petite, it would still be long enough for a taller lady to wear it with leggings as well.
And this is a good way to take your Winter stuff into Spring – change the accessories and shoes. This outfit would look nice with wide calf boots in the colder months. The bag adds a nice splash of colour which is always complimentary on a monochromatic outfit. It’s a gorgeous Coach handbag borrowed from Lisa of Mustangsallytwo – fashionista extra-ordinare and accessory Queen.
The size was a little small on the sweater so I got the 2X, and it was great. I am wearing my shapewear in these pictures.
Special thanks to Lisa
of the blog Mustangsallytwo for snapping these great pictures for me!
See you soon,
