Pyjama Shenanigans

My second feature, and the final instalment of this year’s #HolidayDoubleSlay with blogger, influencer and my friend Lisa of Mustangsallytwo, is here and it’s all about PJ’s!!

What a great way to end a fun and festive series celebrating plus size fashion, body positivity and the beauty that comes in all shapes and sizes. And just in case you missed them, here are links to each of the #HolidayDoubleSlay features from Lisa’s blog:

Monday – Lisa & Gail in Eloquii

Tuesday – Lisa & Me in Catherine’s

Wednesday – Lisa & Sarah in Full Beauty

Thursday – Lisa & Caterina in Torrid

The final look is a GROUP SLAY!! This segment was so much fun to shoot because A) we are undeniably adorable and B) we were all incredibly comfy! All of our looks are provided by Lane Bryant from their fantastic Sleep & Lounge collection. We selected each look ourselves, and we were so impressed by the versatility they had to offer. Each one of us was able to find something to reflect our personal style in our size.

In the colder months, I am definitely a leggings, tunic and tall boots kinda gal, so my “Chillin’ With My Snowmies” set and knee-high socks was a natural choice. The fabric was soft, stretchy, high quality, and the size was just right (I am wearing the 1X). The socks are so fun, and they complete the look making it something I could totally wear on Christmas morning without freezing my toes off. They are now sold out, but here’s a cute alternative.

We each shot a look alongside Lisa, the creative mind behind this entire collaboration.

Bringing Lisa’s vision to life was not only super fun, but a reflection of the friendship we’ve developed and the genuine affection we have for each other.

Please enjoy all of Lisa’s #HolidayDoubleSlay looks on her blog – and yeah, we’ve already started planning next year’s: think outdoors at night, a park flooded with Christmas lights, jeans and outerwear…you’ll wanna be here for that!

For now, we wish you all the happiest of holidays, and remember what’s important: time with family and friends, a spirit of benevolence, and of course, great PJ’s 😉

Holiday Double Slay with Mustangsallytwo

Well the holidays are in full swing now and I am so excited to share my recent collaboration with blogger extraordinaire and good friend, Lisa of Mustangsallytwo.

Lisa’s commitment to inspiring women through her blog is tremendous and she is one of the most dedicated influencers I know. She has become an icon in the plus size fashion industry and a leader in fearless fashion for plus sizes with a special focus on extended sizes. Her blog and social media presence provide a wealth of information and insight into brands that are size inclusive, such as Catherine’s, the plus size fashion company we are featuring for our #HolidayDoubleSlay looks.

The #HolidayDoubleSlay concept was born last year when Lisa wanted to team up with some of her favourite full figured fashionistas and plus size brands to showcase beauty diversity through festive fashion – it was such a hit, and so well received by her fans and followers that Lisa decided it had to be an annual event.

I loved being a part of last year’s project, and I am so honoured to have been invited by Lisa to participate again this year. So without further ado, let’s dive in to the fabulousness that is Catherine’s and the fierce options Lisa and I chose for this year’s holiday looks.

I wanted to showcase an outfit that was versatile and professional – in that it could be worn for the holidays but could also be repurposed throughout the rest of the year, and be representative of me as a business owner. The matching Moto Jacket and Ponte Skirt from their Curvy Collection was a great place to start. Both fit extremely well and the ponte fabric in both pieces made them very comfortable and easy to move in. The jacket zipped up easily and I love the silhouette shape it provided. And let’s face it, it is a total boss babe look.

 

Next, to throw in some rich colour and contrast, I chose the Drape Front Top in scarlett, and because I am petite, I tucked it partly into the skirt to balance out my torso with the length of the skirt. The beauty about this top is that it is long enough to wear with leggings as a tunic on someone short like me (at 5’2″ I’m a petite plus, and guess what, Catherine’s offers a petite line as well!).

Here’s is a full view of the top.

It was easy to find the perfect accessories to complete this look. I chose the Gilded Cranberry Bracelet Set, the Ipanema Faceted Necklace and the Night Mood Cluster Earrings. They brought the look together making it festive but still fitting for day or night.

I also was completely obsessed with Lisa’s super fun and girly look. I mean, seriously, she never misses a beat when styling a look, from head to toe, from her adorable earrings to her magical shoes. Do head over to her blog to read about her look here.

Our thinking was holiday office party, work appropriate but still festive, and I think we delivered very well, thanks to Catherine’s!

Please enjoy all of Lisa’s #HolidayDoubleSlay looks on her blog, and get ready for pyjama shenanigans from all of us on Friday, Dec 8!
