Holiday Double Slay – Girls Night In!

Happy Friday Fans! My second feature for the 2018 #HolidayDoubleSlay is a GROUP SLAY and it’s a total “girls night in” vibe. Lisa invited each of us to select casual lounge looks from the extensive and super cute collection offered by Lane Bryant. We had so much fun shooting this instalment and even got into a bit of a pillow fight!

The best part about the group shot in the #HolidayDoubleSlay series is that we really get to showcase #BeautyDiversity: our ages range from 35-45, we are petite, average and tall, we are pears and apples and all the yummy fruits, and we wear sizes 14/16 to 26/28. I think you’ll agree that these photos really demonstrate the beauty in all our unique sizes and shapes; after all, the world would be so boring without diversity!

Now let’s talk about my look. I didn’t have to scroll too far on the Lane Bryant website before totally falling for this adorable active/lounge set.

I’m a leggings girl through and through (no news there right?) and I also love vests because they are practical and provide warmth without restricting movement. But I’ve only ever seen them in solids and dark colours. Imagine my excitement when I saw Puffer Vest in a beautiful floral print that totally brightens up an otherwise dull looking Fall/Winter season. AND I was beyond delighted when I saw the matching leggings! Gah!!!

I paired it with a long cozy burgundy active hoodie and I loved how the ruffled hem gives a girly flavour to a sporty look. This hoodie also comes in several colours.

And how fun are these festive socks? Grab yours: they are now on sale as part of Lane Bryant’s door buster for $5US!

Lisa’s look was super cozy and girly too. Both looks are travel friendly and perfect for girls night in!

An important element to this year’s campaign was to showcase pictures of us sitting down; something so many women shy away from when getting their picture taken. We wanted to celebrate the curvy body and all it’s cuteness in any position, in the hopes in dispelling some of the fear. So here’s to our belly rolls, our chubby knees, thick thighs and to our realness!

Over the years Lisa and I have done more than collaborate on projects in the world of plus size fashion: we’ve become great friends. She is a woman of principle, and her kind don’t come around too often, so, yeah, I’m hangin’ on.

Check out all the girls’ looks:





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 lounge wear 😉
