For Fall, Stand Tall & Think Pink

There is no reason pink has to recluse itself during the Fall/Winter season – it’s just a matter of knowing how to incorporate it seasonally with Fall pieces.

I recently discovered the Helen Hooded Tunic by SWAK Designs – and fell in love. I value staple pieces that I know I’ll wear again and again and this ultra cuddly hoodie is no exception. It’s a special blend of poly/spandex fabric that I haven’t felt before: soft and stretchy, of course, but also with a slight ponte/jersey feel. Not too heavy, but just warm enough to be comfortable all day. You’ve gotta touch it to know it. So I decided to style it with pink leggings, and my new low heel wide calf boots.

As you can see, the wonderful Helen tunic is long enough to actually be called a tunic, and hits at the thigh just where I like.

It is fitted, and of course I am wearing shapewear, but it’s still VERY flattering.

It has pockets which is a nice bonus…

And it covers my bum from the back too – although in this cheeky shot it looks slightly higher. But I wanted to show you the back, as well as the lace up detail on these awesome boots.

The Helen Hooded Tunic also comes in coral and heather grey.

So ladies, you CAN do pink in Fall and Winter and guess what, you can also do WHITE any friggin’ time of year you like!

Plus Size Outfit of the Day: Barcelona Lace

The Barcelona long lace cardi from SexyPlus Clothing is err-thang! Totally fell in love the minute I tried it on. And it’s so versatile – you can wear it to add drama to a dress – like I did here, or with jeans, leggings, as a swim cover, as lingerie. What a great piece to own!

Jailbird & Coral

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,
