Ambrosia

It’s been a while since my last post, but I am so proud to bring you the Ambrosia. This dress, by one of my favourite recently relaunched brands, IGIGI, is quite spectacular.

When you love a bodycon (a form fitted style that outlines your curves) like I do, but you also are a little self-conscious of your tummy, ruching is your friend. Ruching is a style of pleating that has become popular in recent years, and the reason it is embraced is because it camouflages the area it covers. So if you are drawn to bodycons, but you’re a little shy about your mid-section, look for dresses with ruching, or better yet, try the Ambrosia itself.

With a slightly off-shoulder design, and a sweetheart neckline revealing a slight décolletage, the Ambrosia is a sexy yet still sophisticated cocktail, dinner or date option.

Given the time of year and approaching Spring weather, I decided to style it with a cream coloured wedge sandal and accessorize with ruby and cream accents.

The large Ruby Multi Chain Faceted Teardrop Crystal Necklace Set elevates the look to a more formal level. And the Sophie Multi-wear shawl by designer Joseph Ribkoff provides a layer of elegance and ties in with the sandals.

The Ambrosia dress comes in black and teal as well, in sizes 14-36.

Zipped but not Confined

img_7446sm

Zipped but not Confined – see that’s the thing with jackets – if they’re not specifically made by plus size designers or brands, they often end up looking great on the hanger, but being too tight or ill-fitted when zipped. Well, that definitely wasn’t the case with the Beverly Zipper Jacket I’m featuring in this post.

img_7488-sm

Designed and manufacturer by SWAK Designs, a brand that totally gets and loves plus sizes, the fit was GREAT and super comfortable, even zipped up.

Now, if you’re like me and you like longer tops that go below the belly, you may be thinking how you would wear the Beverly, but when I saw it, I knew I could do a longer cami (also by SWAK and sold at SexyPlus Clothing) to create a layered look. And the seams in the jacket provide a nice tapered look that outlined my silhouette.

img_7471sm

Throw on some leggings, like these Perfect Seamless Leggings also by SWAK and sold at SexyPlus Clothing, or some skinny jeans, and you’ve got a really nice walk-in-the-park Sunday afternoon Fall outfit. And if you’re wondering what that sexy thing is under my cami? That’s my harness bra, that I featured in a holiday 2015 post.

The Beverly Zipper Jacket also comes in black and berry.

I hope you are inspired to try something a little shorter than you normally wear, or even a crop (which can also be layered). Thank you SWAK for always making wearable clothing for us curvy girls!

Special thanks to Caterina Moda for snapping these pics for me 🙂

Welcome Fall – I Harvest You

As mentioned in my previous post, I am excited for Fall because with each season, plus size fashion gets better and better. The Affordable Casual Collection by Point Zero Curvy offered at my boutique SexyPlus Clothing is no exception. I mean, just LOOK at this bee-you-tiful kimono duster in all of its glorious detail.

IMG_2453

Not only is the boho print so romantically autumn, but the back features a top and bottom lace insert, allowing your outfit (and derriere) to be seen from the back, and the fringe makes it oh so dramatic.

IMG_2474

I love tapered garments that can be loose fitting but still outline my silhouette, and this plus size kimono duster has just that. I don’t feel like my shape is lost.

IMG_2491

There are so many ways this beautiful piece can be styled: with jeans, a cami and leggings, over a jumpsuit, etc. Endless!!!

Now let’s talk about the LBD I have underneath. Also a Point Zero Curvy design, this basic a-line dress is actually not so basic.

IMG_2426

Featuring faux-leather braiding to decorate the soft v neckline, and totally whimsical chiffon bell sleeves.

IMG_2445

As a petite plus, the length was perfect for me, and my taller sisters may enjoy it’s above-knee look, especially throughout the season with tights and wide calf boots.

IMG_2441

The sizing was generous and I am wearing the 0X (I normally wear a 1X).

This is just the beginning and I’ll be sharing more Fall looks that will make summer’s end a little less painful.

Saying Goodbye to Summer 16

I have enjoyed Summer 2016 probably more than any summer in my life because I can honestly say that I’ve come to a point where my insecurities and societal pressures DO NOT affect how I dress. I’ve worn my hair pulled back into a pony because of the high temps, something I would not have done before because I didn’t think I was pretty with my hair that way. I’ve gone to the beach, worn sleeveless dresses all summer, showed my knees in shorts, and dressed according to the climate, with a sense of freedom and exhilaration.

So while I am sad that it’s coming to an end, the consolation prize is the AMAZING Fall fashions coming this way. As the owner of SexyPlus Clothing boutique, I’ve selected some fabulous pieces for you to welcome the harvest season with joy and excitement, like this ensemble from Point Zero Curvy brand, now in store.

IMG_2572

The top is gorgeous and I love cold shoulders – so sassy. The corset effect at the bust is just so me and the bell sleeves, well, that’s what I’ve come to love and expect from Point Zero Curvy, in that they never compromise details and style.

IMG_2577

The back features a nice V and the side slits on the blouse allow it to fall loosely on your hips without being clingy. If you are self-conscious about your belly, trust me this top is your friend as I have a pretty pronounced mid-section which is nicely concealed in this top.

IMG_2581

The length is perfect to wear with these super bad new leggings – the faux-leather sections in the front make them look like boots. In the colder months, I would wear these with booties and they would look like over-the-knee boots!

IMG_2566

In a thick, curve-hugging ponte fabric with large elastic waist bands, they stay in place and are truly uber comfy.

IMG_2562

So don’t feel bad about summer ending…Fall is going to be fabulous dontcha know!

Plus Size Outfit of the Day: Cayman Islands

This dress from SexyPlus Clothing’s summer collection last year has always been one of my favs. I love the combination of animal print with watercolours. And now that summer’s here, I am glad to wear it again.

I always like to present a polished look, even for when I am at work at the store (SexyPlus Clothing). So, I decided to exercise my print-mixing superpowers and combine it with this bee-u-tee-ful scarf my friend Anesha gave me. It’s from a luxury brand called Turrath and it’s just divine. With a unique double pointed cut, I can easily wear it as a light shawl over any dress.
