Outfit Posts Winter

This post is brought to you by cabi. I love how cabi always keeps their fashion fresh, and how each collection styles nicely with each other. Just this week, cabi's Fashion Flash launched, a small capsule of pieces from the Spring 2018 collection. These pieces blend beautifully with the current collection and give a taste of what's to come January 19th month when the entire Spring 2018 collection launches! Jacket:…

What I Wore: Crazy Cat Lady

personal style

As soon as I saw this grey leopard print jacket at cabi's Scoop this summer I knew I had to have it. It's stretchy, a bit like ponte, but smoother, more polished. There's a cute X of black elastic at the back that gives the jacket a great fit and interest. I got it early fall and wore it a LOT. This was worn at the office almost every week…

What I Wore: Denim Coveralls

Outfit Posts Winter

I have wanted a pair of coveralls forever (okay since 2007 as I mentioned in this post). I had it in my mind, dark denim, but not too stiff.  Snaps, no zipper, no buttons.  I envisioned them cuffed to the ankles with some old-school sneakers or funky flats, or maybe roll cuffed with an amazing pair of heels.  However, when you're short and round it's darn near impossible to find…

What I Wore: Jumpsuit Sparkle

Outfit Posts Winter

Earlier this year, I attended an event to celebrate the curvy community in the DC area.  I knew it would be amazing fashion, and wanted to stand out but still remain comfortable.  I really wanted a jumpsuit, and googled plus size sequin jumpsuit and found this one from Ellos. I was meeting with Ellos and Full Beauty Brands the next week for their fall campaign and reached out to see…

One Cashmere Sweater Three Ways: Dressy Dinner

Outfit Posts Winter

This is Day 3 of styling the same Lord & Taylor cashmere crewneck for the holidays.  For this look, I dressed up cashmere for a dressy dinner or even a cocktail party.  Cashmere is a great pairing with sequins, and a way to add some warmth to an evening look. Skirt: Halogen (XLP; plus size option, I love this green plus size option too) | Sweater: Cashmere crewneck c/o Lord…

What I Wore: Embellishment

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

My friend Carletta shared this very jacket on Twitter the other week, annoyed that the only real leather jacket ASOS offered in plus sizes was covered in embroidered flowers. I didn't realize when I bought this jacket back in March that it was the only plus size leather offering, I was just in awe of all of the embellishment. Because there's two Allies, one who likes tasteful and stylish, and…

What I Wore: Sequins

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

I've said it before, there's a little Studio 54 hiding in the back of my closet.  For years those fun sequined and sparkly pieces collected dust, not having the guts or the lifestyle to let them see the light of day.  The older I get, the more I want to wear those pieces and will find an occasion to wear them. When I saw this gorgeous sequined dress at ELOQUII…
