Thought process when ordering these items: Oh gosh I am going to the opening of The Wing in DC and I want to show that though I am 43, I am not old and frumpy. But I am not also trying to look young or try-hard. Come through ASOS, bring me some things that make my outside look like my inside without costing a kazillion dollars! Spoiler alert: My order…

What I Wore: CARE at the Embassy of Finland

Outfit Posts Winter

Did you know where the term care package came from? CARE.org created the original care package in 1945 with rations from World War II to help those in Europe devastated by it. Since then, CARE has grown to become a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole…

What I Wore: Bold

Outfit Posts Winter

Who would have thought a bold pink pantsuit would be one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe? I bought this suit a year ago without a purpose or a place but just because I loved the color and I love how Banana Republic suiting fits me. I wore it to the rewardStyle conference, wore it to a daytime wedding, to work (together and as separates), have worn each…

What I Wore: Old and New

Outfit Posts Winter

Yesterday I met two friends for lunch in the city. It was at a cute French cafe, so no need to be super fancy but I wanted to look polished (and well, when bloggers get together photos are always taken!). Karl captured these photos while outside waiting for the Uber. Blazer: Banana Republic (14P) (old; similar, plus size option) | Silk blouse: Ann Taylor (XL) (old; similar, plus size option)…

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…
