What I Wore: The Perfect Summer Dress

Outfit Posts Summer

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect summer dress. That dress that doesn't require special undergarments, will cover my bra, will hide sweat stains, isn't too tight but isn't a muumuu, not too long but I can pick something up off the ground without flashing the world, can dress up and down with ease, isn't made of a sweaty sticky fabric, can be put in the wash, and has…

recent purchases hits and misses by wardrobe oxygen

Shopping Hits and Misses: Madewell, Boden, Ellos, J. Crew, Amazon

Fashion Advice

I told you there'd be a lot of these hits and misses!

My stomach is flatter, which makes a lot of my pants too long and saggy in the crotch. My breasts are smaller (went from…

This capsule wardrobe is for you – weekend style refined. This capsule wardrobe is all about layering, so it can work now in late summer when it’s a bit breezy, and continue until there’s frost in the morning. However, most of these pieces…

plus size bloggers wearing the ELOQUII Kady pant curvy ankle pants

Ask Allie: Ankle Pants for Curvy Cusp Sized Women

Fashion Advice

I love the Kady pant from ELOQUII, but I'm losing weight. The things I like about the Kady pant include the perfect ankle length, the variety of colors that keep being introduced, the versatility of the pant (work appropriate and casual appropriate too), and the cut that makes room for a curvy gal's figure. Do you have any recommendations for a [cusp-sized] vendor that can come close to the attributes…
