GC’s Top 5 Plus Size Shopping Sites for Fall Fashion

Hi Everyone- I am sorry GlamCurvy have been AWOL for the last few months. Life took place and new projects came my way I had to entertain. But anyway, I miss you all and still been following the plus size fashion industry. So much have transitioned in the plus size world since the summer. 1.) Increased media visibility to the plus size industry 2.) More leading designers offering collections sizes 16 and up.  3.) The variation of styles have evolved with similarity to the skinnys now. Well I am being honest. LOL.  We still have along way to go but I can see change and hoping it continues to represent us well.

With my time away, I started searching for who have the hottest looks that fit my style for fall fashion. Classy Trendy. I identified my favorite 5 shopping sites that I purchase from frequently. Drum roll please!!!!!

1. Boohoo Plus & Curvy Clothing My favorite right now. So many cute styles to select from and the pricing is perfect for my budget.

2. City Chic Plus Size Clothing – In love. Fabulous luxe looks with affordable prices.

3. Deb Shops  Who knew?  The Deb brand have been around since I was a kid in VA.  I haven’t seen an physical storefront in years. However, it was my favorite place to shop in my teenage years. And today, they still offer classy trendy looks I love. Great shoes, too!

4. Forever 21 – Plus Size Clothing – My backup. Affordable prices of jeans, tops, and they also have great online specials. The only thing is if you buy online they only offer a credit if you return it to the store. Bummer! But usually its okay.. I can find something to purchase in replace of my credit.

5.  Eloquii – Truth Serum. Just added to my bookmarks.  I was not a big fan of the Eloquii brand at first. I thought it was pretty standard and aligned more with Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart typical looks. But over time I explored it more and came across a few looks I do love. Now it is a little pricey and sizes go fast but shop the sales. That’s the only time I peek…. and buy!

I love the holidays but hate some of the traditional holiday party looks.  My style is a little edgy and less traditional. Today, I am highlighting three looks less than $150 including the dress, handbag, and shoes for those holiday affairs.  Keep in mind, not ALL these looks will fit the office holiday party dress code. However, I incorporated  classy, fierce, and glam looks that will showcase your curves and confidence to embrace them.

Happy Holidays!

Sylvia Mollie is a new emerging designer focusing on women’s contemporary everyday wear. Even though Sylvia Mollie’s clothing line is not solely plus size, this clothing line still caters to our curvier divas and cross boundaries. When I hear the words Sylvia Mollie, I think of “CLASSY TRENDY”.

The Sylvia Mollie brand was selected as an emerging designer at WWD Magic Market Week in Las Vegas, NV on Aug. 19-21st. Only 12 designers out the country was selected with over 140K retailers viewing our line. This is such a milestone for the Sylvia Mollie Team and I am proud to be apart of it.

Cross your fingers we ROCK!

GlamCurvy explores the Fashion Galaxy!

GlamCurvy took a look into our fashion world to find out how many of our fashion designers are taking a plunge into the plus size universe. After reading magazines and viewing sites, one appeared that was not the norm. “Vince Camuto” I was shocked that he captured a look that is not only fashionable but mirror several runway looks. My hat goes off to this designer ……
