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!

Curvy Words Magic

Due to LIFE, it’s been sometime since my last post but I saw a few curvy sayings that I used as affirmations while living curvy. With spring/summer approaching, I need a little pep to stay positive with life perception of what “CUTE” means in our society.  I hope these curvy words is a inspiration to someone because they were magic to my thoughts.

embellished glam

Bling, Bling. We all love it whether if its a shiny jewelry accessory or a studded jacket. Now as a  GlamCurvy Diva, my wardrobe has a few embellish looks. However, these are breathtaking. From the onyx emblem black dress, to the stunning pair of pearl stockings,  to a white bling heel , to a multicolor rhinestone bathing suit, and embellished face jewelry. I love them ALL.

Would you wear some of these embellished glam looks?

My Jewelry Box Must Haves

The New Year is here and its time to start planning out what my fashion accessories would consist of for Spring 2014. I am looking for some unique, semi -trendy pieces that are timeless  and cross functional across multiple looks. As usual, I started a jewelry box  visionboard on Pinterest capturing some of the must haves I have to hunt down. Now some of these, I can find but the budget is not there to own it. But searching for a similar look is just as exciting.

Happy GlamCurvy Friday!

Boot Swag

Collage

The fall/winter season is my favorite time of year to showcase my boot swag. Most women love a sexy boot and jacket combo to showcase there style and glam during the wintery months.  Today, I started my boot swag “board” to identify my “must haves” for the fall/winter season.

Santa needs to stop by today, because I cannot wait until December to enjoy these. What is a curvy girl to do?

Animal Print Flava

Collage

Fall is approaching and I am trying to determine which looks I want to add to my fall wardrobe. Scrolling though Pinterest, I saw some key pieces I want to incorporate into my Glamcurvy style. I am not a fan of wearing animal print garments, however I will add these key accessories to enjoy the look.

Now the lip color with the black lines is cute for runway, I can just take the base color and the nail color to compliment.

Check out these cool “Animal Print” pieces I found..

Lineup: Assortment of Designer Loafers, Celine Animal Print Handbag, Bracelet, Nail & Lip
