Plus Size Valentine’s Day Look Book 2017

Plus Size Valentines Day Lookbook

Plus Size Valentines Day Lookbook

As you can probably already tell from the title, this is going to be a Valentine’s Day Lookbook. This is the first look book I have ever done, so go easy on me. I will probably do more in the future, but not on a regular schedule. And just in case anyone is not sure what the difference is between a lookbook and what I usually do is, a look book tends to feature multiple looks all set around one theme with limited info on the clothing. What I usually do is only more detailed info and only one or two looks.

What I really wanted to do here is make sure that I get you the basic info you need and offer a range of styles and prices for any budget. I wish I could have shown you more options, but I just didn’t have time to do it this year. I will as usual try to include info on the fit. For reference I typically wear a 20W or 2X at most traditional plus size clothing stores like Lane Bryant or Torrid. My measurements are Bust:49″ Waist: 42″ Hips: 54″. So I really hope you all enjoy the looks I put together, I would love to hear your feedback.

 

ESPRLIA Plus Size Lace Dress

Dress: ESPRLIA Plus Size Retro Glam Lace Dress – Sold on Amazon for $52.99 regular price. Currently on sale for $23.99. Available in size 1X to 5X, I ordered a 3X (I felt their size chart was accurate). Available in three color combinations, this is the black lace and purple lining.

Shoes: My shoes are from Prima. I have had them for several years now. However I did find these Nina Women’s Bobbie LS Dress Sandal that are very similar. They come in two color options and the price starts at $31.38. Price depends on size and color picked.

Jewelry: My earrings are black chain on a French hook. I bought them a couple of years ago while on vacation. I can’t send you to a link for the exact pair, but I have found a very similar pair on Amazon. Check out these Drop Chains and a Rhinestone Earring By Fashion Destination.

 

Plus Size Black Lace Maxi Dress

Dress: I purchased this dress on Amazon. It is sold out through the seller I bought from. However I did find it available from another seller. The size charts are the same and everything. This Plus Size Lace Maxi Dress sells for $59.99 regular price. But it is on sale for $32.99 right now. Available in sizes 0X to 5X, I ordered in a 2X (I feel like this fit everywhere except where the band is at, it is quite snug there. I would not recommend this for anyone who puts their weight on in this area). Only available in black.

Shoes: The shoes I have on, you can’t really see them, but they are a pair of Nine West pumps from a couple of years ago. They are really similar to these Nine West Women’s Favorly Peep Toe D’orsay. They sell for $55.99, but there are limited sizes left.

Pixie Dust Pleated Skirt from Society Plus and top from OCC

Skirt: Pixie Dust Pleated Skirt – Sold by Society Plus for $39.99 at full price (they almost always have some sort of sale, like right now they have two different sales happening so make sure you use a coupon code). Available in sizes 14/16, 16/18, and 18/20 (I don’t understand the sizing choice, just make sure to check the size chart). I ordered the 18/20, I could have possibly gotten away with ordering the 16/18. If you wear a 22 at most places you could still possibly wear this if you happen to be a pear shape or hourglass. It is available in two color options, the one I am wearing is Magenta.

Top: The top is from a brand called C.O.C. I purchases it several years ago on Zulily.

Shoes: These are a pair of platform heels from Candy’s. I bought them about eight years ago, so obviously they no longer have them. And unfortunately I am not seeing anything similar.

Hair Accessory: I am wearing a Goody brand chiffon hair flower clip. I couldn’t find a link online, but most drugstores carry them and I found a similar one on Amazon. It’s the Wholesale Princess Chiffon Fabric Flower Hair Clip. They look spot on the same. They are available in twelve color options and sell for $2.49 + $3.49 shipping.

 

Society Plus Tutu paired with a Bardot Top from Torrid

Skirt: 5-Layer Tutu Tulle Skirt Sold by Society Plus starting at $79.99 regular price (they always have sales going like now, they currently have two sales in progress as I type this. So be don’t forget to use a coupon code). Available in sizes 14/16 to 34/36. I can’t tell you what size I have because I bought mine back when they were still Cool Gal Blue and they offered these customized. I do know they are still the same design, but I don’t think they custom make them anymore. They are available in three lengths and eight colors.

Top: The Off The Shoulder Bardot Top in pink. I purchased this at Torrid last year and it is no longer available in this color. There are some other options available though. The same top is still available in black. You can find it on Torrid’s Website or on Amazon. You can also make one of the Foldover Collar Sweaters from Torrid work.

Shoes: My shoes are from Eva & Zoe. I bought these a couple of years ago at Off Broadway Shoes. I can’t find anything like them currently.

Belt: My belt is from city chic. They no longer have the exact one I am wearing in the picture, but they do have the Wide Metal Plate Belt. It looks just the same with the exception of the color is slightly different. This is a stretch belt all except the metal potion in the front. It closes in the back with a snap. It sells for $24.00.

Jewelry: I purchased my bib necklace at TJ Maxx a few months ago. I have no idea what the brand is or where to point you to for the exact one, but I found this Crystal Flowers Bib Necklace Set By Fashion Destination that is similar. It sells for $24.34 currently, but the regular price is $44.13.

Its That Voodoo That You Do – Voodoo Vixen That Is

Voodoo Vixen and Nine West

 

Plus Size Voodoo Vixen Dress

If you are into vintage style clothing as a plus size woman, eventually you will be introduced to Voodoo Vixen. This only makes my second dress from them, but I love it just as much as the first one. I bought mine through SimplyBe.com, but I believe they are already sold out of this particular dress. You can also try looking for it at Voodoo Vixens website.

Keep in mind that Voodoo Vixen is not true retro style. According to their website they are, “a vintage inspired label which infuses retro, pin-up, and rockabilly styles with classic silhouettes to flatter the modern woman.”

They are based out of the UK and deal with retro inspired styles, and like other brands of their genre sizing is not the average US plus sizing. For reference I typically wear a 2X OR 20W at both Torrid and Lane Bryant. I wear a 3XL in Voodoo Vixen. Their size chart does seem pretty accurate so far. Though, if you have a small bust you could probably size down in this one as the skirt is pretty open.

Plus Size Voodoo Vixen DressMy shoes are a pair of Nine West Sharina Slingbacks. I have actually had mine for well over five years, but they match the dress almost perfectly. The pattern mine are in is no longer available, however they are always releasing new patterns and colors in this shoe style. This is what mine look like:
