All Dress April 2018 – Week Four & Five

All Dress April

All Dress April

I really wanted to have this posted way before now, but this past weekend really took a lot out of me. I feel like that is the story of my life, but I am doing the best I can with my life circumstances. I think a lot of you get that, and maybe that is why you have stuck with me as readers of this blog. My life isn’t always Instagram perfect and I am going to be real about that.

But let’s focus on the positive. We are here now, and I am finally able to focus and am back to a semi livable energy level. So let’s talk about what I wore the last two weeks of All Dress April. I bunched the fifth week in with week four since week five was only two days long.

If you haven’t seen the previous weeks and want to get caught up, make sure to check out week one, week two, and week three.

Day 22

Wearing Forever21 Plus on day 22 of All Dress April

On day 22 my outfit is from Forever21.

The top is their Off-the-Shoulder Lettuce-Edge Crop Top. It is not a super short crop top, and since I have the skirt raised higher, you wouldn’t even be able to tell its a crop top. But this particular style from Forever21 Plus does work really well for those of us with larger busts.

The skirt is also from Forever21, it is their Scuba Maxi Skirt in Black and White. This however it is currently sold out. They do have some other items in black and white that you may want to consider. Check out the Striped Wide Leg Pants, Striped Scuba Knit Skirt, and the Faux Leather Striped Mini Skirt.

Day 23

I missed this day.

 

Day 24

Day 24 of All Dress April and I am wearing Reb Dolls

This is from Rebdolls. It is their “Rumor Has It” Maxi Skater Set in White. There is only a couple of sizes left in this set, so if you are interested, check it out quickly.

This was my first time ordering from Rebdolls, but I was pleasantly surprised at the size range and quality of what was offered. I did purchase one other item, which you will see soon hopefully. And I believe this won’t be my last time ordering from them, so more in the future.

Day 25

Wearing Simply Be for day 25 of All Dress April

On day 25 I decided to wear another Simply Be dress. And this one is still available. It is their Embroidered Stud Mesh Dress. I have it paired with some Aerosoles Pumps that I have had for a long time.

Day 26

On Day 26 of All Dress April I am wearing head to toe Amazon available items.

I think my outfit from day 26 was the most popular on social media out of all of my looks from the month, or at least it got the most comments and requests for the links. I purchased this look to wear to Pride this year, and I thought I would share it with all of you ahead of time. This look, head to toe, is available for purchase on Amazon.

The dress is the Summer Fashion Plus Size Rainbow Print Sleeveless A-Line Mini Dress. I am in a size 3XL. I do think the dress runs true to their size chart, or possibly a little large. The fabric does have a lot of stretch.

I have it paired with:

My unicorn shoes were in white, but unfortunately they don’t have that color left anymore.

Day 27

Day 27 of All Dress April and it is the first day of the International Steampunk Symposium

Day 27 brought me to the first day of the International Steampunk Symposium. I didn’t actually get a picture of my costume that day, but I had this picture of the exact same thing I wore for Time Traveler’s Weekend at the Ohio Ren Fair. I actually think I did share this look before, but I am not 100% positive about that.

The dress is from Torrid’s Dr. Who Collection. And while this dress is long sold out, they do have a couple of sizes left in a similar dress. My boots are from Avenue, but they are long sold out. However, Torrid has several styles of lace up boots that would work well. To complete the look I have on a black felt derby hat from Spirit Halloween.

Day 28

Day 28 of All Dress April and day two of the Internationa Steampunk Convention

Day 28 and day two at the International Steampunk Symposium. This is the one and only picture I managed to get of my costume that day. Unfortunately it doesn’t show the whole costume. But once again, it is something I have had a picture of from a previous year, and nothing new here on the blog. The picture below is from two years ago in the same costume.

The black top is from Spin Doctor, but it has long since sold out. If you are looking for something similar, then you might try this Hell Bunny Scullion Blouse. The corset is a Daisy Corsets Women’s Top Drawer Cotton Steel Boned Overbust Corset With a Zipper Front in Navy Blue. My skirt is from Hips & Curves. It is their Victorian Bustle Skirt.

The accessories were both bought on Etsy. The necklace is from Dr. Brassy, but her store is currently empty and from my understanding may never be refilled again. The headdress is from the BlackUnicornShop.

Day 29

Day 29 of All Dress April and the final day of International Steampunk Symposium.

Day 29 was my last day at the International Steampunk Symposium. This outfit wasn’t complete, as I took off and forgot the jacket that was supposed to go with it. But here is what I have on:

As you can see, most of the accessory items are available on Amazon. I word of warning on the skirt. I have had a few issues with the fabric and seeming quality. But it is much more affordable than the average Victorian costume piece for a plus size skirt.

Day 30

I did not participate this day, I was just too worn out from the Symposium to move.

 

And that wraps up 2018 of All Dress April.

As a side not: Next year will be a bit different for me. Every since I started participating I have always had the Steampunk Symposium in there somewhere. Usually it is at the end. But next year things the Symposium got scheduled for a month earlier. So for those of you who look forward to the costumes, I will try my best to still do a post related to the Symposium. I am super excited about the theme that has been announced for next year. It will be Fantastic Beasts. Lots of plans have already started. Let me know in the comments below if you would like some posts about things I am making for costume and various things my steampunk group is doing.

10 Places To Find Plus Size Lingerie

With Valentine’s Day looming upon us I know many of you are making your plans. Maybe you are even planning on spicing your night up with some lingerie, that is if you know where to find it in your size. Finding nice lingerie in plus sizes can be challenging. That is why I wanted to give you this list of places to find plus size lingerie.

I will be including some pictures that link to products that are personal favorites from each of the retailers.

 

1 Cacique from Lane Bryant

No matter your opinion on Lane Bryant’s clothing style there is no denying they are a standout in the industry when it comes to their selection of underwear and lingerie from their Cacique line. And if you are lucky enough to live close to one of their stand alone Cacique stores then you have a large selection to actually try on before you buy.

       

2. Hips & Curves

Hips & Curves are long time online retailers serving the lingerie and costuming needs of plus size women. They also have the occasional piece of clothing, most of which is really well made.

3. Curvy Girl Lingerie

If you aren’t familiar with Curvy Girl Lingerie they are a plus size lingerie store located in San Jose, California. If you don’t live near their store, no worries they have a website. Worried about whether an item will fit? Don’t worry about that either, they got you. Crystal the owner is a plus size woman on a mission and she is there to help. She often has Facebook live post where you can ask questions. She post pictures with real plus size women wearing the items she sells. And if you are still unsure, just call the store.

4. Amazon

You can’t really be surprised at this point that Amazon made the list. They really have just about everything you can think of and that includes lingerie. Whether you are looking for something like a bra and panty set or you want a super sexy corset, Amazon has it.



5. Frederick’s of Hollywood

Frederick’s Of Hollywood and plus sizes have had a very up and down kind of rocky relationship over the years. At one point they had a very extensive collection of plus size offering both online and in store. Currently the selection is minimalistic and to the best of my knowledge only online. I hesitated to include them in this list, but I wanted people to know they do have plus sizes even if they aren’t a lot at the moment. If they don’t have your size or what you want in plus size, I encourage you all to email them to add more plus sizes back into their offerings. I do this because I know from my past experiences with Frederick’s of Hollywood that they do offer a quality product.

6. The Violet Vixen

If you’re looking for something more unique or for cos-play, then look to the Violet Vixen. They carry a selection of corsets and lingerie and accessories in both misses and plus sizes. They also carry clothing, but plus sizes are very limited in those.

7. Ashley Stewart

Like a sexy older sister, Ashley Stewart always has something in her closet for your special occasion. Valentine’s Day is no different. After you check out the selection of lingerie, don’t forget to check out their everyday clothing as well.

8. Simply Be

Just like all the other types of clothing Simply Be carries, they have a large selection in their lingerie. They have styles for all tastes and very size inclusive in sizes 6 to 28. Though order a little earlier if you are in the US since they ship from the UK.

           

 

9. Her Room

I think Her Room is like the Ikea of lingerie. That may sound odd, but they really have everything you could possibly need including hard to find items and sizes. And don’t forget to pick up something sexy or practical for the man in your life at their sister site His Room.

10. Figuresque

Though they have been around since 2003, Figuresque is a company I personally only recently discovered. They are very size inclusive offering items in size small to 6X. And great news they ship worldwide.
