All Dress April 2018 – Week One

All Dress April

All Dress April

Week one of All Dress April has finally come to an end, so it must be time for a recap. These always seem to be some of my most popular posts, so I decided to make a couple of changes this year. Changes that I hope are for the better.

You all know that I live with a few chronic pain conditions, some of which are affected by the weather, especially in the winter and early spring. So in previous years this has left me not posting about one to two days a week. In an effort to not leave these spots open, and to be able to share more items with you, I will be sharing photos previously taken but not posted for one reason or another.

Day 1

Mod print dress from Tiana B on Day 1 of All Dress April

This is a Tiana B. dress in a mod 60’s style print. I really love this style, and this dress is so comfy and great for minimal effort days. I paired it with a pair of wide calf boot’s I got from Zulily’s Journey Collection. I have had both of these pieces for quite some time, so I don’t think either of these items are still currently available, but you can get the same style of dress from Tiana B. as well as dresses in similar prints.

Day 2

Foil Leaf print wiggle dress from Avenue

This was a bad pain day for me, and so this was the first case of using a previously taken photo.

This dress is from the Avenue. It is their Metallic Floral Scuba Dress. It is a recent purchase, but unfortunately it sold out fast. I guess everyone loved it. It is definitely in a bodycon/wiggle style, but like most of the dresses from Avenue it is made to be more forgiving of any extra curves and rolls you may have in the middle. While they no longer have this exact dress, they do still have a similar dress. It is their Scroll Flocked Scuba Dress (limited sizes left in this dress).

The shoes I have paired with it are the Bandolino Women’s Mylah Peep-Toe Pump. These were actually the shoes I wore for my wedding, and I was kind of surprised to even find limited sizes of these still hanging around.

Day 3

Plus size maxi dress bought on Amazon

This is the Roiii Boho Floral Sleeveless Maxi Dress I got for the Hidden Gems of Amazon series I do here on the blog. Many of you loved the way this dress looked, but at the time sizes were selling out. I am happy to say it looks like they are finally restocked now. Sizes go up to a 3XL. For information on the fit and sizing make sure to check out the original post this dress appeared in.

Day 4

Dress from Boohoo Plus and leggings from Simply Be paired with Booties from the Avenue

This is the Plus Megan Tartan Frill Sleeve Smock Dress from Boohoo. I have it paired with black lace leggings. I bought mine at Simply Be a few years ago, but very similar ones are available now on Amazon. The booties are a pair of Cloud Walkers from the Avenue that I got a few years ago.

Day 5

Plus size Vintage inspired dress from Lindy Bop

For day five I went with something more to the roots of All Dress April, meaning something vintage style. This dress is from Lindy Bop. It is their Alanis Swing Dress in Black Polka Dots. (Just a note the link is to the UK site, but you change it to your country of preference. If you are in the USA, you can order from the US site or the UK site. I prefer the UK site because the sizing is easier. Don’t forget to change the currency as well.)

I have it paired with a basic black crinoline. and pair of kitten heels I bought on eBay a long time ago. The shoes are no longer available in the kitten heel size, but you can steel find the pump version from many different sellers on eBay still.

Day 6

Faux wrap dress from IGIGI plus size designer brand worn on day 6 of all dress april

This is the Truda Dress from IGIGI. It is a faux wrap dress. It is no longer available in this pattern, but the style is still available. If you follow me on my Instagram, then you already know that I don’t really care for the way this dress fits me. I love all of my other IGIGI dresses, but this one just doesn’t hang on me right, and I think it would suit a different body type better. It will most likely be going up on my Poshmark listings for sale relatively soon. So if you love this print and are also a size 20, make sure you are following me on there. If you are just joining Poshmark for the first time use my code KARENMSMITH77 and they will give you a $5 shopping credit.

The shoes are from Aerosoles, and I have had them for year. They are super comfortable as most Aerosoles are. But this particular style is not available any more.

Day 7

Trying out Fashion Nova Curve on day 7 of All Dress April

So if you didn’t know, skirts are also acceptable for All Dress April. So that left me able to also participate in my friend Jamie’s (aka retrocutie) style challenge Band Tee Saturday. Graphic tees are also totally acceptable for her challenge. Make sure you check out her blog No Delusions Of Grandeur too.

So since so many people had expressed interest in Fashion Nova over the last couple of months, I wanted to bring you a look from them. So both my skirt and top are from Fashion Nova. I have on the Kiss Me On The Lips Sequin Tee and the Charmer Bandage Skirt in Light Pink. I am sure that a lot of you would like me to go into my thoughts on Fashion Nova right now, but I don’t think I could put everything I need to say here. But don’t worry I promise there will be a blog post coming within the month about Fashion Nova.

The shoes I have on are a pair of velvet sneakers in light pink. The brand is Wanted and the style is called Valance. They are so comfy, and available in other color options.


If you didn’t see something like this week make sure to keep checking back, there are still 23 more days to go, and that means 23 more looks. Tell me in the comments below what you like, what you didn’t like. I still have some wiggle room on filling request if there is something you guys want to see this month, so make sure to let me know that as well.

Hidden Gems Of Amazon – Dark Floral Maxi Dress Perfect For Early Fall

Hidden Gems of Amazon

Recently I posted about the Plus Size Brands You Might Be Surprised To Find On Ebay, but what about all that clothing you see and have never heard of the brands before? We have all heard the horror stories of the pieces that were listed, even with measurements, that show up in China sizes. So what you thought was inch measurements ended up being centimeters instead. And now that 3X piece of clothing you have actually fits like a US size large at best. So what I thought I would do is occasionally order some pieces from Amazon when I find something both affordable and cute. (These will not be haul post, simply one o two items at a time) I will also post any flops. I will try to include their sizing charts if provided as well as pictures of the fit and other pertinent information. So with that in mind I want to start another series here on the blog caller Hidden Gems of Amazon.

Hidden Gems of Amazon

The first thing I found to share with you all is the Roiii Boho Ladies Summer Dark Floral Maxi Dress Plus Size.
This comes in size Small up to a XXXL and sells for $14.89 & free shipping for everyone.

They do have a size chart posted, which is nice, but as we all know size charts aren’t always accurate. But I did base my order on the size chart. For reference I am typically a size 20W at most US plus size brands like Torrid or Lane Bryant. My measurements are Bust:49″ Waist:42″ Hips:54.5″.

Size Measurement:

US/EU Small:—–Chest 32.6″, Waist 28.35″,Length:55.9″

US/EU MEDIUM:—-Chest 38.58″, Waist 29.92″,Length:55.9″

US/EU LARGE:—–Chest 41.33″, Waist 32.28″,Length:55.9″

US/EU X-LARGE:—Chest 45.66″, Waist 34.64″,Length:55.9″

US/EU XX-LARGE:–Chest 47.24″, Waist 37.79″,Length:55.9″

US/EU XXX-LARGE:–Chest 49.6″, Waist 40.15″,Length:55.9″


After looking the size chart over I decided to go with the XXX-Large. When you are actually ordering on the page it will be marked 3X. They ship out of China, but based on the way their size chart is it seems they are using UK sizing.

When I ordered I was given the expected delivery date of October 14, however I received it on September 12. That was really quick for something coming from China.

Roiii plus size Maxi DressI was quite happy with the product I received. The fabric has a lot of stretch to it. I probably could have sized down one and been okay, but I prefer it to not be overly tight. I think this XXXL size could comfortably fit up to a size 22W.

The fabric is on the thinner side, but not so thin that you couldn’t comfortably wear it with a jacket in early fall. In fact this is that perfect dark floral that is so in right now. If you are somewhere that has more temperate weather you could realistically wear this all year round.

It seems Roiii Plus Sizes has quite a few dresses and coats as options. I do encourage you to check the size charts on each and every item because it seems that they don’t have one standard size chart. But size 22 does seem to be the largest this brand will fit (potentially a size 24 if you like a very tight fit).

With it I have the same sandals I showed you a couple of posts ago. They are the Mootsies Tootsies Naylorr Women Open Toe Canvas Sandals. They have several color options currently available.

I hope you have found this helpful. If there are any specific brands on Amazon people would like me to take a look at, feel free to post it in the comments or send me a message through the contact page. I just might feature the brand your interested in.
