All Dress April 2018 – Week Two

All Dress April

All Dress April

I can barely believe it, but we are already two weeks into April. And that means its time for another recap. If you missed it, you can check out week one.

Week two was a bit of a whirlwind for me. I had a lot of work to do, but I also had a lot of days where I just wasn’t feeling well. But it looks like the tide is turning. Our weather has finally warmed up a bit with no precipitation. And I have had a few days in a row now that I actually felt well.

But you guys are here to find out about the clothes. As always I will link to anything that is still available, or alternatively if the item is not available but something extremely similar is available I will also link to that instead.

Day 8

Unique Vintage Plus Size 1950s Wine Purple Delores Swing Dress with Sleeves

This is the Unique Vintage Plus Size 1950s Delores Swing Dress with Sleeves in Wine Purple. Now this is no longer available in this color, however this dress is available in many different colors and patterns. It is available in both misses and plus sizes. Make sure that you check the sizing. Just like most vintage lines, their brand runs very small. I am in their largest size a 4X which they say is equal to a 20. That seems accurate, though there is extra room to stretch with the fabric.

I have it paired with some Bandolino peep toe pumps in a similar wine color.

 

Day 9

This is the Power Dress from Society Plus. It comes in five color options. If you are interested in getting this dress, act now. Society Plus is clearancing this style out. If you want more information on the fit check out my previous blog post about this dress.

I have paired with it some Madden Girl Peep Toe Pumps that I have had for a long time.

 

Day 10

This is a maxi length sweater dress that I got from Simply Be back in the fall. It is no longer available. But if you like the look of the dress, but don’t care if it is a sweater dress, then their T-Shirt Maxi Dress should give you a very similar look.

 

Day 11

This is a SWAK Designs maxi that I have had for the longest time. This particular style is no longer available, however the Lois Maxi Dress is very similar. The biggest difference is that the Lois Maxi had 3/4 length sleeves. If you are a maxi dress lover take the time to look around the SWAK website, they really have some great styles for all body types and they are very size inclusive.

 

Day 12

This was my fun outfit for the week. I think everyone needs some clothes that are just fun. Both pieces are from Forever 21. I have on their ETA Stripe Tiered High-Low Skirt (this is available in other colors as well)  and the Ruched Crop Top. The crop top is adjustable so you can show as much or as little skin as you like. And it definitely is one that works for larger busts. If you haven’t looked at Forever 21 in a while, then you should check them out. Their plus size selection has grown a lot and they are starting to include other brands on their site.

 

Day 13

As many of you know I ordered my first Amazon Prime Wardrobe box. And while I don’t want to get into a review here since there is one coming very soon, I did share some of the things I got in this week looks. This is the Lark & Ro Women’s Modern Stretch Cap-Sleeve Fit-and-Flare Dress.

I have it paired with the Panacea Jet Tassel Pendant Necklace that I also got on Prime Wardrobe along with a pair of Jelly Pop heels that I already owned.

 

Day 14

And on the final day of week two I wore a second dress from Prime Wardrobe. This is the Tiana B Women’s Split Sleeve Patchwork Print Dress.

I have paired with it the Naturalizer Women’s Neina Huarache Sandal, also available on Prime Wardrobe.

I will also be adding this and all the other items I got on Prime Wardrobe to my Amazon recommended list to make it easier for everyone to find at any time.

7 Places To Buy Plus Size Wedding Dresses under $500

Plus Size Wedding Dresses Under $500

Plus Size Wedding Dresses Under $500

As many of you may know, before I started my blog I was writing for a plus size bridal magazine called Pretty Pear Bride. And if you are a plus size bride, I highly recommend you take the time to check it out, it can be a valuable resource.

Since we are about to be amid what we all know as wedding season, I thought now might be a good time to reconnect with my past and cover the topic of affordable wedding dresses. Wedding dresses can get pricey, but not all of us want or can put a lot of money towards a dress we will only wear once. I know what a struggle it can be to find your dream dress on a tight budget.

That is why I wanted to show you all some places you can find wedding dresses under $500 as well as share some of my favorites from each place. And don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those things where I list seven different places where you can find one dress barely under $500. There will actually be more than one place you can actually find a dress under $100.

1. Kiyonna
Plus size Amour Lace Wedding Gown from Kiyonna

Plus size Spotlight Cinch Dress by Kiyonna

You aren’t going to find the traditional princess wedding dress at Kiyonna, but you will find a selection of dresses in a variety of more relaxed styles. The offerings are perfect for anything from a vintage style wedding to a super chill beach wedding. Kiyonna Dresses are available in sizes 0X to 5X. And their prices range from $98 to $288.

 

2. SWAK (a.k.a. Sealed With A Kiss Designs)
Plus Size Kara Lace Dress by Sealed With A Kiss Designs

Plus size Eternity Maxi Convertible Dress from SWAK

SWAK doesn’t exactly have a wedding dress section. But if you are looking for a white dress with beachy, boho vibes, then you just might find your dress here. They have a handful of their designs available in white all under $100. Their dresses come in sizes 1X to 6X or 14 to 36.

 

3. David’s Bridal

If you are looking for a more traditional bridal gowns, then David’s Bridal is a good place to start looking. Plus it is one of the few places you can actually go try the gowns on in person and they actually have samples in plus sizes. They do have dresses that go over $500, so keep that in mind when looking. But original prices start at $249, and they often have sales that mark dresses down to $99. I have even seen dresses over a $1000 marked down under the $500 mark on some of their sales. Their plus size range comes in sizes 14W to 30W.

 

4. Amazon
Now and Forever Layered Mermaid Wedding Dresses available in plus sizes on Amazon

High Neck Princess Lace Tulle Wedding Dress available in plus sizes on Amazon

Surprise, surprise, Amazon made the list. They by far have the largest variety of style and brands available under $500. Of course like anything else, when it comes to plus sizes on Amazon you may worry that they won’t be true to size. I have seen quite a few videos of people trying on Amazon wedding dresses, and for the most part they surprisingly are okay for their prices, even the ones under $100. My advice would be, if you are going to buy from Amazon 1. make sure you check the sellers size chart, not the amazon one. Also if the seller doesn’t have a size chart, then don’t order from them. And 2. Order early, so if something needs to be returned or altered you have plenty of time. As for prices, there seem to be wedding dresses starting at $12 and the keep going well above the $500 mark. Sizes are all over the place depending on the brand, but most like the ones I have pictured go up to about a size 28W. Keep in mind that these, like most bridal run one to two sizes small. This may not be the case with some of the other more dedicated to plus size brands.

 

5. Sydney’s Closet

If you aren’t familiar with Sydney’s Closet then I am simultaneously both surprised and not surprised. I am surprised because they have been around for a long time offering plus size women beautiful and affordable formal wear. I am not surprised because they don’t get talked about a lot that I see, and they are kind of in a very niche market. They offer all sorts of formal wear, and they always have a selection of plus size wedding dresses. At the moment all of the dresses they have, with the exception of one, is under $500. Dresses are available in sizes 14 to 4, but I believe their bridal line stops at size 34 (don’t quote me on that.).

 

6. Society +
Short Society+ Premium Blush Tutu for plus sizes

Premium Tutu - Long Champagne in plus sizes by Society Plus

You may not know this, but Society Plus has a selection of premium tutus for weddings that are pre-order only. I know this isn’t exactly a wedding dress, but I thought these would be a good option for some. It could work, not only for those who just like the look, but also anyone who has a hard time getting the right fit in a dress. Prices range from $90 to $120 and they are available in 14/16 to 30/32.

 

7. ASOS Curve
ASOS CURVE BRIDAL Tulle Maxi Prom Dress

ASOS CURVE BRIDAL Tulle Maxi Prom Dress

ASOS EDITION CURVE BRIDAL Lace Long Sleeve Crop Top Maxi Dress

ASOS EDITION CURVE BRIDAL Lace Long Sleeve Crop Top Maxi Dress

 

 

Not a large collection available at ASOS, but definitely some designs I haven’t seen anywhere else for plus sizes. Perhaps if you are a bride that is looking for something more unique, ASOS may be the place to check. Their collection of dresses are all under $300. Sizes vary a bit depending on the dress, but most are available in 12 to 26.

 

This isn’t really part of the list because they aren’t under $500, but I wanted to give an honorable mention to the Yuliya Raquel website. Not only does she have some pre-made wedding dress designs, but she also has these two popular designs from her days at IGIGI that you can now customize. And those customized dresses will only run $700 each. The vintage lace dress was my own wedding dress, and I resold mine after the wedding. To this day, 5 years later, I am still getting women emailing me asking if I still have it, because its their dream dress. So if it was your dream dress as well, know you can still get it.

Holiday Look Book 2017

Holiday 2017 Lookbook

Holiday 2017 Lookbook

Looking for something special to wear to one of those many Holiday Parties? Don’t worry, I got you covered. I have looks to share for every occasion and budget. Whether you are looking for something low-key for that office party or something super sexy to wear out on New Years Eve, I have it all.B

When I put this look book together I wanted to include some styles you don’t always see in most look books. I think there are lots of people who feel a little left out of these. Not everyone gets super dressed up. Maybe you are more of jeans and tee kind of girl and you just want to add a little sparkle to your look. I wanted to make sure you were included as well. So keep in mind while looking through this that not every look will be what you traditionally think of as a holiday look.

I will be showing these in order of most casual to dressiest. I will include links to items available as well as sizes I am wearing. I will try to include any other relevant information I think is important to have as well as occasional styling suggestions. As always I hope you guys find this helpful.

For reference, I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant or Torrid. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″. I wear a 40DDD/E Bra in most brands. I wear a size 9 shoe, and I am in between a medium and wide width.

 

Alternative Holiday look for the jeans and tshirt kind of girl

You can still be in jeans and look and feel more dressed up. I wanted to do this look for all you ladies who hate dresses and feel more at home in jeans. I totally get that dresses are not practical for everyone. To make this feel more fit for the occasion I chose a pair of jeggings that had rhinestone trim at the hem. And all of the other pieces, including the shoes, are in a velvet fabric to give this outfit a more luxe feel for the holidays. And that jacket is all about the little details. Here is what I have on:

Jacket: Velvet Moto Jacket from Torrid – comes in sizes 00 to 6. I have on a size 2.

Top: Floral Burnout Velvet Mock Neck Top from Torrid – comes in sizes 00 to 6. I have on a size 2.

Jegging: Virtual Stretch® Chevron Stone Jegging in Dark Wash from the Avenue – comes in sizes 14 to 26. Available in Average, Petite, and Tall sizes. I have on a 20 average.

Shoes: Wanted Womens Valance Slip On Tennis Shoes – comes in sizes 6 to 10 Medium Width. I have on a size 9 and they fit quite comfortably. They come in three colors options. I have on the nude color, but I think they look pink.

 

Plus Size Holiday look featuring Simply Be and Avenue

For this look I wanted to give you something that was both fashionable but super comfortable. Maybe you’re the girl who likes to take lots of family photos on Christmas morning, or maybe you aren’t into dresses but jeans aren’t your thing either. And whether this is the holiday outfit for you or not, I highly recommend getting a pair of leggings. They feel so soft and luxurious. I could wear them for days. Here is what I have on:

Headband: Velvet Stretch Headband from Forever 21 – not currently available online.

Top: Soft Peplum Top With Contrast Bow Back from Simply Be – comes in sizes 8 to 28. Available in two color option. I have on a size 20 in the Dark Red color.

Leggings: Damask Embossed Velvet Legging from Avenue – comes in sizes S/M to L/XL. I have on the size M/L. Make sure you check out the size charts on this one, the sizing is very different.

Shoes: Jellypop Women’s Angel Dress Pump – no longer available online. However you might also like the Jellypop Women’s ELVA dress Pump or the Jellypop Women’s Cayla Dress Pump. Comes in sizes 6 to 11.

 

City Chic Garden Rose Fit & Flare Dress

It may not seem like it to people who don’t know me well, but I am actually a pretty practical person. So I wanted to offer an option that was a cocktail dress, appropriate for a holiday party, and still be wearable beyond just the holidays. This is just barely a cocktail dress, and so with the right accessories it could also be appropriate for work or church if that is part of your life. Here is what I have on:

Dress: Rose Garden Printed Fit & Flare Dress from City Chic – currently available in most sizes between XS14 to XXL24. I have on a L20. This is currently on sale for $69.00, plus City Chic has an extra 30% off sale items with code ‘XMAS30’.  If you love the print, but they are out of your size or the style isn’t for you, you should also take a look at the Blackberry Peplum Rose Dress from City Chic.

Shoes: My shoes are a pair of Steve Madden Pumps that I have had forever, and they are no longer sold in this style. However the Steve Madden Women’s Ulltra Pump is a very similar style. In my personal experience, I have Steve Madden heels to be more comfortable than the average heels. And because these are a lower heel they might be better for dancing if that is something on your agenda.

 

Lace Plus Size 3/4 Sleeves Midi Business Cocktail on Amazon

This I think leans more towards the traditional cocktail dress look most people will be expecting. Even though it may not be in traditional Christmas colors, it is available in some of those colors. I did want to give you at least one traditional look, but I wanted to show it in this alternative color because I think it is something will last longer in your closet and be appropriate for more occasions. This is also a very affordable look for those of you on a budget. Here is what I have on:

Dress: Lace Plus Size 3/4 Sleeves Midi Business Cocktail Dress from GMHO – comes in sizes 0X to 5X. Available in four-color options. I have on a 2X in the blue color. Please note that their size chart is accurate and you will find it in the product description area, do not go by the link that takes you to Amazon’s general size chart.

Shoes: Envy Women’s Shoe Hugs N Kisses Retro Studded T-strap Genuine Leather Pump – comes in size 7M to 10M (half sizes available). Available in three color options. I have on a size 10M in Black.

 

Plus size Holiday outfit from City Chic and Forever 21

This look is definitely leaning towards New Years Eve, but its your life, don’t let me tell you when its appropriate to wear something. I really wanted to create a look that was both fun and glittery. But I wanted to make it for the girl who is part princess and all badass. Here is what I have on:

Jacket: I have on a sheer sleeve zip front jacket from City Chic. This particular jacket is no longer available. However, the Drapey Blazer Jacket from City Chic is very similar. The only real difference is that it does not zip up the front. It is currently available in most sizes between XS14 to XL22, some sizes sold out in this color. If you search the site there are also other colors available.

Bodysuit: Plus Size Sequin Bodysuit from Forever 21 – comes in sizes 0X to 3X. I have on the size 3X(Forever 21 is Junior Plus, so I have to size up one size in most of their items). Just a couple of notes I thought people would be interested in. The sequins are strictly on the front upper body. Also, there are no snaps to secure, you simply step into this bodysuit. The fabric is very stretchy.

Tutu: This particular tutu was bought several years ago from a company that no longer exists. However, if you are looking for a high quality tutu at a reasonable price, I will always recommend the tutus from Society Plus. I have one in white that I have shown here on the blog several times, you can’t go wrong with them.

Shoes: I have on a pair of Madden Girl heeled sandals I have had for years. If you are looking for something similar you might try the Madden Girl Women’s Lexxx Heeled Sandal. I think they have a very similar look.

 

Forever 21 and Avenue come together to make a sexy holiday look

This is the final look in this Holiday look book. But I couldn’t wrap things up without sharing at least one full-out sexy and glam look. I can just imagine so many ladies loving this look for New Years. This is definitely the look for the woman who wants all eyes on her. Here is what I have on:

Jacket: Plus Size Faux Fur Coat from Forever 21 – comes in sizes 0X to 3X. Available in two color options. I have on a size 3X in the Plum color.

Dress: Plus Size Lace-Up Combo Dress from Forever 21 – comes in sizes 0X to 3X. Available in two color options. I have on a size 3X in black. One note, on Forever 21’s website the models look like they have a cami on under the dress. That does not come with the dress. It is sheer on top. You will need to either have a cami or do like I did and wear a matching bra.

Shoes: Kimberly Over the Knee Boot from Avenue – comes in size 7W to 13W. They are wide calf as well. Comes in two color/fabric options. I have on the 9W in the black snake-skin print. (Just FYI, these seem to be on sale for 70% off right now, not sure how long this sale will last.)

 

And that is all for my Holiday Look Book. I welcome your feedback. And please tell me in the comments below if you had a favorite look.

The Best Plus Size Sales This 2017 Labor Day Weekend

Labor day sales

Labor day sales

Week Four & Five of #AllDressApril 2017

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

 

This post has been delayed for too long. Unfortunately I got sick near the end of All Dress April, and it has been hard to recover. But I am starting to feel better and I want to make sure to finish up this series for the years. If you have missed the previous post and want to start from the beginning, you can begin with Week 1.

I found I missed a lot of days this last week and a half due to my illness, but I did the best that I could. There were also a couple of days I couldn’t get a picture of what I wore. I will make notes for what happened each day.

 

Day 22

Day 22 of All Dress April. Maxi dress from Torrid

This is the Tiered Jersey Maxi Dress in black from Torrid. This color is no longer available, but they still have some sizes in the heather gray color. I have it paired with a denim jacket from Mwah Jeans. The hair piece is from Earth Bound Trading Company.

Day 23

I was not able to participate this day.

 

Day 24

I believe I wore a dress this day, but forgot to take a picture.

 

Day 25

City Chic Fleetwood Maxi Dress for Day 25 of All Dress April

This is the Fleetwood Maxi Dress from City Chic. At this time it is not available on their website. (I highly suggest that if you want them to bring it back you send them an email request) It may or may not be brought back, sometimes they do bring back popular items. In the meantime if you want this dress, you might consider the Luxe Gunmetal Leopard Printed Maxi Dress. It is very similar. The only differences I see is the sleeve is slightly different and its in a print.

Day 26

Day 26 of #AllDressApril

This dress is from Rue21+. It is no longer available on their website and I don’t see anything similar to recommend. The shoes I have on are a pair of Isaac Mizrahi wedges that I picked up from a seller on eBay.

Day 27

Wrap dress for the curvy body

This is the Power Dress from Society Plus. They were so kind to send me this dress to share with all of you during All Dress April. Make sure you check out full review. They have also just released this dress in a light pink and burgundy color block pattern for summer.

Day 28

I actually did wear a dress this day, but I didn’t get a picture because everything was so hurried.

 

Day 29

Day 29 of All Dress April

I didn’t have anyone to take pictures for me at the con, and I had forgotten my tripod for my actual camera. So a bad mirror selfie from my cell phone was all I could manage in my presses for time day. This one didn’t even get posted to Instagram.

The dress, not that you can see that much of it, is from Tripp bought at Torrid last year. As I write this, they do have a few left at Hot Topic.

Day 30

I was not able to wear a dress this day.

 

Tell me in the comments below what your favorite dress was, that you wore or saw this April.

Welcome To #AllDressApril And So Much More

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

All Dress April 2017 #AllDressApril

Today is the first day of April and it marks the first day of #AllDressApril. If you don’t know what I am talking about you probably haven’t been following me very long because in addition to participating last year, I have mentioned this no less than three times since the first of January. (I can’t help myself I am excited, I love dresses)

Essentially All Dress April or #AllDressApril is of course in April. The challenge is to wear a dress or skirt every day of April and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #AllDressApril. Of course everyone understands when you can’t, life happens. If you don’t do Instagram, no worries. You can alternatively post your photos to the Facebook Event Page.

 

Find the perfect look for everyone starring in your special day at Adrianna Papell! Dresses and gowns for every event. Shop the Bridal Suite!

Lots of bloggers and just women who have a love for fashion will be participating. It’s a great way to connect with others who love dresses and fashion as much as you do. And its a great way to find inspiration for your wardrobe. Everyone is welcome to participate, all body types, shapes and sizes. This should be a true body positive experience.

I have some things I am really excited to share with you. All this month I will be doing my best to show you completely different things than what I showed last year. I can’t promise there won’t be a few pieces duplicated though. I will be doing recaps for each week along with links to anything that is still purchasable.

I have a few special featured looks from places like Society Plus, Simply Be, and City Chic. And there will be Hidden Gems Of Amazon thrown in there somewhere too. But most exciting of all, and what I have been dying to announce for quite some time, later this month I will be hosting a giveaway with City Chic. It’s a really great one too, so make sure you keep watch for it. I will give you all the details then.

If you would like to take a look at the recaps from last year you can check out Week One, Week Two, and Weeks Three and Four.

Tell me in the comments if you will be participating in All Dress April. And make sure to tell me where I can follow you if you are participating.

Plus Size OOTD – The Dress For Every Body

Society Plus Skater Dress in Marsala

If you are always looking for that perfect dress that looks great on you, look no further than the skater dress. The skater dress is just one of those silhouettes that look good on every body shape and size. So it just comes down to finding a color and fabric selection that you like.

For sizing reference I typically wear a size 2X or 20W at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid. My measurements are Bust:49″ Waist:42″ Hips:54″

Society Plus Skater Dress in Marsala

This particular one I am wearing is the Tinley Solid Skater Dress in Marsala from Society Plus. It comes in size 14/16 to 30/32. I am wearing a size 18/20. It is made in the popular scuba fabric, which is also a great fabric for everyone.

 

Plus size skater dress from Society Plus

The Tinley Solid Skater Dress comes in three color option currently. There is the Marsala, like I am wearing, or there is also black and charcoal as options. But they have many other styles of skater dresses on the Society Plus website, many of which are in their Winter Clearance Event Sale.

 

Tinley Skater Dress from Society Plus paired with Sketchers

With it I have paired some Relaxed Fit Skechers. The exact ones I am wearing are not available any more, but there are several similar available if you look at the link provided.

I know I show quite a bit of Skechers shoes, and there is a reason for that. I am what I would say is in between a wide width and a medium width. I have a hard time finding shoes because of this, especially flats. I can get my foot in a lot of medium width shoes, but they are usually a little snug and will cause blisters if I push it, or at the very least just be really uncomfortable. I can also wear a lot of wide widths, but they are hard to find where I live. And not all do fit. Some are a touch too big which causes them to slip when I walk. And they cause blisters from rubbing. But Skechers, and a few other brands, just naturally run a little wider than the rest. They always fit me perfect without having to worry about finding a wide width. And a lot of their shoes have a comfort sole, which is a huge bonus.

 

Skater dresses look great on every body type.

Plus Size OOTD – It’s All About The Midi

Society Plus Midi Skirt and Asos Curve Mock Neck Sweater

Society Plus Midi Skirt and Asos Curve Mock Neck Sweater

I wear all different lengths of skirts, but since I was a very young girl I have always felt that the midi length skirt was the perfect length. There is something about length that just screams femininity to me. So I was sad that for years they just weren’t in style. But for a little over a year now they have made a comeback in a big way.

Here I am wearing the Soiree Midi Skirt from Society Plus. This comes in seven color options. I have on the Navy/Pink Floral option. This particular pattern is sold out in a couple of sizes because all of these skirts have been included in their Winter Clearance sale. However all sizes are available in several of the patterns. The price is great. Originally they were $69.99, now just $28.00. And I believe this is also combinable with the Love Leap event which gives you $15, $35, or $100 off depending on how much you spend. That is potentially 50% off. But the LoveLeap event end at Midnight tonight. (2/15/17)

This plus size Soiree Midi Skirt from Society Plus is made for twirling

This is one of those skirts that are made for twirling. And who doesn’t love a skirt that twirls? I know I certainly do. It has a lot of natural volume to it. You could get even more volume by putting a petticoat under it.

I am wearing a size 18/20. For reference I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Torrid and Lane Bryant. My measurements are Bust:49″ Waist:42″ Hips:54″.

ASOS Plus Size New Look Plus Turtleneck Top

I have paired with it a the New Look Plus Turtleneck Top from ASOS. I am wearing a size US 18/UK 22. There is only a couple of sizes left in these. So if they don’t have your size and you want something that will go with it equally as well, you might try the Sheer Luck Long Sleeve Top in Navy from Society Plus.

Graceland Shoes with my Plus Size OOTD

My shoes are a pair of Graceland Shoes. I have had them for several years now, so they are no longer available. But I did find a similar pair, the Graceland Bar Shoes. This brand is reasonably prices and relatively comfortable. One warning though. I do think they run a little small in length, not width. I typically wear a US 9, but in this brand I always have to buy a US 10 or EU 40.

 

Tell me in the comments below what your favorite skirt length is.

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.
City Chic US

 

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.

 

In the comments below tell me what you are planning on wearing for Valentine’s Day.
