A Curvy Holiday Lookbook Part 3: Holiday Social Party



Outfit-C/O SWAK Designs, Blazer-Old(Similar), Shoes-Aldo, Vest-Old(Similar)






Hey y’all! Welcome to the last look for the Curvy Holiday lookbook! We are featuring looks for a Holiday Social Party. The Holidays are the perfect time for you to experiment with your look! With everything being so over the top you during this season there is no better time than the present to try out a two piece look, throw on a fur, wear a higher heel, or try new make up! You will be surprised with what looks you might fall in love with.

Anytime I go out with friends I always try to take it up a notch. This holiday season I am trying to continue and push my boundaries and try looks that are out of my box. For this post I tried this fabulously, comfortable two piece body con look from SWAK Designs. Previously I’ve discussed my hesitancy with wearing body con, but I am working hard to get out of my box. The comfort and fit of this two pieces look was the key thing that made me love this look. It’s hard to find two piece plus size looks that aren’t junior plus sizes so I was excited that this one goes up to a 4x. It has ample stretch and I found all of the lengths to be perfect for my body. I paired this with my black tuxedo blazer and my fur vest to bring everything together and to stay warm! This look is perfect for a holiday celebration and for any event coming up beyond this season.

What are y’all wearing this holiday?

30PlusStyle:LBD Lookbook







It’s time for another edition of 30plusstyle! This time around we are talking about the little black dress! Everyone women needs a little black dress it’s a plain and simple fact.  The little black dress is a closet staple that is good for any situation. If I can be honest most women probably need three little black dresses one for play, one for work and one for formal occasions.  As time has gone on the little black dress has evolved, it has taken different shapes, forms and styles.

The little black jumpsuit has become synonymous with the little black dress in my closet. Though I find the lbd necessary, I now feel like the jumpsuit offers a fresh take on the closet staple. This jumpsuit easily transitions from occasion to occasion just like the lbd. It was especially perfect for the holiday celebration I went to that evening! 

Well y’all I am sad to say this is our last 30 Plus Style. Last year we started on this journey to let you know that style not only has no size it also has no age! I’ve learned so much and made some amazing friends through this style journey! We hope you will continue to use your #30PlusStyle hashtag to show us what you got! This week we have two guest bloggers joining us Cynthia from Fight of the Fat Girl and Jennae from Green and Gorgeous! Please continue to follow and read my other 30plusstyle bloggers post! These ladies are truly amazing:

Christmas Styling With Eloquii

Skirt-c/o Eloquii, Sweater-Talbots,Shirt&Vest -Old Navy(Old), Shoes-Shoedazzle(sold out, available in wine)



One of my favorite things about the holiday season is getting together with friends. I love having long dinners, more cocktails than normal and looking at everyone’s festive fashions. But even I will admit it’s hard to come up with great looks to wear constantly throughout the holiday season.  I have joined to together with a few of my bloggers boos and our favorite brand Eloquii, to show how we get dressed to go to a few different occasions. We selected one of two skirts from Eloquii to style for a certain holiday occasion. My occasion was dinner at my best friend’s house!

Under normal circumstances if I was going to my BFF’s house to hang out I would be extremely comfortable and not put in much effort, but during the holidays you never know who might pop up. Taking it up a notch is in order. For this look I stepped out of the box and went for a grungier look. I loved this boots that I picked up from ShoeDazzle!  They are not at all my norm, but I have been trying again to further push myself out of my comfort zone. I thought this look was great for hanging out with friends. 

What are your go to pieces for the Holiday?

A Curvy Holiday Series: Part 1: Office Holiday Party

Sweater-Talbots, Skirt-Eloquii(Similar), blouse-(old), Shoes-Old, Sunnies-Prada






It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go! The holiday season is in full swing and like many people my biggest issue is what am I going to wear too all of the different functions I have to attend. This year I am participating in a A Curvy Holiday Series with several other bloggers to help our readers with a few ideas on what to wear during the season. The first edition of this series is what to wear for your Office Holiday Party.

Office Holiday parties can have various themes, locations and times but I always try to stick to the same rules when it comes to getting dressed. Here are a few:
  • Remember even if your party is not at work you will still be in a work environment. Don’t wear anything that you do not want your co-workers to see you wearing. (i.e. anything to tight, revealing, short or inappropriate for the office).
  • It’s okay to take it up a notch for an evening or dressier event.
  • Make sure your ugly Christmas sweater isn’t someone else's real sweater (yep that did happen to my friend).
In my office we have a Holiday luncheon which is during our day hours. For this year I am wearing my Talbot’s holiday sweater with my favorite red midi-skirt from Eloquii.  I thought the look was a great pairing of my everyday clothing and my holiday favorites! This time of the year is such a great time to step out of the box and be cute kitchy with our wardrobes.

Does your office have a holiday party? What are you wearing?

Custom...


Coat-Old Navy(old)(Similar), turtleneck-Old Navy(in store), Skirt(eShakti), Shoes-(old)






In the world of fast everything it’s great to find a place that offers customization to their customer. That’s one of the reasons that I like eShakti. Their wide range of clothing goes from a size 0 to 36W. All of their products are customizable with options on sleeve type, length, and skirt type just to name a few. Each item has various tweaks that ensure that each garment is to your liking.  

I paired this skirt from eShakti with my striped turtleneck, giving me the retro vibe that I was looking for. A surprising fact about this skirt was that it’s fully lined ensuring that the item is season less. It can just as easily be worn with a sweater or a tank top!  It definitely didn’t hurt that this was in my favorite color combo of navy and red.

How do you feel about customizable items? Have you tried eShakti yet?
