With Fashion Week comes exclusive first-looks of new collections from various brands. The first one for the week was for the newest Fit for Me intimate apparel and casual wear. We were presented with a fashion show that showcased some of the latest style trends with styled with pieces from the collection by celebrity stylist, Denise Caldwell. Many of the looks demonstrated how the collection could work with items we already have in our own wardrobes transitioning from work to gym as well as highlighting just how smooth their seamless briefs and camis are under dresses. No panty lines! The collection will be available on Walmart.com and Amazon.com September 2017. Continue reading
Even with my crazy Friday work schedule I managed to sneak in a quick trip to the Fashion to Figure office in the city for their sample sale. This was my first sample sale so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was not disappointed as I got some awesome pieces for a steal. (Fortunately I was hard pressed for time otherwise I probably would have bought everything. $10 for a Boyfriend Blazer Vest?! Mine!)
This black quilted skater skirt is the first one I’ve ever tried on and liked. It is knee length which makes it appropriate enough for work and the pockets make it both functional and practical for more casual wear. The roll sleeve blouse fits as though it was designed specifically for me. The sleeves accommodate my thick arms without any problems and the gold accents just add a level of muted sophistication that make accessorizing unnecessary.
This outfit actually came together at the sale as fellow shoppers suggested that I pair these two pieces together. If there is one thing I can say about plus size fashion events is that you meet some very nice people who genuinely love fashion as much as you do and are quick to give you tips. I recommend attending one if you can, like the Big Fat Flea or NY Curvy Closet to see for yourself. You won’t regret it.
