One Sleeve Sweater Layering

When I sent the link of this sweater to my best friend she didn’t hold back about how much she hated the design. A one shoulder sweater? How does one wear this thing without being cold? Both quite valid questions considering how cold NYC weather can get, often without much warning.

The funny thing is that my first thought was that this was the perfect piece for some fun layering style. As cozy as chunky knit sweaters are, I find that layering help keep fall styles a bit more chic and interesting. After all why not add to your warmth and look good at the same time? And while, plus size sweaters with random cut-outs will forever be the bane of my existence (seriously, why are these still a thing?), pieces like this one from ELOQUII present a styling challenge that I will happily accept so here is how I did.

Haunted Attractions

I LOVE Halloween and spooky season but I’m not a huge fan of haunted houses, as in the ones that involve costumed actors jumping from dark corners often armed with something like a knife, a hammer or worse, a chainsaw. I also dont really enjoy any slasher horror films that feature antagonists that inspire/influence the themes present on those performance-based haunted houses.

Vampires, werewolves, witches and actual ghosts are more my cup of tea. So I’l tend to decline invites to the aforementioned popular Halloween season pastime in favor of actual haunts.

Some are either still in regular use, be it as a museum or even as a restaurant, and others have since been abandoned and left behind as historic landmarked ruins.

3Wishes for Halloween

When it comes to shopping for plus size Halloween costumes can be kind of tricky without many treats to be found. I honestly can’t even remember the last time I got myself a store-bought Halloween costume. As much as I love Halloween and dressing up in costume, I tend to just work with what I have in my closet that or I ask a family member that can sew to make me somethings if I can’t find pieces I need. The same goes for my cosplay. So it was super fun to get a chance to try something else this year with this latest collab with online retailer – 3Wishes.

Halloween is just around the corner but don’t worry you still have some time to get a great a great look together and 3Wishes is definitely the place to check out if you’re in the market for a creative and unique costume in your size.
