20 Plus Size Options for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and many of you are still looking to create just the right look.  While dresses can be a great option (see here for little red dresses), if you are looking for something a bit different this year, opt for a jumpsuit or separates instead.  You will still look amazing and you will have the added bonus of being able to pair those pieces with other items in your wardrobe long after Valentine's Day is over. 

Below, I've compiled a few plus-size options that would be absolutely perfect for Valentine's Day.  My favorites are the MYNT1792 jumpsuit (1st row - middle) and the BB Dakota lace skirt (4th row - left).  Be sure to let me know in the comments which items you are loving.

15 Plus Size Pieces to Wear on Lazy Days in the Winter

Now that the cold weather is settling in, I know many of us are planning to stay in as much as possible.  However, if you do need to venture out and you don't want to get all dolled up, but you also don't want to run into people you know (e.g. your ex, a crush, etc.) looking a mess (because that is what always happens), I've put together some cozy and cute pieces that you can laze around in and that could easily work if you needed to run a few quick errands.

The key to looking put together, even in your casual clothing, is choosing simple pieces that have fun details.  For example, instead of wearing a hoodie and sweat pants, throw on a cool cardigan (my favorite is the blue checkered one) and a pair of leggings with interesting details, like the pleated pair below (last row - middle) (see me in them here and here).  It will take the same amount of time and effort and you will great.

Every year I make it my duty to hunt for the perfect little white coat.  However, shopping for a coat in plus sizes is often quite challenging, especially when you have something particular in mind.  While I'm not quite sure that I've found the one for me, I wanted to share a few options that I found that I really like.  I'm particularly fond of the DKNY coat (2nd row - left) and the Forever 21+ coat (second row - middle).

18 Plus Size Pieces to Amp Up Your Work Wardrobe

Happy New Year! One of the many things I love about a new year is that it can be the push so many of us need to make some necessary changes in our lives, no matter how small.  A change that I often make at the start of the new year is to my wardrobe.  I remove the clutter, usually old and unworn items, from my closet to make room for pieces that can breathe new life into my existing wardrobe.

If there's one area in most of our wardrobes that I'm sure could use a bit of vamping up, it's our workwear.  If you're anything like me, your office attire consists of a lot of black.  While there's nothing wrong with that, an easy way to spice it up is by looking for pieces in different colors.  If you're not too fond of color, you could play with prints, color-blocking (even if just in black and white) and textured fabrics to make your looks a bit more interesting.   Below are some great plus-size pieces that can upgrade your workwear and can be worn after hours.
