Precious Lee for Christian Siriano

One would think my love of clothes and style would mean that I get absolutely giddy when fashion week rolls around, but the truth is I find the whole thing to be extremely frustrating.  Watching as swoon-worthy pieces come down the runway, on only slender bodies, and knowing I can't fit into any of them is a bit maddening.   However, this season, I was pleasantly surprised to see so many plus-size models strutting their stuff for J.Crew, Michael Kors, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung and more.

Plus-Size Outfit Inspiration: Cool & Casual

Plus Size Black Leather Jacket Boyfriend Jeans Casual Outfit
While my casual looks often include skinny jeans and a great pair of heels (see previous post here), sometimes it's nice to mix things up a bit and opt for an outfit that's stylish and a bit more comfortable.  Boyfriend jeans offer both, style and comfort, and look particularly amazing when paired with a cool leather jacket and sneakers.

A Pop of Color


No winter wardrobe is complete without a great coat.  While black is often the default, a coat in bold hue or print can elevate even the simplest of looks. Today, I opted for a pop of color to breathe a bit more life into my black and white look.
