Poolside Chillin’: My Favorite Plus-Size Swimsuits

Can you believe it’s already July? Insane, right? That means that unless you live in an awfully warm area, your days by the pool are numbered. Still, I thought I’d share a roundup of my favorite swimsuits for women with curves.

While there are quite a few online shopping destinations dedicated to plus-sized women, the amount of sites that offer swimwear are few and far between. I probably won’t be sporting any swimwear this summer—that’s a self-love/body positivity conversation for another day—but I hope that I can help make the search a little bit easier for some. (Comment below and let me know where you shop for curvy swimsuits, or which piece is your favorite!)

My Favorites: #NYFW (Cont.)

Alright. I’m going to try and squeeze my remaining favorites from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week into this post. Keep in mind that there were literally thousands of looks circling the catwalks, and I certainly didn’t have time to view and write about all of them. So, I’m sure there were some great ones that I missed. (If you saw some, please let me know in the comments! I’d love to take a look!) Enjoy!

I’m a long time Phillip Lim fan, and his name has been especially abuzz lately, because of his upcoming Target campaign (which I am extremely excited about). His collection for Spring/Summer 2014 looks completely different from the pieces heading to stores on Saturday, though. It’s mineral-inspired, sweet and strong. The iridescent hues are exciting and vibrant, but still cool. And each look would transition from the office to the club seamlessly. (more…)

My Favorites: #NYFW (Continued)

There is so much going on with Fashion Week, that it’s almost hard for me to keep up with all of the shows! Still, I press on. Here’s the latest installment in my collection of favorite looks.
