I really had a blast while I was away over the weekend. I shopped, ate good food, took in some sights, but most excitingly of all – I attended Big Deal Toronto (an amazing event, which I talked about about in my last post).
For this special occasion, I decided to take my new, luxurious, cream coloured shawl collar coat from Forever 21+ out on the town!
I paired it with the coolest ever, Lot18 denim overalls from Addition Elle, ivory high neck crop top from Girl With Curves, and cute, pale rose flats from Aldo for a casual, chic look that was perfect for a day of shopping and chatting with some of the most stylish plus size fashionistas I know!!!
I’ve got to mention though – this particular crop top look was quite the risk for me! I wore crop tops all summer long and fell in love, but I had never styled one quite like this – exposing so much of my “vulnerability” (AKA fat rolls… Haha!).
A few years ago I probably would have gasped in horror at the idea of going out in public like this; and I admit, I wasn’t 100% comfortable at first; but as I stood outside and posed for pics I felt confident and beautiful as I bared my love handles in all their fleshy glory!
Crimped hair and few pretty accessories, like midi rings, and these fabulous, front/back faux pearl earrings from Forever 21 topped off this very playful look to perfection.
It’s officially thanksgiving weekend and I’ve been trying to get this post out all week, I swear!!!
First, the day I was supposed to do my shoot, my bestie gave birth to a beautiful baby boy (Yay!!!) annnd then I dropped my phone in the bathtub while attempting to shave my legs and binge watch Vampire Diaries at the same time (Damn you, Damon!!!). So, just add those to my list of excuses for why I don’t get posts out on time… *sigh*
Aaaaanyway, I’m super excited to finally show off this fabulous, pixelated plaid, bodycon from Toronto based, Voluptuous Clothing!!! I first saw it, worn to perfection by the stunning Fluvia Lacerda, and featured on the cover of the Fall Fashion issue of DARE Mag and fell in love! It’s the absolute perfect autumn dress, with a classic, curve hugging silhouette and this fall’s hot plaid trend, which I just can’t get enough of!
I’ve paired it with these incredibly cool, wide calf, thigh high boots from SexyPlus Clothing (Yasss!!!), another Canadian owned business (Whoop whoop!!!) and this stunning leather and bronze, handcrafted, African statement necklace, by Montreal Jewelry Designer, Djénéba Daou, for a chic fall look that works for anything from work, to turkey dinner with the fam!!!
