Growing up outside of my mom, Miss Piggy was one of my fat role models growing up. What was not to like, she had impeccable style, could kick ass, and was always confident. She made me laugh at the expense of someone getting tossed across the room btw but I digress. So when Jeneise told me thst there was a Miss Piggy sweatshirt at Zara, I had to cop it.
I love a good sweatshirt. It’s definitely a staple in my closet for those transitional seasons of Fall & Spring. With athleisure being incorporated in everyday life, I love how you can mix serious pieces like a suit with sneakers, or wear a leather skirt with a sweatshirt like I did. This sweatshirt is oversized, and I was able to wear the biggest size (size L), and it fit. The great thing about the oversized trend, is that a lot of pieces from straight sized stores can work on a plus size body. When it comes to Zara’s oversized items I have been able to wear them with no issues. This item is sold out online, but check out your local store, you may be able to find one. I will say this, if you are curious about an item, give it a try. If it works out great, if not return that sucker and get something else that does.
I love me a good leather item. Real or faux, I am here for it. This is an oldie, but goodie from Eloquii. It’s a great wrap mini skirt that I can wear with everything. Leather skirts can be fun, flirty, sexy, and versatile. I have worn my leather skirts with boots, sneakers, flats, heels- you name it, I have done it. If you are looking for a good mini, check this one out in vinyl. Like more of a classic, then this pencil skirt is great piece to have.
I’m so happy that it is boot season. The boot selection this season from Eloquii is everything. I have bought five pairs of boots from them. The first pair I had to have were these sequin booties. My love of sequins started when I was a kid in dance class. The yearly recitals with the costumes- glitter, sequins, bold color…ah just made me happy. So when I saw these pink sequin boots, I was giddy- yup giddy. The sequins flip over to silver so you can make cool designs with them. The heel is low so they are definitely shoes for walking around NYC. Sidebar: Anyone else kinda not in love with high heels? I have been opting for more block heels, lower heels or just flats.
These days there are no wrong ways to wear items. I feel that if there is an item you want to wear, put it on. If you love it wear it, if not take it off. I doubt Miss Piggy let people tell her what she couldn’t wear. She was like I do what I want and so can you.
