Can't believe how fast the TCF Style Expo came and went!! I am definitely going to do a roundup of the vendors I visited, goodies I bought, and share the runway action, but I received so many inquiries on what I wore, that I wanted to share this asap!
DAY 1 OF THE EXPO
I have been creating my own suiting of sorts, and this bomber/pant situation from Lane Bryant was the perfect look for Day 1. I fell immediately for these wide leg pants. I love the Allie fit, they just work for my body type. The wide waistband stays in place and accentuates my waist, and the length is perfect for my 5'5" frame. In the Allie I wear a size 18 which gives me enough room in the thighs without having a gaping waistband. For a fun twist, the matching jacket wasn't a blazer but a bomber. I am wearing a 18/20.
Has anyone checked out Target's New Brand Wild Fable? If not, you should. It's an ode to all things 90's and I feel that there are pieces out there that a myriad of people would like. What's also great is that the brand carries plus and most of the plus is in stores! A couple week's back I tried on some pieces on my Instastories (are you following me on IG, if not, you need to). One of the items I picked up was this cute striped crop top. I am wearing a 2X, and its a great fit. Comfy, and stretchy! When it comes to florals, I always like to mix in some stripes or polka dots to keep it fun. It's also a very chic and easy way to mix prints.
To finish out my look I went with my Steve Madden Debbie block heel shoes and my Fossil Finley bag. When walking around an expo, I went with a pair of shoes that I can wear for several hours without wanting to throw them out and run away in the other direction. Any shoe that I can wear for more than 5 hours is a keeper in my opinion. I wanted an easy going bag that can hold all my essentials without being bulky, and my Fossil Finley bag was perfect for the weekend. Cute, and comfy is the goal while checking out panels and talking it up to the vendors. For the party to celebrate Marie's 10 Year Anniversary, I rocked a cute pink maxi dress from Eloquii (which is on sale, so check it out before it's all gone).
DAY 2 OF THE EXPO
For the last day of the expo, I went with another suit, this time from Premme. I've had this suit in my closet since it launched earlier this summer, but I was waiting for the perfect time to wear it. The expo was it. This is sold out, but they should be dropping some new items completely worthy of being in your closet. With the suit being a pink plaid- a'la Cher from Clueless, I thought it would be cool to wear a mesh tee from Simply Be and matching bra from Elomi.
Elomi is one of my go to brands for bras. They make beautiful bras that accommodate a large bust. I am a 38K in their bra's so finding something that provides comfort, support, and looks great will keep me as a repeat customer. The Anushka is a pretty pink and black lace bra. This style comes in a plunge style, but plunge bra's are not my speed so I am wearing the version that is more of a full coverage.
I ended my look with some sneakers to give it a cool girl vibe. These are the Nike Blazer and I must say that they are the lightest, comfortable sneaker I own. Since I was running back and forth between panels and talking to vendors, these sneakers definitely came in handy.
Now that my #ootd's are out of the way, stay tuned to my recap of the expo, and 3 reasons why you need to attend! Later lovers!!
