I am a big fan of leather. Option in plus were limited to just a jacket here and there, but the times have definitely changed. Besides great jackets, there are pants, tops, and skirts in real or faux leather that can make you look like a total sexy badass.
For the second day of Curvy Con, I wanted to wear something sexy, but still be comfortable. Conventions call for tons of walking and talking, so I wanted to wear something that was easy to move in and can be a conversation starter. Cue this faux leather top from Eloquii. One shoulder tops have been HUGE this year, and as we shift gears into Fall, it completely make sense to start seeing them in other materials such as leather and suede. I am wearing a size 18, and the fit was spot on. The back panel is made of ponte, so you won't have to worry about overheating while slaying.
When comfort comes to mind, I think about my pj's. There is no greater feeling than slipping on my favorite pj's after a long day. Now that pj's have been taken out of the bedroom and and now are a part of streetstyle you can enjoy the comfort of pj's while making the street's your runway. When I saw these pants in my daily email's from Lane Bryant, I just had to make them mine. The September capsule collaboration with Glamour's Magazine Lauren Chan is an ode to to the pijama trend. Tons of sliky based goodness in rich tones of burgandy and black. These wide leg pants were the standout in the collection in my opinion. Wide leg pants can be quite tricky when you are a member of team thick thighs, but my solution- I just size up. I want the pants to truly look flowy and oversized, so a size 18 accomplished my goal. The pants come with a tie belt so you can define your waist. Trust me when I say, the amount of compliments I received made this blogger smile from ear to ear (Especially from the beautiful Nia Jaxx from WWE).
As a native NY, wearing the right shoe makes the difference between enjoying the day out, or rushing to next available seat in order to relieve tired feet. These days, I limit my time in heels, but even though I may not be sky high, I'm not sacrificing style for comfort. Zara has been a great resource for the cutest accessories and shoes, and in some cases clothes (I need them to expand more of their assortment to XXL), but their shoes are still a favorite. Check these out because for $40 they are going to go quick.
I spent Day 2 of Curvy Con listening in to great panels such as Dear Retailer, and listening to Lane Bryan't new designer talk about taking classic staples and amping them up for us plus size women. I also got a chance to check out some new lingerie from UK brand Curvy Kate. They had such sexy bras that go up to a K cup. Trust me when you are busty, trying to find a great bra that is still supportive is important. I checked out new fall arrivals from Macy's, Simply Be, Modcloth, and newcomer Premme. I'm pumped for Fall, and so ready for what's in store. What do you think of my Day 2 look?
