Stylish Saturdays with SexyPlus Clothing “Feeling the Fringe Benefits”

Hi Lovelies,

It is Summer ’16 in my city and the night life is alive and well, I personally have been in hibernation season all Winter and even for most of the Spring. I am super excited to finally get out there and explore some fun Summer nights with my girls.

One of my most favorite aspects of Summer is the shopping, I love adding great staple statement items to my wardrobe, and this  year one trend to look out for is Fridge.

IMG_3008

I am loving everything about this Joseph Ribkoff LBD from SexyPlus Clothing.

IMG_3045

This Dress is called “Revelation” and is it ever!! A great style note about this Dress is that it is perfect for travel due to the Poly Lycra fabric blend it is made from. I HATE to iron, yet still have a need to make a fashion statement and for me this Dress will do just that.

Summers in Canada are short but sweet, I urge my fellow style seekers to step into this fringe trend this Summer, it’s fun and feminine and you just my like it.

Style tip: I am wearing a Size 16 in this Dress, this brand is very true to fit so due to the give of the fabric you may have room to size down or up based on your comfort level.

Canadian Plus Size Fashion Blogger Presents: “Be Enchanted’ with SexyPlus Clothing

Hi Lovelies,

There is always that one Dress will make you feel super beautiful every time you wear it. Maybe it is the colour? or the prints? It could be the fabric it is made of and how it feels on your skin?  You many not know exactly what it is, but each time you put it on, it makes you feel so beautiful.

IMG_2818

That is how I feel about the “Be Enchanted” off the shoulder Dress from SexyPlus Clothing. I love off Shoulder details, which happen to be huge in trend this season. Even though I am shying away from Body-con style dresses this year, the front slit on this Dress makes it a classic that I know I will keep in my closet for a while. My natural style aesthetic usually gravitates toward styles that mimic more of a Pin-up flair, and this Dress will do exactly that.

IMG_2865

IMG_2812

Style Tips and Suggestions: I chose to style this Dress with a simple pair of nude strappy heels, the floral pattern dominates throughout the Dress so you can chose to be mild with your accessories and just let the dress to all the talking…because it will.

Growing up as a Plus Size Teen and now Woman, I have always been inundated  with outside opinions on what I should and should not wear, one of the “Fashion Rules” given to me was to stay away from bold prints, florals and bright colours. Welp as you can see, I clearly have chosen to go against those suggestions. I am a lover of Fashion, Trend and Style, and I refuse to mussel my Passion due to other Peoples opinions of me and my body.

Curvy Babes Take Over Bestival Toronto with Addition Elle

Hi Lovelies,

Summer has officially started in my city Toronto and with that comes Roof Top Patios, Beach / Cottage life and one of my favorite things to do Festivals. The city is flooded every year with so much life and activity it is almost impossible to keep up with it all. I absolutely love Toronto in the Summertime. To kick things off, I had a chance to hit a funky fun musically infused Festival called “Bestival” for the first time thanks to Canadian Retailer Addition Elle.

IMG_20160612_171201

I have hit quite a few festivals in my city, but I have to admit Bestival was one of the best times I have had in a long time. I learned that Bestival was birthed out of 10 years of championing music events and record releases by Rob da Bank of the music label Sunday Best.  Together with his wife Josie da Bank, and partnered by John & Ziggy from Get Involved. Rob apparently is the visionary that puts together an eclectic line up of Musical Artists, while Josie brings her artistic vision to the event, which was very evident throughout.

Colorful displays and bright pastel decorative objects sprinkled throughout the park, I almost felt like I was at a modern day Woodstock. Music filled the airways, people dancing freely in the open, the entire experience just felt like for a split moment in time you could forget whatever was stressing you out in real life and just let go and have fun.

One of the best parts of this experience for me was sharing it with three other curvy stylish babes. (L-R Thera from the Blog Cloud14+, Meredith Shaw Singer, Radio Host, Curvy Model and Stylist and OG Style Maven Assa from the fashion and lifestyle brand Mycurvesandcurles.com.

In order to prepare for the dual days of activities, Addition Elle provided us with a ‘Survival kit” that came in quite handy. A cute Aztec print mini Backpack filled with goodies to help get and keep us in the Bestival mood. Snacks, Sunglasses, and even Flash Tattoos.  So good!
