Joe Fresh Plus Size Line Review

Joe Fresh extended line- Fall editionWhen I heard the news that Canadian clothing retailer, Joe Fresh was launching a plus size line or I should say extending their line for its fall collection, I was excited, to say the least. I have squeezed myself in many of their pieces in the past so the news that some of the new merchandises will go up to size 3x was absolute music to my ears.

As a visible fat woman, plus size, whatever you want to call it, it’s always a win when a brand decides to add a plus size line or better yet simply extend their original line. It’s an acknowledgment that women like me love fashion and deserve to look good. And….. nothing like a one stop shop, grocery, and clothes shopping will be completed together.

My Fall Uniform

Soon it’s going to be freezing outside, and I am already thinking about ways to document my outfits. You might remember this summer I transformed my little photoshoot area into my home office. I think this spot is a very good place to start. It’s next to a big window and the perfect place  to snap pictures on sunny days. I find indoor pictures a bit boring,  but your girl has decided not to fight the cold this year. Read More »

Happy Monday loves! I hope you had a beautiful weekend. In case you missed it, I shared with you in my last post some plaid options for plus size women.

In case you need more inspiration, I have a board on Pinterest called How To Wear Plaid/Tartan.

The perfect Office Party Dress ( Plus size edition)

When I was putting this outfit together, I already had an idea as to where I wanted to shoot my pictures. It was so cold outside I could not even stand out for a minute. It’s the holiday season, and by the end of this month, we will all most likely attend at least one party or more. I thought this outfit was appropriate for an office party. I have seen some outrageous office party outfits in my days. Even if the party is out of the office, I believe you still have to keep it professional. Read More »

Puffer Vest

 

How to wear a puffer vest : #plussize, #oldnavy #joefresh
  I hope you had a lovely weekend. The weather was beautiful yesterday, but a bit chilly. I had to add this Old Navy puffer vest to my outfit. Puffer vests are functional, versatile and super warm. They are excellent for layering during around this time of the year. I went for a walk with the boys and below I am also sharing some pictures of kiddo 2. I know I talk about them all the time, but I never shared any photos. My first son is not in the pictures because he was having a tantrum, I hope to share some pictures of him soon.
In case you love my puffer vest, I would recommend sizing down for a better fit. I am wearing size XXL, but I think a xl would have been better. It’s a great buy for Fall.

Checkered Dress

Ciaa from www.mycurvesandcurls.com
The weather has finally cool down this weekend. It was just too damn hot. It’s amazing how we are almost never satisfied.When it’s cold we complain and when it’s hot we complain too. Anyways here I am again with another Show some legs it’s summer look. Today I am wearing this short checkered dress from Joe Fresh. It’s really hard to resist buying from Joe Fresh while these cute print are staring at your face every time you go grocery shopping. I guess for once I can thank god that they do not always have XXL. I find that they are stepping up their game a little when it comes to adding more XL and XXl on many of their products.I honestly believe that they have the potential of becoming an even bigger brand if they start making clothes for women like me. This black & white checkered dress is really simple,very comfortable and it has pockets. How was your weekend ?

STYLE ME FRIDAY: MONOCHROMATIC

Plus size fashion inspiration

Hola loves ! I had another post scheduled for today but decided to post that on Monday because I had to take part of the Style me Friday this week. In case you don’t know what Style me Friday is all about you can check out the Fashionista Next Door for all the details.The challenge this week was  pull off a monochromatic look  but  your easy white on white or all black we had to  use some colors. I am not going to lie I tried a few items in the same color range but they all kind felt flats. At the end I settle for this one because the color worked together. You can  check out the Fashionista Next Door to see what everyone else is wearing. Check out more photos below…… Read More »

{WEEKEND SWAG}

 

If you and I ever meet during the weekend somewhere in GTA, this is most likely how I will be dressed.   I will usually dress lighter in case I am going to the thrift shop because it’s much easier to try things on. I read many blogs and some of the bloggers are so elegant that I can’t help but to ask myself if they look this way everyday. Oh well ! I make sure I am always presentable when I leave my house because you never know who you are going to meet outside ,other than that if you and I are hanging out in my house I will be in a dress or a t-shirt and sweatpants. Do you ever wonder what your favorite bloggers look like outside of blogville ?
