Red and Black Plus Size Party Dress from Sydney’s Closet

Red and Black Plus Size Party Dress from Sydney’s Closet

Wedding and gala season is just starting to heat up, prompting the ever-present question, “What am I going to wear?!” When it comes to formal occasions, I’m usually a dress gal. I’m always on the hunt for plus size dresses that are versatile and make a statement like this red and black plus size party dress from Sydney’s Closet. Remember the gorgeous rose gold sequin dress a few weeks ago? (See the post here!) That was also from Sydney’s Closet.

Forever 21 Plus Size Black Lace Up Midi Dress Review

Have you ever picked up a dress that is so not your style and fallen in love with it? That happened to me when I tried on this Forever 21 Plus Size Black Lace Up Midi Dress last month. I’m usually obsessed with all things colorful and go for bold silhouettes. But WOW, this plus size knit midi dress (or is it a maxi?) made all of my secret GOTH girl dreams come true.

Celebrate M2 Boutique’s 10 Year Anniversary with Me this Friday

Come see me on Friday, September 23rd as I help celebrate M2 Boutique‘s 10th Anniversary with Julie Hightower of the fun Chicago-based fashion and beauty video series, A Better Day With Julie!

For those of you who don’t live in Chicago, M2 Boutique is one of my favorite little boutiques to find amazing pieces of jewelry for great prices! I always find so many things I want that when I go to check out, choosing which pieces to stay and which ones will go home with me is like choosing to which hand to cut off! I’ve been a long time supporter of theirs and was thrilled when Julie asked me to help host the 10 year anniversary party!

  • Showing this @modamixfashion kimono top some love. Bought it last year at the #fffweek @lordandtaylor event and have worn it countless times since then. Love the botanical print and the heavier weight of the fabric. Perfect for indecisive spring weather in Chicago! #modamix #stylepluscurves #plussizeblogger #ootd
