I’m completely obsessed with Emerald Green this season. Everywhere we look in nature, we see shades of this beautiful hue, so it’s only right that Emerald Green is having a major moment in fashion right now. Since I’m so obsessed, I wanted show you green in all its glory in this special holiday lookbook featuring emerald green plus size pieces from Macy’s.

How cute is this Plus Size Sweater with the cutest Scottie Dog Print?! It’s Charter Club from Macy’s and it comes in both petite sizes and plus sizes! It’s oh-so-cozy and because it’s tunic length, it hits at about mid-thigh and works perfectly over leggings. I’ve been trying to up my lounge wear game lately, and this Charter Club Plus Size Scottie Dog Sweater from Macy’s is perfect for those days when you’re relaxing at home — or blogging from bed!
Each year, Macy’s hosts a Flower Show at several of their flagship stores around the country. Gorgeous flowers, arranged in thematic settings…so beautiful, so fresh! It’s a gorgeous celebration of spring, and I love seeing what they come up with every year! This year’s theme was America the Beautiful, and every garden was set up to capture the spirit and natural beauty of each region of the country…the southeast, east, southwest, west, midwest and pacific northwest. I was so inspired by the Flower Show that I just had to do a photo shoot — even though the lighting was set up to highlight the flowers and (gasp!) not fashion bloggers attempting to steal the spotlight.
The three looks that I chose worked well with the gardens from the southeast, southwest and Rockies region.
First, the southeast, which is an environment I’m very familiar with, since I’m from Alabama! I chose a mint color, two tone sleeveless sheath dress from Calvin Klein to evoke the charm and refinement that characterizes southern fashion.
Next, I completely fell in love with this off-the-shoulder ruffled royal blue dress. I had a vision that it would perfectly match the southwest landscape and couldn’t help but add a flower headress!
And for my third dress, I went with a more sleek silhouette with a mod, colorblocked design that evoked the scenery of the Rockies to me.
If there’s a Macy’s in your home town that has a Flower Show, be sure to go and check it out! It’s a beautiful celebration of spring!
Rachel Roy just debuted a Curvy Plus Size Collection! Rachel Roy is a high end clothing designer known for her classic, feminine silhouettes and bold use of color and patterns. She launched her label in 2004 and later expanded into ready to wear…and now, FINALLY!, she has debuted the RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy Collection, available at Macy’s and on her website. And guess who could NOT resist trying it out?? Especially when I ran across this Rachel Rachel Roy Curvy Plus Size Sleeveless Sheath Dress with oversized pockets on my last Macy’s shopping trip!

According to this Refinery 29 interview with the designer, she describes her target woman like this: “The Rachel Rachel Roy woman is curious and adventurous; she has a career, so she has the need to look professional, pulled-together, and polished. She’s the younger sister to Rachel Roy, so the price point is lower and more affordable. But who the customer is really the same throughout, despite the category.”
That’s seriously exactly how I feel about this dress. It’s such a simple shape, but I feel so polished! I can totally wear this to the office this spring/summer but can also wear it on a number of other occasions. It’s a sturdy knit and has a super flattering A-line shape. The v neck and pleat down the center make the dress feel like an origami masterpiece…and when you add the oversized pockets…you have a polished, chic sheath dress…for plus size ladies!
I love the classic Chanel Coat and periodically go hunting for something that will give me that posh, sophisticated look, without the price tag (not to mention that Chanel doesn’t make plus sizes!). After binge-watching Scream Queens on Netflix a few months ago, I went crazy trying to find something that gave me that same over-the-top Chanel look and feel. And low and behold…I found this amazing plus size Tahari ASL Faux Pearl Trim Boucle Tweed Jacket at Macy’s! (Sadly, it’s already sold out.) At first glance, this jacket might seem a little old-lady-ish, but when you add a short body-con tunic dress, piles of pearls, and some thigh-high boots, the look gets a little younger, edgier and Scream Queen-worthy!
