Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

I have a love affair with books, but I’ve been neglecting them lately in favor of podcasts and magazines and TV, of course. But as soon as I stepped foot in the new Eloquii store at The Shops at Northbridge (the Nordstrom Building in downtown Chicag0), and put this look together, I knew I had to get back in the library as quick as possible! I mean, this Conversational Blouse in Mushroom Print and pink Flounce Pencil Skirt gave me all of the librarian style and book lover vibes that I’ve been missing since so many of the bookstores closed years ago!

Plus Size Summer Style Trends: Bright and Breezy

Plus Size Summer Style Trends: Bright and Breezy

Summer is sizzlin’ hot already, and the style forecasts all point to bold brights as the look of the look of the season! Bright, saturated colors took over the SS17 runways and have made their way into every store. Me? I’m obsessed with anything orange, yellow or red! The super bright trends showed up in collections at Balenciaga, Max Mara and 3.1 Philip Lim, just to name a few. And guess where else these bright colors are showing up? At your local JCPenney! I recently partnered with JCPenney to showcase my plus size summer style – and yes, you guessed it – both of my looks feature bright, bold colors!

Plus Size Holiday Style: Party Plaid

Plus Size Holiday Style: Party Plaid

I’ve been completely obsessed with plaid and am wearing it everywhere this season — even to fancy parties! There is something so cheerful and bold and comforting about plaid. I usually pair my plaid tops with jeans or pop them under a sweater, but I feel like this plaid deserved a night out. So, I paired this red and black plaid top (from Torrid last year) with this fab sparkly Eliza J Textured Full Skirt that I found at Nordstrom*. Add some sequin booties and some statement jewelry, and this plaid is ready to party!

Plus Size Style OOTD: Stripes and Ruffles from Eloquii

Eloquii is absolutely KILLIN’ IT in the plus size market! Every month it seems like they are coming out with a dress or a jumpsuit that I absolutely must have! I am so so so so happy that we have such a high-quality, on-trend option that consistently puts out amazing, innovative and stylish clothes for plus size women. This is just one of the adorable dresses that came out this summer: The Studio Striped Ruffle Dress. Psssssst-It’s on sale right now!

Voodoo Vixen Plus Size Retro Sailor Print Dress

Sometimes, nothing else will do but an adorable retro dress in a fabulous sailor print. This plus size sailor print dress from Voodoo Vixen* is everything my vintage-loving heart could desire! From the bright gorgeous red to the white scalloped sweetheart neckline and trims — I’m swooning! The nautical print is a mix of anchors and steering wheels which has me wanting to set sail — even though I get horrible motion sickness! If you haven’t heard of Voodoo Vixen, and you’re a vintage/retro-loving gal…get yourself to their website! They have a great selection of plus size and straight size styles in 30s, 40s, and 50s shapes and styles. You’ll be in heaven!

What I love about this adorable plus size retro dress: I’ve already talked about the charming nautical print. The full 50s silhouette is so great for women of all sizes — the nipped in belted waist with the sweetheart neckline is so flattering! And the cap sleeves are big enough for my arms, without being too big or gaping. I’m wearing a size 3X, since their dresses run a little snug — especially if you have a large bust. I’m in between a 2X/3X, so I opted to have a little more room. Bring on the boat parties! In a dress this cute, I am tempted to forget that I get motion sick and will sail away into the sunset!
