plus size culottes
I didn't know about this whole culottes thing.   I remember seeing myself in photos wearing them back in the day and it was not pretty. LOL.  I will say that this updated trend has changed my mind about swearing off culottes.  The faux leather definitely gives them a cool factor.

Style Notes:  These culottes from Eloquii were purchased in a size 24.  I thought they would be too small, but they worked.  The faux leather has give as well and loosened up as I wore them.

Boots Dont Lie

It's not anyone's fall in the Bay right now, but I wanted to take the time and review these boots for the ladies who had questions before the darn things sell out. I purchased these knee high sway boots from Eloquii and was concerned about them fitting over my thigh.  I was pleasantly surprised of how good the boots fit and how relatively comfortable they are for a boot with 4"inch heels.  I'm also very impressed of the style of the boot and how chic they are.

Style Notes:You'll want to note that in the back of the boots there was a small elastic panel at the top of boots behind the knee.  I cut out the elastic to give myself more thigh room.  Don't worry about anyone being able to see your alteration, the way the elastic is built into the boot that change is easily hidden.  I purchased a size 11 in the boots, the boots are wide but still fit me a little snug.  Just note that these boots are not super wide. If you are not comfortable with a 4'inch heel you can always take your boots to a shoe repair shop and have them reduce the size of the heel for you.

Labored White

I'm don't go by a lot of fashion rules these days, so when I saw this white dress I didn't hesitate. It's so comfortable, simplistic and minimal that I knew it belonged with me.   (Sidetone: This would work great for any of maternity ladies out there - There's plenty of room and it's super comfy).  These days I'm into less being more.  I love how keeping it simple gives off that effortless chic look.  

Style Notes:  I added a skinny belt with this dress to give it a little shape.  I would wear with or without the belt, but without it gives you more of that Kanye minimal relaxed look. This dress is in a size 22.  The fabric is a little sheer, so you will need to wear a foundation underneath.  Keep in mind that the slits on the sides do go high if you decide to belt. It wasn't anything that I thought was too revealing, but you'll want to be mindful of that.  My shoes are from Shoes of Prey, they are a website that allows you design your own shoe and carry large and wide widths.

If I was fat Nicole Richie...

Whenever I think of someone who gets 70s trends right in a modern way, I think of Nicole Richie. I adore her personal style, the way she reinvented herself, polished her look is something to be admired. She is one of my personal style icons.  I decided to do these jeans a few different ways.  It's been a while since I've done wide leg jeans, but these 70s inspired ones are a perfect addition to my wardrobe.  

Style Notes:  I got these jeans in a 28.  Just because I was scared how they were going to fit. I would rather too big than too small. I could have sized down 1 or 2 sizes.  I did have them tailored a bit for fit, because of that. They have a lot of stretch and just in general have a relaxed fit.  The boho top is in a 3X.  It's a peplum top that has a cute button up back. It looks great tucked in or left out.
