Torrid $500 Giveaway

The Garnerstyle Facebook Page reached 200K in facebook likes and I wanted to do a giveaway just to thank you guys for your awesome support.  The great folks at Torrid sponsored (5) $100 gift cards to give away to five lucky readers.  I figured I'd give you a little inspiration on what to do with that gift card, as well.  Really get a bang for your buck with wearing one jumpsuit three ways. Please enter in the Rafflecopter widget below and remember to check back to see if you are a winner. It's amazing how many people I have to hunt down to claim their prize. LOL. I always email the winner, but sometimes it's hard to track y'all down.  There are multiple ways to enter, so hopefully no one gets excluded.  International people can enter too.  Rules and regulations are the the widget. 

Style Notes: I got the jumpsuit in a 3X.  I'm a 16/18 on top and a 26 on bottom. With that being said, when I purchase a jumpsuit with stretch I usually pick the size that is in the middle of my top and bottom size. For me, this would be a 3X.  This was purchased in store. There were a lot of sizes in this available for those looking.

Simply Irresistible

6th and Lane, Plus Size Black Pencil Skirt
Today I was channeling the Robert Palmer girls with my all black, heavy eyebrows, and combed back hair. I know I have been embracing the all black trend lately.  I think as a plus size women, I fought against black for so long, because it seemed to always be pushed upon plus size women so they can look "slim." It was to the point where I didn't have simple black staple pieces.  I think I've proven that I can wear color as a plus size woman, so now I'm finally embracing black. Hopefully, y'all don't get too tired of seeing me in it. 

Style Notes:  This pencil skirt is a ponte knit with a nice amount of stretch. In my opinion, this is makes for an awesome work staple that you could easily wear at night.  I got a size 24 in the skirt.  It fit nicely. I will have to get the waist taken in. You may can avoid having to go to the tailor for large waist/hip ratios by ordering down a size.

My Wide Calf Boot Picks


I waited a little bit to make my wide calf boot selections.  I wanted to give the brands a chance to populate their stock before I made my selections.  You'll want to note that the Duo Boots, although the priciest of the bunch will allow you to pick the width of your boots.  I was personally impressed with their selection and I may just go ahead and splurge on a pair.  Some of you have asked about thigh high boots.  Per my knowledge, I haven't seen any offered in plus.  Years ago, Torrid had a pair.  Maybe they will offer them again.  

I did a video below that shows you how to measure your calves a couple little tidbits on finding a great fitting boot.  I also wanted to shout out Boot Bands. They allow you to turn regular boots into wide calf boots or make your wide calf boots wider.  Find them here
