Last week I was invited to Urban 1972’s headquarters to preview their new summer collection and play dress-up with some of my favorite blogger babes like Marla from Marlita on the Run and Emily from Emmy J. I was a little nervous about going to the event in fear they may not have anything in my size. When I arrived I was blown away to find that Urban 1972 had just launched their plus size brand IM Curvy.
Guess who was the first blogger to give the line a spin? 🙂 I was in love with the leggings you see the the photos, and like all leggings, they were super comfy. I’m a huge fan of textured tights and leggings and I did not want to take these off! The dress was also my favorite. It was comfortable and perfect for a night out with the girls or maybe even a Birthday. I love the mini turtle neck and I adore the double slits.
The following day, I clicked over to the newly launched Im Curvy site and was elated to see an array of current trends in the online store, ranging from a 1X to 3X. As a curvy girl, sometimes, I feel I’m not able to enjoy trends as much as regular sized woman because things simply don’t come in my size or doesn’t fit my body right. I was stoked to see trends such as cutout dresses, comic tees and crop tops, all in larger sizes.
Don’t be afraid to push the “standard” limits of what’s expected of plus size women, don’t be afraid to push your limits. Do what feels right and what you’re comfortable with and know that style has no size.
I don’t take being in front of a camera very seriously, sometimes.
It’s been a while since I fell this much in live with an LBD. Don’t be surprised if you see this dress again very soon. 😉 Shop the Double Splitted dress here.
