Lookbook Love: Torrid’s Holiday Collections

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to Torrid’s headquarters in Los Angeles to preview their holiday collection. I wasn’t sure how they were going to show off the news items, but when I walked in and saw the glitter background and runway, I instantly became excited. There were more than 30 looks, each I can seeing fitting into every girl’s closet. Below are some of my favorite looks, I love all the leather accents and the lace details. The jewel tones were also fun to watch coming down the runway. Who says fall has to be drab and filled with no color?

Another trend I saw on the runway was combining different styles, for example, adding some sparkle to a grunge inspired outfit or adding some preppy accents to a rock and roll outfit. The coolest part of the fashion show? The models showing off the clothes were Torrid store employees! Real girls, modeling clothes for us curvy ladies, it was amazing.

Most if not all these items are in stores and online now! From updating your fall wardrobe, to holiday parties, to a date night, to just getting your knit sweater fix, there is something for every girl in Torrid’s holiday collection. If you’re torn and are deciding on that ONE item, my pick is the vinyl jacket, the peplum jacket, or that gorgeous red sweater.

Which would you choose? Which looks are your favorite? To see the rest of the photos, head here.

Mad for Plaid

“I like your Gwen Stefani pants” is probably one of the most flattering comments I’ve received wearing these plaid pants. I couldn’t have asked to be compared to a cooler fashion icon. All that aside, I’ve had these pants for about a week and I’ve worn them twice, needless to say, they’re going to be one of my fall favorites. Even more surprisingly, they’re from Forever 21 Plus.  I’m surprised because while I appreciate the effort Forever 21 puts into their plus size line,  sometimes they miss the mark. Also, they need a lot of  work on their fit of the plus size line. I had to go two sizes up to get the look I wanted to achieve with the pants, either way, they were a good find and they’re perfect for fall.

Pairing them with a fun graphic tee and a pair of sleek black pumps, balanced the look perfectly. I love these pumps from  Barefoot Tess, believe it or not, I did not have a pair of black pumps in my shoe collection and these are perfect and classic. I like the pointed toe, and I love the heel height, it’s about 2 inches, which is perfect for me. Just the right amount of heel height without sacrificing comfort. I’m all about shoes that kick my looks up a notch without killing my feet.

PS: So, I went darker a couple weeks ago and added some purple to my hair and I LOVE it!! I think it’s quite obvious I’m ready for fall. 😉

’90s Plus Size Fashion

It’s nothing new that ’90s fashion is back and in a huge way. From edgy grunge style to the flower power prints, the ’90s we’re a fun time. I’m a total ’90s kid and I’m having a lot of fun with the trend. I’m embracing my inner grunge with having fun with florals, I’m not sure if I’m ready for the overalls trend, but I love a good plaid shirt and beanie.

Happy Shopping! xx
