Here's a recap of my Instagram OOTD's from last month! See photos for outfit details.
The retailer Charlotte Russe has recently launched Charlotte Russe+ their plus size clothing line. The line was dropped March 9th and is available on their website and select stores around the country. The line is very youthful, fun and will offer tops, bottoms, dresses, rompers and denim in sizes 16-24/1X-3X. Do refer to their size chart if you aren't sure of your size. It's great to see a brand that offers the same thing in plus that they do in the straight section. When CR approached me to try out their new line I was a bit skeptical because I knew it was junior plus, but upon perusing the clothing, I was able to find a few pieces that I thought were appropriate for me.

There are so many beautiful prints that I've seen coming out for the Spring season but one that I'm seeing every where lately is polka dot. I've always loved that print, it just reminds me of my childhood and how my mom would dress me up in polka dot dresses. Now that polka dot has been taken to the next level and I'm definitely digging it. So when the kind folks at IGIGI asked me to review something from their Modern Romance collection, I immediately gravitated to the Loretta Skirt in Downtown Dot. This skirt is perfection, I just love the dainty and frilly feel of it along with the beautiful pleating. Oh did I mention it has pockets?!? SCORE!
As most of you know, I am totally obsessed with anything leopard print but I've seem to have moved on to another print obsession and that's anything grid/window pane print. I just love it, especially in black and white. The obsession first started when my favorite plus size brand Eloquii came out with their Kady Pants in that print (see here), I immediately snatched those up and it's been a love affair since. But when Eloquii decided to make the matching Neoprene Blazer, I nearly lost my mind! Now I am not a suit kinda girl, don't have a need to wear them for work but I knew I had to have this one.

So March is in full swing and Old Man Winter seems to want to stick around, despite what the Groundhog has to say lol. But Fashion must go on and I want to at least start dressing the part of Spring even though it feels like Winter. What better way to do that than to wear white? Yes, I know the thought of wearing white can be scary for a lot of people but it's all how you put it together. Now don't get me wrong, white scares the heck outta me, not only because it "supposedly" makes you look
bigger but I am known for dropping some kind of anything on myself. So I tend to stay away from that color if possible, but when I saw this midi skirt from ASOS, I felt compelled to get it. I got it from their straight sizes in a 14, it's scuba material and has a lot of stretch. It fit great and I loved how flowy it was. I am definitely going to be rocking this skirt throughout the spring/summer. I didn't want to take away from the skirt so I wore my fav chambray shirt to keep the look light and spingy.
Valentine's day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than winning something to wear for that special day!

It's hard to believe that this Christmas was in the 50's, totally felt like the beginning of Fall not full on Winter. Friday was such a beautiful sunny day I took the opportunity to meet up with my boo Georgette, who was in town spending the holidays with her fam, and had lunch. Now you can never be too safe when it comes to NYC weather so it's always good to dress in layers so you can add or remove according to the temps.
