Holiday Lookbook: Part 2: MORE SEQUINS PLEASE

Hello everyone!!!

For this post I have teamed up with the fabulous Pepper of Pretty Plus PepJeniese of The Jenesaisquoi, and Georgette of Grown and Curvy Woman to bring you all some New Year's Eve sequin inspiration!  

Let's just be honest, what's a holiday lookbook without SPARKLE?! These outfits were exciting for me because I wanted to give you all a dressy version and casual look. This blazer was a must have for me, but after I bought it I thought "how am I going to rock this twice?" Sometimes we get so caught up in clothing that we simply fail to relay items to our actual lives. Not my sequin blazer!!! 

These outfits were just what I needed! I decided to pair my sequin blazer with a faux leather skirt for a holiday office look and pair it again with my new favorite boyfriend jeans for a casual Saturday date night look.

Holiday Lookbook featuring SWAK Designs: Part 1

Hello everyone!!!

I am excited to bring you all a holiday lookbook featuring two looks from SWAK Designs and one look on the way!

I was excited that SWAK Designs reached out to me to style a couple of new arrivals! SWAK Designs "offers contemporary plus size fashion for women in sizes 14 - 36. From maxi dresses and leggings, to cardigans and camisoles," SWAK Designs believes that there clothing is "the perfect blend of trend and classic design." Then I immediately remembered how fun it was to create holiday inspired looks last year and decided to create a lookbook this year.

I could not wait to get my hands on the Joyce Dress because of the bold navy and white stripes. This dress could easily be dressed up or down and I decided to style it for a casual family gathering look. This dress has bold stripes and I knew that a plaid shirt would go perfect with it as well as some low heel laceup booties. I think it turned out well!

Review: The fabric is lightweight and the length is fine, but a little short in the back thankfully I am wearing tights. I am wearing a size 1x.

Style Note: When shopping with SWAK Designs be sure to shop by your waist measurement. There clothes are very generous in the hips.

Next up is this amazing Eternity Convertible Multi Print Maxi Dress. I quickly grew fond of the effortless possibilities that one item could create after I first featured an Eternity dress during my "Maxi Love" series from August. This dress is a head turner and the fact that it is in this seasonable brown print is perfect. This look was created for a Friend's Social Event. I wanted to focus on the dress and added a wine colored cardigan and booties to complete the look. I would like to add that I learned how to tie this dress with a video, yes a video, it was extremely helpful especially since my boyfriend assisted in the tying. 

Review: This fabric is heavy. Heavy like I had to use a wooden hanger to hold it. I really love the versatility of this dress as I did the first time I tried an eternity style dress from SWAK Designs. The color is vibrant and perfect for the fall and winter. 

Style Note: I am wearing a size 1x-3x as this dress comes in only two sizes 1x-3x and 4x-6x. Also, I am wearing a convertible bra with this dress, link below.
