I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a sucker for a hot print. I know you all know this; It’s not news right? But did you also know that I have an obsession with the United Kingdom? You may be asking yourself what does that have to do with a hot print? Nothing really, but it has a lot to do with many pieces in my wardrobe.
I love British retailers!! They provide amazing clothing pieces for the masses and you will often find that their sizing is much more generous, whether it be for clothing or shoes. And ASOS is one of my all time favorite! Gail introduced me to them years ago, and I’ve been a faithful customer ever since! Offering clothing in straight sizes as well as plus sizes and offering tall and petite options as well! They get that women come in all shapes and sizes.
This dress is one of my faves! The print is fantastic and I just love the midi length. It’s perfect for many occasions and travels very well (don’t you just hate ironing all the time when your on vacation or traveling for work:-)
To style my dress, I rocked it with this cool oversized moto jacket to counteract the femininity, as well as this black studded belt to help define my waist.
My finishing touches were these yellow pumps for a pop of color and I added simple jewelry and I was good to go!!!
For my sexy curvy ladies: Dress
You’ve heard us say it before but it bears repeating….we love companies that offer fashion forward designs for ALL body types! ASOS, a dynamic online retailer, began carrying clothing for plus size fashionistas back in 201o and I was beyond excited! Over the years, I’ve happily thrown money at this company in exchange for fun fashionable designs.
This dress had me shining bright like a diamond. I love the rose gold colour of the sequins.
This spaghetti strap style dress hugs me in all the right places. I imagine donning it for a rip roaring night on the town!
I paired it with a delicate necklace and simple gold bangles. Last but not least were these leopard print slingbacks that I slipped on to complete the look.
For my tall glamazons here is a dress option for you: Dress
Whether you need to attend an elegant soiree, be a fly boss in the boardroom or just stand out at the next festival, ASOS got you!
ASOS really does it like no other. Fashionable. Affordable. Classic. Trendy. Tall. Plus size. Curvy. Petite. We don’t all come in the same shapes and size and we all want hot clothing. The good folks at ASOS clearly understand this. I dream of the day when they provide a brick and mortar option, but until then, I will continue to endulge on the world wide web.
Many years ago, in my rookie online shopping days, I made the crucial mistake of ordering a garment thinking that the UK and US sizes were the same… Well they’re not! LOL. Don’t be a rookie Nancy, and consult the size chart! I have since ordered a number of pieces from them (including shoes big footed babes!!) and the fit is heavenly for this tall girl (remember this tall dress where my “4-inches-heels-wearing-5-foot-11-inches” self couldn’t even see my toes???).
Playing around with trends is always a lot of fun. Personally, I like to incorporate trends in my wardrobe but always aim for two points: 1. will it fit with my current wardrobe and 2. if it’s just a fun piece that I have to have, I don’t want to break the bank. This top here fits the bill perfectly. It has just a hints of ruffle at the sleeves and the stripes are just classic.
I paired my top with this a simple faux leather skirt which has just the right strech to accentuate you “assets” and allow you to walk pefectly (if you’ve ever put on a too tight pencil skirt, you will understand this LOL). I finished my look with my new favorite floral pumps because, in my world, stripes and florals just yearn to be together!
Ask anybody who knows me and they will tell you that ASOS is my favorite online store. Why? Well, they understand me plain and simple. As a curvy woman, shopping at any regular store in the mall is difficult. I rarely find things that fit my body perfectly or they don’t have a wide selection of the stylish clothes that I love.
ASOS is my one stop shop and by that I mean they have a wide selection of clothing. Dresses, pants, shirts, jumpers you name it, they have it. Two important elements with ASOS is that they understand that curvy and plus size women love stylish clothes and their designs are fashionable, current and affordable.
Another crucial element when ordering with ASOS, measure yourself and follow the size chart cause their sizes are in UK measurements, which are different than US size charts. Once you know your measurement you’ll be fine when ordering.
For this post I decided to wear one of ASOS’ classics which is the wiggle dress. ASOS offers a variety of wiggle dresses, this is a simple classic dress that has a Jackie Kennedy feeling. This dress can be worn to work, for a wedding or any classy event, in other words this dress is a must in your wardrobe.
What I love the most about this midi length dress, is the fact that the material is stretchy, it’s comfortable and fits me in the right place.
My look wouldn’t be complete without my mustard pumps and my bedazzled necklace which compliments my dress perfectly.
I’m ready to slay in my ASOS dress!
