A Vested Interest in Curves


Melissa McCarthy is delighting us again with her fall collection for Penningtons!




What caught my eye as I was perusing the Penningtons site were these oh so fresh to death skinny jeans.  The fit is spot on and they’re super comfortable.  I love the cool zipper details found on the ankles of the jeans as well.


Next came this printed top. I really like the print and look forward to pairing it with other printed pieces in my wardrobe.  Because I’m on the short side of the height spectrum I elected to tuck in the shirt in at the front and left the shirt tail out at the back.


Now we’ve got to talk about this vest.  I absolutely adore it!  It provides the perfect extra layer of warmth on a crisp fall day.  The vest is quite light weight so do fret my pet.



To complete my look I added bold silver earrings and black wedge boots.  Et voila, I’m ready to step out in style!

Melissa McCarthy  has hit us again with a beautiful summer collection available through Penningtons!  The Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line debuted last year to loads of hip hop hoorays.GT Edited IMG_8343

When I laid eyes on this kimono on the Pennington’s website, I was literally salivating.  I just adored the print and colours and that fringe….oooo wwweeee!

This kimono would make for an amazing swimsuit coverup as well being a great layering piece to give a little extra kick to a casual outfit.

Now these flared cuffed jeans are the bomb.com.  What I adore about them is that the fabric is so soft.  They don’t feel heavy at all.  I must confess that I’m not really a denim jeans type of lady but these jeans are the truth.  The jeans have a ton of stretch so I was able to go down a size.GT Edite IMG_8167

Now for those of you who are plus size and short like me, you will need to pay a visit to the tailor to get those hemmed to the right length for you.

To complete my look I haded some dangly earrings and some cool shades – and with that I’m sitting pretty enjoying a beautiful summer day!
