>New Website For Curves

>

Last night I was doing my normal internet search for new designers and cool clothes that cater to all sizes of curves from size 2 and up. As I searched, I came across this website called Carmakoma.com, which is a european plus size clothing line that starts at a size 12.
I have to say that the designs were young, trendy, and chic. Majority of the clothes were modeled with leggings, which can throw you off a little bit if you are trying to imagine what they would look like without the leggings. My only disappointment was that most of the clothing line was black and grey with a few sprinkles of purple and pink items.

CarmaKoma designers are Danish girls Angelica Weiss &  Heidie Lekke who have worked with other brands and designers such as Remix and O by Isabell Kristensen. The interesting thing about the two designers are the fact that they are not curvy women, however, they have managed to produce a trendy and chic clothing line for women with curves.

The brand is exclusively sold at the Carmakoma website.

Sizes are labeled S-L which in plus size language means sizes 12-22. As you are placing your order complete their perfect size form. This helps you find your perfect fit by inputing your body measurements.

They also have a blog and online magazine.
I think the purple wrap dress is very demure and chic. It looks good with the leggings for Fall and I can only imagine how sexy it could be in the summer with some gold sexy 4 inch heels.

Check out a couple of my picks below.  What do you think about the site?

Side Note: Is it me or has anyone noticed that even in the plus size industry you see more caucasion girls than black girls, which is the same problem they are having in the fashion industry now. Have you noticed the same thing? If so, how doyou feel about this?

>Skinny Girl Fashion For Curvy Bodies

>I have to say that I am loving the whole leggings phenom. Are people even wearing pants anymore? Yesterday, I was surfing through Essence.com and I came across this picture of the british sensation Estelle. I think she has a unique and edgy look that works for her body. I love the idea of the metallic silver jacket with leggings. It gives her such a sexy rocker chic look.

Check out the options below to recreate her look. The metallic silver jacket is a great look for fall.

To show off your curves you should go for a fitted style jacket, like a motorcycle jacket and try lame fabric leggings.

From top:Gray motorcycle jacket Jessica London, sizes 14-28,Metallic silver suede jacket, Newport News, sizes 2-18. Lame leggings, Torrid.com, Silver blazer, Newport News

Victoria’s Secret model Jessica White looks great in her short black satin tube dress. Want to recreate her look for your curves? Go for an empire waist with a straight skirt. If you want to hide a large lower half go for an empire pleated waist dress that is fuller in the hips. A red clutch in crocodile or suede will complete the look. Always keep in mind that when a satin fabric is too tight it will show all the lumps and bumps that come with having curves, so, please make sure the dress fits you properly on the largest part of your body.
Pleated waist tube dress, casual plus.com, sizes 1x-3x, Love Tease pocket skirt @macys.com,sizes 3-13, Torrid straight skirt dress, sizes 10-32.
Are you sick of the whole leggings look or are you hoping for it to be around for the next couple of seasons?

>Hold up, stop the presses. I must have been under a rock. I recently found out from another great blog called Beauty Plus Power.blogspot.com that top designers Badgley Mishka has a plus size evening line at Bloomingdales. Yes, the same BadgleyMishka that dresses Halle Berry and countless other celebrities. I know, you don’t have to say it, WTF!

Check out this black sleeveless one shoulder floor gown. Gorgeous! The dresses start at $250 and they come in sizes 14-20. 
I just have two questions, what took them so long and who’s next in line to start designing for the double digits?

What are your thoughts, and if you are a plus size curvy girl what other designers would you like to see cross over. I say Diane Von Furstenburg needs to just jump on the band wagon, she makes one of the most flattering dresses in the world and she stops at a 12. Oh, wait, she did add a 14 to the line.

Let me know your thoughts.

>Sequins

>Another popular trend for Fall is sequin dresses. Curvy celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Beyonce have been seen in this Nicole Miller sequin dress that retails for about $475.

To recreate this look, check out http://www.applebottoms.com/. They have a dress with similar details as the Nicole Miller dress. The Apple Bottoms sequin dress nips in at the waist and is straight on the hips. Many Fashionistas would telly curvy girls to avoid anything that is straight on full hips. I disagree with that, because I think full hips look sexy in straight dresses. Especially when they nip in at the waist. It gives a curvy girl that Jessica Rabbit effect. A dress like this is meant to show off your curves, so, you must take on a diva like attitude to pull this off. 
The great thing about Apple Bottoms is that they have the same clothes in women sizes and plus sizes.
Nicole Miller $475, Apple Bottoms, $44.98, sizes S-L, 1X-3X
If you are self conscious about your arms you may want to go for this sequin dress from Apple Bottoms, $39.98 sizes S-L, 1X-3X
Apple Bottoms, who knew?
