DOING IT MILITARY STYLE

Hey curvy girls,
I had been searching for a cute denim jacket to wear with a few of my prim and proper dresses. I wanted to add a youthful look to them. I know I could have bought an ordinary cropped denim jacket, but, I wanted something with more pizazz. The other day, I scored this great denim military jacket at the GAP. It was the last one in an XL and I knew it was meant for me. I thought I was going to lose it because I spotted another curvy girl watching it too. We circled around the t-stand that it was hanging on like two lions in the jungle ready to fight. I knew I had to pounce on it before she could, so, I went in for the kill and snatched it up and walked away. I didn’t want to look back because I knew she was probably rolling her eyes at me, but, I didn’t care.
After walking away with the jacket, I thought to myself, damn, this better fit. Luckily, it did. To top off my score of this military jacket, I remembered I had one of those new coupons from the GAP where you get 40% off one full price item every Wednesday. I was filled with glee when I plunked down my jacket on the counter and handed the cashier the coupon and saw the price of the jacket lower from $79.50 to $47.70. Score!
 
What I’m Wearing
Dress: Banana Republic
Jacket: GAP
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: H&M
Beat up Bag: DKNY

>LOFT FOR CURVY GIRLS? PLUS MY NEW KELSI DAGGER’S*

>Hey curvy girls,

Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. I have so much work to do at the office that I’ve been staying super late. Working for a hedge fund is no joke. At least when my workday is over I have this blog to look forward to. This week I got a little surprise in the mail (not really). Last week I ordered the Kelsi Dagger Juno sandals from Piperlime who was offering 20% off sandals and I was so excited to wear them.

Lately my social calendar has been nonexistent. Since I am a corporate working girl by day, I decided to wear my KD’s with one of my work outfits that I got from one of my fave stores Loft.

 Curvy girls, do not sleep on Loft! I’m serious. They are one of the few chain retail stores that carry up to a size 18 and XXL in misses and a size 16 and XL in petites. I became a fan of their clothes after graduating college in 2003 because I needed some fun young looking clothes for work. You don’t have to necessarily go to them for edgy pieces, but, you can find some really cute basic pieces that include trendy dresses, skirts, and tops. Which can easily be paired with your edgy looking pieces. The cuts are true to size and they truly offer some great girlie stuff (if that’s your style). Lately I have been obsessed with their white boyfriend blazer (shown above). I wore it so much that I had to retire it to the cleaners because it was beginning to look yellow. This entire outfit, jacket, top, and skirt is all from the Loft (you can click on the links to purchase). I am in love with the ikat print skirt which will probably be one of my go to pieces for the summer.

I was a little mad with Loft when they stopped carrying size 16’s in the store (due to the recession). However, you can get the 16’s and 18’s on their website. As curvy girls we have to support those stores that carry above a size 12 or 14 so they can start to send the larger sizes back to the store and we can stop losing our money in shipping. This is why I am also a fan of Banana Republic who carry’s size 16’s and Tall online. Their tops are also generously cut for us plus size curvy girls with a little extra something something at the top. If they don’t see us buying in the store then we will have no other choice but to continue shopping online, which sometimes is a hassle especially when you have to pay to return.

Sorry for the super long post, but, I just wanted to share a few of my new goodies with you.

Also, Kelsi Dagger is having AN ULTIMATE FAN fan contest on their Facebook page. Upload a picture of you in your favorite pair of KD shoes and you will be entered to win not one but three pairs of Kelsi Dagger shoes. For more info on the contest go HERE.

*Please Note: I have not been paid to promote any of these products. Nor were they given to me by any of the brands. I spent my hard earned money on everything. I am just a real consumer giving my real and honest opinion on the products I love.

Are any of you Loft fans? What do you think about their clothes?

>SKINNY GIRL FASHION FOR CURVY BODIES

>Hey curvy girls, 
Today’s skinny girl fashion for curvy bodies is brought to you by former Disney star Hillary Duff.

We love Hillary Duff for her youthful and simple chic looks. If you’re looking for a cute and cool look to beat the summer heat, then, this outfit is perfect. So many curvy girls are afraid of skinny jeans and probably can’t even fathom wearing a pair of white ones (Yikes!) unless we had the body of a model or an actress like Duff. Well, you know SC doesn’t believe in that. I believe plus size curvy girls can wear just as many styles and trends as any slim person. So, go ahead try you a pair of white skinny jeans, throw on your highest heels (or flats) and strut your curves this summer.

**Skinny Girl Fashion For Curvy Girls is a feature where we take a slim celebrities look and recreate it for Plus size curvy girls.
