>MAKE A STATEMENT WITH COLORED LEATHER GLOVES

>

One of my favorite things to buy when Fall arrives are leather gloves. My obsession started back in 1999 when I found my first red pair on sale for $14.95 at TJMaxx. I prefer colorful leather gloves opposed to black ones because they automatically make you standout. I can’t tell you how many times a cashier or someone on the street has stopped me to compliment me on a pair of my vibrant colored gloves.

 Last year, I lost my favorite pair of leather gloves. Since gloves are one of those items that can easily be lost like sunglasses, I try not to pay too much for them. The max for me is $50, which is why I was extra heart broken when I lost my green argyle gloves that cost $50 and the fact that I managed to keep them for 3 years. Now, there have been times when I lost one of them and everytime I would lose one glove, somehow it found it’s way back to me. Once I left one glove in a Duane Reade in Manhattan and didn’t realize it until I got all the way to Brooklyn. I immediately called the Duane Reade and asked if they had seen it and to my surprise they had it. The next day we were reunited and it felt so good.

This weekend, I was thinking about my beloved green argyle leather gloves and decided to start a search for a new pair of colorful leather gloves. You might be thinking to yourself: Why leather? Because it’s just something about that butter soft feeling. Why colorful ones? Because they spice up outerwear and make you standout. Plus, they look so chic peaking out from your coat sleeve. I am a super fan of long leather gloves because they’re so dramatic. I also like when other fabrics are combined with the leather it makes the gloves that much more unique.

I wanted to share with you some of the styles I was checking out and hey, who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to get you a pair.

Here are my picks:

>LANE BRYANT OFFERS WIDE WIDTH/CALF BOOTS FOR FALL

>

If you have wide feet and thick calves then you know how hard it is to find cute boots to fit your feet. You spend endless hours in stores trying to close up a boot that won’t zip pass your ankles, and when and if you do get it to zip up your feet look like they are about to explode inside the boot. 
Well, Lane Bryant has the answer to your Fall boot problems. They’re adding wide widths and wide calves to their boot collection.

According to LB:

Lane Bryant has expanded their shoe collection to feature the hottest shoes and boots and the entire collection comes in sizes 8W – 12W. Boots also feature wide calves.

With a boot circumference of 17 in. around the calf, Lane Bryant boots provide a comfortable and stylish solution for women who thought they could never wear boots.

Two snaps for LB thinking about women with wide feet and thick calves. This is a great direction for LB. We like that the styles are easy to incorporate in any wardrobe.

The little black dress will always remain a wardrobe must have, however, we think it’s time to shake things up. Red is one of the major color trends for the 2010 Fall season.

DID REFINERY 29 FAIL AT FINDING FALL FASHION FOR THE PLUS SIZE?

Today I was reading Refinery 29’s  site and I came across this post titled, Fall Fashion for Plus Size Ladies. Once I viewed the post I was a little disappointed. All I could say was, “Hell To the Naw!” (in my Whitney Houston voice) While some pieces were cute, the  looks just wasn’t screaming stylish Fall fashion for plus sizes. I appreciate the curvy girl love from Refinery 29 (I do enjoy reading their site), I just didn’t appreciate some of the looks. So, Stylish Curves decided to give you a couple of Fall fashion looks for the plus size curvy girl who wants to look modern and most importantly stylish.

Floral Prints For Fall

Since floral prints are equated with being sweet and pretty a great way to toughen up a floral dress is with a cropped or motorcycle style jacket and a pair of sassy killer heels. (Click on pictures to purchase any of the items)
Capes For Fall

Capes are coming back in a major way this upcoming Fall season. We’ve already seen stars like Rachel Bilson rock the cape look and ASOS offers this wonderful green military style cape specifically for plus sizes. Pair it with a slouchy sweater like the one above from Dorothy Perkins and a pair of skinny jeans and tall suede boots. (Click on pictures to purchase any of the items pictured)

Lace For Fall

  Lace is a great option for evening cocktail parties and it looks like this trend will be making another appearance this Fall season
