Hey curvy girls all over the world,

FB fan Maria asked SC where did Mo’Nique get her silver ruched dress that she wore to this year’s Academy Award nominations. Well Maria, Besides wearing shaved legs Mo’Nique is wearing a Tadashi Shoji laced ruched dress from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. This chic dress retails between $300-$400.

Below is the black version to Mo’Niques dress, the sleeveless version, and last years sequin longer sleeve version. Something for everyone. All Tadashi Shoji dresses can be purchased at Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales.



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Reader Jamie asked if SC could help find her a hot blazer for plus sizes.

Jamie, I know what you mean. I’m getting tired of the plain old boring blazers that junk up the plus size section in stores. SC found 9 blazers that are anything but ordinary.

Check it out:

Try a structured 6 button blazer in plaid

Polka dot blazers are girlie and fun
A peplum blazer is super feminine

 Try a bright colored or animal print blazer in velvet

Sequin blazers are perfect for a night out
Tuxedo blazers are chic over a sexy dress or with denim
A waterfall blazer adds a little trendiness to your look. (P.S. this would be perfect for your 21st b’day)
A striped trapeze style blazer looks super chic with a pencil or mini skirt.
A hip length one button leather blazer is so chic and will automatically add a cool factor to any of your looks.



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
SC reader Krystyna sent in this question:

Where do you find Michael Kors in sizes that will fit your curvy body? I have not been able to find any Michael Kors items above a size 14. But now that in the past year I have gained some weight (sz 14 to sz 18, most of which has attached itself to my stomach, butt, and thighs), Michael Kors clothing has slowly filtered out of my wardrobe. I adore his dresses and tops and would love to know how I can score some pieces to fit the me that I am now, not last year’s size.

Would you mind sharing any tips you might have?

Krystyna, above are a few styles from Michael Kors ready to wear line, Michael Michael Kors. The line carries plus sizes 1X- 3X and 14W-24W. You can also find Michael’s plus size styles in just about all of the major department stores and on his website Michael Kors. One of the great things about MK’s line is that he is offering the same styles in straight sizes in plus sizes.
For those of you who are new to my blog, you must know that I am a super fan of 3 designers. Michael Kors, Donna Karan, and Yves Saint Laurent. These designers have impeccable cuts and their designs are the epitome of classic style. Michael Kors has been doing his plus size line for a few years now and each year the designs get better. I just wish he would advertise his plus line a little more so that other plus size women can get to know him more.

Also, my adopted big sis and fellow plus size fashion blogger Marie Denee did a great post about 7 designers you never knew did plus sizes. Check it out Here
