MAY’S MOST STYLISH CURVY CELEBRITY:JESSICA SIMPSON

Hey curvy girls:
Today is the first day of June and I am super excited because summer is on its way. I can’t wait to go to the summer barbecues and hearWill Smith and Jazzy Fresh’s Summertime theme song blasting from the speakers. I am also happy to announce that this month marks the 1 year anniversary for Stylish Curves. June 15th was the first blog post that I had written and sent out to all of my family and friends. You can check it out here. Boy, how time passes. I am truly glad to still be around a year later and I have you all to thank for that. I will be doing giveaways this month in honor of SC’s anniversary, so, stay tuned.

There were a few stylish curvy celebrities for the month of May, Jennifer Hudson, Amber Riley, etc. I think that Jessica Simpson deserves May’s Most Stylish Curvy Celebrity title for her ability to take her looks from the girl next door to a show stopping Hollywood glam goddess. SC thinks these were Jessica Simpson’s best looks for the month of May.

Tell us, does she deserve the title? VOTE!

CURVY CONVERSATIONS: IS CRYSTAL RENN LOSING WEIGHT TO FIT IN?

Hey curvy girls:
You all saw Crystal Renn walk in the Chanel St. Tropez show and probably thought to yourself, she’s lost a lot of weight. Did she do so for the Chanel show? Well, Crystal’s agent satisfies our curiosity.

According to People.com:
Not so, says Renn’s agent. “She is not trying to lose weight at all,” her Ford Models agent tells PEOPLE. “She fluctuates between a 10 and a 14.” At the moment, she seems to be on the lower end of that range, in part, her agent says, because she’s been so active recently.

“She went hiking in Patagonia for three weeks over the holidays and she firmed up and got a little smaller,” he says. “She has also been traveling like crazy and tends to be smaller when that happens.”

Do you feel there needed to be an explanation for her weight loss?

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.

POLKA DOTS

Hey curvy girls,

Yesterday was a beautiful day in Brooklyn. I just felt super girlie and decided to breakout my blue and white polka dot dress. I love this dress because the color is so bright and springy and I love how the silhouette flatters my shape. I love the pockets too. It also gave me the chance to wear my new strapless bra I told you about (old post). It held the the triple D’s up very nicely. As a curvy girl, I have never been afraid of strapless anything. It’s one of my favorite styles to wear along with a halter.  I wanted to keep the bright colors going, so, I decided to wear a yellow pearl necklace because I loved how the colors looked together.
What I’m Wearing
Dress: Faith21
Belt: Redress NYC
Necklaces:Claires
Bracelet:Vintage
Shoes: Banana Republic

STYLE BATTLE:JENNIFER VS LATIFAH

Hey curvy girls,
So far this month has been a great style week for both Jennifer Hudson and Queen Latifah. Our fellow curvy girls were out promoting both of their movies. If you haven’t heard already Jennifer Hudson will be playing Winnie Mandela in a biopic and Queen Latifah’s movie Just Wright hit theaters this weekend. The newly slimmer stars have really been embracing their smaller frames and I thought it would be cute to see who you guys think was the most stylish.

CURVY GIRL NEWS:SIMPLY BE COMING TO THE US

Hey curvy girls,

The UK based plus size clothing site Simply Be is now coming to the US this July. If you are unfamiliar with Simply Be. They carry sizes 14-32. The online shopping site not only offers their signature brand, but, carries other brands that cater to the plus size woman. Their demographic is ages 35+, but, the clothes are modern and trendy enough for the 20 something crowd.

I personally can’t wait until July for them to get here. Simply Be has some really cute and trendy pieces. Based on other blogger reviews (whom they’ve sent clothes to personally) like Fatshionable say that they love their clothes. All I have to say is, what took them so long? Now, I just hope the same amount of stylish pieces that are available on the UK site are available on the US site.

According to Stylelist:

Simply Be promises to use only plus-size models for its catalog and Web site.

A British plus-size clothing company is in hot pursuit of the American market. Simply Be, which is devoted to women size 10 to 28 (U.S.), will launch here this summer, with a Web site debut in July and a catalog rollout in August.


The Simply Be customer is both confident in herself and in her size,” spokesperson Clotilde Gros tells StyleList. “[She] likes to dress up when she goes out with her friends and wants to look good.”

Here are a few pieces from their site.

WHAT TO WEAR TO A COCKTAIL PARTY

Hey curvy girls,
The other day I was chatting with one of my closest friends about cocktail parties and what to wear to one. In my opinion, I think a dress is always the best way to go. Although, I’ve seen some really fierce pants suits that are cocktail worthy. I think a dress is more fun, flirty, and sophisticated depending on how you wear it. I decided to offer a great dress option from ASOS (which was featured in an older post) in case some of you were looking for a cocktail dress for an upcoming event or party.

I think of cocktail parties as a chic event to show off your curves in an elegant way. To punch up your look add a little bit of false lashes to draw attention to your eyes. This may sound corny, but, I’m all for cocktail rings whether it’s day or night. Also, put on a perfume that has a lingering scent, it’s a definite conversation starter when you smell good. Also, it helps people to remember you.
