The perfect plus-size romper for curvy women

Found it!!

The perfect floral plus-size romper that I am going to abuse this summer! It’s got gorgeous bell sleeves, a flattering v neck and open slit back. And the floral print is absolutely stunning! At $21.90, you can not go wrong! The best part is that this design actually fits the torso! But be warned to go one size up in the Forever 21 plus line.

I did a huge haul at Forever 21 plus last week and I can’t wait to share my purchases with you! But for now, all you need to know is that I bought this and you should too!

Ottawa Street Style: Black and yellow

Every lady needs an LDB (a.k.a little black dress)!

It’s classic, versatile and flattering. I found this little gem and I absolutely love the way the full skirt gives an illusion of an hourglass waist. I adore the pockets too. I just wish the fabric around my waist was thicker, to make me look more svelte… you know what I mean?
I love combining this dark dress with a fun pop of yellow and subtle red, white and blue details of my wedges. This whole ensemble is great for a date or going out with the girls after work. Swap your work cardigan for a denim jacket and you have yourself a styled LBD for your next GNO (a.k.a. Girls night out!).

Transformation: Swap & Commit

I did it. I started the pile. I am committed to swapping out all my old, frumpy clothes, for smaller sizes that fit me and flatter me better now. I just can’t wear clothes that look big on me. I have earned the right to wear fitted clothes and to show off my new curves. I want to feel sexy again.

This past weekend, I ventured off to Tanger Outlets (Kanaka) and scored some major deals on: a new pair of white jeans, a new pair of jean shorts and a jean jacket. I had to get used to picking out smaller sizes for myself… Also, it’s nice not being disappointed in the change room.

“It fits!” She hollered from the fitting room.

It’s really difficult to let go, especially if you love your wardrobe and have taken so much time and effort to build it. Some are key basics, some pieces are from my travels. But really, it’s just clothes. I have to learn to let go of them.

It seems glamorous to have a fashion blog, but I purchase everything that you see on here. And trust me, it gets expensive! I wish I was at the point where people were throwing things at me in exchange for a little product review or a shout out.

I am no charity case, but I am writing this post to announce that I would like to sell my gently used favorites for an exceptional price. I’m talking $5 a piece kinda deals.

Keep an eye out on my Facebook album where I’ll be selling my stuff online. If you’re looking for clothes between sizes14 and 16, or XL, this might be a nice way to get some new pieces in your closet for a fraction of the price!
